Is 2008 Tommy's last year?

Do you guys think he will retire at the end of 2008? It seems a possibility to me, because of all of the injuries, his age and the Olympics. I definitely think that 2008 will be Tommy's last chance to win a Grand Slam, or win any other big titles. :sad:

But I would love to be proved wrong. :)

What do you guys think?

I hope, that 2008 will not the last year in Tommy`s career...

He said lately (during the DC) he wants to play 3-4 more years and his goal still is to win a big title.

Ich will noch drei, vier Jahre auf höchstem Niveau spielen. Und es ist nach wie vor mein Ziel, ein Grand-Slam-Turnier zu gewinnen.
(...)
Ich darf jetzt nicht aufgeben, muss versuchen, mich fit zu halten und mir die Chance auf den großen Titel zu geben. Vielleicht kommt irgendwann mal das Glück dazu. Wer weiß, was das Schicksal noch für mich bereit hält. Ich bin zwar jetzt der Älteste da oben in den Top Ten, aber so alt dann auch wieder nicht.

It's very possible but he can't retire in 2008 :crying2: Can't be the end of his career yet. He still has many goals like to win a grand slam, be number 1, and win the Masters Cup! Hope he will play more 4 years indeed :D I'd like to see more of Tommy and his tennis as well :drool::drool::inlove::hearts:

He should retire in 2010.

I would love to see Tommy play until the end of 2011 (that's four years...) but I have a feeling that if Tommy doesn't have a good 2008, injury and performance wise, he might call it quits...

But of course I would love to see him compete for four more years. :D

If he said he will play more 3, 4 years he will retire in 2011 :sad:

Nooooooo! Stop to say that! He'll have a good 2008! He had a good 2007, why not 2008? He almost got a place in Shanghai, he was so close....:o :rolleyes:

Well a piece of information that did come out in at least one of those Davis Cup Tie stories was the statement that Tommy had said this year was going to be his last year playing Davis Cup. How true that is I don't know :unsure:

Haas has signed a three-year endorsement deal as a new spokesman for K-Swiss and will wear K-Swiss clothes and apparel on court starting in January.

3 years contract... I guess this stops the rumors

I think because a company like K-Swiss would give Tommy more say in what his tennis outfits look like. Now if he can just get that shoulder well so he can play again

K-Swiss? :o

But yeah good news I guess that he's likely play at least until the end of the 2010 season.

I don't know how much longer that shoulder can hold up :unsure: Tommy always seems to make it sound like that shoulder is no big deal, but it is :sad:
