i don't think she has retired. maybe she's taking an extended break from tennis.

At 30?

Good luck when she tries to comeback :tape: :tape:

She'll be well outside the Top 200 at the beginning of next year when she will turn 31 :help:

At Fed Cup she tried to play Flipkens in Singles but had to withdraw from injury. I don't believe I have seen her in a draw since then, but I am probably wrong.

yeah I don't think she has played since that fed cup tie against Belgium during the summer. Mashona provided the most memorable match of this year for me :worship: - her amazing french open 1st round encounter with Maria Sharapova, she hit the most amazing winners.Nerves got the better of her at the end though. I remember that match like it
was yesterday :sad:

it would be a shame if she retires now, she's had more success in the latter years of her career

she should keep going imo

Is there no information from WTA, like withdrawal reasons? I think she wil lcome back and probably with an injury ranking. :)

Hey ! I spoke to Jenny Hopkins at the US OPEN and she mentioned to me she's still playing. She's just resting her injury. She'll be back net year for sure!

Yes i remember reading that she withdrew from summer tournaments due to a foot injury. I'm guessing that's what kept her out the rest of the season also. Hopefully she comes back strong next year!

I just noticed she was gone the other day while I was checking out the rankings and saw her way below top 150. Then I remembered I hadn't seen her in any recent draws.

Man, she's one of the most stunning tennis player I've laid my eyes on :drool: Eye candy

She has had knee surgery and hopes to return to the tour at the start of 07. :)

I'm pretty sure she played Amelia Island and was out early, maybe 1R loss. Long time ago, though.

No you are right, Fed Cup was her last match this year. (I was mixing Fed Cup with Hopman Cup.)

Knee surgery! :eek: Mashona's brother Malivai had knee surgery and never was able to make it back. :sad: I hope her recovery goes a lot better than his did!

btw, I noticed last week that Mashiska's still out there, too. Wonder how old he is now?
