(POST EDITED -NM)
Or can Dinara Safina sink lower than a 6-0, 6-0 loss to Kim Clijsters in the first round of the Aussie? Her loss marks a first for a former world no. 1 at a Major. In 2000, former world no. 1 Monica Seles lost to Martina Hingis by the same score at Miami. But as other former female greats have showed us, there’s farther to fall. We just wonder what bottom is for Dinara. | Bagels: Those that have been served on TSF

On the upside — for her, anyway — she starting to look a bit like a gigantic Tracy Austin.
I dont get the article that you have a link to. It says she is the only former world number 1 to lose 6-0 6-0???? but sharapova lost 0 – 0 to davenport and seles lost 0 – 0 to hingis!
I’m confused any1 can explain?
probably with respect to the slams
Good point, michael. I have edited the post to reflect such a fact. Though, when Sharapova lost to Davenport in ’05, she had not been ranked #1 yet.
I find this emblematic of all of women’s tennis.
dear lord i hope not … i was hoping a resurging safina would be a good storyline for 2011. she’s still got the weapons but WTF happened to her? wozniacki be warned!
