For what it's worth, Kveta may not be retiring. She said in her press conference after her first round doubles win that she was considering it at one point, but has NOT made any concrete plans to quit. As far as she's concerned, she will be playing in 2013.
Thanks a lot for this information! I didn't really trust that one guy who posted in here she wanted to have babies. I watched every match of hers here at the US Open that had been streamed and she was rock solid and I've never seen her play that well!
Matkowski said in the trophy ceremony that him and Kveta will be back next year and Kveta will try to reach the final for the 4th time and finally take that trophy
Also, I think Matkowski is a great partner for Kveta. Of course, playing his kind of tennis he wil miss a few here and there, and Kveta prefers the same style. Hit or miss basically. Makarova was lucky to save that match point at 9-10 as in 90% of the cases she would've missed that pick-up ball or that swinging volley at least since she was so out of balance.
Very very unfortunate loss for Kveta and Marcin, but this pairing is one of the best mixed doubles pairing I have seen so far. Kveta also said in her blog
that she loves the fact that Marcin gives 100% even tho he had lost early in doubles.
Great tournament for both
