Does anyone think Schiavone will retire after RG

Hi guys,

Do you think Schiavone will retire after defending her title, she looks really unhappy and her results have not been great for her

I think she'll try to hang on 'til the Olympics

I think only a bad injury will make her retire before she's 34-35.

There is no indication of her wanting to retire.

The best of luck to all tennis players; The game is on!

P.S.Well,... special luck to Agnieszka Radwanska, Marta Domachowska, Daniela Hantuchova, Urszula Radwanska
Bally, Rest In Peace!

Schiavone has always had ups and downs with motivation during her career..this is nothing new. expect to see a boost in motivation at the Italian Open and French Open

Let's hope so, she is only one handed backhand now at the top!

I don't think retirement is imminent for her.

she should, but she won't. she's happy to hang around and make a fool of herself.

I'd say yes, but only if she sustains a nasty injury otherwise, there's no reason for her not to hang on for one more season to play the Olympics.

It just seems a shame she is losing to people like Mattek Sands on clay!

Re: Does anyone think Schiavone will retire after RG

If she has no motivation, she can retire from tennis with a grand slam and a highest of n.4 in the world, and then she could get a WC for Olympics. It's sad to see a so talented player lose this way.

Why would she retire when the Olympics are so close?
