Re: Is Safina done?
I also feel that marat's participation on the tour, even if he was average by then, motivated dinara to keep competing and going 100% on the tour. When he retired, her game really started to decline and even though she had physical issues, I think her motivation really took a dip. If Marat was still competing today, a part of me me believes that she would've tried everything to stay on the tour. He just seemed to have that effect on her.
