Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

I'm not that surprised. I kinda expected it, actually.

I HIGHLY doubt we'll see her comeback now like others have said, since the Olympics sounded like her main reason for coming back. I just hope she doesn't pull a Capriati or Seles and waits a few more years to officially retire.

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

This is not a surprise sad to see it happen just the same. It makes me wonder if Lindsay will be the next olympic withdrawal.

Mary just retire. You've had a great career, go play World Team Tennis or something.

She didn't ruin Amélie's chances to go. If Amélie really wanted to go she could have waited until Mary makes her decision.
I think Amélie simply got pissed off because she found out about the selection thru press instead of FFT and simply pulled out.
I feel about neither one of them going but then again Amélie still has a possibility to change her mind if she really wants to go.

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

Now Pierce is Copycat of Chakvetadze

BTW did anybody else notice at WTA official site LATEST POLL? They finaly realize that something is change with Belgium womens tennis... but somebody must inform mr Larry Scott about French current "problems"

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

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)

That's very true indeed. I do wished Mary told us that earlier on. So that Amelie not ended up withdraw it herself.

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

stop complaining about Améie's withdrawal , people. She KNEW Mary was probably going to not be ready , so SHE could have waited a bit longer too before withdrawing

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...
