Svetlana Kuznetsova is already 32, but she continues to be among tennis elite and according to her compatriot Marat Safin, the 2004 US Open and 2009 French Open champion can be great in Majors again. Safin, a former world no.
1, told WTA Tennis: 'Kuznetsova is still doing really well. She's a really good athlete and a really, really great tennis player. And she's also an amazing competitor. She is still playing great tennis and I'm sure she is going to have the opportunities to win more Grand Slams in the future.
She should push more and then I think she can do it. I really hope she can do it.' Safin also spoke on a high note about another compatriot, Maria Sharapova, who is back in the top-100 of the WTA singles rankings this week after slowly making her way back from the 15-month ban for using Meldonium.
'She is young and I'm sure she will have opportunities in the future,' Safin said. ALSO READ: WTA RANKINGS 09-10-2017: Halep is new No.
