Re: US OPEN 2013 New thread new fortune..

I thought that racquet gave her more control
Anyway I hado to leave after Dani levelled the match at 5-5 in the second..I hope to find the rest somewhere or highlights of the third.
Dani what an effort, the match of the year for her in term of fight and importance. SO very well done

I'd say the BHam vs Fran was equally good in drama, way better quality, just not as important.

Im so happy with this win!!..I cant follow the game coz I need to sleep but I know it will be a tight match just like the others said. I think she was really determined to win the match but there were some flops as we know Dani..but R4 in a grandslam?!!.when was the last time she was in the 2nd week of a grandslam?..the crowd will be against her again playing Riske..

Yeah i agree quality wise, but she didn't save mps and, although she won the tournament, this is a second week of a slam, something she missed in years.

Re: US OPEN 2013 New thread new fortune..

Don't really see the problem with the racket,as she has always hit with incredibly low net clearance. Movement seems to be the the clear problem,when she actually bothered to move her feet and rally,she was a class apart.

Re: US OPEN 2013 New thread new fortune..

^She needs a raquest and better strings. That's a fact.

Watching her against Riske in Birmingham and the Riske/Kvitova match on YouTube, I'd say it's all depends which Daniela will show up tomorrow. If she's way too passive, there is no chance. If you see 1st set and half of 3rd set in Birmingham, you'll see how passive Daniela was. But when she was on (2nd set and 3rd set - 1st part), she was the better player.

This is hardcourt and Riske didn't do anything special against Petra. Not huge serve or FH, just a good BH DTL. So, Daniela definitely needs to raise her game, FH, BH DTL , serve and on court attitude/FOCUS. The match is hers.

Re: US OPEN 2013 New thread new fortune..

Yea, yea! Finishing my duties earlier to have the chance and watch this match. Advancing into QF will make her feel good and maybe add some motivation on mental side, just to continue on a normal level!

Oh well! At first I never thought that in my last day in NYC I would be still going to the US Open to watch Daniela play. Especially after the so-so year she's had and after the not so convincing hard court season.

But here I am... Feeling like Daniela's luck charm! LOL

I was sure that Glushko would be no pushover, and I quite expect the same for today's match. But I still believe that the outcome depends on Daniela's performance.

Hoping that she's having a nice morning and is ready for the challenge. I will keep supporting you, Dani, no matter what!

Let's keep it going !!!!

This younger guy is only a hitting partner, I believe. Eduardo is not in NYC at all. I watched Daniela practising last Saturday on court 11 and she does have a new coach. He is the guy on the leftest of the last picture she posted on FB yesrerday. He was giving her lots of advices about her technique during that practise session.

I've put 10€ on Riske when she was at 1,80.
Now she is under 1,60 and Dani 2,30.
So Alison is the favourite for bookmakers...

But this is just for a small consolation prize. Make me lose that money Dani, win that one please it's THE draw of your life, fight on every point from the first one, like you've done on the 4 mp's.

That's Sven Groeneveld,of the Adidas Development programme. I fear Eduardo might have been given the chop-it doesn't really make much sense to for him to be with Daniela throughout the US Open series,but to miss the Grand Slam.

Re: US OPEN 2013 New thread new fortune..

What a fantastic comeback from 3-6 2-5 down, Daniela !

And she saved 4 MPs in 3rd set too. Just amazing. What a fight from Daniela

I think her fans deserve a medal for surviving this crazy drama match

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

I can't say I'm disappointed. Aside from her poor results this year, whenever she calls him on court during WTA matches I never agree with his advice and he never really helps her turn it around if she's behind.
