Hopefully, this is just out of cautious assessment that she's not
going to be ready for match-play by then, especially having missed
tune-ups, and not a re-injury or setback to her rehab of her shoulder.

I had my doubts when I found out how recently she'd had the operation
(October, maybe even late October).

The injury could possibly be it for her. its the same shoulder tendon
rip injury that caused Rafter to retire almost a year later. i don't
know how in the world Pat made it to another W final with that bum
shoulder. but he was pretty much finished after that.

Right, look at Tiger Woods.
Of course he made his situation even worse by playing in the U.S. Open
when he never should have.

I hope it's not the case, but that win may have screwed up the rest of
his career.

Well, that was always a possibility. Too bad, though. Not at all my
favorite player to watch, but of course always a fiery competitor, and the
women's game really needs those atm.

That was some expensive bad advice she got last March.

I enjoy watching her just fine. It's listening to her that bothers me.

Yes, it certainly was. 8;(

Well, you always want to try the "conservative"-- non-surgical-- option
first if at all possible, especially in athletes, where surgery might
result in professionally-devastating alteration or loss of function.

Sticking with it for seven months without improvement does sound a bit
much, although there may've been ill-defined ups-'n'-downs confusing the
issue.

This blows. I was looking forward to seeing her this AO. Even though I
was 100% she would not make it to the 3rd or 4th round. Anyway, I wish
her best of luck with her training. Hopefully she has her mind on
tennis, than something else.

Otherwise we might end up seeing another case of Kournikova/Hingis
style of decline and ultimate premature retirement. That will be just
bad for tennis.

They are slim by Serena/Davenport standards.

During the 70s the game was hardly physical. She did follow
Navratilova in gaining muscles in the 80s

Some of the pretty girls are pretty weak. They are slim and not too
muscular and that hurts them. Hingis/Kournikova/Graf/Sharapova. If you
look at Graf, you will say she had a long career. But her real career
was from 1987-96 just 10 years... compare that to Martina Navratilova/
Chris Evert etc.

She had some muscles. She wasnt pure muscle. That would be Navratilova
or Serena Williams. If a woman is too muscular she is not very
attractive. And Graf wasnt unattractive.

Hantuchove and Sharapova have a very slim frame. Yes Sharapova was
really thin when she won Wimby 04. But that was because she was just a
teenager and still not grown yet. I wouldnt say she is muscular now,
she has just grown.

Graf was pure muscle, though. Evert described her as big and strong (and
she was used to Navratilova!). And Sharapova was skinny as a teen, but
she's filled out a lot since - I wouldn't call her weak or even, really,
all that slim. Not abnormally so, anyway. And Hingis in her second career
was very toned.

The ones I'd call waiflike, which I think is what you mean, are Radwanska,
Myskina (when she was playing), Tracy Austin and Andrea Jaeger (both very
young when they had to stop playing), and sometimes Hantuchova. (last I
saw, DH was looking very healthy and muscled, given her frame.)

Graf and Sharapova don't belong in the slim and weak category.

And Evert was hardly a body-builder type.

If Sharapova had played women's basketball in college, she'd've been at
least a power-forward and maybe a center, in there banging with the
roughest of 'em.

Yeah, it is sad that the really pretty girls retire young and the ugly
