what do players do when they retire?

I am interested in knowing what the pros do when they hang up their rackets - in particular whether there are any weird and wonderful jobs/hobbies htey follow?!
Any help would be much appreciated. Thank-you!

I only can speak for Miriam: she started a business, providing tennis clinics for clubs and companies and organizes tennis vacations

I don't know, but I think they continue to play tennis as they want, just for fun.. tennis will always be part of their life I think

If people gave this question some thought a little more often, they wouldn't always be so eager to push players into retirement.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

well, graf is the mother of a baby, huber is still involved in German sports, Gabby has her own perfume line , Martina is still playing tennis, Mary Joe is a commentator, so it varies from anyone to everyone

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

Usually, well, many of them start working with junior, developing programs for the future of their countries' tennis.

Tennis camps, and some of them have their own academies (i.e Evert)

All the best to Anastasia Myskina, Elena Bovina and Svetlana Kuznetsova!
Watch out: Myriam Casanova, Maria Kirilenko and Maria Sharapova!

some change to the senior tour

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
