MOSCOW, May 12 (UPI) -- Russian player Dinara Safina, once ranked No. 1, says she is taking an indefinite break from tennis to recover from chronic back pain.
"I don't know how long the break will be," she said. "I don't want to torture myself and my body any longer. I want to take as much time to recover, so I don't have any regrets at the end of my career."
