Will Dinara Safina become a top player again?

After the defeat in Paris, she's out of the top 10 now. If her bad form continues, she might not be able to defend Wimbledon SF points and fall even further down in the rankings. Do you think she can bounce back and be the player she used to be?

"Might not" defend her Wimbly SF pts? I will bet you my left leg she won't.

Re: Will Dinara Safina become a top player again?

again? for me she never was

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

I hope not. She made a mess in her time.

Re: Will Dinara Safina become a top player again?

She's almost definitely missed her window for a slam win (truly wasted it with RG 09 and to a certain extent, 08 as well).
I'm almost positive she'll find her way back into the top 10, whether she can ascend back to the actual top is unclear at this point.

Re: Will Dinara Safina become a top player again?

There is no option for possibly winning a Slam without dominating the tour.

AS for the question asked, I cannot see why not (health problems permitting). IMO Dinara's problem is health, confidence and match practice. If health is ok again, it is (imo) only a matter of time before she'll play her best tennis again.

Re: Will Dinara Safina become a top player again?

In my humble opinion she needs to take some time off, get the back fully healed and then comeback. I think she came back way to soon, and if the back heals and she can play like she did in 2008/2009 clay season (not including the RG finals of course) then i think she could possibily win Roland Garros one day.

Re: Will Dinara Safina become a top player again?

where's the "she won't dominate the tour but will have a chance of win a slam?" chance?


anw Anna C. is not done, she will be back trust me

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Nope.

- And I'll say this again despite the fact that some DUMB ASS poster around here (you know who you are) decided to bad rep me and proceeded to compared Dinara to Serena of 2005 (who, incidentally had SEVEN SLAMS by then) smh

...She's done.
