Let me post these very LAST PICTURES of JUSTINE'S RADIANT press conference

It's the only thing that consoles me.
How much she was at peace, and how happy and radiant she looked. The beautiful things she said, and the way she said them.
Radical and enigmatic till the end.
MERCI, Justine!

I'm so glad that she's happy; that's the only comfort I can take. I wish her success in the future. Hope to see you around Justine. Simply beautiful.

Re: Let me post these very LAST PICTURES of JUSTINE'S RADIANT press conference

i'm still lost for words... Can't take it yet. The tour without her just doesn't feel the same, especially because it's clayseason. An RG without justine in it... A new winner.. This is just gonna be wierd.

To some of us passionate followers it actually feels like a funeral.(it does to me) I'm never gonna see that amazing game which i fell in love with anymore. No one played the way she did and no one will probably even come close for a long long time. A part of tennis has 'died' for me. There will probably be no one i can cheer as passionate for as her. It feels like the last chapter of a book that i just finished reading. A sweet ending but not as satisfactionary or expected as you thought it would be. Something that just 'hits you in the face', just like that.

She looks finally at peace to me, so relaxed.

Best she's ever looked.

"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Re: Let me post these very LAST PICTURES of JUSTINE'S RADIANT press conference

I've said this many times before, but Justine is nowhere near bad looking or even close to the words that come out of so many people's mouths. I think she has a nice, unique face. Unfortunately, her outfits/hat on court never brought that out all the time.

Re: Let me post these very LAST PICTURES of JUSTINE'S RADIANT press conference

Some of us are acting like Justine is dead. Even me. Seeing Carlos' tears just made me sad again and I have ot remind myself that she's only leaving tennis; she's not dead.

She really does look at peace. I can't imagine that this decision was made in any haste. I just wish her the best.

Re: Let me post these very LAST PICTURES of JUSTINE'S RADIANT press conference

wow, she's actually not that ugly. In the end, I am sad though. I hated her because she got in Maria's way, but WTA is a little empty without her.

Re: Let me post these very LAST PICTURES of JUSTINE'S RADIANT press conference

First time ever I saw her warm-hearted, vulnerable, caring and also emotional strong at the same time - this made her beautiful and shining. A robot turned into a great champ and a remarkable character. That last shot hit straight to the centre.
