    She has something over 500 straight wins in women's wheelchair tennis..and I was shocked that she wasn't competing this year at the Aussie Open. Does anybody have any news if she is injured or what? Can't find anything on it..

    Well according to her twitter account she said she's at a little tournament by the JCfoundation? but "not as a player but as a coach"...not sure if this means she retired? :(

    Maybe ASH SMITH knows as he is coaching the British kids at Tarbes?
    Looks like she is out there coaching...
