Re: Birmingham, Aegon Classic: grass season has officially started.

She's playing doubles with Su-Wei. I guess they are probably going to be a better team than Dani/AMG.


DATE-KRUMM/PARRA SANTONJA
AOYAMA/MOULTON-LEVY
JURAK/TANASUGARN
(4)HANTUCHOVA/HSIEH



She had a lot of time to get ready for her grass season. Hopefully she will start strong here.

The thing is, about the one that got away, if he was meant to be in your life, then he would’ve found his way back to you.
So, you moved on; you chose a different road. Good. Keep your eyes on that.
If you’re always looking in the rear-view mirror, you’re going to miss the turn you need to make in the road ahead of you.
And believe me, there’s always plenty of road ahead of you. Focus on that.

Re: Birmingham, Aegon Classic: grass season has officially started.

Winnable against Casey, and then again against Robson. But something being winnable has never really made that much of a difference... Anyway, fingers crossed

Re: Birmingham, Aegon Classic: grass season has officially started.

Grass is probably the worst surface to play Robson on, but given recent results if she can get past Casey I'll be reasonably happy.

I'm here watching, she's playing quite well! Casey is feeding Dani the balls she likes.

Re: Birmingham, Aegon Classic: grass season has officially started.

Dani won 6-1 and 7-6(1) !

I've only watched the end of the match, she played well and she really stepped it up in the last game + tie-break!

Let's hope for a good match against Laura!
- She leads H2H 2-0 : beat her in straight sets earlier this year and also beat her on grass before (SW 2009)
- She played a lefty in the first round too.

She can do it!

The thing is, about the one that got away, if he was meant to be in your life, then he would’ve found his way back to you.
So, you moved on; you chose a different road. Good. Keep your eyes on that.

Robson is a different kettle of fish, especially on grass. I hope she steps it up.

Re: Birmingham, Aegon Classic: grass season has officially started.

Great 1st set. But her body language on 2nd was horrible. It should have been 1 & 3. Daniela lost her focused on 2nd set and that's why it went to tie-break.
I think if she's focused, she can beat Laura handily.

Re: Birmingham, Aegon Classic: grass season has officially started.

63 31 to Dani so far... Can only watch live scores though

She's hit four aces so far though, not bad, and good win percentages on first and second serves. C'mon Daniela!!
