She is the new world’s No.1 tennis player announced by the WTA Tour last Monday. Dinara Safina is from Russia replaced Serena Williams in the No.1 spot. Her brother Marat Safin was a former No.1 in 2000 making them the first brother and sister team to be the No.1 in professional tennis. Safina has earned the no. 1 spot without winning any grand slam yet but have twice reached a major final; the last was at the Austalian Open.
I took this picture of her when we went to see the U.S. Open last year. We will be there again this year.
