Why you mad though? The article doesn't even say she is coming back.

BTW, wasn't she studying Economics or something like that?

LEGEND. Nicole. Caro. Aga. Sloane. Taylor.

It would be cool but I'm not getting my hopes up. IIRC, there were sightings of Mary Pierce on practice courts at the Bolleteri Academy in 2007-8 which led to whisperings of a comeback which never materialised...

I think BG said on Twitter last week he saw her hitting with Radek when he was at the Nick B. academy.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

I hope this is true. She had so much talent and it will be interesting to see how she will do on the tour now

Not getting my hopes up but at least she's playing tennis in some way again, it's a start.

Someone should tweet Brad Gilbert or a tennis analyst asking. If she somehow does come back and discovers her form that got her to the top 10 with this state of the tour, throw her in contention for slams.

That Google translation is priceless.

Petra shouldn't have appropriated Nicole's dream.

Anyway, we shall see what happens.

The correct translation is "In the meantime, Nicole's dream [winning a Wimbledon title] became a reality for Petra".

Re: Nicole Vaidisova: The Return? - She finally started hitting the ball again!

I can see her making a comeback, but don't see her returning to anywhere near her 2006-07 level, let alone becoming the Slam contender she had the potential to be. I can picture her being an ITF journeywoman for years before finally reaching her zenith with a return to the bottom end of the top 40 and a MM title in about 5 years' time.

Impossible.

She's still only 22? What a freaking waste.

* 2008 * 2012 * Maria Sharapova * 2004 * 2006 *
* Ivanovic * Watson * BMS * Gavrilova * Voskoboeva * Robson * Kvitova * Mladenovic * Lisicki * FutureGoat Konjuh


Elena Baltacha. Never forgotten.

I tweeted at Brad Gilbert asking if he had heard anything about a Vaidisova comeback and he replied so eloquently with, "i have not geard anything but it would not suprise me at sll"

Take from that what you will
