Did Jolene Watanabe retire?

I've just read all of the commitment threads and I didn't see her name...She must have played over 25 Challengers last year (I think most every one in the USA)...I know she's getting up there in age...does anybody know if she retired? Thanks!

Yes, unfortunately she did retire late last year.
At the age of 32.

Pretty reasonable career reaching the Top 75 and also a win over Jennifer Capriati.

Thanks Luke! I'm sorry to hear that though...I am always a fan of longevity and Jolene was a real trooper even up til the end!

Hey danker...you are the only senior player who didnt renew at Brian's game...too busy?

Thanks again! I am grateful for know-it-alls like you and Jorn!!!

Hi Valda,

I was on holidays for a month and I was unable to check my email regularly.
Therefore, I missed out on renewing Brian's game.
