Face it. Nicole's not coming back. The question was posed by a reporter to Step' at the Legg Mason tourney and Step said that it's not likely, although he has encouraged Nikki to return, but leaves it up to her to make a decision. Further, Matt Cronin of the Tennis Reporters saw Nicole in the stands and asked her point blank whether she'll return to the Tour. Her response was "no".
Attached is the video of Step's interview. At 4:30 of the video is when he responds to the question regarding his wife. The way it is.
what an insane talent this girl was - ball basher but precise, hitting the lines, the serve. Could've been a hall of famer, such a strange spiral downward she took. From world class to not being able to even hit a forehand.
As much as I loved Vaidisova, she will go down as Kournikova 2.0 . She got her money, she got enough fame, and now she is content. Her own motivation is her biggest weakness. Too bad because she had a Slam winning game. That forehand and ROS were just Players like her and Golovin were supposed to take over from todays top ladies, imo and partially explains why we seemingly have a lack of young talent. We had them, they just either got chronically injured or gave in mentally/emotionally .
