Red face Describe What You Felt the First Time You Saw Her

We Chinese people feel that an unexplainable force makes us feel about people the way we do. Like you and your best friend, you and favorite movie stars, you and your wife, you and your enemies. (I'm sure you get the point) These people have a special meaning to you because of 緣 (yuan), the force that I was talking about. You either have it with someone or you don't. And being cocktail partiers and admiring the same player is more than just chance. It definitely means that we have yuan. It could involve some puzzling cosmic force............

So let me stop all this bullshit. What did you see in Daniela that you love so much?

I'll post later, since these deep questions tend to require time for reflection and careful consideration. I'm bullshiting again! Damn! I bullshit alot!

"I don't like winning as much as I hate losing"


And for us Cocktailers
"When I read about the evils of drinking, I quit reading"


And for those who don't like golf
Sex and golf are the two things you can enjoy even if you're not good at them.

There are of course, two points to answer here - the first time I saw her on TV and the first time I saw her in real life.

On TV - all I remember seeing was a lovely long pair of legs striding across my screen, and I remember thinking WOW!! Following that, I had to do some internet searches to find some pictures to put a face to the legs - check out the 'First picture of Daniela' thread. I thought WOW!WOW!

The first time I saw her in real I've spoken about many times here before so forgive the repetition, but as you're new here. I saw her in an exhibition match against Venus in Copenhagen last December. I walked into the arena expecting it to be empty, but there she was, right there in front of me, and I just stood there, jaw dropped to the ground, and I thought WOW!WOW!WOW! She really is the most stunningly beautiful young lady on this planet - ever. She is as close to perfection as I could ever dream of.

And she's great at tennis too!

That is a totally understandable reaction. Who doesn't like Daniela?

I see that you are excited and all but what really attracted you? Like when your jaws dropped, what was going through your mind except wow and wow?

Can you be just a little bit more specific pleeeeeaaasssssse

And about 'who doesn't like Daniela', those people at the general messages board are really rude and offensive to Daniela.

I heard about her before I saw her.

I was told of this young newcomer with amazing strokes, and was interested in seeing her. She was probably 17 at the time. I can't actually remember if it was on TV or not the first time I saw her,, but all I could think about was her backhand. It's friggin' PERFECT in execution. The most fluid and elegant in the game IMHO.

okay... i dont remember seeing Daniela on TV when i first started to like her.. first tieme i actually saaw her was at the 2001 Rogers Cup... [and you guys kno the story]-- Daniela was playing against Jen Cap and i didnt realli care who Jen was playing against at first because Daniela was unknown at that time... but i remember thinking: wow what a great pair of legs! i wish i had them! then i was like.. wow shes realli good.. considering the fact that she almost beat capriati...!!!
after that... everything is a blur... i never realli knew how i got to the CP here or how i became a Daniela-addict... or anything else...... its been a flash...

but considering the fact that i didnt 'realli' get to see Daniela at Rogers Cup... Roland GArros was the point where i condsider the fact that i REALLI saw her.
and i was outside court #16 waiting to get a seat and i went on my tippy-toes... trying to get a glance... and there she was... Daniela Hantuchova... jus standing there in her ready position, back towards me. and i was like: WOW... i finally get to see Daniela in action..!!!. and it was absolutely amazing! i dont think anyone of us could describe how we felt at that moment in time... because realli words cant describe the excitement and happiness... i just watched the whole entire match in silence... in awe.

was it jus me guys... or did when we see Daniela live she was glowing or something??????

I see we found a real new cocktailer here paycheck
You dislike the brute at the GM and you can't stop bullshitting The typical characteristics of a Cocktailer


The first time I saw her was at AO this year (I know, a little bit late... ) And the thing that really stunned me was her beautiful and cuuuute face - especially her eyes and nose It was a press conference and she was replying to the questions in her kind and coyly way so you really wanted to hug her to give her some confidence It was only later on when I realised those looong legs and of course her great tennis skills in her match against venus. And after the match she looked so disappointed that you wanted give her another hug right away to cheer her up

Some weeks later I I came across the CP and that's it: I'm addicted End of the story

Daniela Hantuchova!" (IW2002)

i think, that more important than first look is
the first time you realize you are IN (terested...)

i remember it was after fed cup...
i was watching her (just TV,but screams,badlanguage on her opposites) and after that few matches (1 loss other won) i was really proud of her, like THIS GIRL IS RRREEEEAAALLLYYY GOOD, like OH MY GOD SHE HAS IT ALL.... i have some articles from our papers, and my neverending crazy fanship begans

after that...sth happend...i didnt reallized that, it comes alone (subconsciousness?)
i was in college and i was going to my class. one guy was talking about her, he said: i felt in love with her
and in a moment when i was passing by him my subconsciousness said>I LOVE HER TOO.
of course it is not love 2 girl, it is love/admire/support 2 your hero.
i absolutely understand graham
she is like sun 2 me. i need it, i know that i cant touch it or get closer, but i can see its beauty and try to go where it leads. she is motivation 2 me, and every time
i see that proximus video i have to smile
and this is my story, i know we have same stories here, but thats why we are here

