QF WTA Marbella 2010 (beating Clijsters and Niculescu, lost to Errani in 3 sets)

I just came across this article from a few months ago where Sherazad Reix mentions a possible retirement.

"I'm 26 and I never played a grand slam," she said. "I just played the French Open in doubles this year, but I never played in singles. So I was thinking, 'It's my last year of tennis. I would love to play the qualies of a grand slam. I don't want ... after 27 ... I'm married, I want kids so if i'm not able to be in the qualies of a grand slam, what's the point of tennis for me?' I want to be able to see and do all the things in my life. We don't make a lot of money on the second level. I'm enjoying right now because I'm playing well. If I can make the qualies of the slams, great, I will continue playing. But if not, fine, I will have a baby. So I'm playing without pressure, fighting, trying to make my game better."

She has improved tremendously over the years and finished the year at #239 having never finished in the top 400 before. I really hope she plays on until RG where she should get a QWC next year.

Reix may actually not need the RG QWC, who knows. It would be a shame to retire now that she has reached a CHR close to top 200!

I will always remember her for the shocking Clijsters win

Isabella Holland retired and Ashleigh Barty
So sad to hear Isabella Holland retired :sad: A wasted talent

I still remember when Gojnea played GS qualies some years ago, seems like ages. No clue if she was just playing a few tournaments in Romania for fun or if she was attempting a comeback.

Beatriz :awww:

I'd be pissed if Reix retired now that I just started following her result a little bit and that she seems to be near her best- I hope she keeps improving and continue playing next year and who knows
babies can wait a few years , I guess - but she knows better ;)
