That's a shame :( it looked like she was going to break the top 100 after that win over Kvitova at the French. I think that loss to Martic at the AO in 2011 was the icing on the cake, she completely imploded and never really seemed to recover from it. Good luck in whatever she decides to do. She did some commentating at this years Australian Open and was pretty good at it so I'm sure we will continue to see/hear from her :)

Sophie :hug: I guess she just got tired of the grind of the tour without having yet made a big breakthrough at age 25 :sad: It's a shame as she had allot of talent. All the best to Sophie in her post tennis life :kiss:

This is a tragic loss for women's tennis at a time when the game desperately needs real stars.

Beautiful, radiant, and endowed with a huge, fulsome chest :fiery:, Sophie captured the love and devotion of fans around the world. She had tremendous cross-over appeal, as her frequent (and hilarious!) appearances on late-night TV talk shows revealed. WTA executives long planned massive ad campaigns around her arrival in the Top 100, which never materialized.

Sweet in spirit and kind to the homeless - she was often spotted cooking and cleaning at homeless shelters during her off-days at ITFs, and she used those abundant breast to feed several needy children - she's a likely candidate to win a Nobel Peace Prize before she's 40.

But it is her immense tennis talent that makes this loss so shocking. She undoubtedly had one of the best backhands the women's game has ever seen: penetrating, low, and full of wicked spin. Some believe it was the best backhand a woman has ever displayed. So fleet of foot was she that she looked like a deer at the net. And her serve left more than a few ITF girls sobbing in tears: I witnessed this personally.

Alas, Sophie was too simply good for the WTA world of grifters, cheaters, grunters, liars, and schemers. Her saintly nature recoiled in the face of such greed and evil. She spat this tour out the way an angel waves away Satan. She is on to far bigger and better things.

Good night, sweet Sophie. We will miss your generosity, your light, your love, your bosom, and the sweet smell of your sweat. You graced the Tour with your prowess and steely sthelticism. You have re-written the history books. And now you are off to vest the rest of the world with your godly gifts.
