I posted a news item in her thread in Team USA -- her Mom has brain cancer and Abi is retiring after the US Open to be with her. :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:

We'll miss you, Abi! :hearts: :hug:

****EDITED TO CHANGE TITLE ... So glad to see that article was wrong!!!!****

But I still hope her Mom can get well. It has to be so tough on Abi. :sad: :hug:

I could tell that something wasn't right when I saw her in Vancouver. She seemed so out of it.

Now I know why. :sad: :sad:

How sad :sad:

She'll be missed. She's a popular player on the tour, particularly with some of the Aussie girls. All the best to Abi, and I wish her mother all the best.

I made a comment in the Cetkovska-Spears result thread refering to how out of form Spears was and now it is easy and very understandable to see why. It is a very caring decision she is taking but under the circumstances it would be very hard to play well anyway so it is definately the right thing to do, for the time being anyway.

I wish both Abigail and her mom the best at what is obviously a sad and difficult time. :sad:

It's really bad for her, feel sorry for her mon.
But i doubt she is that popular, the one time i saw her, last year in the Bronx, she acted really uncool and a whiner

It was really really sad to see her go, I'm glad she will keep on playing, and I really wish her mom some good health. As I know Abigail, she probably will be around her mom, trying to make her laugh and being her usual self....

Good luck to her mom and to Abi and all the family.
