View Full Version : I hate to ask but now the season's over when will Monica announce her retirement?

Do you think she'll have a large press conference?
Would she have already retired if she were going to and is simply waiting to play next season becasue she is good to go again? ( I hope so)

Will she retire quietly much like she's been the last few years?

Let's discuss

Yes Monica will retire.
The words out of Seles' mouth were, if you didn't see her on court playing by the end of summer, she was going to retire.

this is me

Hardly…… Not whilst she’s still collecting her sick pay. Think of all the contracts and endorsements she still gets…if she retires she has not fulfilled her contractual obligations....so she's waiting until the doctors won't give her any more sicknotes...which will be never... then she'll announce retirement

i hope she retires during the australian open and that they give her a fitting ceremony. she has prolonged her retirement for so long.

I think that a lot of players prolong the retirement announcement to avoid the unnecessary fanfare.

she doesn't even appear on Yonex ads anymore. whether she really bothers about those endorsements, we can't be sure.

think she just wants to leave quietly..

and yes I would love to see her ending her career at the US Open or Aust Open with a ceremony she much deserves.

I think Lindsay might announce her retirement before Monica does how long has been since she last played a match?

Monica last played Roland Garros 2003 I think it was

She will announce her retirement after all her endorsement contracts end.

She will announce her retirement after all her endorsement contracts end.

That sounds about right....but I hope she can give it another go.

I hate to admit that we'll never see Monica on court again:sad: but I do wish she would officially retire so the countdown to her induction into the Hall Of Fame can begin

She should at least hold a press conference. I think RG would be a great place for her retirement ceremony, it was where she made her first slam semi, won her first Slam and won what many consider to be the greatest match of all time. And Steffi should present it.
