Batkovic announces retirement after this season

JCU Townsville Fire captain Suzy Batkovic has today announced the 2018/19 Chemist Warehouse WNBL season will be her 17th and final in the competition.

Over the past two decades, Batkovic has established herself as one of the WNBL's greatest ever players, re-writing the record books en route to unprecedented individual success.
Within striking distance of moving past Rachael Sporn as the league’s all-time leading scorer, the 37-year-old remains at the peak of her powers after guiding the Fire to the 2017/18 title in January - her third with the club and fifth overall – and banking her sixth WNBL MVP in seven seasons.

Remarkably, the legendary Lauren Jackson remains her closest rival in this category with four WNBL MVPs in her own right.

To round out a spectacular 2017/18, Batkovic was also named the Rachael Sporn Medallist as the Grand Final MVP after waging an all-out war with Liz Cambage to deliver the Fire their latest crown.

Yep, it's not like she went to every camp, the Oceania qualifiers, the European Tour and the Rio test event. Oh wait, she did do all that and was still left out...

Eh, she wasn't 100% committed all the time though. She was never committed to Worlds, just Olympics. That’s only half of the time.

At the same time, Taylor skipped camps and tours to sit in Russia watching games in the stands so lack of total committeemen wasn’t that well thought out of an excuse.
