Second Serve


Former No. 1 Amelie Mauresmo decided today to bow out from the world of professional tennis. The Frenchwoman cites her age as the main reason for her decision. "I don't want to train anymore. I had to make a decision, which became evident in the last few months and weeks. When you grew older, it's more difficult to stay at the top."
Despite her age, Mauresmo had a successful final year. She won her 25th singles title and defeated 7 top 10 players.
When asked if she'd make a comeback, she said her decision was final. "I lifted trophies in every city in the world and I lived 10 magical and unbelievable years." She completed those 10 years playing with a Youtek Radical. And in those 10 years, she kicked a lot of butt in her Reebok Net Master IIIs.

No one can fight the aging process. But do you think 30 is too young for an athelete who just had a great year to retire? What age would you consider someone old in tennis?
