I thought Amélie might be selected for the singles and go now.

Of course that French Federation is guilty, not Mary. They should say Razzano that she will be 1st reserve before situation about Pierce and Golovin will be more clean. In womens competition Mauresmo and Pierce is best French players in last 70 years, won 4 slams and FED CUP for France and reach #1 and #3 place in the worlds ranking (and Mauresmo is also silver medalist from last Olympics), so i dont think Razzano will complain b/c such logical decission... and chances that Pierce or Golovin will not play is very big. For example Russian Federation after stupid decission from Athens/04 to not select after RG/04 worse ranked than Petrova Wimbledon/04 champion Sharapova - this time already after Safina reach RG final involve her in team instead better ranked TOP8 Chakvetadze.

In tennis at Olympics (ATP/WTA) will be compete about 50 countries and about half of all withdraws players will be from same country - FRANCE So their Tennis Federation is simple Useless in best case.

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

Mary ! I kind of expected this but it would've been great to see her play!

I think we'll hear a retirement announcement very soon

This has annoyed me endlessly. What a selfish wench! Amelie really wanted to go...and Pierce sits on her behind thinking about it for days on end? She was never going to go, but probably wanted some last ditch effort of fame and glory.

She always was slow.
Oh, just take a chill pill. Tennis is an individual sport, Mary can do whatever floats her boat. And Momo had no chance in hell to perform in China so that doesn't change anything. Stop being delusional, she's old and burnt out.

Mary.

I'm so sad she can't play and I have a bad feeling she may never come back.

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

Realistically speaking, did anyone expect her to really play?
This is hardly a surprise.

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

what a shame for pierce and the fft; no pity for france as a whole, though, as i am sure that they will medal in other disciplines.

hope that amelie does not change her mind; though according to whitehead's boy she didn't want to go anyway.

Then you have Michael Jackson & that name speaks for itself, no hype needed at all.

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

Didn't she mainly want to come back cause of the Olympics? I guess she has nothing to return for now then...
