What's your point? Are you saying Martina would still have retired, even if she was still winning, cos she prefers riding horses and going to school?antonella said:
Not only that, but even with justine's small size, she's still far more athletic than my poor marty.Willow said:She did improve physically and become a lot fitter...it just didn't improve her game...Justine is smaller but plays more aggressively.

One can say that it did cost her the grandslam, I think from the Horse Accident to the RG Title was 8 weeks I believe, She commited her self knowing she was fit and got to the final, which she lost to Iva Majoli in 3 Sets, and that she had previoulsy lost to Iva before that I think. If you find her Interview she doesn't blame her loss on the Horse Accident she had.hingis-seles said:I think she was stubborn in that she didn't work on her serve.
However, I have to agree that she wasn't into tennis as much as Melanie was. She wasn't interested in practicing and was not nearly as driven as Melanie. Melanie was a perfectionist and a workhorse. Martina had her natural gifts.
If tennis was Martina's life, she wouldn't continue to ride horses, even after she got thrown off one which cost her the Grand Slam in 1997.
