Could it be that Mary will aready retire at the end of this season?
Mary has had a wonderful season.
She reached the quarters in Indian Wells, the final of roland garros the quarters of Wimbledon and the final of NY; and the Fed Cup final togehter with her team colleagues. She leaves out nearly the complete indoor season of this year.
Maybe she would set a highlight with the YEC and then say goodbye.
Being the Number 1 is probably not an aim of hers, otherwise she would have had another sheduling.
Or will she just keep her ressources for next year.
What do you think?
