Farina Elia speaks!

“I have so many good memories,” said Farina Elia. “I really didn't expect to be ranked this high when I started out. I have to give all the credit to my husband for his love and support, especially for the last five or six years.”

“I'm proud of coming back from the injuries and proving to myself that I could do it again. I'm proud of playing the final this year in Amelia Island against Lindsay. I never thought I would reach that level again. I'm delighted with my wins over Venus and Serena this year. Also I'm proud of my win over Seles when we played Fed Cup in my country, that meant a lot to me. The highlight has to be reaching the quarterfinals of Wimbledon two years ago and playing three sets against Kim.”

i don't feel sad about Silvia retiring because it seems like it's what she wants and you can tell she's more than satisfied with her career. i will miss her game though - not many play like she does anymore.

have a great life!!

I guess for me any player that retires is a loss to the wta, because I think all players have their own style and personality. Silvia, one of the few Italians with a great one-handed backhand. I still remember the great year she had qualifying for the year-ending championships a few years back. Will be missed. Good luck to her in her future.

Miss Els Callens, take a note: this is what you say when you retire. Something classy or, at the very least, mature.

All props to Sylvia. Good luck in your "new" life! Stay in touch with tennis
