If I had to describe Nicole Vaidisova‘s tennis career in a sentence, it would it be a career that went up as quick as it went down. When the Czech retired in 2010, she was in an emotional mess. However, her relationship with Radek Stepanek was blossoming, whom she married later.
Some have suggested the relationship caused her hasty downfall. The former World No.7 refuted those suggestions and said that she was no longer interested in tennis. Whatever the reason was, I would personally like to see her make a return on court. Her solid all-round game would definitely trouble the top players today. She is only 23 years-old, which would make a Kim Clijsters style comeback plausible if she is willing to apply herself.
