Re: Bring back one player and retire another from Generation Suck

The more the merrier. I'm cool with bringing back them all back but especially Tati, Alisa, Agnes and Timea, these four I do miss. Can't think of a player I really dislike enough that I wish they just totally disappeared. I wouldn't even wish that on Wickmayer or Lisicki. I would be pleased if Azarenka didn't kick Radwanska's butt what seems like every single week but even so, I wouldn't want her to just vanish from the tour.

The simple truth is this generation doesn't have nearly as many elite players as did the amazing Williams generation that is now fading into the distance. But what this generation does have is depth. It might not have a many great players but it has a lot of good players, probably more than any preceeding generation. That would be it's one saving grace. Hence we need every decent player on the tour we can get right now whether they are a "ballbasher" a "pusher" or whatever. So I don't actually wish for anyone to go away. I do however wish for more players to join the party.

In : Nicole
Out: Petra

@Maria fans wanting Vika to retire. I can see why that would be convenient for you .
Hope Timea returns anyway.
