Well, she's stated time and time again that she does not want to have surgery. And who can blame her? I'd be a little apprehensive of being 'cut' again.
She's said time and time again that she will play as long as she enjoys it. If she's not in pain - she's won't go away.
She has built a life for herself outside of tennis. She's got varied interests, smart money management, and clear goals on her post-tennis life.
She's also said that her ultimate goal is the 04 Athens Olympics. So, if her foot is ok, expect to see her there.
She has really nothing to defend the first 1/2 of 2004 so she can really boom her ranking up and make the Top 4 USA and get appointed to the team. I do not, however, see her playing after that.
I think that could be her swansong. That's the event she wants most, she has said.
