Czech Nicole Vaidisova was once a top WTA player with an even brighter future projected, but she left the sport almost four years ago, at the young age of 20, and that retirement and loss of love for tennis somehow coincided with her relationship and subsequent marriage to colleague Radek Stepanek. When we learned about the divorce proceedings of the tennis couple and Stepanek's swift involvement with yet another WTA player Petra Kvitova, rumors started swirling right away that Vaidisova, still only 24, was contemplating a comeback. However, Tennis.com is now announcing that there are no such plans in Vaidisova's head and she doesn't even own a racquet!
