I Miss Martina!!!

I watched the Paris 99 final the other day and then it struck me. How much I missed Martina. She was my favorite player, I remember watching her win the Wimby doubles in 1996 with Sukova, and thinking about how talented she was. She played with Anna so well to for those 4 years, and I just think its sad, that she did not rest her injury long enough.

And now...

I really hope she can come back, because I feel to some extent her career is unfinnished and she can still win a few more slams including the French Open. I hope her ankle gets better to!

Yeah i miss her too Just watching the French Open has made me realise how much more into tennis i was when she played. I was really passionate when i watched her matches, and i don't have that feeling with any other player, and don't know if i ever will

but still, ultimately i want whats best for her and i want her to be happy, and if she's happy with her decision than i'll accept it

Definitely agree. I'm still coming to terms with it, just simply it isn't the same without her.

yeah.. Eurosport sent the RG final 1999 the other day.... (the ball was IN, dammit )

tennis is nothing without martina. I don't enjoy it anymore. when i watch the ladies play, i always think how Marti would have played that point. i would imagine Martina running to the net, with a great volley and wins the point... or simply just her backhand down the line *weeps* And her surprising, perfect drop shots....

I still follow some women's tennis but not as much as when Martina was playing. It's just not the same.

But you'll almost have to get up in the middle of the night to queue up to see some matches

Marri I know, I did exactly the same, I've done it quite a few times with Marti at the Oz Open, I will never forget staying up for the matches in 2001 when she beat Serena and Venus.

i'm supporting justine now, but it just isnt the same without martina

i agree with flappie. you'll never catch me waking up in the middle of the night to watch matches anymore except for the rare occasion

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
