dava_russianrule, I really don't think that Monica wants to retire. It's the media who puts words in her mouth, but I feel that if she's healthy she could play for at least 2-3 more years. Look at Agassi. But she always gets injured, I really hope this isn't serious.
hingis-seles, you're right. She doesn't have anything to prove and she's the greatest. But I really hope that she will have a "nice end", it would be a shame if her career ends on an injury. She deserves better!
You know if Monica won the US Open this year, I think she would might retire, it would be a fairytale ending, and everyone would cry. I hope Monica does not retire, but I just get the feeling. She seems to ahve a lost her X factor in matches. The only time I have seen her play 100% this year was in Dubai.
