Still mad at Vee for letting Kimmie Poo prevail in those three USO's. Those titles belonged to Vee.

How do you know she doesn't have a business. Doesn't she own a tennis academy?

Then her reason might not be financial then, unless the academy is floundering. I think a lot of European players prefer training in Spain.

Two words: Bad idea
Inspirational. Watch for Dementieva and Capriati to follow in her footsteps.

Why do you say that? I think she has a legitimate shot at a winning some titles. Look at grandma Serena making finals as a part time player.

"What do I really want from life? For the past seven years, I've been a full-time mum, and I love it. I really, really do," she said on a video posted to Instagram and Twitter.

"But I also loved being a professional tennis player. And honestly, I miss that feeling. So, what if I tried to do both? Could I be a loving Mum to my three kids and the best tennis player I can possibly be?..."

The comeback is being filmed as a documentary. All her preparation, travel, pre and post-matches ...
She's gonna make some $$$$$ out of the whole thing no matter what.
Smart !!!!!!!!!

"I think the one that I can most compare her (Andreescu) game to would probably be Kim back in the day, Clijsters," Wozniacki told a media conference. "I think because she moves well and she can stretch out and get to some balls and also play aggressive and using the angles. Obviously she prefers the forehand just like Kim.

"But she can move around the backhand and put the angle on it, so I think if I were to kind of compare to someone I know, everyone has their own style, but for me, playing her, it brings me back a little bit to when I played Kim."

Told of that comparison, Andreescu said at her media conference: "I actually looked up to her (Clijsters) a lot while I was just coming up, when I started playing tennis.

"So that's really nice to hear from other players, because I think my game is pretty similar to hers. Not as good yet."
