If Monica retired, how would you react?

I think Monica makes tournaments for interesting, and if she retired I wouldn't show so much interest in them.

Hopefuly Monica won't retire for ages and will get better soon and will be fit enough to play!

I would be sad because I haven't seen her play enough.
She's one of my favourite players but I hardly ever see her play.
It's not the time yet, she must reenter the top 10.

Well, it depends, if she retires on a high note like wins a 10th slam or if she makes a decision on her own terms and is happy with it, then it will be hard on me but I guess it will be easier to accept.

However if she retires because she's having injuries and her career ends on a low note, then I would really really be crushed.

My dream would be that she wins Wimbledon this year and ends her career in a stunning way. My nightmare is that she will continue having injuries and then she will simply be forced to leave and move on. Monica deserves to leave tennis on a high note and it's not too late, look at Jana, Steffi, Andre, etc. they all won slams when they were older.

And I will lose a lot of interest for tennis when she leaves, but I'm sure I'd still watch a little bit of tennis when it's on tv, but won't follow it on a daily or weekly bases like now.

But whatever happens, I'll be very proud of Monica and very thankful for everything she has done in tennis. A true champion!

I don't think I'd cry but I'd be a little sad. I think I've gotten over that 'what could have happened if that incident never happened...' stage so I'd be ok with her retiring. I'd like to see her start a family like dear Steffi and enjoy her millions.

Even if she does retire, I can guarantee that she'll do a lucrative exhibition tour. I'd be shocked if she doesn't. so you'll probably have the chance to see her play even after she retires.

I'd say 'shit' and then call someone and ask them to play Fed Cup instead.

I'd like to call Jen though.
