I wanna know why Tauziat and Huber are still in the ranking list after both of them retired?
I recall that Van Roost's name disappeared form the list after she'd retired ....the reason (that i've heard from wtaboard)was the player don't wanna see her ranking fall down and down.....

You have to request to have your ranking removed. That's why Anke and Nathalie are still there... they haven't requested the removal of their ranking. That is also why Van Roost probably disappeared right away as well, she probably asked to be taken off.

I am sure every player and almost every fan would be a little sad to see the name NATHALIE TAUZIAT dissapear off the rankings list after eighteen years.

Hey, I didn't notice Anke was taken off.. she must have requested.

Nathalie definately wasn't my favorite player, but she proved that it wasn't too late to improve by reaching her highest rankings when she was in her 30's

Nathalie wants to play doubles this year I think so she will want to stay on the doubles rankings. Maybe if she is still Top 32 she will play singles at Wimbledon one last time as a seed!!!

Izzy: My guess is that a lot of people pray that they will not have to read another message from you.
Easy now: He only regurgitated the widespread notion - perhaps with humorous intentions - that Tauziat was scorned by many of her colleagues. While I'm sure they are not bothered still seeing her name in the rankings, you can't dispute that she made herself rather unpopular after revealing "Les Dessous du Tennis Feminin".

That's an interesting thought, Mark.. I remember Yayuk Basuki retired and then about a year later she returned to play Wimbledon once more. I wonder if Nathalie will do the same....
She said she will be playing doubles and the reason we haven't seen that yet is because she normally skips the Australian season.. in fact, looking at her grand slam record, she has only played the AO a handful of times in her long career!

I think when your retired you should be taken off its not fair when you take into account bonus points and so on!

Some players like to stay in the rankings until a tournament they like or grandslam they play well in comes along, oif there ranked at a fairly good ranking they may play again.
