"...Seeing [Andy Roddick and Kim Clijsters] both retire at the US Open [was] very moving. These two talented players have had some incredible moments on the court, as well as off the court thanks to their likeability and generosity.
The Babolat team wishes them the best in their future endeavors. We imagine that our history together will continue, and that we will meet again to collaborate on projects that will further advance this magnificent sport of tennis.”
-- Eric Babolat, CEO of Babolat.
Clisters and Roddick joined Team Babolat in 1999 and 2000 respectively.
