Safina withdraws from Wimbledon
Only ten days ago, Dinara Safina's coach said of her, "...physically, she's perfect. She's got no pain...." Something changed. Today, the former world number 1 withdrew from Wimbledon, citing a return of her lower back pain. Her place in the draw has been taken by Melanie Oudin, who is now the 33rd seed. Lucky loser Stephanie Dubois has moved into the main draw.
