Besides Coetzer -- are there any near-grannies in the lower reaches of the rankings still hanging on for (wasted) life?

Also, anyone know who the oldest player to retire in the last decade is (besides Martina N) ?

Within a few short years we are going to have a lot of very fit, still playing well 30 plus women on the tour. It is fabulous..........Davenport, Capriati, Rubin, Schett, Pierce, Husarova, Seles, Frazier, Vento, Leon Garcia, Raymond, Pratt, Farina, Martinez, Callens, Likhovtseva, Coetzer and many more...all still extremely competitive.
Sure, Seles and Pierce are battling injuries and finding it hard to stay in touch with the top group, but there are many younger players battling injuries as well.....Kournikova, Petrova, Krasnoroutskaya to name a few.
I think we will see many of the top ladies playing well into there 30s.
