I'm not holding my breath. However, a simple "Yes, I've retired from pro tennis," in some form or other does seem appropriate. It sounds simple enough; maybe it isn't and she's working her way up to it. Maybe she is disappointed in herself for not being able to finish her career on a real high such as she believes was expected of her and hoped to achieve herself. Perhaps an announcement is just an exercise in self-importance to Jelena or maybe just stating the bleeding obvious and so unnecessary on either count. Who can say why there hasn’t been or may not be an announcement. The official word will filter down in due course I feel sure - hopefully while there is still sand in the hourglass and the memories have not faded.I guess it really is over now:sad: would really like an official announcement though!!