First time i saw daniela must have been wimbledon 2002! I was flicking around bbc's interactive menu to try and find a decent player to watch and i accidently clicked on the court she was playing on. So i decided to watch...first thing i thought....BLIMEY!!! SHE'S TALL!! ....didnt think much more about her. Then i watched her wimble match against jelena Dokic where she won, i didnt really like her then coz she beat my fav (at the time, obviously its dani now )

First time i truely became a 'dani fan' was at 2002 US open, i watched all her matches and stayed up sooooo late to watch her play against Henin, and when she hurt herself i was like nooooooo . Then she won and i almost woke my 'rents up with my triamphant yulp!! - what makes me like her, is not only her fantastic tennis and her ability to make me when she goes for those fantastic down the line shots. But its also that smile that makes you think 'what a sweetie!!', the elegance in the way she walks and most importantly that little hoppy-jumpy thing she does before she serves!! - not only do i think she is a fantastic player and person, i admire her greatly! awwwwww


woo yey dani!!!

Can you be just a little bit more specific pleeeeeaaasssssse
OK - I'll try to be a little more specific without boring everyone. Firstly, there are two things which excite me about her, one, she is the most unique tennis player I have ever seen. Her style has something no-one else has, and although we all know that she is not the finished article yet, when that day comes, the whole world will know about it. She came pretty damn close though at IW last year.

Secondly, if you asked me describe perfection in a woman, I would say everything that Daniela is - her mannerisms, her temperament, her attitude, her shyness, her looks, her hair, her legs, her body, her voice, just everything about her is so perfect to me. Now add that together with everything else and you have the most perfect tennis player in the world.

I have nothing against anyone who lusts after her and doesn't care two hoots about her tennis, but I think most of us here at the CP do care about her tennis and we have to show that kind respect to her. We know that she would rather talk about her tennis than her looks or modelling opportunities but she also accepts that there is a glamourous side in womens tennis, and being right at the very top of the glamour charts, there is nothing wrong in discussing it. It's called focusing on priorities.

if i have to be more specific...i have to say
that she is really very powerfull girl and i like that
because everytime i watch her play im totally out of my mind. she plays nicest balls, there is no other player
who can do it. its a bit risky but great to watch
to watch her game and to watch her
her musculature is amazing...she looks better than bruce lee in woman edition fok you all who started with that anorexia....

First time I saw her: sunday 17th of march 2002, when she won against Hingis. She played wonderfully, taking all the risks from the baseline. I noticed of course those legs and this well-proportionned body

First time I saw her in real life : wednesday 29th of may 2002, on court N°7 at Roland Garros. I wanted to know if my impressions during the Eurosport live at Indian Wells would be confirmed.

And......then arrived a stunning beautiful princess on this court : I LOVED the way she walks : elegant ! That was the most remarquable : the incredible way she walks...She wouldn't play tennis, I would be here just to see her walk...
And......of course these legs as in 2002.How could I describe what I felt? Sorry, Paycheck, but it's impossible !

Anyway, on that wednesday, that's what I saw (see attachment, already posted, but it's for Paycheck).

Since then, I followed all her matches in Eurosport during summer 2002, went to Open Gaz de France to see her ( I didn't know Graham at that time, he was
here that day too !), and I'm Cocktailer since last march

i have to smile because during RG eurosport was showing
legends and i watched Martina Hingis Vs Steffy (she won if im right) and Steffy has had absolutely NO style
her dress was awfull (blue+khaki/brown) and she jumped+walked like
she-goat really big fun

ME? I felt like this:

Seriously though, I first saw her on the papers when she won IW 2002. I thought she was pretty, but believe it or not I still wasn't compelled to jump straight into the Net and look for any picture I can find. The first time I saw her actually play was in Fed Cup 2002 and thats when it hit me that this was going one incredible player. When they won against Spain... thats when I actually went like this:

the first time i saw her was during AusOpen 2002....mixed doubles i think. and yes, pinky, she seemed like she was glowing. her cute face and those long legs were the first to make an impression on me. then after a few more minutes watching the game, i realized that she's no anna k copy. she could actually play really well. then my attention shifted to kevin coz i was really jealous of him! but then, sense got to me and realized that i'm lucky not to be him...hehe
