Unfortunately Dinara Safina has abandond tennis forever. Dinara has been suffering from a long term back injury and unfortunately she has been unable to overcome it.

Sadly Dinara was planning on playing the French Open and even tweeted about it only a few days ago.

Dinara you are going to be sorely missed!

She said: “I don’t know how long my time out is going to last. I don’t want to torture myself and my body anymore.

“I’m just tired of constant questions from my coach in training, ‘How is your back? Can you do this exercise?’.”

 

Safina added: ” I’m just tired of fighting with myself. At the moment I can’t do anything tennis-wise. When I can do certain moves without feeling lots of pain, then I would consider resuming my training.

“Right now I don’t care when I might return – this summer during the American hardcourt series, towards the end of the season or next year.

“I’ll take as much time as I need.”
