Anna Smashnova planing coming back to Israel

....in the end of this season.
In an interview with her, she said that she will leave Rome where she was in the past 5 years with her husband (now former husband).
She also said that she sufferd in Australia and that this trip wath one of her worst moments in her tennis career.
She still doesn't know what will happend in the end of this season and retirment is an option.she will continue playing if she'll stay in the top 50 but if she will going down in the ranking, she won't continue.
she had enough of traveling and prefer playing in close distance tournaments especially in clay which is her favourite surface.

I'm surprised she didn't retire after last year, but I guess she wants to play the new tournament in Israel.

Hopefully she can add some more titles to her career before she retires.

She often wins about two of the lower clay tier tournaments a year anyway!

That means she won't play Indian Wells or Key Biscayne?


Inspiration is for amateurs
