Re: kim retiring again?

Didn't her camp just announce that she'll be entering Rome and Madrid in preparation for Roland Garros?

"Dit moet een paar dagen bezinken. We moeten evalueren hoe de voorbije maanden verlopen zijn, ook fysiek. En daarna richt ik mij vol op Roland Garros, met de toernooien van Madrid en Rome als voorbereiding."

she's evaluating how the previous months went and then she's going to focus on Roland Garros.

Re: kim retiring again?

stopping that part timer from winning another slam at AO was the best thing done by Vika this year

Re: kim retiring again?

Filip Dewulf is saying it on Twitter. He is usually a very reliable source.

Kim Clijsters contemplating (early) retirement. Says her body is holding her back. Few days with family in law to think things over. #SEOpen

No doubt injuries are a nuisance - but would we really be hearing this stuff about retirement if Kim had won that final set against Vika and took AO title?

Re: kim retiring again?

Wouldn't surprise me at all. Similar pattern to 2007. Not just the injuries, but motivation.

She's evaluating how the previous month's gone? I can save her some time and tell her quite simply "not very well."

Re: kim retiring again?

She wont play any clay court tournaments apart from RG maybe yet again and then she'll announce her retirement following a farewell tour where WTA will be issuing weeping tissues with her pictures.

Re: kim retiring again?

At least it wont take her very long to evaluate the last few months.

Re: kim retiring again?

Wouldn't surprise me, she knows young players are stepping up, so she's not going to vulture anymore easy slams like AO 2011 anymore A few more Makarova-like losses for Serena and she'll be gone too.
