What happened to Sabine Klaschka? I remember playing brilliantly at 2005 Wimbledon and then I haven't heard anything from her since.
She's more a journey woman .
She has so much talented and but she isnt professional enough to practice enough or to play more tournaments.
She's the whole opposite of her sister Carmen, she always works very hard but Carmen doesnt have the talent of Sabine
Julia Abe Any player should know what happened to her, you know, she had friends for sure, and people realized she'd dissapeared. So I guess she had personal problems (family, health...), left tennis and that was it.
Maybe Cocheteaux started hating herself after what happened with Lexy. Or maybe Samantha Stevenson made it look like Cocheteaux had an unfortunate accident that injured her for life Well she probably is capable
The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
Interesting topic! I'm afraid I don't really have anything of note to contribute, but I remember these players...
Cocheteux had (has!) exactly the same birthday as me (aah, outing my age here ) and I remember vaguely (but not that much) (sorry Amelie!) following her career for precisely that reason.
I remember Louise Latimer's red hair (oh, and she played a good match against Anke Huber at Wimbledon one year).
The Julia Abe situation seems quite strange. I used to watch tennis on German TV at the time and I was familiar with her from their coverage. I'm reminded of some of the other German players from around that time: Andrea Glass, Bianka Lamade... (And now I can't get any tennis on TV at all, not really!! :tantrum: )
Oh yes, and Chladkova too: didn't she make Wimb QF one year? (I apologise if this has been mentioned: I've had a somewhat sickly few days... )
