You aren't the only one by any means. Again, I can't say it enough, she was a pure talent, beautiful in her game. She made tennis look like art. I hope maybe she will get the itch and at least try her luck at doubles again. You don't lose the talent that you are given, and she had plenty. (as seen in Capriati) Imagine her and Kim or Davenport. With Martina's pouching and anticipation plus beautiful technique, she could make quite a doubles specialist.

I have gotten used to the tour without Hingis by now.

So do I! But Justine is doing a good job of playing the role of 'The Great Neutralizer'.

Hardly Venus destroyed her the last 7 times they've played including this years A.O. 3 and 3!

:wavey: Me too!!! Loved her game...Semi-Liked her....sometimes we can dispise players and then they leave.....we miss them.

I still think expect a WC @ Zurich....she's been awefully quiet!!

Perhaps she needed a bit of time off....if that tiger is still in her heart, she won't leave it too much longer.

Martina was a smart player on court, and obviously a smart player off court...at her age...Having won Wimbledon...she will be back.

Perhaps the chance to realise that the money she won isn't enough for life...personally I think she has been building herself up...if Henin can...then Hingis can again too!!!

I'm sure if Martina visited this board she'd appreciate all the comments about posters "missing" her from the tennis arena :sad: but that being said we can only assess the reason why Martina isn't playing...she simply cannot compete without experiencing pain...she has said repeatedly that she loves the sport and would like to come back but "her body won't let her"!! :sad: Maybe with the passage of time....she may be able to play without pain someday....but the prognosis is not looking good! :confused:

I miss her too....for different reasons though....don't u think u should talk to someone and I mean someone who is professional about this? She has been gone for some time now and if you haven't gotten over the separation then u need to seek help....not to be making fun of u and ur emotions but come on. Just be happy that she has accomplish alot in her career and still have the means to have a happy life. It's not like she is in the poor house or anything or she can't walk...she is doing fine now come to terms with it and move on.......just breathe.

I couldn't agree with you more. I really do hope she makes an attempt- well, at least a healthy, pain-free attempt. She played tennis with her mind, almost as if she were the mad hatter and the other girls were silly Alice wondering in and out of the masterful points she was constructing. Like a spider, really-

SMARTINA!!! :hearts:

The WTA Tour seems so bland without her. The void still hasn't been filled. :sad:
Wouldn't it be great to see her come back and win the French Open over one of the Williams sisters? :eek:

Maybe just as she "could see three shots ahead", she saw that she woulnd't be able to do much w/those shots?

Seriously I enjoyed her game and I'm somewhat disappointed that she just rolled over.

I think it's the ultimate revenge for a child star to retire early and deflate all those parent and industry expectations. I like to ride horses too, and I think she's perfectly happy. With the direction the game is moving- it will only be a matter of a decade or so until we see that tennis has evolved into some sort of computerized rollerball mutation resembling nothing like the original game. :mad:
