Have a wonderful post tennis life Flavia

All the best with her upcoming nuptials with The Fog. Hopefully we'll have little Flavia's running around within the next year or two

Re: Tribute to flavia

In tears. Couldn't watch it because of my job, despite being one of her biggest fans, but I feel bad for this. Maybe it is better this way though. I would have cried even harder.


And what a good decision it was to come back from the terrible wrist injury in 2012 at 30+:

1 GS title
Indian Wells title

Hats off!



Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

Re: Tribute to flavia

Thanks for everything, Flavia

Just some statistical achievements...
11 singles titles (inc. US Open), 17 doubles titles (inc. Australian Open and YEC w/ Dulko)
Career high ranking of #6 in singles, #1 in doubles
Ends her career with many reasonable H2Hs against some of the most recent GS champions/Top 10 players: 3-3 against Sharapova, 4-4 against Venus, 8-0 against Stosur, 4-3 against Kvitova, 2-2 against Azarenka, 4-3 against Halep, etc..

Much to be proud of As a fan, I will miss her and wish she would play at least until the Olympics, but I'm glad she is at peace with her decision

A genuine sweetie, the real deal. Will miss her down-to-earth, sunny disposition. Best wishes in the next phase of your life, Flavonoid.

Good luck in the future, Flavia. She seems such a nice person and her game was a joy to watch.
