Dec 2010: Sharon Wee to retire ...
Thank you SQUASH!
At the age of 33 Malaysia's Sharon Wee has called time on her playing career ...
Thank you… Thank you for the great journey that makes me the person I am today.

It is hard to say goodbye to competitive squash that has been part of me for the last 20 years. Squash has also brought me back to live again after experiencing a bad accident that almost took my life away.

However, the wear and tear of the cartilage of my both knees since few years ago and playing in pain is not fun anymore. Lately, having the feeling to play squash just for fun, does not fit in, in the competitive environment in professional squash. Furthermore, I am ready to retire because I know the younger players are ready to bring success to Malaysian squash.

Sports generally and SQUASH specifically have been my life and it will still be after I retire. I may retire as a professional squash player, but it is only a start to a new career. I am excited yet nervous to be out of my comfort zone. I believe life must go on and with all the good traits that I have learned from playing squash, I will be successful in my new career and as a person.

Thank you to my family and friends for their support and for believing in me. Thank you to all the people around me that have helped me along the way in this great journey. Thank you to those who like me. And those who do not like me, thank you too because you have made me understand and accept, that is okay and that is life.

Thank you to MSN, ISN, SRAM, MSRA, the media, my sponsors, coaches, teammates and my fans for making my journey as a squash player the one to remember forever.

Thank you all and I feel very blessed.
