First, my thanks to Gallofa for giving us the good news of the Indian Wells tournament with Daniela. :)

Martina has also entered the Kroger St. Jude event in Memphis where she will play with Liezel Horn-Huber.

I wish them all the best! And want to thank Martina for giving her fans the opportunity to see her one more year!!

Go Martina!

Adrian, I don't care about the season-ending too much. I want Martina to have fun this year. She tried making the final 8 last year and hated every minute of those final weeks when she & Arantxa were under so much pressure to qualify. She doesn't need that kind of pressure anymore. Now is the time to enjoy the tennis & appreciate every moment. That is what she is trying to do, I think :)

PS: the tournament is in 3 weeks time!

Thanks Zummi :D


Actually, maybe not worring about the season ending, will be better for her....


I heard somewhere she was was going to kick off in France, but heck, it's only 2 weeks later :D

No, I don't think Martina is playing singles.

The current top 4 seeds are:

1 - Jelena Dokic (YUG)
2 - Silvia Farina-Elia (ITA)
3 - Amanda Coetzer (RSA)
4 - Lisa Raymond (USA)

the tournament director is hoping the Dubai event will be cancelled and Venus and Monica will then play as well.

Martina N. please retire. What more can you do? You are the all-time greatest, but enough already.

I think she may be getting paid to be there.
He paid Agassi a reported $300,000 for a 50 minutes loss to Guga.

With a line up like this, I wouldn't be at all surprised if the promoter paid Martina to play. She would be the biggest name there, for sure.:hearts:

Andre Agassi usually gets $300,000 or more to play in small tournaments. In my opinion, WHY NOT? He's famous so why shouldn't he?:p

I seriously doubt Martina is going to get $300K. :kiss:
