August 20th, 2012

Dinara Safina: De passo em passo… | blogdosmanos – siga @ ...Dinara Safina is one of the greatest tennis players of all time. Coming from Russia, Dinara had a hard time in her early years. Safina pushed on, and conquered her opponents as an amateur. She won many local tournaments, and became a star in her little town. After, winning most of her tournaments in her early years, it was time for Dinara to move to the professional level.

Once at the professional level, Dinara Safina was faced with many tough opponents. She would go on to struggle in her first few years of playing on the professional scene. Most people thought she was just over-hyped, or was, in fact, not even good at the sport of tennis. This fueled Dinara; it made her work harder at the sport. She would eventually go on to respect the game even more.

Dinara would struggle for a couple more years, before eventually blowing up the tennis world. Safina would go on to win many tennis championships. Her unrelenting work effort and her confidence behind the racquet proved to be stronger than anyone could have ever imagined. The critics that had bashed her in the beginning of her career had to, in fact, eat their words.

Safina would go on to win more championships and trophies in her long and glorious career. She is an inspiration to many young ladies in Russia and the United States as well. She taught people that even if things are looking gloom early on, that some hard work and dedication can get you through the rough times. Safina played many years at the professional level before finally “throwing in the towel” and retiring at a pretty young age.

Dinara Safina now just enjoys her retired life. She still is involved with the sport of tennis, and is still an avid fan. Her support to her home country has given many young Russian girls the opportunity to commit to the sport of tennis. In the end, the world is a better and brighter place because of Dinara Safina.

Dinara Safina Racquets - Babolat Aero Strom Tour | Professional Tennis ...I have played tennis actively my entire life. From grade school all the way through high school and college I played tennis every chance that I got. Even though I’m a bit older now and my joints ache and I’m not as quick as I used to play, I still love to get out on the court with my racquet.

Along with playing tennis, I have also watched professional tennis for as long as I can remember. I watched, and modelled myself on all of the female greats. I absolutley loved watching the Grand Slam events on television when I was growing up and still watch them to this day. Watching the athletic talent and skill displayed at an event like Wimbledon or the French Open simply blows my mind. I have loved and respected a number of tennis players, from Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova to Steffi Graff, Martina Hingis and Venus and Serena Williams. Read the rest of this entry »
