Re: Players calling time this year

It's really sad and difficult for Agnes though. Her problems are with her back. It's not like she sprained her ankle and hasn't dedicated herself fully to a comeback effort. If she goes out and has pain, she pulls the plug.

So much talent down the drain.

Re: Players calling time this year

I wonder if this injury might turn out to be a blessing in disguise for Kuznetsova. Even though posters on here too often reach for suggesting slumping players should take a "break" as if mental exhaustion or lack of motivation is their problem (this has been suggested for Ivanovic, Wozniacki and Jankovic in recent years, when all those players seem to have plenty motivation, their problem is lack of confidence and games not being good enough, which taking a few months away from playing matches would only exacerbate) - in Kuznetsova's case it really DOES seem to be a case of her just not being motivated enough, seeing as she is still capable of pulling top 10-level performances out of the bag from nowhere when she wants to (against Queen Vulture at RG this year). Maybe like so many players in their mid-20s who are forced out of the game for an extended period, maybe being bored at home will make Kuznetsova realise how much she enjoys the game and will encourage her to really dedicate herself to it for the next few years. Now that I think about it, even though her form has gone AWOL for very long periods at a time in the past few years, she's actually been pretty much constantly playing, she rarely gets serious injuries - so maybe she just hasn't had a chance to miss the game until now.

Pennetta is another one who I'd be surprised to see retire - even with her injury, she's managed to put in decent results at times this year (Rome & the Olympics). And that's even leaving aside her continued doubles success.

Re: Players calling time this year

Oh, and on Date Krumm - I've been assuming she would retire this year, but you would assume she would want to retire in Tokyo, and we haven't heard anything about it, so maybe she's going to carry on after all?

Re: Players calling time this year

Zvonareva? She allegedly ended her season and her top 5 days are over. May want to start her career in politics right away?

Benesova want babies soon just like Dulko.

Baltacha is probably done too. Her emotional reaction after losing at the Olympics probably confirmed that she isn't going to be coming back even after her injury is recovered.
My crystal ball sucks. Peschke reversed her decision, and now plans to play on in 2013.

Re: Players calling time this year

Will Paola Suárez keep playing? And what about Husárová? I kind of got the feeling that both came back for the Olympics (although Janette didn't get to play).

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

I really really hope Kremer won't retire before her 500th win. That would be such a pity.
