Torres Sisters Announcing Immediate Retirement

San Juan, Puerto Rico -- Much to the shock and awe of the Puerto Rican Olympic Committee and Tennis Federation, both Natalia and Izabela Torres announced their immediate retirement from the FWTT and FWTTJ tours respectively. Recent family hardships and the strain of the tour have led to injuries that cannot be healed except by leaving the courts. Izabela will move permanently to New York City where she was admitted into The Juilliard School. Meanwhile, Natalia will go into the Masters in Business Administration at the Carnegie Mellon University of Pittsburgh. The sisters have offered their tennis federation their skills and time, when possible, to help up and coming Puerto Rico star Elena Puig.

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

I wanted a clean start to do a better job a tracking their careers and to write articles and whatnot. So no my player is Elena Puig in the juniors, later on I might create a second player...but for now no worries I'm still playing.

Re: Torres Sisters Announcing Immediate Retirement

Since you already had a player in the pros, she can go straight to pros unless you prefer her to stay in juniors for a bit.

And yes, Susan Day is right. Israel has an opening.

Would it be ok to create an 18yo to start directly in the Pro's then? I'd like to keep Elena in the juniors for now.

Of course you can start two players. A senior and a junior player.

Timi B / Belinda B / Cucumber / Jil T
ALG / Petko / Angie / Robson
/ TayTo

Masarova / Viki G / Legend / Patty
