till after olympics

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

nah, conchi loves being on the circuit too much, where she has a lot of friends on tour. she'll stay on, playing doubles as well until at least 32/33, and then play the over-35s doubles. she had a strong finish to 2002, and will most probably be top-30 by end of Jan/Feb and possibly top-20 again by May.

her game is less about speed and more about touch and finesse, wbich means if she's not injured, she'll be just as effective in her tennis for 2-3 more years. ASV's main weapon, speed, is the thing that fades with age of course, so she increasingly found that she had less to bring to the table against her opponents.

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.

She showed improvements at the end of this year which I think will prompt her to play throughout 2003. Probably retire at the end of next year, with Amanda Coetzer and Silvia Farina Elia and possibly Monica Seles and Jennifer Capriati!

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

[center]Rafael Nadal : 10 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1 [/center]

Monica will NOT retire before Conchita. She already missed time due to the stabbing incident. That would give her reason to play longer. She said so herself.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

i think we know that monica is something of an attention-seeker (the autobiography, the traumatic tone to her statements) and a people-pleaser, so i think she will always announce well in advance of when she will retire, to give the chance for fans to bid her farewell, and go out on a big stage e.g. US Open 2004. I think she'll make an announcement at the end of 2003 season, that the 2004 season will be her farewell tour. there's no way monica will just quietly slip away.

i think conchi is also a bit more like a sukova, zvereva, stubbs, raymond, tauziat type. somebody who doesn't make a show of retiring, continuing to play until a late time, even well past best form, but is sort of retired, but then playing some doubles here and there, possibly coaching a la Tarabini.

i say monica will play until end of 2004 unless 2003 is really bad, and conchi will reture around 2004 as well (after olympics) but play occasionally until she's about 33.

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget.
