[quote user="shrapi"]Read in the Eurosport news that Monica Szeles plans her comeback with 34.[/quote]
I reacted to that news in Tennis Talk before I saw you'd started a thread here. Yes, this is where it belongs, so I'll repost it here:
Gimme a break. Mónika is supposed to come show Jelena & Ana how to play tennis, or urge them to change their citizenship? This is fast becoming absurd. Davenport is back simply because the US apparently can't produce any new talent, and the Three Witches of ESPN never stop reminding us that Capriati "never officially retired". It's not just the Yanks, of course. Mary Pierce keeps threatening to return. Hingis made more sense but you saw how well that worked out.
I don't say older players can't contend. But keep on this way and they'll be trying to pay Billie Jean and Navratilova to get back on the courts. lol Hey girls, there is a place for this. It's called "Seniors".

Damn right - Seles would wip the floor with the majority of the players out there still
Remember Navratilova was still very much a top player at 34...
