nah, conchi loves being on the circuit too much, where she has a lot of friends on tour. she'll stay on, playing doubles as well until at least 32/33, and then play the over-35s doubles. she had a strong finish to 2002, and will most probably be top-30 by end of Jan/Feb and possibly top-20 again by May.

her game is less about speed and more about touch and finesse, wbich means if she's not injured, she'll be just as effective in her tennis for 2-3 more years. ASV's main weapon, speed, is the thing that fades with age of course, so she increasingly found that she had less to bring to the table against her opponents.

Conchi is still good, she wont retire in 1 or 2 years

She showed improvements at the end of this year which I think will prompt her to play throughout 2003. Probably retire at the end of next year, with Amanda Coetzer and Silvia Farina Elia and possibly Monica Seles and Jennifer Capriati!

Wow! I didnt know that you honestly think there is a possibility that Capriati could retire next year. BTW how old is Jennifer?

Monica will NOT retire before Conchita. She already missed time due to the stabbing incident. That would give her reason to play longer. She said so herself. :p

i think we know that monica is something of an attention-seeker (the autobiography, the traumatic tone to her statements) and a people-pleaser, so i think she will always announce well in advance of when she will retire, to give the chance for fans to bid her farewell, and go out on a big stage e.g. US Open 2004. I think she'll make an announcement at the end of 2003 season, that the 2004 season will be her farewell tour. there's no way monica will just quietly slip away.

i think conchi is also a bit more like a sukova, zvereva, stubbs, raymond, tauziat type. somebody who doesn't make a show of retiring, continuing to play until a late time, even well past best form, but is sort of retired, but then playing some doubles here and there, possibly coaching a la Tarabini.

i say monica will play until end of 2004 unless 2003 is really bad, and conchi will reture around 2004 as well (after olympics) but play occasionally until she's about 33.

i dont know how Steffi did it,
she gave birth well past 30's,
but if Martinez wants a baby,
she better quits tennis soon
and start working on it really hard
