Re: What is Galina Fokina's exact story?
I've been wondering about Fokina's situation (ie, why she only plays in Egypt) since I first came across her name.
This thread provides some explanations. Still, it's a mystery why she would have retired five years ago, as she's currently 25 years old. That means she retired when she was only 20 years old!
Also, she clearly enjoys tennis and is top 300 material, at least, so why doesn't she play bigger tournaments ($25K), for example in Turkey, the Gulf or Morocco (if she doesn't like to travel far)?
