...after seeing the accomplishments of her older compatriots Justine (Doha), Kim Gevaert (European champ 60m at 28) and Tia hellebaut (European champ High jump at 28)

Incredible she wants to retire at such a young age.:o

It's her decision, respect it, ffs ! She hasn't to be ashamed : she has other plans in her life than being a top sportwoman... Building a family is infinitely much more important than winning some silverwares... I'm fed up of people like you who are short minded.

She probably will get inspired, but if she wants to retire, just respect it. Imagine you having to go through painful surgeries and painful times to recover. No one should have that on them.

You don't act or take decisions because your neighbours/compatriots would have acted differently, that' would be silly;)

I think this thread is a tad harsh :lol:

Maybe it's a pity Kim won't be inspired by this weekend's Belgian accomplishments to change her mind about her tennis career, but methinks that would be flogging a very dead horse.

Maybe it would have been better for her fans (and even her critics) if Kim had put them out of their "misery" by retiring straight after Antwerp. ;)

you know, i think there are still kim fans out there who wish to see her oncourt for the rest of the year despite wtaworld's opinion that she is sucking/unmotivated/useless

Yasmine
Mar 5th, 2007, 10:07 AM
Are you implying that people with doubts are not fans anymore? :rolleyes:


I've already said that but imagine some of us are pissed off she's not shining as well as she has the ability to, but we still hang in there and will follow everyone of her matches till the last one. Believe me that's much harder to be a fan with doubts than a fan who worships everything in their fave, that's damn easy to stay a fan when you see all positive and good...

That's great, I respect their opinions and have not attacked them, methinks. :D

I was simply stating my own view and maybe that of some other observers who feel that Kim's decision to embark upon possibly the longest official retirement tour in tennis history is a tad sad, when the primary motivation for it does not appear to be winning.

But as I have said countless times before, I hope that Kim will prove me horribly wrong by winning lots of titles and another GS before she finally goes ;)

i'm not saying a fan should be someone who embraces their fave 100%. ive never taken this stand and i'm not here to argue this debate again

i'm just saying i believe there are still kim fans who hope to see her play the year out instead of retiring after antwerp.

Fiona didn't mean she doesn't want to see her play anymore. But playing 6 tourneys on her farewell tour, no I don't see the consistency there, sorry. I don't think for a second that she'll win Wimbledon, and skipping RG is... well I better not tell my opinion on this.

i dont see her winning wimbledon, or even the USO actually. i never said playing 6 tourneys is a lot. i'm just saying fans (no matter full fans or half fans or quarter fans) would be willing to see her oncourt past antwerp, no matter the results. that was my only point in the very first place. and no, i was not trying to attack fiona or get into the CCL debate of whether she is a full fan or not :shrug:

And yes Janice all of us want to see her play whatever she decides to enter for the rest of the season. But it hurts to have the impression she doesn't alway give it her best shot... And that's not only an opinion of fans like you or me or Fifi or the rest of CCL but people who like Kim in general and watch her play now and again will want to see her show some good tennis for the rest of the season. And I don't think that can be achieved with so few tournaments;)

About what?!?
Others being older than her
and playing and winning?

Why can't people understand that Kim is choosing what is best
FOR HER. Not what YOU THINK is best for her.

Regardless of what she does or doesn't, may or may not ever feel,
she did what was right for her at the time being. People need to
get a grip, get off her back, and deal with it!

I'm sure all of us would love to see her spend many more years on the circuit because Kim is such a class act and because we are all first and foremost tennis fans. Kim has decided that this is the right time and good for her. She has given us all great memories in some fantastic matches and I wish her the best for the rest of the year.

Enjoy her while she's still competing and don't be so negative about her decision!

Whatever makes Kim happy she should do and if that means getting married, being a housewife and a mother .... then good luck to her and I hope she's very happy. With a talent like hers she can always come back to it.

and suddenly she should play all year long every week?

Women tend to push their spouses to success rather than to enhance themselves to their best potential. Behind every successful man there is a "surprised" woman.;) :(

Kim did surprise us by calling her retirement so young on top of her game. It is pretty disgusting to me why she cannot get married and keep on playing tennis as well, in view her boyfriend is far from a superstar in basketball? He should fully support Kim, as Li Na's husband does to her.:rolleyes: ;)
