Unhappy Kim announces "retirement" for 2007

I've just heard on the radio that Kim is planning to retire after the 2007 season - possibly, her farewell match could be during the Proximus Diamond Games in Antwerp (February 2008)

Here's a dutch article on it http://www.vrtnieuws.net/sport_maste...ers/index.html

she has always said she's not gonna play untill she's 30.
Kinda knew she would retire within 2 or 3 years
still, it's sad to hear

Yeah, she always said that she would only play for 2 or 3 more years, but still... it's kinda weird to hear the exact date!

Kim Clijsters denkt aan stoppen

Kim Cijsters met problematisch lijf.Kim Clijsters denkt aan stoppen eind 2007. "Zoals het er nu naar uitziet, ga ik nog door tot eind 2007, of tot en met de Diamond Games begin 2008 in Antwerpen", zegt Clijsters op drie dagen van de start van de US Open. "Mijn lichaam geeft nu al veel problemen." (belga)


This is going to be so weird. It will feel like an emptiness but somewhere, i knew that she couldn't play this game for long but now when it's officially, i feel a little bit down.

Let's just enjoy the 2 coming years

That's how she feels now

And if that's the way it is so be it, it will be hard but I will take any chance I get to see her play live

Indeed, that's how she feels now. Let's just wait and see, but damn, nice way of waking up today If she does decide to quit, then that sucks, but I'll be behind her 100%

Ow and everyone, just a word of advice: Stay out of the thread over at GM where they posted the same thing (Lovely new name for Lleyton btw, Fi ) The best thing we can do right now is not freak out about it and just accept that it might happen that soon.

Yeah, I realised my mistake But on the one hand, that would be nice but on the other hand, saying farewell in Het Sportpaleis would also be a great way to say goodbye in my opinion.
