Re: OFFICIAL retirements 2012

Put Meghann Shaughnessy on the list, she has retired from the game as she won't play doubles anymore.

Re: OFFICIAL retirements 2012

here's now an article about selima sfar where she officially says she retired we didn't add her last year cause she didn't annouce her retirement officially...

http://gulfnews.com/sport/tennis/sfa...egion-1.986210

Fond memories

One of Sfar's fondest memories of her playing days was right here during the inaugural edition of this tournament, when she beat Silvija Talaja and Barbara Schett before going down in three sets to Nathalie Tauziat in front of an adoring crowd on centre court in 2001.

Since taking a step back from tennis, she has been doing a lot of commentating with Qatar-based Al Jazira TV. "But I still make time for practice as I want to keep fit so that I can join the Legends Tour possibly from next season," she said.

wish you all the best for your future selima!

Re: OFFICIAL retirements 2012

just found out about another retirement that was probably expected by a lot of us but never announced officially, so we didn't add her to the list last year:

Lilia Osterloh

i found an article about what she seems to be doing now:

http://www.stanford.edu/group/resed/...rupal/node/163

"Join us at EAST House on Monday February 20th for an exciting presentation by Lilia Osterloh, former WTA tennis professional,..."

wish you all the best in your future life, lilia! you will be missed on the wta-tour!

Could be the USTA and the media are putting too much pressure on the coming black "hopes". They need to stop rushing these players along before they are ready to reach the WTA level of competition. If not, then Sloane Stevens, Madison Keys and Taylor Townsend will be the next victims.

Re: OFFICIAL retirements 2012

Oh yeah I actually searched the thread on 'Advanced Search' but I couldn't remember its title so I created a thread myself about her retirement

MIRJANA LUCIC-BARONI ☢ | SAM STOSUR ☯ | MARTINA HINGIS ♚ | DANIELA HANTUCHOVA ✯ | MADISON KEYS ☢ | OLGA PUCHKOVA ❤

Dont squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Re: OFFICIAL retirements 2012

Megan Moulton-Levy: "...Hanging in there you? ..."

Angie Haynes: "I am good. Living lifE. Not worried bout tennis"

Angela Haynes Cheering Thread

Re: OFFICIAL retirements 2012

Mashona Washington announced on twitter that she retired

I think we all knew she was retired, but on twitter she explicitly says:

"Not this year! I'm retired!! Going into the medical field!!"



gl to you in the future, mashona. you'll be missed!
