Color me sad today.
Word comes from TENNIS.com's ticker that Juan Carlos Ferrero is contemplating retirement at the end of this season:
Juan Carlos Ferrero says Marat Safin's impending retirement has prompted him to think along the same lines. "The motivation is not there after 11 years," said Ferrero, adding that he will make a decision at the end of the year about whether to play for another season.
The former French Open champ, currently ranked No. 115, returned to the tour in Casablanca this week after an abductor problem kept him sidelined during March. Ferrero is 29, the same age as Safin.
Ferrero said that when he does retire, he would like to help train young players and become more involved in his hometown tournament in Valencia, as well as the hotel he owns there.
Damn you Marat - first you break our hearts with your retirement talk and now you've got another cutie thinking along the same lines.
My weekend's ruined before it even began. Happy Friday. Blech.
