Henin and Sorenstam Retiring

Tennis star Justine Henin and golf star Annika Sorenstam both recently announced their retirements. The story was covered today on National Public Radio's Morning Edition, with the commentary that although the sports of tennis and golf will miss these two athletes, the advent and success of Title IX has ensured that there is no dearth of exceptional women athletes coming up through the ranks in these two sports (or a host of other sports, I would add).
