A Plead To Anna Kournikova
Anna Kournikova, you are an amazingly talented tennis player. This is why I plead you to please return to competitive tennis. I, as well as many people in the tennis world, miss you and are extremely sad and disappointed to see you give the sport up. It is a shame to see your talents go to waste.
We all realize that you have endured many injuries over the years and that you cite your back injury as the reason behind your semi-retirement. The reason behind your injuries, though, has been over-training. You have played tennis all your life and it is not necessary to train six to seven hours a day, like you did when you were young. This causes more injuries and your back to flare up.
Anna, if you were to train two to three hours a day and a couple of hours at the gym for four to six months, and get a coach, I am sure that in a year's time you would be in the top 25. With consistent play and results I am sure that you could get back in the top 10 and threaten top players day in and day out.
Anna, all your fans love and support you, and we just want you to do what makes you happy. We don't want you to have regrets later on. You are still so young and so talented. PLEASE COME BACK.
