Goodbye, sweetheart

You were the only reason I ever took an interest in women's tennis.
Graceful, lithe, charming...and the most beautiful woman on the courts.
Whatever your new life brings, may it be all you wish for.
Go with Christ, my dear, and may His spirit give you that peace which passes all understanding.
I love you.

Re: Goodbye, sweetheart

Mary will always be a legend, and I think she was the first tennis player whom I heard the name of, when I was like 6. I had great times following her from 2003-2006.

Re: Goodbye, sweetheart

Well what is there to say? Mary gave us alot of thrilling memories....but I must say it doesn't come as a surprise though of course it's depressing. Hope is the last thing that leaves.

I have not read the article but it's wierd cuz just a couple of weeks ago Mary said that she wasn't ready yet for a retirement.

Re: Goodbye, sweetheart

I must say deep down I never really saw her coming back to the tour but it is still devastating. She was the person that brought me into tennis and was my original huge favourite. Im so sad the I will never get to see a new Mary match. Goodbye Queen Mary. What a fantastic career she had.

Re: Goodbye, sweetheart

So, she's not really retiring!?! I thought it was strange I couldn't find any press on it!!! Thank goodness 'cause she is 34, she can still comeback if she wants!!! And she can't end on what happened at Linz!!! Even if she plays one more match I will be stoked!!! Go Mary! You can do anything!
