Dinara Safina

Where is she now? Has she officially retired from tennis?
I can't believe how her career turned out
A sad example of a promising player destroyed by injury
Anyone know what she's doing now?

Re: Dinara Safina

She worked as a hitting partner for Donskoy! Maybe she begins to slowly train

Re: Dinara Safina

I dont think her back injuries will let her play again.
Even if she gets healthy enough to practice again, its probably dangerous to her back to try to play the tour at a high level again.
You need your back your whole life.

That injury was so unfortunate because she was #1 and was in 3 slam finals & 2 semis in just over a year. She was a regular fixture in week 2 of majors, especially at the French Open, which then was won by Schiavone and Li when she couldnt play

Re: Dinara Safina



Her pre-injury groundstrokes actually were amazing, but perhaps too hard on the body .

Hoping for a miracle that will allow her to give the tour another crack .

Re: Dinara Safina

Dinara says she doesn't consider herself retired - yet.

This is a great article, pretty much answers all questions.

Re: Dinara Safina

"She does not watch much tennis on television and is in touch with just a few players such as current No. 1 Victoria Azarenka, Agnes Szavay. Jelena Dokic and Gisela Dulko."

Didn't know Jelena and Dinara were friends.

Thanks.

Good for her that her normal life is not affected by the back. Although she doesn´t want to close the door on tennis, you get the sense that her back cannot tolerate professional sports and that she has moved on with her life going to university. For her tennis fix she can just stay in touch with Vika, who shares a lot of similarities.

Re: Dinara Safina

thanks for the link.
this bit makes me think that we won't see her back:

"I have [the pain] so deep in my mind it overcomes my desire," she said of the lingering memory. "Whenever I think like, 'Oh maybe (I'll try to come back), then I feel like the pain is so deep inside, I get afraid. This is the feeling I have, I cannot go through it right now."

Re: Dinara Safina

I don't think she's done. I think she is setting herself for a good life out of tennis and once she has done that and her body is well rested she will come back at age 28 and win the French Open aged 30
Here's dreaming anyway
Lovely article. Dinara comes across as such a down to earth cool girl.
