Arantxa is still playing Hopman Cup and Australian Open at this stage!
There hasnt been any press yet here to say that she's not coming to Australia or that she has been replaced in the Hopman Cup which starts in 7 weeks!!
I'm confident Arantxa will be playing so for her fans dont expect an immediate retirement. I suspect Arantxa will play on next year, maybe a scaled down schedule, but I know deep in her heart that she wants to play 1 more French Open and not have her last appearance there to be a flogging by Marrero
