Childhood Photos: Dinara Safina, new World Number 1

Dinara Safina of Russia officially took over the top ranking on the WTA Tour on Monday. Dinara’s achievement makes her and older sibling Marat Safin the only brother-sister duo to have been No. 1 in professional tennis. To honor her success. I am posting some of her childhood photos. Those pictures remind us how hard it is to get where she is now. It takes years and years of hard work, dedication, discipline, and belief in yourself. Congratulations!.
