Poor Sanowa. Maybe she should take longer break and try again in the future if she feels the fire. She will not play well if she doesn't have any drive.

I don't think it's anything to do with hunger and drive. Her back pain looks absolutely crippling, it was horrible watching her play earlier on this year - she had ballooned in weight and couldn't even serve she looked in so much pain.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

I think it has more to do with her chronic back problems instead of motivation/drive issues.

Dinara is not coming back.......so if you are a fan of tall, blonde, lumbering, slavic, female tennis players, you better put your hopes into Maria, or pray that Nicole actually makes a comeback.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

Always sucks when a player is forced out of the game against their will

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

I thought Safina retired for good? If she's saying "I don't now if I'll be playing at all...", at least it leaves the door open for a comeback. Though from the sounds of the injury she has, this does seem unlikely.

She denied that she retired for good.

If she ever comes back she would probably barely be a top 100 player. Physically she would never be 100% again even if she somewhat recovers, and once you lose all your career momentum you had built up past 25 it is too much to get back unless you are a supreme talent.
