Excerpts --

Q: It was announced on the ABC broadcast that you have pulled out of Wimbledon and are considering retiring.

Pete: Yeah, I pulled out of Wimbledon. Retirement... I'm not quite there yet. I'm gonna see how I feel in the next few months. There could be a chance I'll play next year but my heart isn't in the game right now - it really isn't.

Q: When did you make the decision to pull out of Wimbledon?

Pete: Probably about 3 weeks ago in my mind. I start doing some work - working out, starting to practise a little. But after about the fourth day of practising, I felt my heart wasn't into it.

Q: Do you have a timeline for when you want to try to get back in or when you will make the ultimate decision

Pete: End of the year.
