Which one would you love to see back on the tour?. They would still have to be young enough to cope with the game as it is now.
Two examples.. Anna Kournikova and Martina Hingis. Guess you can add the likes of Monica Seles and Barbara Schett to the list as well...

Jul 9th, 2005, 09:50 PM
Definitely Anna and Martina

Jul 9th, 2005, 09:53 PM
Hingis and Seles

Jul 9th, 2005, 09:56 PM

Jul 9th, 2005, 10:06 PM
Definitely Martina

Same here: Hingis, Seles and Kournikova. @thread starter: I guess that's why they aren't playing, because their bodies can't hold up when playing? (Martina and Monica: feet, Anna: back)

Anna Kournikova has not retired. This is a journal entry from her website posted 25th May, 2005.

Lots of Projects
Hi guys -

I know it's been a little while since I've written, but I wanted to fill you in on all the cool projects I've been doing! I had the amazing chance to co-host ABC's major talk show The View, since one of the show's hosts was out on maternity leave. I was able to interview my friend Brittany Murphy, sing with the American Idol Judges, interview Jessica Lange and even went to her Broadway play. I had an awesome time on The View and the hosts were really a lot of fun.

This month, I had my first fitness column appear in Elle magazine. You guys should check it out. It may seem from the article that I may have retired from professional tennis, but I have definitely NOT officially retired. I'm still working on getting healthy and will hopefully return to the courts sometime soon.

On Saturday, May 21st, I played a tennis Exhibition at home in South Florida. I played a singles match against former Wimbledon champion, Jana Novotna. Jana has always been difficult to play and this matched proved to be no different. We had a lot of long points and the crowd really seemed to enjoy the match. After we played, I watched Jim Courier and John McEnroe play their single's match. It was super entertaining and the guys went at it just like old times. At the end of the evening, I played mixed doubles with John against Jana and Jim. We wore microphones so the audience could hear our comments and the crowd definitely got into it! I loved joking around with John and hearing everyone in the audience laugh - that's what makes the exhibitions so much fun. It was great to play at home in front of my fans and friends and I'm looking forward to playing a lot more tennis this summer. I'm going to be playing World Team Tennis again, and I'm playing for a new team this year, the Sacramento Capitals. I'll definitely keep you guys posted!

Jul 10th, 2005, 01:08 AM
Seles retired?

Jul 10th, 2005, 01:09 AM
Seles retired?
It's just assumed that she's retired. Rightfully so, until she can give us some insight as to when she plans to return. It's been so long since she stopped. :sad:

Iroda Tulyaganova (http://www.geocities.com/andrewbroad/tennis/tulya/) has not retired. She's currently playing on the ITF Women's Circuit, having been sidelined from July 2003 to October 2004 with an elbow-injury.

Monica Seles (http://www.geocities.com/andrewbroad/tennis/seles/) has not officially retired, although she hasn't played a match recognised by the WTA since the French Open 2003, due to a stress-fracture in her left foot. I would love to see her come back once again.

Iva Majoli (http://www.geocities.com/andrewbroad/tennis/majoli/) announced her retirement in June 2004 after a long, deep slump caused her to lose her motivation, but is now considering the possibility of a comeback. She'll be 28 on 12th August.

Karina Cíleková-Habšudová (http://www.geocities.com/andrewbroad/tennis/habsu/) announced her retirement in February 2004 after failing to recover from a partially ruptured Achilles tendon sustained at the Australian Open 2002. There's no prospect of a comeback, especially now that she is pregnant.
