Speaking in 2019, she said she had no plans to retire in the near future, and that as one of the most experienced players in the Great Britain squad she feels she has a responsibility to set an example. "The hunger is still there. Physically, I feel like I'm in the best shape I've been in for a while. The body's holding up pretty well which, after all these years, is pretty good going. I've always prided myself on setting the standard. Now, it's changed a bit because you realise there is more on you to do so at all times as a senior member." (independent.co.uk, 01 Nov 2019)
