Re: Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship

Won 6-2, 6-2.
Decent play from Dani but she failed to serve out both sets. Should have been a 6-1, 6-1 win.
Hope she gets the Q vs Q spot in the draw!

Re: Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship

Amazing easy win! I guess it was the 2nd best of the season!
CSN wasn't playing well, but kudos to Dani for not making a mess out of it.

Now let's hope she gets a good placement in the draw. If she gets the Q vs Q spot, I just hope she avoids Kuznetsova.

Re: Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship

I'd the chance to see this on the net

Well done to Daniela. 1st Q Draw in 10+ years and she made it. Lucky not to face Halep and having a day off before metting Carla. It's a good job beating CSN 2 and 2.

Carlitos made too many errors with Dani trying to stay into rallies. On 1st set, her serve and the way she choose to serve was almost amateur. Very bad ball toss. She changed that on 2nd serve and did great untill she rechanged on *5-1 just to got broken.

I think the question in Dubai was if she can qualify which is not mentally the best thing (for her). She did it. Anyhting additional (win) is much more welcomed!

Re: Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship

I hope she surprises us this week. C'mon, Daniela! Do not give up!
Facing a Top 10 player, I think she'll play in one of the main courts, which means that we'll be able to follow her. =)

Oh boo hoo Even if Kvitty makes 30 DFs, I still can't see Dani winning this one.

Oh God no. I still have nightmares about that first set in Sydney last year.

Re: Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship

Daniela is Petra's b*tch! No offense! Not a big deal here

I want to see her entering a one of the three clay MM next week. Would be nice!

Re: Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship

Yah I expect a loss unless Kvitova plays like crap, it's just a terrible matchup for her sort of like Davenport

Hantuchova Dokic
Petkovic Li Clijsters Jankovic Lisicki
Kvitova Wawrinka Gasquet Nalbandian

Re: Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship

Even if Kvitty plays like a crap, she will be always in position to beat Daniela. It's a bad matchup ^^.
Few games won't be bad, specially testing her serve and trying to improve it.

Re: Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship

1-1, held her opening serve game and got to deuce on Kvitova's, which is probably about as well as she's ever started in this matchup.
