Eric, Martina must request her name be taken off the rankings, otherwise it will stay until she has fewer than three tournaments.
if she returns a year or two down the road, i highly doubt she'll be granted an injury protected ranking, since i don't think her absence qualifies as injury related. as far as i'm concerned (and the WTA too, i think) martina has retired. if she seeks to return later on, she will do it from scratch ala jennifer capriati.
