Re: Alicia to retire soon?

golfers elbow... thats bad... hurts like hell

aww leash dont retire just yet....

id LOVE to see her drop down to a few challengers, and build up her confidence... but if shes really badly injured, maybe it is time for her to retire - or have a break at least?

Re: Alicia to retire soon?

Most disappointing to see she's told her coach 'don't bother coming to Europe'...

Love to see this for the next six months:
She plays through to Olympics/US Open
Has a month or so off - serious rehab...
Some intensive work with good coach/trainers - maybe plays some of Aussie ITF season
Plays in wildcard tourney..
Wildcards if nec through Aussie season...
Ranking well back inside top 100...

please God...

Re: Alicia to retire soon?

It wouldn't surprise me, and realistically it is a viable option. It must be so disheartening for her to be going through more injuries...

We will support which ever decision you make Leesh

Re: Alicia to retire soon?

NO! i wont let her. Sorry Alicia i love u too much. Dont give up, Australia's behind u! Play Wimbledon and assuming u dont get a WC to Beijing, take a month off then play a few months of US Challengers. Take it slow.

Re: Alicia to retire soon?

I agree with Daniel, nothing new there............ I would be very upset to see Alicia finish off her career at this point. Take some time off get that elbow rested and come back strong for the end of the season. That was where she started to show form last year.

Re: Alicia to retire soon?

I'm sure whatever decision Alicia makes, it'll be the right one.

But I still hope she'll play for at least one more year.
