Francesca Schiavone still cookin’


If this indeed is 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone’s final go-round, she’s not done yet.

The 37-year-old, who spends a lot of time in Florida, hasn’t played since the US Open even if, with her current ranking, she could well have played the Asian swing.


But she’s entered in the $80,000 ITF in Macon, GA in two weeks. Schiavone should be the top seed. She plans to play similar events the following week in Tyler, Texas and then in Waco, Texas.

Will that be it? Can some good end-of-year results convince Schiavone, at 37, to give it one more go?
