"Dear family, friends, and fans, I would like to thank you for all your love and support throughout my tennis career. Unfortunately, some injuries have taken me out of the game. However, I will still be active in the sport by coaching. If anyone is interested any lessons, events, or a traveling coach let me know. Love you all, Ahsha"

That's what she wrote on her wall :sad::sad: .
Sad to see her career is ending like this, she definetly had potential to be a solid Top 100 player. :o
There were glimpses of that last year but unfortunately, there was never some real consistency.
I guess she will be mostly known for her match against Golovin at the US OPEN.
Enjoy your post tennis life Ahsha :wavey:

Rolle has the weapons, but her fitness was always a bit questionable. Shame injuries didn't allow her the opportunity to really test how far she could take her game, but best wishes to her post-professional career :)

Jamea Jackson, Shenay Perry, Angie Haynes, ...now Ahsha...
I really thought Ahsha would pull through. :[
So much talent, things just didn't fall in the right places for these girls.

I'm banking on the new group. I just wasnt feeling the old group. Oudin is on her way down. Goodbye Asha gl in your next life phase.

Good luck. I didn't follow her career real closely, but I always got the impression she was a good competitor and nice person.

Sad that she isn't ending on her own terms, but it is probably for the best. She's been struggling outside the top 250 for years now. I remember reading somewhere that her parents took out of their 401k to help fund her travelling expenses. She was probably only digging a deeper financial hole.

Best of luck to her in future endeavors :)

Sad to see - she had had a good event at $25k Midland, reaching sf beating Luzhanska, but then she lost her last match 6-1 3-1 ret to Federica Grazioso in Midland $100k qualifying, so it looks like that injury was the last straw. But you can't blame her retiring if injuries mean that she can't move out of the ITFs.

:hug: I'd pay to be coached by Ahsha, she was a good tennis player and could have done much more in her career.

Good luck in your post-tennis life, Ahsha, you're an amazing girl :yeah:

Was Jamea the one with the most potential in this group?

That sucks... I remember when she defeated Golovin (:lol::drool:) and made it to the 3rd round at the US Open... she was very talented but I guess tennis takes more than skill. In her case she could have used perseverance to stay fit :shrug:

But anyway, all the best Ahsha, she's a great girl I talked to her once or twice by Facebook and she's very nice.

hey Dawn Marie! Nice to see you! Where you been? :D

yea, r.i.p. Ahsha. I bumped into her at the US Open one time, literally. She was very nice to me, that will be my memory. Weight and injuries got in her way...

Hu? I always thought, Ahsha already retired one or two years ago. :confused:

:yeah:

It's a shame that Ahsha didn't fully live up to her potential but she'll always have her US Open 15 (mini) minutes. :) Kudos to her parents!!

IMO, yeah.

In my opinion both Jamea and Angela Haynes had huge potential to be at least Top 30. ;)

The thing is though Angie never really had a career threatening injury, she retired because she was getting no where. Angie had her chances but never made it; Jamea never had a chance.

But injuries are part of the games....we can do hypotheticals all day long.:lol:

I think she had nagging injuries, but her issue was all mental, especially after her brother died in a motorcycle accident.

Oh, and she had a one-handed backhand :awww:
