I just picked up a copy of the "OH LA!" French magazine, it's the French Canadian Issue. There is the same article I believe as was in the HELLO! Issue you are speaking of. If I knew a word of French, I'd post the transcript... However I don't know it. I just bought it because it's the only thing I've found to have a memory of Martina's retirement.

Beautiful pictures.

Hi everyone!!

Here's the article and pics from Hello! magazine - it's not a long article and I'm sure you've heard most of it already, but I thought you'd still like to read it!


Tennis star Martina Hingis
has no regrets as she quits the sport at only 22 for a complete change of career

Twenty-two seems an unusually early age to retire, but Martina Hingis has always been on the precocious side. Having won all of her five Grand Slam singles titles while still a teenager, the tennis star has now swapped tournaments for tests and become the youngest in her class at a Zurich college where she's studying English with a view to a career in marketing.

The 22-year-old 'Swiss Miss' - who has been plagued by foot and ankle injuries - stunned the sports world earlier this month when she announced her retirement from the game she'd been playing professionally since the age of 12. But far from lamenting the end of her career, Martina is throwing herself into her new life with all the energy she once showed on the tennis courts.

"I can no longer do what it takes to be at the top. I was at the top for long enough to know exactly what that entails and I'm no longer up to it," she explained to sports paper L'Equipe at her home in Schindellegi, Switzerland. "When you've been number one for four years you're not going to be happy with anything less...but I don't want you to feel sorry for me. I've got a great life, I'm happy even without competing."

With her rackets packed away - as well as a tidy sum in the bank - Martina is busy getting to grips with English grammar. "Right now my priority in life is no longer tennis, it's my studies. I go to college in Zurich four times a week. It's very hard.
"It may be different to what I was doing before," she adds, "but it's what makes me happy these days. Tennis has been an important part of my life, but another life is beginning."

And it's a new life that she's adament will not include a return to professional sport, and one which poses as many challenges as her previous career.
"I have so much on at the moment. There's no longer any point in looking behind because that's so far away at the moment. You have to be ready for the unexpected, for what is to follow. I am living with a different kind of stress now - not making mistakes in class, for example!"

Thanks for posting it.

So, is this an opening: "…because that's so far away at the moment"?

I want to see that as one.
