heaven knows when he will return or retire or what??
tennis is not the same without this great shotmaker-nowadays there are too many baseliners wanting to play too safe or simply a few with good all round all court game.But we need a few players who are always willing to take a few risks with some fantastic shotmaking.
simply too frustrated with Paradorn.

Recently I realised how much I miss Paradorn><.
My 2 favs are Hewitt & Paradorn, well Lleyton`s nearly finished but atleast he managed a wonderful 10 yr career! >>Whereas with Srichaphan I just sense a huge missed opportunity><. I thought Paradorn could even win a slam, though realistically a Masters title was within his reach (remember him reaching SFs @ Paris & Miami)..
Paradon was so exciting to watch & he was a huge boost to mens tennis in Asia (esp in Thailand- they made the Bangkok Open due to his popularity)..

A French website said that he might come back in next months, for Bangkok especially :
Paradorn is not retired! :woohoo:
from yahoo sports:
Paradorn delays comeback, denies he is retired
BANGKOK (AP)—Former No. 9-ranked Paradorn Srichaphan has denied he is effectively retired from tennis, but has delayed his comeback again.
The 30-year-old Thai hasn’t played on the ATP Tour since March 2007 due to a wrist injury.
“I’m not going to quit. I just want to be back when I’m really ready,” said Paradorn, who had operations on the wrist in Los Angeles in 2007 and Bangkok this year.
He originally planned a return to the circuit last year, then postponed it to his home Thailand Open this September, but now said a 2010 return was just as likely.
“My wrist is getting better but not good enough to let me hit like I used to. I wanted to come back in the Thailand Open but at this stage the chance to play any match this year is 50 percent.”
Despite his long absence from the tour and passing 30 years old, Paradorn still believes he could make a successful return.
“Age is nothing but a number. I have a protected ranking (top 80) and can use it anytime.”
Married to former Miss Universe Natalie Glebova, Paradorn had spent his time away from the tour motorcycling, appearing on a Thai sports TV show and most recently opening an Italian cuisine restaurant, creating the impression that his life after tennis had already begun.
Paradorn was the first player born in Asia to reach the world’s top 10. He won 5 career titles, the last one in Nottingham in 2004.

Good god. Give it a rest with this is Pardorn coming back to play.
He likes to keep his name in the press. He adores the limelight.
He now is going into movies as an actor,,,LOL.
Enjoys racing and spending time with his wife.
The Thais I talked to could not care less about this guy.
They are tired of him, his cockiness,and cheapness(They will never forget he only contributed 10,000b for the tsunami relief)
He had a shining moment for Thai/Asian tennis,but get over it,he has
moved on. I met him several times in Los Angeles from a mutual friend. Nice guy,but his tennis career is over. He is even by US standards,
a millionaire.He just doesn't care anymore and at age 30? Fuggetaboutit.:)

Thats why he is still missing...

Rumor has it that Paradorn has retired because of a motorcycle accident that left him with two broken hands and a broken wrist :sad:
11-14-2011, 06:17 AM
I couldn't find any information about a motorcycle accident. In fact Paradorn is playing on the Masters Tour now. This is for older players who have retired from the regular ATP Tour. He retired from the regular ATP Tour in 2010 and also he and that beautiful bride of his divorced early this year :sad:
