Aw. Cannot read the article. Can anyone translate the gist of it?

Its a shame. Her best year was probably 2004 where she made three tour finals and won Quebec City

Jul 16th, 2008, 12:31 PM

Although it doesn't surprise me, it's an Olympic year which usually means a number of players will hang up their racquet.

:sad: She had a nice career with 2 WTA titles. Good luck in the future;)

I didn't know she's still playing :o

Aw. Cannot read the article. Can anyone translate the gist of it?

She thanked her family, and all the people who were supporting her during her professional career.
She also said that she might play in a league, either in Slovak league or in other country. She also might become a tennis trainer. She said she does not have a clear way what to do now.

I hope I got this right based on my polish language knowledge ;)
would be better if someone from Slovakia translate it though

always sad to read that someone is retiring :(
good luck Martina :)

:awww: :sad: Very pity, she was on a really good way 2-3 years back :(

All the best for the life after tennis :)

Jul 16th, 2008, 05:01 PM
That's a shame. She had a killer backhand. Good luck in the future :).

Such a shame. She seems such a nice person. Too bad I won't get the chance to see her play in person again.

I wish her all the best in whatever she decides to do now.

Jul 16th, 2008, 07:03 PM
why isn't she Martina Suchova? :confused:

Jul 16th, 2008, 08:04 PM
why isn't she Martina Suchova? :confused:

because not all slovakian surnames end on -ova ....

we have Suchá, Sekelská, Šťasná etc... but with -ova are more of course....

Jul 16th, 2008, 08:05 PM
That is harsh!
I'm so happy I got to see her in Quebec City and Charleston!

Jul 16th, 2008, 09:39 PM

Jul 16th, 2008, 09:43 PM
oh that's sad :( she was still young...
but I remember only one her match - double bagel against Ana in Warsaw ;)

Jul 16th, 2008, 11:07 PM
I used to enjoy watching her play :(

She was struggling at ITFs when she tried to comeback,so probably good choice for her.

Wishing her all the best.

All the best Martina. :hug:

I saw her beat Bartoli in Pattaya last year, but everything went downhill after that. :sad:

Cervanova and Sucha are now both gone. :sad:

Well if you want some good Martina Sucha news, I've got some---she's one of the girls featured in my upcoming Top 50 Hottest Female Tennis Players of the Last 10 Years thread. It's my response to Dav's thread, which I've been working on for the past month. So yeah, look forward to that :)

Jul 17th, 2008, 03:16 AM
Cervanova and Sucha are now both gone.

More good news: I have a Cervanova as an honorable mention! :)

Jul 17th, 2008, 04:42 AM
Not the most successful return last year, so it was kinda expected. :sad: :crying2:

All the best, Martina !! :hearts: :drool:
You'll be missed !!! :awww: :hug:

Seems like the Top 100 players from Slovakia from 4 years ago are all gone... Nagyova, Fislova, Cervanova, Kurhajcova and now Sucha.

Dani is the only one who's still there. Hopefully for at least 5 years more. ;) :)

Jul 17th, 2008, 05:44 AM
Nagyova is on my Top 50 too... and also Dani obviously... and Cibulkova :)

Jul 17th, 2008, 06:25 AM
she was terrible player

Jul 17th, 2008, 07:41 AM
She was the first player I've ever seen a match live of. Goodbye Martina! :wavey:

that is nice.... my fist was Mary Pierce... she will be always in my memories, her match in Australian Open 1995... but Mary, pls dont retire as Martina :sad:

Jul 17th, 2008, 06:49 PM
:sad: Martina was a nice girl and a decent enough player. She could be very solid and tough to tackle from the baseline in her heydays. I enjoyed her attitude on court and the fact that she wasn't constantly whacking the ball and whinging about every little point like a big part of the Eastern European contingent.

Nonetheless, the retirement is hardly surprising, seeing as she dropped down to the ITF tour and was struggling so much to string together a few wins even there.

Good luck to her in her post-professional tennis life :D

Jul 17th, 2008, 06:50 PM

I saw her beat Bartoli in Pattaya last year, but everything went downhill after that. :sad:

Cervanova and Sucha are now both gone. :sad:

Has it been confirmed that Ludmila will not return? I'm really crossing my fingers that she will come back. She is one of those players that I really miss :sad:

Jul 18th, 2008, 01:51 PM
enjoy your new life, MARTINA! :) good luck!
