Thank you

Is Tati out of the game for good, or does she plan on returning? She has always been a joy to watch.

For sure she is out of the game. She has a permanent back condition called ankylosing spondylitis. It involves inflammation of the spine and there seems to be no cure. And yes i agree she was a joy to watch and had way more personality and game than most of the players at the top right now.
