Next Big Name Pro To Retire?
 
Who will be next to retire?

Hewitt? AO 2013 would be a respectable place to bow out, but I think he still wants to march on another year or two.

Ferrero this year Valencia!

Good call, I forgot about LLeyton

I voted for Fish on medical grounds given his two recent heart scares.

Radek Stepanek.

Is Bastl still active btw?

Hewitt is next to retire.

I thought he already confirmed his retirement?

if not him, then I'm going to say Davydenko. You can tell his passion for the game is fading & fading fast.

Bhupathi is retiring next year

Hewitt/Davy. Nalby might still have some to go for another year. Haas is playing great since defeating Fed in Halle, probably motivation will prolong for another year or so.

Soderling? It's now over a year since the illness began AND he is to be a father any day now. Ancic never recovered from his mono.

It will be sad if he doesn't get back but very understandable.

Isn't Ancic officially retired yet?! Wow.. I thought that he would have said goodbye to the game a long time ago..

Swedish news reported that Söderling is shooting for a comeback at the beginning of next year!

Ancic recovered from the mono, but he never recovered from the back injury.

Yes, he's officially retired. He's taking a graduate law course at Columbia in NYC, there's a thread in the retired pro section. :)

I say Hewitt is the next to retire, at the Aus Open. After Hewitt, I would guess Davydenko. Haas will do one more full year if he can stay healthy, I think Nalbandian will make it as far as the USO next year.

I can't imagine tennis still being for Hewitt.

At age 38?! Didn't even know he was still around. Still not sure if he is a "big name" player though...

Sabratha 09-20-2012 10:20 PM

I'd say Hewitt.

sureshs 12-03-2012 09:02 AM

Chela just announced his retirement
