Re: Mara Santangelo has officially retired from single
That really sucks. Her game was certainly unorthodox and the sidespin on her groundstrokes was just weird.
But her gamestyle was a big reason why Italy was able to not only be competitive but win so many FED CUPs last decade.
When most people think Italy, they don't think all surface players with all court games but Mara really helped to complete their team especially when they needed a player for indoor/hard court rubbers.
I wish her the best in her next step in life.
