Who retired from tennis to keep from getting??

What players retired to keep from geting whipped??

EDIT: I mean who retired from Tennis to keep from being beaten. I am not talking about retiring from a match.

IMO, Hingis was one that retired from tennis to keep the youngsters from whipping her. I am sure they are others!

Correct.

And I need to edit my OP. I meant who retired from tennis to keep from getting whipped, not retiring from a match..

Re: Who retired to keep from getting??

Hingis for sure.

Henin was holding 2 slams when she quit the first time, but I could see that being her reasoning the second time.

No, and you be blind. I posted this to see who retired to keep from getting beat by the up and coming. If the shoe fits Hingis, then so be it..

I always did like Henin's game. Don't know why she quit, but it wasn't because of getting beat by other players.I think Henin's reason to quit was personal.

Whatever did happen to her? She was coming along pretty good at one time too.

True. Alex had a 3-2 h2h vs. Jen, all between 2000 and 2002:
