Ahsha Rolle retires !

"Dear family, friends, and fans, I would like to thank you for all your love and support throughout my tennis career. Unfortunately, some injuries have taken me out of the game. However, I will still be active in the sport by coaching. If anyone is interested any lessons, events, or a traveling coach let me know. Love you all, Ahsha"

That's what she wrote on her wall .
Sad to see her career is ending like this, she definetly had potential to be a solid Top 100 player.
There were glimpses of that last year but unfortunately, there was never some real consistency.
I guess she will be mostly known for her match against Golovin at the US OPEN.
Enjoy your post tennis life Ahsha

Re: Ahsha Rolle retires !

Rolle has the weapons, but her fitness was always a bit questionable. Shame injuries didn't allow her the opportunity to really test how far she could take her game, but best wishes to her post-professional career

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

George Carlin

I really thought Ahsha would pull through.
So much talent, things just didn't fall in the right places for these girls.

I'm banking on the new group. I just wasnt feeling the old group. Oudin is on her way down. Goodbye Asha gl in your next life phase.

Re: Ahsha Rolle retires !

Good luck. I didn't follow her career real closely, but I always got the impression she was a good competitor and nice person.

Re: Ahsha Rolle retires !

Sad that she isn't ending on her own terms, but it is probably for the best. She's been struggling outside the top 250 for years now. I remember reading somewhere that her parents took out of their 401k to help fund her travelling expenses. She was probably only digging a deeper financial hole.

Best of luck to her in future endeavors

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

Re: Ahsha Rolle retires !

Sad to see - she had had a good event at $25k Midland, reaching sf beating Luzhanska, but then she lost her last match 6-1 3-1 ret to Federica Grazioso in Midland $100k qualifying, so it looks like that injury was the last straw. But you can't blame her retiring if injuries mean that she can't move out of the ITFs.

Re: Ahsha Rolle retires !

I'd pay to be coached by Ahsha, she was a good tennis player and could have done much more in her career.

Good luck in your post-tennis life, Ahsha, you're an amazing girl

Was Jamea the one with the most potential in this group?
