According to TennisReporters.net, the once-promising tennis career of Nicole Vaidisova is now over. The website has learned that the former 10 singles player has decided to retire and she will get married to longtime boyfriend Radek Stepanek.
Stepanek, who previously dated Martina Hingis, and Vaidisova have been together since the summer of 2007. Stepanek is 31, Vaidisova is 20 – cue the “ick” factor. The “Czech mates” have planned a July wedding.
It’s a little sad to see a girl with such a bright future at Nicole’s retiring at age 20, but she must feel this is the right move for her to be with Radek. And what can guys say about Stepanek?
Vaidisova was a two-time Grand Slam semifinalist at 2007 Australian Open and 2006 French Open. She also reached the quarterfinals twice at Wimbledon. She won six career WTA titles.
In her final event (she has turned down a Miami wildcard) she reached the second round in Memphis. She ranks No. 176 at the moment.
