Re: Esther Vergeer announces her retirement from tennis

Esther

I pretty much knew this for a while - she spoke about her doubts very openly at an interviewsession I was at and in a documentary on Dutch tv. But to actually take the decision was very tough for her. Guess she just needed time.

What she has meant for Paralympic sport can not be underestimated. And she will continue to work for the visibility and acceptation of Paralympic athletes. Through Team Parastars, through the Esther Vergeer Foundation and in other ways. We'll see a lot more of her! At least in the Netherlands we will.


Esther also said she will do some basketball (which she did at a high level until she had to choose between that and tennis) and athletics, "for fun, and if it goes well, we'll see."

Not really surprising but still sad news. Enjoy your life after this wonderful and legendary tennis career.
