Wozniacki Retiring after the AO....

Post by rex » Dec Fri 06, 2019 7:59 am

Caroline is giving it up after the AO next month..... Says her reason for retiring is not health-related, pertaining to her recent revelation that she has rheumatoid arthritis. Only 29, but will be her 30th year of birth (July).... Earned 35 mil in her career, recently married and reigned as #1 for a couple of years, tho' controversial for many. Well.....all the best to her.....

Thirty used to be the normal age of retirement for tennis players. Graf retired two months after her 30th birthday.

Retire at 30 should be for those who were already top-30 as teens.
Players that still have not made the top-100 by the age of 25 should still keep playing in their 50s .. lol lol lol

When someone is mediocre at age 25, expect them to be abysmal at age 35....
