Angry Whispers that it's Monica's last US Open

Why does that interviewer guy keep saying that?

Then Pat went on to say that the "whispers" are getting louder and louder as Seles struggles to win matches. *sigh* So the two players who aren't intimidated by power get Seles in their draw, and now Monica should retire because she lost a set to 'em? I wonder what Pat thinks of Sampras? A lot worse results this year than Monica but I don't hear that interviewer guy or Pat saying there are "whispers" going around about this being Pete's last Open. I guess Pete's words that he will play next year is more clearly heard than Monica's I still love to play and will untill I'm tired of it, which she has been saying for the past 6 years.

I was also tired of the commentators talking about "Monica's last US Open this year". Monica denied this in her last interview, even her coach denied today on TV. It's just annoying that they have to keep bringing it up. Anyways I just hope Monica can raise her level for the next matches. Go Monica!

guess martina will retire too, kimmy almost lost too, retire is in the air and justine troubles in 1 set against the number 1102(?) embrassing retirement right away!
guess the wta will be empty after this tournament

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I guess Venus should seriously consider retirement coz she lost TWO game in the second set at the moment

They also said that Monica has not signed up for any tournaments this fall. Is this true, and if so, why?

And she's said all year that she'd play the tour finals if they're not in Germany.

Yeah, Mike was pretty adamant and responded quickly when he denied Monica's retiring...

He said she's really been working hard on bettering her defensive ball and flexibility with her trainer...Sounds like she's working hard!...She really wants to if her body will work with her...
