Pierce not ready to retire

Mary Pierce, one of WTA Tours top stars of the last two decades, says she isn't ready to hung up her raquet yet.

"I care about Roland Garros. If I could stand in center court for one match, that would already be a big victory,'' she said.

The two-time Grand Slam champion has been sidelined by a knee injuty since 2006. She ruptured a ligament in her left knee in a match against Vera Zvonareva. She hasn't competed professionally since.

"I don't feel it's the right moment (to announce my retirement),'' she told L'Equipe, adding that her left leg is weak but tests indicate her knee has recovered.
