i guess I read an article last month, mentioned that she is going to retire after playying 2005 Aussie Open...
But I find the latest article "2004 seson: A Look Back" on the WTA site..the last sentence of the article is:
Amanda Coetzer, Barbara Schett and Iva Majoli announced their retirements from professional tennis.

Is that true? Since Schett has not participated in the Fed Cup semi-final...I have started to guess if she as retired:confused:

Barbara is going to play the Australian Open and then officially retire.

She wants to remain in tennis as a tournament director.
