Nadia Petrova has a baby girl

According to fellow Russian Anna Chakvetadze, longtime WTA Tour player Nadia Petrova is a mom, having just given birth to a baby girl.

No further details seem to be available yet.


Petrova, now 36, was a talented, technically sound all-round player who reached No. 3 in singles and No. 3 in doubles during a really strong era.

But she was dealt a double blow in recent years.

The first was the unexpected death of her mother in Dec. 2013. The second was injuries; Petrova had more than her fair share.

Her last match was in Charleston in 2014. She officially retired in Jan. 2017.
