All General Discussion concerning WTA and ATP
I am simply not excited by this news. Two/three years ago, it would have made more sense, but now? The next generation has arrived and in 2020 they will be too good for her (I hope).
And if not, she makes a mockery out of WTA. Imagine her winning a slam (or two). It's like saying to every slam-winner of the last 8 years: "put an asterisk behind your slam title(s): you only won because I did not feel like playing"...
I hear the haters already on all fora... no, best thing for WTA is that Clijsters does not get close to any important final. She retired, is even in the HOF (for which you need to be retired for 5 years), and it should stay that way. I bet she may even steal an Olympic ticket from an active Belgian player.. Ugh...
Let us see what happens in the next 4 months; maybe her body gives up already before playing a first event.
"Never argue with an idiot - they take you down to their level and then beat you on experience"
"Don't wrestle with a pig: you both get dirty, but the pig actually likes it"
That might very well be the case. I do think she deserves a few WC especially in the beginning. It's just good for business.
