According to this French article, the continuation of Tatiana Golovin’s tennis career is seriously under question. Apparently, the 20-year-old has some blood disease which causes the chronic pain in her back.
What a disappointment. Golovin won her first WTA titles (Amelia Island and Portoroz) in 2007, and the following year we’re already discussing her retirement. Oh, too bad.
Another sad fact is that in February the French tennis player was ranked 12th, but has slipped to No. 249 by the end of the 2008 season.
Golovin played her possibly last competitive tennis match in the first round of Berlin back in May, when she fell to Dane Caroline Wozniacki.
