She'll probably not provoke the long drawn out boring responses from Martina critics who underneath hate her guts yet think they are tennis pundits who expect everyone to take their words as gospel like I am sure is going to happen in this thread.....

Martina has said she's taking some time off from tennis, but doesn't know for how long.

How do we get from that to her retiring? There's no reason to think that with time, and proper care, she won't finally recover from her injury. There's no word that she's getting married. She's still young. She's always been very competitive.

I assume that financially she can retire. But, indeed, what would she do if she retires?

i think she said she is taking an indefinate break from tennis and that is why people are talking about retirement

I don't think she'll retire. She has too much pride too continue this way though. She knows she has to work on her game. If she leaves now, I think she will ruin her name. I think she will work very hard to get better. Maybe even try a new coach, or a co-coach.

well she likes riding horses right?
so maybe she can buy a lot of horses and play with them
she likes tennis right?
maybe she can start start an academy or something,
she likes boyfriends right?
maybe she can start dating around,
but i think she is gonna do what i have been wanting to
do all my life, travel around the world........

i think if she made an academy it would be very popular especially with the non-power players and those with small body frames

I don't think that she is going to miss tennis much, of course she will but not as badly as many think. She already get used to live without tennis since the end of the last year. She didn't play much at all and it doesn't seem like she is missing :rolleyes:

She could easily slip into Equestrian. The only reason she hadn't before is less time to practice. The money isn't as big as tennis but she won't have to worry about that and can just enjoy herself. Still, playing tennis is a heck of a lot better than having a sore ass week after week.

Seriously, I think she'll be back by the start of next year. Watch for her to return by Open Gaz de France, or possibly sooner.

Marti could do a few things:

1. Open a shoe store
2. Buy a golf course
3. Become some golf pro's caddy
4. Have an affair with Richard Williams :eek:
5. start stalking her stalker when he gets out so that he knows how that shit feels.
6. Open a message board and start posting under the name Joey Wilson :p
7. Design "falsies" for catsuits for girls with little or no tushies :)
8. Do more shower ads
9. Kick Fingon's ass for dumping her
10 Give her mom a damn perm!

I think if she was still tied to a Yonex contract she'd be more careful about mentioning "Wilson"... ;) Surely no more lawsuits!
