the title of your thread surely answers you question!

Wimbledon champion, Australian open runner up, French open runner up, US Open semi finalist, World no 2, Fed Cup darling, Italian Open queen, Berlin doyenne, Hilton Head heroine, Philadelphia Princess,...the beautiful, incomparable CONCHITA - A 1988 vintage - sweet, fruity and just gets better with age!

P.S - If Conchi ain't in the draw - go Monica!

I'm not sure. It'll be great to see her on court, but I really admired the fact that she went out while on top of the sport and so it'll be odd to see her & Andre lose (as they will) fairly early in the competition. It's out of character for Steffi, I think, to be doing this and so it makes me a little uncomfortable.

The point being that it's unlike Steffi to play "just for fun" - she's not that kind of player. She loved tennis, but loved to play _well_ and competitively. My guess is that if she's decided to play she's definitely training hard - so she'll play well but Andre's never been that great a doubles player and will probably care much less about winning so if anything he'll be the weak link. Steffi didn't play much doubles later in her career but she has a pretty good record.

Unfortunately Steffi will NOT play in Paris. She refused to play an official match again. I´d be veeeeery excited of course if she´d play! I´d even go to Paris to watch her, no matter what!

How do you know Steffi's not playing?


Steffi also won doubles at Wimbledon with Gaby Sabatini

If she does I will be very happy, it will not tarnish anything nor add anuthing, I mean it's just a mixed double, it's like an exhebition!.
To see Steffi on court is a always a joy!

This is such bs! I admire steffi because she did what she wanted to do. She wanted to retire and she did. If she wanted to keep playing even though she might not have been a "threat" to win everything I still would have respected her. I swear some fans act like they own the players and their achievements. Its the same thing with MJ coming back to basketball and the segment crying that "he'll ruin his legacy..." which is really saying "he'll ruin our memories of those great moments..." which is just selfish crap. The atheletes made those moments not the fans. Its their career, not the fans and they'll decide when to stop or keep going or whatever.

also you do a complete 180 about steffi and andre playing doubles. Do you really think steffi and andre have a chance to win this title? Do you think they are threat? Yes she is training hard but please she needs a wild card just to play! If she was as seriously competiive as you would have her she would be playing in warm up tournaments to prepare.

This whole comeback is just for fun so i guess steffi is that kind of player.
