Clisters maybe stop to play tennis in 3 years

Sorry it's in French, can someone translet??

BRUXELLES (Reuters) - Le calendrier infernal du tennis féminin pourrait contraindre la Belge Kim Clijsters à mettre un terme à sa carrière dans trois ans, affirme son père vendredi.

"Elle va regagner la Belgique pour jouer à Anvers mais elle doit refaire ses bagages pour aller jouer en Amérique. Scottsdale, Indian Wells, ça n'arrête pas", a déclaré Leo Clijsters aux médias belges.

"Dans trois ans, elle pourrait bien arrêter", a-t-il ajouté. Kim, qui aura alors 22 ans, sera financièrement indépendante, a précisé son père.

La numéro quatre mondiale a gagné environ 1,8 million d'euros l'année dernière. Elle a fait ses débuts professionnels en 1997.

Leo, qui est aussi son manager, a indiqué que sa fille était sous pression dans le monde du sport de haut niveau.

"Elle n'a pas besoin de toutes ces attentions", a-t-il conclu.

- VICTORIA BECKHAM


- SARAJEVO - BiH

- Mervana Jugić-Salkić ( 24-5 )

That would make her just a bit older than Venus when she was going to retire (according to her dad), and only a few years younger than Evert when she was originally going to retire.

And don't get me started on all of the players who were not going to be still playing past the age of 30....

Uh oh, her dad is starting to become like Richard Williams who regularly makes false retirement predictions. I will waid and see what Kim has to say about this, because I don't think for one minute that she will retire until she gets a slam.

steffi only played 2 tournaments at 30 so she pretty much kept her word considering she missed together 1,5 year in 97/98

steffi announced retirement any year anyway starting in march 90 (or maybe even before but that's the first time that I know it for sure that she said I can retire any minute)

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
