Even the good-bye is so peculiar with such a video, what a character. What upsets me the most is she barely played at all these last years and there was alway hope to see her back in top form.

Re: Marina Erakovic retires

One of the nicer players with a mental blockage to stop her reaching her full potential.

Will we still see her as a musician though?

Re: Marina Erakovic retires

Her wikipedia page is really detailed for someone who never made Top 30 in singles.

This is so sad. Her match with Lisicki in Memphis was the first pro match I ever saw live

Re: Marina Erakovic retires

Sad to see marina go she had such a great game. But mentally she did not have it.

Good luck in your new life

Re: Marina Erakovic retires

Was kind of hoping she would make one more comeback but it was getting more and more unlikely of course.Nice retirement video from a really nice player.

Should really have achieved more but then you can say that for many players I suppose.

Re: Marina Erakovic retires

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!

Marina!!! She had an excellent grass court game.. Should have won more titles, both in singles and doubles. Probably should have beat Robson in the third round of wimbledon that one time.. Such a fun personality and a talented muscian to boot! Wishing her all the best...

Pssst, who will be the no.1 Kiwi now??

Shout out to her number 1 fan @The Walking Bye who must have also retired from this board...

Re: Marina Erakovic retires

just saw that on facebook .. but you just knew it was coming...


would have deserved a 2nd title somewhere on grass or indoors, reached 2 finals in Quebec-too bad she couldn't win one for instance but at least she didn't retire titleless ..

always had a soft spot for her , the kind of player I would often root for when seeing her in a draw , granted she was not facing one of my main faves



nice farewell video, Marina enjoy yourself in this new chapter of your life, now

her friend and former doubles partner for a while Arantxa will soon follow her in retirmeent



all the players I like are retiring (Fran, Roby, Marina, Anabel, Arantxa....... ) like flies fall

can't help but thinking that might have contributed to Marina's decision.

Shes been a great torch bearer for New Zealand tennis, and sad to see her go.

Unfortunately apart from a few guys in dubs, our womens tennis is looking bleak, hopefully she can involve herself in kiwi tennis and a few emerging talents can come through
