Too tired probably, along with the low back pain. Just as well. She's had a good run so far. See you next tourny, Safina. Rest up.

well, it's the smart thing to do. No need to injure herself when she's having the best run of her career by playing too much with too little recovery time.

Does that mean we'll see a Jankovic/Kuznetsova final now? :rolls:

Probably a smart decision for Dinara but when a top seed resigns in the last minute, the tournament draw loses all the balance. It is not just for the girls in three remaining quarters. I wish they make a new draw in such situations.

Kremlin Cup and YEC are the main goals for Dinara for the rest of the season. She should stay fresh for them.

Smart move! She just did what Jelena is never smart enough to do - withdraw and save energy for the bigger events.

Jelena :rolls:

But she is young, let her play :lol:

Hopefully next year she slows down.

Smart in the current way.

If she commits to so many tournaments, she has to learn how to manage to play them all. In the following years withdrawing days before a tournament will have larger consequences. Now that she's actually winning things, she has to realize that she'll be at a tournament until the latter part of the week, and will either have to learn and gain stamina, like what Jankovic does, though with risk to her body, or commit to less tournaments which risks her ranking points
