Gagliardi is? :eek:
Unconfirmed rumor, but she's 31 and is having a hard time making MD's now. She used 2B proud of being "one of the hundred best in the world", but DBE is now #128, averaging little more than 10 points per event she enters. (28 for 287.5) She could change her mind, but I doubt that the game is much fun for her anymore.

Manu :sad:

I really hope she changes her mind, because she's been quite unlucky with her draws lately. If she qualifies for the Ozopen next year and gets a nice place in the main draw, then she might get back to the Top 100.

Pls Manu, don't retire !!! ;) :)

I don't think many significant players will retire this year. Most of them will still try to play the Olympics and after that they might call it a day... like Ai, Vivi, LenaL, Nicole Pratt, Jill and Meilen (not that they have a chance of playing in Beijing tho :sad: ).. or even Nathalie. :bigcry: :(

Le Placid Parisian isn't even the leading French "PP" now. (Pauline Passed her in the singles rankings last week). And you may recall re. the Olympics that Anca Barna was ranked in the high 50's when she (and Marlene Waingartner) were passed ova in '04, so its not that EZ to make it. With almost 200 countries in the IOC, imagine if they were all represented by even 1 player, let alone 2. I still like the way IOC head Jacques Rogge of BEL publicly dissed Kim for not going last time, :lol: and a Justine who hadn't played in a couple of months walked off with the Gold. :D

As said above, its unconfirmed. And even if DBE told me herself, she could change her mind. This isn't like team sports, where you're on the roster or you're not. (And even those guys unretire sometimes). They don't even delete someone from the rankings in tennis or golf, a player just fades away. BTW, I think Mrs. Leach from Newport Beach "retired" when she got pregnant, and Marti did after the '02 season. ;)

Don't forget there are doubles tournament in the Olympics as well.

And pay attention on what I wrote... I said those players might try to play the Olympics... nobody knows what will happen in the rankings next year. ;) :)

Pratt was supposed to retire end of this season. But since she was fined during her Australian open match, she wanted to play more AO without fined. I'm not sure what she's planning to do after AO.
