I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

No reasons why. I assume he just found it hard getting back to former levels?

Touch the sky - and touch it he did.

oh that's sad but I guess he couldn't face slogging it out at challenger level and this at least frees Colin to find a permanent new partner.  I'm sure he'll still be part of the tennis world in his role at Queens and as a comm.  Good that he's emphasising he is well as naturally that was my first fear.

Huge shame for British tennis but the writing was on the cards when he took the Queens director role. Best of luck to him in his future endeavours.

Meanwhile, Liam Broady (who recently won a $15k event) will take on Ed Corrie (who recently won a $15k+H event) in the Wrexham final this $15k event). Liam took out Dan Cox in a very close semi-final, edging it 6-3, 4-6, 7-6(0). Josh Milton was the other semi-finalist.

Liam is defending points so needs a win to crack the top 300 for the first time. Still only 20yo. Corrie is at a CH of #277 and will probably break the top 270, maybe the top 260 with a win.

And also a brilliant win for Wardy who will be on the brink of the top 120 after this week (if not higher).

Will miss Ross,s cheery handsome face on court. Met him at o2 last year. What a gentleman.

I thought when he took the role at Queens that he would retire soon.

Sad to see Ross retire, always enjoyed watching him play. I'm sure he's going to be very successful in his post-playing career - his first year at Queens seemed to go very well. Wishing him all the best for the future.

I felt so sad when I read that.  He's a really lovely, caring young man who's fought bravely through so much. 

oh that's sad but I guess he couldn't face slogging it out at challenger level and this at least frees Colin to find a permanent new partner.  I'm sure he'll still be part of the tennis world in his role at Queens and as a comm.  Good that he's emphasising he is well as naturally that was my first fear.
His health was my first thought too Ruthie, and I think you could be right about the reasons, especially given his age.  I feel sorry for Colin too because he was so supportive when Ross was ill, and I remember him saying something like he would be waiting for him to return as they had unfinished business to attend to. Frown   I don't think this was a sudden decision on Ross's part though and I'm sure Colin, and Andy, knew about well in advance, particularly as he might even have discussed it with them.

I thought when he took the role at Queens that he would retire soon.
I wondered as well if there was more to this than at first seemed.  Whatever he does decide to do now, whether its tennis-related or not, I wish him every success in the future.
