During the opening segment they said she has not entered any fall tournaments and this may be her last.

Why do they ignore MONICA and only bring her up to say that this might be her last tournament, she might be retiring, she is already 28 (OMG like that is supposed to be ancient), blah, blah, blah. :fiery:

This is their wishful thinking. They don't know what to make of her. She's supposed to be ancient history in their way of looking at things -- yet she's a top 5 player

That's a very good way of putting it, mishar. And of course, Zurich was mentioned. It's too bad that a multi-billion dollar television network knows less about their programming than we do.

Why is there no interview of Monica posted from yesterday?? It seems like this happens a lot. I'm sure they asked her about retirement (again). It has become a seriously boring question. And I agree with mishar, I don't think they know what to make of her still playing great tennis.

From how they said it on TV, it seemed to me that they said something like "Monica didn't enter any tournaments this summer, it might be her last US Open". In other words, they are basing that it might be her last US Open because they think that she doesn't want to play anymore (she didn't enter the summer tournaments) but that she did enter the US Open to give it a last shot.

What they of course forgot is that Monica was injured and this was the reason why she didn't play during the summer :rolleyes:

it's amazing how much people want monica to go away, if I was her, I would play for another 20 years, just to piss them off!
