Girls just wanna retire

Did the Elite Female Athletes of the World Society meet recently and decide that they had enough?

First this yesterday. Then this today.

If Tiger and Federer retired on consecutive days there would probably be weeping in the streets. These two stories will likely be forgotten by tomorrow.

Sad, that.

Justine Henin retiring is a big blow to the WTA ... she had a great style, that awesome backhand. You can't presume to really know what it was like for her, but she'd had injuries, and to not be able to play in the style to which she was accustomed ... it's too bad she couldn't find a way to adjust. It's lot like how Guy Lafleur retired abruptly the first time.

(Now let's all pat ourselves on the back for being more enlightened with women's sports than this guy.)
