Nicole Vaidisova Retires Aged 20

Obviously someone didn't read my post from last week about Nicole Vaidisova. In it I said that although she's not been playing well recently (and that is a HUGE understatement) I was confident she would get her game back on track and get back to the top one day. It would seem Nicole does not agree as there are reports she has rejected the offer of a wildcard to play in next weeks Sony Ericsson Open in Miami, pulled out of all remaining tournaments this season and called time on her once promising tennis career.

And what is the former world number 7 planning for the next chapter of her life? Apparently she's going to be a housewife as the reports also state that she is to wed her boyfriend, fellow Czech tennis player Radek Stepanek. While this is not the first time such rumours have cropped up but this time I have a bad feeling it might be true. Of course I have no idea what kind of guy Stepanek is but looks-wise she could do a whole lot better. Oops did that sound shallow?

Well I for one am deeply saddened by this decision. This girl had bucket loads of potential and in my opinion had future world number 1 written all over her. However its her life, and if her heart really isn't in it then she should be free to do what she wants. Nicole, it was good while it lasted. All the best you beautiful Goddess.

  1. You're right about his looks....he's married far above himself. She's young enough to get a tennis career going again.
