    I loved her, sad to see her quit. I have taken to watching a lot more womens tennis in the last few years because the mens game is just getting too much about serve and acing.

    Surprised she didn't stick it out a couple more weeks for the French Open.

    Yeah, and the hot chicks in short skirts and tight shirts have nothing to do with it

    Wow; she's only 25. Had a rough time with a divorce a few years back. Amazing player for her small size; compared to Serena, she looked like one of the ball girls........make that Ball Boys.

    Mother died at 12, estranged from her father and siblings for 10 years, nasty divorce, small frame... had a lot going against her which makes her accomplishments even more impressive. I don't follow tennis much (except the hot chicks in short skirts and tight shirts) but I have a lot of respect for her.
