^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.
IT'S BEEN A LONG WAY MY FRIEND
