I always enjoyed watching her play tennis even if she didn't often get to the latter stages of every single tournament. But she always worked hard for it and in the end it payed off with a Wimbledon title just before her retirement! A nice career.

I think she would've continued playing if she didn't win Wimbledon. After her victory there, nothing more she could've done would've made her happier, so she was satisfied enough to call it quits.

I'm still pretty sad about this. It doesn't seem real. At the USO it will feel even worse.

I wanted to thank all her fans here as well for following with her and making this place such a good forum for discussion. It does feel like all of us followed her career and we lived every match with her...So many times we were devastated when she lost and so happy when she won. I guess we will have those amazing memories but thank you all for that.

I don' t know if it's a good new, but Marion has decided to keep her WTA ranking until the end of the year and will still fulfill whereabouts. Yesterday, she ate with Mladenovic's family and commented Vika-Caro tie on ESPN3.

Marion explained that she feels great now. She got tears in eyes when she saw her dad in Switzerland with a journalist the day after her decision. Momo is still disappointed. I must see this program again in order to a better opinion.

Marion is going to organize a press conference next sunday. If someone has yet an idea about what she's going to announce, he's welcome.

What to expect :
- a comeback ?
- pregnancy ?
- to be more clear about reasons of retirement ?

Marion has put a copy of the article on twitter. She explains that her 1st feeling of retirement was after she won 1st set vs lauren davis. Her feet and her shoulder were so painful that she stated in her mind : "What's the fuck i'm doing here ?"

She seems very happy now, visiting museum and central park, watching matchs....imo, no chance for a comeback. She hopes to be in marseille, september 10th at soccer match and will be on vacations with friends in maldives in November. So no pregnancy.

Press conference will probably be the place for more explanations about the retirement.

My feeling is that her schedule is fullfilled now. But what's about september and october ? Imo, she will visit family and friends, will rest at home. Will she miss pro tennis at this moment ? Nobody knows, even her.

Some young hopes already asked her some advices like corsican clothilde de bernardi. But she said she's not patient enough to be a coach. She also explained that a hope needs to have something mentally very special very soon in order to be competitive. Her desire to work hard around 11/12 yrs old in bad conditions made good background for futur.

We wait for more information during press conference.
