Obziler to retire tomorrow

Tzipora Obziler, known better as Tzipi, will retire from professional tennis tomorrow. Obziler, who is 36, was a long-time member of the Israeli Fed Cup team. Her highest Sony Ericsson WTA Tour ranking was 75. Obziler is expected to become either a tennis coach or administrator of some type.

As a consequence of the "No lesbians here" approach to professional tennis, Obziler has repeatedly been omitted from publicity about mothers on the tour. She and her partner have a daughter.
