You mean, players who are throwing in the towel. There have been several who have retired at some point this year (Woodbridge, Sargisian, etc.) but I haven't heard of anyone who's decided to leave the tour since Paris ended.

Titles: 2005 - PAW Washington 2006 - PTS Marseille, TT Miami Doubles(w/coreyschucky), TT Tokyo Singles 2007 - TT Hamburg Doubles(w/SarettaFan) 2008 - TT Indianapolis Singles Finalist: 2005 - PAW Montreal & Bucharest 2006 - TT Acapulco Singles & Doubles(w/Iza), TT Houston Doubles(w/robrulz5), PTS Monte Carlo, TT Barcelona Doubles(w/Peta Pan), TT Newport Doubles(w/adee-gee), PAW Umag 2007 - TT Queen's Singles & Doubles(w/SarettaFan), TT Champaign Doubles(w/TommyB.) 2008 - TT Auckland Doubles(w/invu2day), TT Recanati Singles, TT Newport Doubles(w/sploush), TT Indianapolis Doubles(w/sploush)

I think Costa and Corretja may be retiring, both legends, so they should get a great send off.

He has been all year. He wanted to play RG and got injured a week before it started. It was my last chance to see him

Re: Are their some players retiring ??

marat already did.
for the year

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

Wayne Black, who will retire after Tennis Masters Cup Shanghai, is hoping to end his career on a high note by winning the circuit finale with fellow Zimbabwean Kevin Ullyett. The team finished runner-up last year.

Yeah I'm sad for Corretja. I saw him only once live, at Wimbledon 2004, and despite the fact that Stepanek killed him, I enjoyed seeing him play.

Well, Corretja will be missed, but retirement only seems logical.
