I thought she would retire at the end of this season... but today I found an article which says she would play some doubles next season. <br /> Is it true? If so,..it'd be great. She's so talented to retire now.... <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <br /> And maybe she's too young to retire from her job in her early 30s. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Good luck, Nathalie!

----------- Article ------------<br />Fourth-seeded Nathalie Tauziat of France lost 6-3, 5-7, 3-6 to Chanda Rubin in the second round.

``The end of the season has been very hard physically,'' Tauziat said. ``I should have won this match.''

Tauziat will complete her singles career next week at the Sanex Championships in Munich, Germany. Tauziat, the 1998 Wimbledon runner-up, has indicated she will play a limited doubles schedule in 2002.

I think it´s a brilliant choice

If you think of her skipping Australia in recent years ( except the last ) and play 1-2 events in France in spring indoors, then rest for the 2 big events in the US, rest for the European clay courts, play 2-3 of the biiger ones, return to Roland Garros, play all on grass <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> and then just 1-2 hardcourt events and maybe a dozen of European indoor events in the fall of 2002, Nathalie has an excellent schedule of maybe 18 events for doubles

I think that maybe Po who wouldn´t have had a partner for 2002 persuaded her to continue just for doubles with her and that maybe they want to play a full schedule next year and adjust tournament plans to have just fun on the tour
