Re: OFFICIAL retirements 2012

They probably belong in the 2011 thread but someone on the challenger sub-forum said Zuzana Kucova has retired.

Likewise, I'm fairly certain Tatiana Poutchek has retired. The only tournament she's played since the US Open was a 25k ITF in Argentina, only because she was helping out Darya Kustova who I've heard she's coaching now.

I suppose the writing was on the wall - Zuzana was absent from the Lagos 25k events while Tatiana didn't play Tashkent and you know something's wrong when they're missing from those events.

Re: OFFICIAL retirements 2012

I think Kumiko Iijima as retired. She isn't in Australia for the 25K swing , and on her facebook she talks about getting a Canadian Work visa..

Re: OFFICIAL retirements 2012

Maybe Georgatou

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: OFFICIAL retirements 2012

Poutchek is now Fed Cup Captain.. I wonder if she can pursue an aviation career since that is her dream.

Tatiana has the perfect temperament to be a pilot.

Re: OFFICIAL retirements 2012

She was on the entry-list for a 25k ITF in Moscow (priority two) a few days ago but she seems to have pulled out now.

I see now she was in Mildura as well as priority 1 but withdrew as well. Curious indeed.

Re: OFFICIAL retirements 2012

i guess selima sfar retired, too?! played her last singles match about 12 month ago and her last doubles match was in luxembourg last october and it seems she works for al jazeera now

http://www.youtube.com/user/selimasfar/videos

so i guess she finally called it a career. but haven't heard it from an official source. maybe we have to wait a little longer....
