I think I can say for sure that Tina Pisnik and Maja Matevžič aren`t planning to retire just yet. But they are injured so when they will return is under question... :shrug:

no therefiore she isnt in the first list, just asking if she plans a full single schedule for next season or going to play more doubles

Sweep

That is a long list :eek:

However there are plenty of young 'uns coming through who have the potential to do just as well. So it's not all doom and gloom.

Tzipi will probably stay another year and make her farewell from the tour at the Anda Open in Israel in October.

I'm so sick of seeing Capriati's name on these lists. How many times does it have to be reported that she's training down in Florida as we speak for a January return.

Considering Chanda was entered in a tournament recently (despite pulling out), I don't see why you'd add her to the list.

And pretty much all of the players on your second will be back next year. A few of them have had great seasons in fact, like Kloesel.

Out of those, who has officially retired?

I know about Maleeva, Farina, Zuluaga and Schett (didn't she retire last year?)

SloKid

Schett played in the OZ Open this year, so that is why she is on that list...I guess.

Jenny,please don´t retire :sad:

many players on that list (Tatarkova, Carlsson, Bielik, Kandarr, Pizzichini, Krasnoroutska, Dragomir, etc) have already been effectively retired since a year or even longer ago. So it's a bit of an exaggeration to make the list so big.

Myriam Casanova is semi retired. Maybe she'll play again in some years. After all, ''she's only'' 20. ;)

Is she finally retiring this year?

Chanda Rubin isn't retiring yet. She has said on TV that she wants to come back next year.

And yes, Maureen is finally retiring.

Nina Dübbers officially retired


Tennisspielerin Nina Dübbers wird die Universität Mannheim bei der Universiade im August im türkischen Izmir vertreten. Die 25-jährige Leimenerin qualifizierte sich bei den deutschen Hochschulmeisterschaften in Konstanz mit ihrem Finaleinzug für die Olympischen Spiele der Studenten und freute sich: „Es war schon immer mein Ziel, einmal bei einer Universiade dabei zu sein.“
Zu Beginn des Sommersemesters hatte Nina Dübbers nach einigen Jahren als Profi ihr BWL-Studium an der Mannheimer Uni begonnen. Ihre internationale Karriere (höchster Weltranglistenplatz: 160) hat die 1,82 Meter große Rechtshänderin damit beendet, in der deutschen Rangliste wird sie derzeit auf Platz 29 geführt. Die Vorbereitung auf Izmir will die Bundesligaspielerin beim BASF-TC Ludwigshafen konsequent angehen. „Glücklicherweise kann ich das mit dem Studium gut vereinbaren“, sagt sie erleichtert, aber: „Wie stark das Feld der Gegnerinnen sein wird, kann ich derzeit nicht einschätzen.“

she started to study economics
Good luck, Nina :hug:

she was kinda talented, but didnt make much out of that
