Sanchez was already arguing calls, her family and friends all around applauding faults by Daniela and being loud and annoying. She felt like she was being cheated purposefully when the over rules were fair, and worth over ruling. There was not one outlandish overule in the first set. Set was run of the mill. Lots of errors from Daniela and Sanchez, but Daniela prevailed simply as the better player. Though Daniela choked from 5-2 up she didn't really do anything and then woke up to take the set. From 5-2 to 7-5.
Second set started and Daniela was much better. Going for her shots. Sanchez disagreed with one call that was questionable and Sanchez acted like she had been cheated ALL match as opposed to on ONE call. Her fan and family and friends all were shouting an one guy near the baseline, the sole fan, was trying to show his opinion was the only one... He shouted "IT WAS SO OUT. A FOOT OUT" as if hus opinion mattered. Sanchez cursed at the umpire and was all around annoying. She got a language and conduct violation rightfully so.
Daniela stormed to a 5-1 lead and got a match point. Played it well and Sanchez hit a ball, that Daniela had an easy swing volley on but let go, a few inches out. Daniela was NOT having it. she would not play. she would not stop complaining for a solid 40 seconds. Her team even had to tell her "Daniela stop" and she was like "NO ITS OUT OH MY GOD." Sanchez's fans and family were shouting at Daniela and Sanchez "SHES MAD!" "HOWS IT FEEL" and "YEAH! YEAH!". The ump then quieted them and said "let's play". Daniela threw the two points away and argued, standing up, the whole changeover. She maybe sat for 10 seconds. shut her eyes, and went to return. Daniela played a brilliant first point and shouts "VAMOS CONYASOS" at her family and stormed with the victory and the rest of the crowd really cheering her on. They both shook the ump, who did a great job other than possibly two calls, hand. GOOD. OTOH Daniela and Sanchez had a meh handshake because Sanchez was a sore loser and I am sure STILL convinced there was a conspiracy against her.

Hey, Daniela is Mine. I was in the match, too! Where were you sitting?
I recorded the video of Daniela going NUTS at MP, but I think I will be able to upload it only next week.
I liked Dani's attitude, but if there was a stronger player on the other side of the court I dunno how the result would have been... Because Daniela's aggressive game is a bit gone and her movement is still the weakest part of her game, so it makes it easier for the other girls to outplay her. Hopefully it's just a matter of confidence.
I also got tickets for Thursday and I will keep buying them as long as she stays in the tournament. Oh well, at least until next Monday, the day I leave NYC. Hehehe
After following Dani since 2002, I finally got to see her live today. A memorable day and she was still nice to take a pic with me after the match.

wow I did not realize that so many TF users where at this match!
Tim_Danielafan6, I was the one in the zebra shirt. I remember you! Btw, I only gave you that weird look because I was surprised that someone else would be cheering for Dani. I was still at the match after the first set, I just moved to the other side so that it would be easier to get an autograph + a picture.
you guys covered pretty much everything. I have some short videos of the drama too. I'll upload them later.
Hantuchov, where you the guy that said "Dani I love you... so much"? I was upset that she initially went the opposite direction, but then I called out "Daniella please" and she came back. What a sweetheart! She signed autograph for everyone and took plenty of pics. I was lucky enough to get one with her.
and sorry if I annoyed any of you with my cheering, I was just really excited and pumped up
Oh and one more thing, that Sanchez girl is such a brat! Even if I wasn't a huge Dani fan I still wouldn't have cheered for Sanchez.
