Not so optimistic about her return any time soon, I just read an article (http://isport.blesk.cz/clanek/blesk-...k-rodicum.html) saying that she has already left Radek's house and that her younger brother helped her carry all the heavy baggage because she has a planned shoulder surgery. No more details.

Didn't mean she expect to play tennis again?

I don't get why on earth people assume that splitting from Stepanek would mean she would automatically make a comeback to tennis? Do people seriously think Stepanek was banning her from playing tennis or something?

Sorry, no more info. Maybe after that surgery she'll do a comeback? But she doesn't have to for financial reasons, as she has reportedly earned about $3M in prize money and $15M under a lucrative contract with Reebok.
So she has enough to live off the interest without having to work at all.

Fuck. One can only imagine how much hair was being pulled out during her notorious tanking spree of 08-09. Although, I'm guessing that that figure was only the potential worth of the contract (performance bonuses over a stipulated time frame etc.), as opposed to the amount of money that she actually received.

Still, I agree that she probably still has a few million in the bank. Even just before she quit, she was working with Eric Van Harpen, who, IIRC, has a fee of roughly $35000 a month, so clearly money wasn't an issue.

I hope she comes back. I can't wait for her rematch against Stacey Tan!

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

The shoulder news is disconcerting..... shoulder issues (Unless they are in the non-serving shoulder...which rarely ever happens anyways) are never good.... as Sharapova and Capriati can attest to.

But if she manages to overcome that and has the will to train again (which admittedly are big ifs.... Vaidisova sadly never seemed like the type that was as determined as say a Serena or Sharapova) she has the natural talent to do well... especially in a lull period in women's tennis.

I miss her..... there for a bit in 07-08 it looked like we had an awesome crop of players that were rising up to replace the champions before them.... and it really didn't turn out that way unfortunately.

Iveta's twitter has a pic of her and Nicole saying
SURPRISE I was talking about! Nicole and me, it's time to get back in shape.. For both of us. Tennis will come later
Then there's a pic of them that I'll post once I have a computer.

Someone asked if Nicole would be playing tennis too and Iveta said yes.

The divorce is now very very official.
Here are the tweets:
‏@IvetaBenesova: SURPRISE I was talking about! Nicole and me, it's time to get back in shape.. For both of us. Tennis will come later

@ChicharitoRus: @IvetaBenesova Is it Nicole Vaidisova??? I can't believe it! What will Radek say?

‏@IvetaBenesova: @ChicharitoRus Yes it is! Radek who??

Another one:

@anna_tennisfan: @IvetaBenesova will the tennis come for both of you, too?

‏@IvetaBenesova: @anna_tennisfan yes

I Also think, the divorce is ugly, another tweet:
@IvetaBenesova: "Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha" Quite a circus Paes/Stepanek Will they French kiss after match?? #usopen

Here is Benesova's twitter: https://twitter.com/IvetaBenesova

She can snatch lots of wigs in the current top 30!
