Re: Barker Twins

Seems like the article is unclear. they retired b/c they'd be forced to retire in a few years anyway.... so if the rules get changed will tehy unretire? From what people at Rice who knew them had said, they weren't really planning to really put everything into tennis anyway...

I don't know if anyone cares, but it's now official that the Barkers were given a WC into Wimbledon!!

Re: Barker Twins

my best friend knows a friend of theirs, she asked if they were still competing, this is what he told her:

"The Barkers tried quitting tennis but couldn't and are currently toiling on the doubles tour I think. At the least they should have a wildcard to Wimbledon next summer, but I haven't heard much from them. Rich was at Rondelet I think though."

(Rondelet is a formal held in the Spring - it would've been a couple weeks ago). I don't know what "couldn't quit" means... but wow, very cool about Wimby! Think the Brits are dying for a doubles team?

They won their doubles SF in Mobile, Alabama but lost in the Final.

They were in the semifinals of the USA F8 Futures today. Haven't found a result yet, but I just love that they are picking up these points each week.

it'd be GREAT to see them embraced by the GBR DC team. You guys could use a doubles team LOL! But I think they have a long way to go before they'd be considered for that...
