Myskina pregnant

The former world No.2 Anastasia Myskina is expecting a child. This means, that there will be no defenitive timetable for her comeback. With the unpredictability of Myskina's behaviour, we even might not see her back on the tennis courts ever again.The Russian was struggling the last two years with various injuries and lack of form. After a 1st round loss to Gisela Dulko in Auckland 2007 Myskina said she would end her career with immediate effect. She later tried to make a comeback, underlining she couldn't live without tennis. Her comeback at the French Open that year was a disaster as the Russian managed to win only one game against Meghann Shaughnessy. This was her last appearance at a Sony Ericsson WTA-Tour tournament.

Myskina is now 5 mounths pregnant and as it seems, she will be a raising her child alone. The news is Anastasia is no longer dating the Hockey player Konstantin Korneev. This is what she had to say:
“That topic is closed. I’ll just say that I am not getting married in the near future. I am a single person. I don’t know about the baby’s gender yet, and I haven’t decided yet where I will give birth—in Russia or abroad.”

Let's hope this is no career end for the former French Open winner and that she soon can start such an impressive comeback as Lindsay Davenport did...
