Kind of sad to see him go. He was a terrific player but alas his success was rather fleeting and then almost forgotten.

He has been off the tour for a while, he has a hot wife and should have set himself up quite well for life after tennis.

I guess it's official now?... he hasn't played a singles match since Miami 2007, so it kinda felt like he already had. :awww: I'm sure he's already used to his new life now. :)

kinda old dude -- june 4 2010. read about this while back last week. anyways hate to see players go. plus going along with what idolwatcher said -- most of the time it doesnt matter whether these players retire -- its not like the guy was active on the pro circuit at least recently.

TENNIS takes d backseat, ACTING comes to d four. will miss him.

Goodbye Paradorn. I will miss you and your great game :sad:

All the best to him. Had a nice game to watch and he did well to get to the fringes of the top 10 in a competitive time for tennis.

Best of luck Paradorn! lucky devil you :devil: ed.jpg

I'm sure he was an inspiration for a great many tennis players and fans and will continue to be. Sorry to see him retiring, but the decision is totally expected.

Now he has his businees intersts and budding acting career as well as a happy home life to look forward to ;)

The best Asian player to date.

The best Asian player to date.

Michael Chang was Asian-American.

Is Voo going to do a tribute thread? What are the qualifications for such a thread? Did Paradorn accomplish enough for his standards :D ?

06-11-2010, 05:21 PM
ลาก่อน Paradorn.

06-11-2010, 11:16 PM
Paradorn was a Top10, I guess he qualifies for a tribute thread

Cya Choripan, amazing to watch when he was on, a truly shotmaker. :yeah:

Michael Chang was Asian-American.

So was Agassi then.

I knew this was coming, but it's still a bit sad to hear. :awww:
I wish Paradorn the best of luck with his life after tennis. ;)

While it was a persistent wrist injury that had sidelined him, it was an awful motorcycle racing accident recently that broke both hands and severely injured a knee which dealt the coup de grace on one of tennis great ambassadors. Crap! :scared: That sounds terrible.

At last we're free from Pomnok's threads. "Do you think Srichaphan will come back to the top ten?"

He's been out for half a decade and finally decides to retire... Very timely...
