Guess Dinara's ranking after the Wimby SF points come off.

My guess: #47.

If her back allows her to play a full schedule, she will be fine.

It's terrible to suffer from a back injury. That can be debilitating. I just hope she doesn't have any lasting back pain.

Dinara could still go deep here, you never know. I just hope she is healthy, her ranking will take care of itself if she can play a full schedule as others have noted.

She really can't. She's struggling to beat the simplest of players. Date Krumm on clay should be an easy assignment.

Exactly. Kimiko has hit over 50 UEs and Safina still cant beat her, at least not yet. When she faces a player who isnt playing bad, shes gonna lose.

Yeah Kimiko who reach SF in RG is simple.
I mean that's a low stab , they are both capable of playing great tennis.But just not today

Safina is actually really lean. I'm not sure why her abdomen pushes out like that - could be posture problem, where your organs sit further in front than it should be.

Sweetie, that was 15 years ago. I don't think we can apply that result to today's game.

She got back into top 100 and won a title So I don't even need to say much more.
She's playing Injured aswell ... Couldn't bend etc
this just tells how bad Dinara is :spit:

Safina hit 1 winner in set 2 and 1 in set 3 - and that's against a player who can't move at all. Yet Dinara is come on'ing like she won the whole tournament each time Kimiko commits an error. Really pathetic behaviour from Dinara here.

How can anyone take pleasure in a struggle a player who has just come back from a bad injury is going through? :awww:

Safina has been hitting with as much power as a 7 year-old :o She's nothing like she used to be at the moment

Dinara came back too early. She wanted to play on red clay.
She needs more time, after this tournament, she'll have time.

You're a lousy guesser (do you know *anything* about rankings?) and this is a cruel thread. The girl has been struggling with injury and confidence...and this is a laughing matter?

Do you also kick small animals that have been hit by cars?

I certainly wish her the best in overcoming all her challenges and regaining her form.

I suppose if Dinara's problems were only to do with the back injury, however, she would not have fired Krajan, who coached her so successfully last spring...

Safina was playing like a mediocre pusher well before her injury.
She wasn't winning ugly, she was winning in a fugly way.

So no surprises in these loses.

Agreed. It seems like now the pushing has just been exaggerated to the max.

Here’s what Dinara Safina had to say after her defeat: “First I thought I was doing pretty good, but then I got tight and I lost the motion. I started to basically get tight and the serve started to make more double faults. Of course you want to win, and especially I saw her, she's cramping. Then I just started to look at her instead of thinking what I was doing until 4‑1. And then I just… I was more thinking about her than about myself, what I had to do. I lost the momentum.”
She has also recently split with coach, long-time mentor and good mate of brother Marat Zeljko Krajan, and had only good things to say about the departed “Z”: “After Madrid I took a decision to stop. Definitely he did the best job than everybody could make with me. He brought me to No. 1 in the world. I mean, not him: together we came together to No. 1. But I decided that I wanted to stop, and that's it. I won't say anything. I don't want to comment anything else.”
Her final comments? “I will have to swallow this loss and keep on moving. I was in worse situations, and I mean, that's life. After rain, always sun comes. I will do my best.”
