"Mary Pierce officially retired" said French DTN

Mary Pierce's career is over : http://www.welovetennis.fr/wta/9749-...aite-de-pierce or http://www.rmc.fr/edito/sport/67826/...resmo-bientot/
and in english version : http://translate.google.fr/translate...state0=&swap=1

French DTN is the French tennis boss, currently former tennis player Patrice Dominguez.

When he says something, it's official.

Good for her, now her fans won't have to be suffering waiting for a comeback, Myskina should do the same.. (or she done it already?)

Sad news, but nothing unexpected. Have a nice life outside the tennis courts, Mary!

It's about time you know. Everyone must have prepared for this since she didn't come back last fall.

Re: "Mary Pierce officially retired" said French DTN

I highly doubt she retired. A week ago she said like:

I'm faitfull that I will come back as a strong top 10 player at the end of 2009.

Pierce and Davenport within a month, that's alot to take

What happened to Pierce in Linz (and the injuries in 2006 overall) were just so unfortanate because she had such a good 2005. If this is true, then it is a sad end to what was a great career.

Re: "Mary Pierce officially retired" said French DTN

Better this way for sure, even though she hasnt said it herself ... Reading her last interview again to L'Equipe, tennis looked like a good but old memory to her. She has a new life now!
Hope Mary will be a true source of inspiration for younger players as much as she has delighted her fans during her career!
