While her big brother Marat was busy getting punched, Dinara Safina looks like she's been taking off the pounds.
The Russian lady baller, who defeated Flavia Pennetta to give Russia and 1-0 lead over Italy at the Hopman Cup (Russia dismissed Italy 2-1, click here for results) arrived in Perth working a new slimmed down frame but still dressed in those old, dreaded pepto-colored adidas duds. Ugh.
Anyway, I'd been hearing about this new "slimmed down" Dinara and I was excited to see some images. It's definitely a noticeable change and she should def benefit from the newfound fitness in the coming season.
Will it help her nab a maiden Grand Slam? We'll see, but it certainly can't hurt.
