View Full Version : The US Open is the last tournament for Paola Suarez.

That is right. After she lost in her first match in the Qualy, Paola Suarez will play her doubles match/matches with the Italian Roberta Vinci and after that she will be officially retired.

All what I can say: :fiery: :bigcry: :sad: :mad:

Aug 23rd, 2007, 04:51 PM
I guess it was time... :sad: :hug:
It's too bad she had to lose in QR1 and not get, say, a Wildcard, draw a top seed and play her last match on Center Court.
I wonder if she will play mixed?

Aug 23rd, 2007, 04:52 PM
I will miss her for sure. Good luck in the life after the tennis Paola.

I remember meeting her in New Have...she stopped practicing with Vivi to take a pic...I felt bad lying to her that I was happy when she beat Serena in AI that year...:sad:

Aug 23rd, 2007, 05:08 PM
She had such a good 2004 but injuries took a toll on her singles career.

doubles on the other hand :worship:

Aug 23rd, 2007, 05:10 PM
Paola! :hug:

She was a great player!

Aug 23rd, 2007, 05:14 PM
Such a good career. #1 in doubles; I think #9 career high in singles. She didnt win anything huge in singles, but I think she's HOF bound.

Aug 23rd, 2007, 05:15 PM
i would have liked to see her playing her last match with Vivi :sad: one of the great dubs teams :worship:

Aug 23rd, 2007, 05:18 PM
i liked her a lot

Aug 23rd, 2007, 05:36 PM

OMG :sad:

Aug 23rd, 2007, 06:07 PM
I saw Paola at Wimbledon this year play doubles. I also remember seeing her in Paris in 2004 when she got to the semis.

I wish her the best in her retirement.

Aug 23rd, 2007, 06:09 PM
I'm surprised she's playing with Vinci.

Aug 23rd, 2007, 06:26 PM
Goodbye Paola.

Have a nice life after tennis. :) :) :) :) :) :)

Aug 23rd, 2007, 06:33 PM
I'm surprised she's playing with Vinci.
Paola really wanted to play with VRP in her last year but VRP dumped her for that damn Olympics goal :rolleyes:

Aug 23rd, 2007, 06:43 PM
She has had a tremendous career. I hope she can pick up some wins in the doubles.

Aug 23rd, 2007, 06:50 PM
Thats a big loss for wta... sad to hear it...:awww: wish u all the best in your life Paola :)

Aug 23rd, 2007, 06:54 PM
you'll be missed, Paola. The great images of Virginia and her giggling whether they were winning or losing were so great :)

have a nice life :wavey:

Aug 23rd, 2007, 07:01 PM
All the best!!! She seemed to be always happy and smiling on the court! Sad way t end though...hopefully she ll win a couple of rounds with vinci

Aug 23rd, 2007, 07:25 PM
Gosh, I really hate to see players of her format go. What a personality, what a champ, what a smile.

Aug 23rd, 2007, 07:30 PM
She has a nice entry in Wikipedia


Aug 23rd, 2007, 07:37 PM
Paola will be missed. She probably was closer to winning RG 2004 than some here might think. I definitely will remember her run there (and her win over Maggie at Wimbledon 2003 :fiery: :p ).

Aug 23rd, 2007, 07:44 PM
Paola is a fine champ and a national hero of Argentina. Her faithful and natural personality will never been forgotten - so sad that her last season was not covered with the success she deserved. Sometimes I have to hold back tears when I recall the fact this is her last tournament. You are a great one, Paola!.

Aug 23rd, 2007, 07:45 PM
Paola:sad: Good luck in your new life...always such a sweetheart.

Aug 23rd, 2007, 07:55 PM
Paola!! Great career, she is a clear example of what you can achieve working hard... she was never super talented but she made a lot of things out of determination

Aug 23rd, 2007, 08:01 PM
good luck paola

Aug 23rd, 2007, 08:05 PM
Paola you will be missed!

Aug 23rd, 2007, 08:08 PM
Always made sure I checked out the schedules to watch Pao/Vivi at Wimbledon.

Popular with the crowds who were always rooting for them.

Good luck Pao - sure going to miss that smile. :hearts:

Aug 23rd, 2007, 10:43 PM
I won't forget that smile!! How she enjoyed playing tennis!! How she enjoyed playing with Virginia!! And of course that the crowds were full :sad: Probably she wasn't so succesful in singles but I have to recognise that she was a FANTASTIC doubles player. Millons of titles, a lot of Grand Slams, just GREAT! :bigcry: I WON'T FORGET YOU! AND I KNOW THAT NOBODY WILL.

:worship: Paola Suarez :worship:

It was a painful farewell for her as Paola has not been very successful this past year. I wish her the very best in her retirement from tennis since she has a full life ahead of her in the "real" world. I had the opportunity to personally meet Pao and Vivi at the 2006 JP Morgan Chase Open in the Los Angeles area after winning their semi-final match, which they went on to win in doubles. They were introduced to us in the Home Depot Suite after the match and we took photos and they autographed various items for us. Then I saw them at Indian Wells last March and took photos of them, and they autographed the photo that was taken with them from the JP Morgan Tournament.

I wished them then well the rest of the year and that they would be successful at Wimbledon to finally win the women's doubles. They thanked me. Little did I know that Indian Wells was the last Tier 1 tournament they would compete together as a team, making Wimbledon the grand slam doubles titles that eluded them. Oh well.

I too will miss their smiles, especially Vivi giving a kiss on Paola cheek after a match. I got a photo of that kiss at Indian Wells.
