She's only 26. But stil 13 years in the top of the game. Perhaps she will make her comeback in a few years. But properbly not, she aimed for the Olympics, defeating the Chinese in their own home.

It will be a shame if this turns out to be true, however I still beleive she has a good chance of Winning if she competes in 2008, since the new wave of CHN players are not reaching the levels of their predeccessors yet (Although still two years to go), and Zhang Ning ageing, and XXF Nervous in big events.
She still has some of the best stroke play and deceptive techniques of any player (arguably man or woman).

Without Mia, women's badminton is even more boring. Look at the top 10, only Mia and Kaora are non-Chineses. Kaori was never able to threaten the Chinese women.

from badzine.fr today
Le scoop du mois
Badzine est le premier media à vous informer de la retraite internationale de Mia Audina. La joueuse Néerlandaise d’origine Indonésienne a décidé d’arrêter sa carrière brusquement, pour se consacrer à son mari et à une offre de travail dans le monde des diamants. Elle a annoncé ce matin même à ses partenaires d’entraînement sa décision de quitter le badminton international, immédiatement.
C’est une très grande championne qui raccroche donc les raquettes avec un palmarès dantesque, plusieurs médailles d’or européennes et un titre de vice championne olympique en 2004. C’est sans doute une bonne nouvelle pour les joueuses Chinoises qui voyaient sans doute en elle leur rivale principale.
C’est aussi une décision importante pour les championnats du Monde à venir, puisqu’elle n’y participera pas. Pour le badminton, c’est une perte car Mia est sans doute l’une des joueuses les plus impressionnantes et talentueuses de sa génération.
Bonne chance à elle dans sa nouvelle vie…

A great shame she could not hang on a little longer for the world championships as Xie has not been in great form, nor Zhang Ning.
No doubt her teamates have improved a lot since her arrival in holland, with a sterling run in the recent uber cup. We know of her battle with fitness over the recent years, hope she manages other ways to stay healthy.
