So was that her going away ceremony?? I hope there's a video...it's nice seeing all those players (veterans and young players) helping her say farewell! Huber, Black, Schiavone, Hantuchova, Safina, Dementieva, Srebotnik, Stubbs and others...they clearly like Ai.

Not my Sugi!!!! This makes me so sad to see her go. I always enjoyed watching her positive energy on court, and seeing how much fun she had out there playing. I hoped she would continue for as long as her body would let her, but I guess it just wasn't in her heart. Here's to a successful last tournament and to a wonderful future doing what makes her happy!

I'll miss this forum being here.... looks like Ai's Army will be moved after this week maybe. Might as well make use of it here.

Disappointing in a way, but I think it's not too bad for her career to end. This entire year has been a bit unfortunate and she'll probably finish 2009 out of the top 100. Overall, it was probably a good time to retire.

I wonder what she'll do afterwards. I always had the idea that she did everything with her mother around. Does that mean that after this, she can finally start exploring other interests and possibly romantic interests?

I look forward to hearing updates on how Ai's retirement. :D

A player who has hardly ever retired does so now. Really sad... I can't see her competing tomorrow as well then. :sad: Hope she will have a great life after tennis...

I'll miss you so much Ai! But I think now is the best time for her to move away from the game, and I wish her all the happiness and luck in the world for her new life :)

I'm sure! Daniela brought her A game last night, she was winning crucial points after Ai made mistakes :) Ai played well too, but she got nervous at the end of the first and the end of the second.

Good on Daniela, and Ai!:)
