April 10, 2009 · Print This Article
The struggling former Roland Garros champion has barely been seen on the tour this year and especially so later on in the week for any events. The question always comes up for players sooner or later. Below is taken from tennis.com ticker.
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.
