A Conchita Martinez fan asks...is it time for Arantxa to hang up her racket?

I never thought I would be asking myself this but the last couple of months have been very demoralising to see Conchita struggle in all the tournaments shes played over the last couple of months. It is awful to see Conchita, who has had an illustrious career and epitomised hard-work and mental strength, fall week-in, week-out to players whose careers are incomparable to Conchitas

It is awful for me simply being a fan so what must it be like for Conchita? I dunno if Martinez has an injury or that she has lost the feeling for tennis. Unless Conchitas results start to pick up again, I really am starting to think that this year will be Conchitas last on the tour, in singles at least.

I'm interested to see what other Conchita fans and non-conchita fans alike have to say about this subject

I dont think she has to retire just cause she is having poor results lately. She was off during lots of weeks and she has played only a few matches since her come back. This is not best Conchita's surface so its more difficult to her to play it, but i dont think that players like Muller Carlsson or Brandi are best players than Conchita now, its just a problem of form, Conchita needs to back to her form and that takes time. I think that in a few months we will see the Conchita we want to see.

I'm too shocked right now to answer such a qustion. I just can't believe she lost to Asa

I don't hope she thinks about retirement, because she is still one of the best players in the world.I'm sure if she finds her normal form she can return back to the top 15 .

I wish you better luck next time ,Conchita:)
