Greta Arn has Retired!

I do not know if there is a thread, but I always liked her game and her crazy fashion as I saw at Eastbourne one year. She won two WTA events



Estoril 2007 d. Azarenka



Auckland 2011 d. Wickmayer

She also won 4 ITFs




I just remember her with her big puffy jacket.
Hope you enjoy this and like I said sorry if its already been posted.

TT 2010: Won 100k Bronx DW/Matthias, 50k Athens DW/Håkon
TT 2011: Won WTA Strasbourg, WTA Quebec DW/Phil=).
TT 2012: Won WTA P5 Cincinnati,WTA Auckland,Birmingham,Hertogenbosch,Luxembourg,50k Bronx,25k Rockhampton DW/Phil=)

Re: Greta Arn has Retired!

She had a good game. Enjoy your post-tennis life Greta.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Greta Arn has Retired!

I remember that Estoril final well. Back when everybody thought Azarenka was a huge basher, and when she was a major league choker. Choked away 2 MPs in that Estoril final, IIRC.

Grassonkova.

Re: Greta Arn has Retired!

So once again here:

Greta, ich wünsche Dir ein tolles Leben nach dem Tennis und dass alle Deine Wünsche und Träume sich erfüllen.

Und danke für die dreistündigen Matches zu nachtschlafender Zeit, die ich vor dem Liveticker oder Livestream erlitten habe, für die geilen Siege gegen ehemalige und künftige Weltranglistenerste und die grotesken Niederlagen gegen Spielerinnen, von denen nie jemand vorher oder nachher gehört hat. I just loved every sec of it.

Hau rein!

Eugenie Bouchard - Naomi Osaka

and a reminiscence to the past:

Thanks.

But honestly, I got used to the thought after not seeing her again after Wimbledon qualies 2013.... could only have 2 reasons: either her having another thrombosis with a time eating recovery (and would you honestly try to come back at age 35...) or her "only" having retired. Both options end in her not being around anymore.

I'm just happy that she could have that match with Serena where she shit her pants cos of awe and feel sorry for her, that she was so injury plagued. But that's life.... they can't all be #1 after all.
