Don’t tell me when it’s time – Schiavone


She’s 36. She’s playing like a kid again. So don’t tell Francesca Schiavone when she should retire.

“No! Can you say to everybody to shut up and don’t break my b***s? … Roger (Federer) is 36 and nobody keeps saying ‘Oh, he’s 36, or Serena is 36 or Venus is 37,’ because they are top players,” Schiavone told the WTA Insider. “If I want to play and I am 100 in the world, what’s your problem? Do you want to enjoy? Come to watch me. If you don’t want to enjoy, go watch the 20-year-old.”
