the news is official now; today's paper :

Tom Vanhoudt stopt met tennissen

Tom Vanhoudt bergt na een profcarrière van vijftien jaar de tennisracket op. Na een maandje reflectie nam Vanhoudt de beslissing, raakte maandag op het WTA-tornooi in Antwerpen bekend.

De 33-jarige Limburger was bovenal een dubbelspecialist. Zijn beste positie op de wereldranglijst in het dubbel was een 36ste plaats in september 2001. Vandaag de dag staat hij 86ste. In de enkelranking kwam hij niet hoger dan een 203de plaats (april 1996).

Op de ATP-Tour telt de geboren Diestenaar één dubbeltitel op zijn palmares. In augustus 1993 won hij met Filip Dewulf het tornooi in het Kroatische Umag (gravel). In het Challengercircuit boekte hij (vaak aan de zijde van Belgische toppers als Kristof Vliegen, Christophe Rochus of Dewulf) heel wat meer successen: 27 om precies te zijn, met 1997 als topjaar met maar liefst zeven Challengerzeges.

Van 1991 tot 1993 en 2000 tot 2002 verdedigde Vanhoudt ook de Belgische kleuren in de Davis Cup, telkens voor het dubbel. Van zijn negen duels won hij er vier. Vanhoudt verdiende in zijn profloopbaan, die in 1991 begon, 675.139 dollar (567.501 euro).

short translation : Tommie decided to end his carreer, they don't give a reason ... then some highlights of his carreer

it's really over :Dejected:

*wink wink*
great personality and all the things that happened...
i will miss arguments with him for life!

and at the party in Wrocław none of players, even from Belgium, or his doubles parters didn't hear he retired, Dick Norman said it was not official...

so I guess they asked him and that's what we read today... :Dejected:
