Some words from Martina H.
I found that today in the Swiss newspapers. Since nobody else's talking about it, I post it.
Present in L.A. but only for promotional purpose, Martina Hingis told she's wondering about the following of her careeer. "If I see that I can't go past quarter or semi-finals in the big tournaments, I think that I'm gonna take quickly the decision to stop definetly tennis", she said.
(...) Martina put a term to her season after being defeated by Dementieva in Filderstadt.
"I haven't been able to recover properly. my ankle is still swollen, and, especially, I'm too slow. So, I'm gonna take my time before returning to competition. No firm date has been chosen for my return."
Her coming to Australia next January is then uncertain.
She's not afraid by a life without tennis
"If, eventually, I call it quit, another life will start. A door will have shut down but a lot of others will be ready to open up. And I should really think about starting a family!"
