Magnus Norman thinking of retirement...

I heard it on CNN-Sports that he is thinking of retirement.. after an emergency knee operation just last week...
After the 2000 french open finals.. its seems everything went downhill after that....
Just kinda sad... He is only 26 years old!!!

Shame - I always enjoyed watching him, and that FO 2000 final was absolutely brilliant.

He is only 26 but his injuries have been very severe - and to compete on the men's side you have to be very strong and fit.
The thing is is that he took Jim Courier's philosophy - train as hard as possible in the gym - basically be a workhorse and push yourself to the limit and it will pay off on the court. Unfortunately I think this approach has probably ended his career - there is only so much the body can take.

I hope he returns though for one last shot.

I'll miss Magnus but he has *nothing* to be ashamed of. Considering that open heart surgery *almost* took him out of the game in his early 20's and then he rebounds all the way to #2 is incredible.
