id LOVE to see her drop down to a few challengers, and build up her confidence... but if shes really badly injured, maybe it is time for her to retire - or have a break at least?

Most disappointing to see she's told her coach 'don't bother coming to Europe'...
Love to see this for the next six months:
She plays through to Olympics/US Open
Has a month or so off - serious rehab...
Some intensive work with good coach/trainers - maybe plays some of Aussie ITF season
Plays in wildcard tourney..
Wildcards if nec through Aussie season...
Ranking well back inside top 100...

It wouldn't surprise me, and realistically it is a viable option. It must be so disheartening for her to be going through more injuries...
We will support which ever decision you make Leesh :hug:

NO! i wont let her. Sorry Alicia i love u too much. Dont give up, Australia's behind u! Play Wimbledon and assuming u dont get a WC to Beijing, take a month off then play a few months of US Challengers. Take it slow.

I agree with Daniel, nothing new there............ I would be very upset to see Alicia finish off her career at this point. Take some time off get that elbow rested and come back strong for the end of the season. That was where she started to show form last year.

I'm sure whatever decision Alicia makes, it'll be the right one.
But I still hope she'll play for at least one more year.

I hope so much that this isn't the end of her career :sad: Perhaps a long break could be a chance...

this is really sad to read indeed :sad:

This is very sad but doesn't surprise me, hope she can keep trying, would be really sad to see her go out like this

I hope its not soon, it sucks all thats happened to her, all her interruptions!! :(
