I can't understand why Eva Dyrberg is going to retire!
She's still young and I think she has a bright future ahead of her!

She has already broken into TOP 100 and I think she can improve in 2003 or even crack into TOP50..!!!She has potential to be a good player.....so sad to learn that she has retired in sych a young age..

Holly retired but she keeps appearing on the Powerbar ad at tennis magazine

Eva took a very brave decision, sweeping tennis to studies. That was cool.

Magdalena Grzybowska is also an unsure retiree. She said that Surubaya might be her last event

All the best to Anastasia Myskina, Elena Bovina and Svetlana Kuznetsova!
Watch out: Myriam Casanova, Maria Kirilenko and Maria Sharapova!

Yep, Holly Parkinson definitely retired. She got married and is now coach at a University in Hawaii. She played this summer for "fun" only.

Coach in Hawaii? Sounds like a great life to me. Constant sunshine, beautiful ocean, fun people, play a little for "fun" . . . what else can anyone ask for? Lucky Holly.

I had no idea Plischke and Sidot had retired. They were really good players at one point. Maybe they couldn't stand the grind anymore. Dyrberg retiring to go to medical school is pretty cool. Maybe she only played pro tennis long enough to earn the money needed for school. Good for her. She's a woman with her priorities straight.
