Daniela Vs. Patty

I think that Daniela will win this match in 2 sets. Considering the way she dismantled Schaul and the way that Patty has lost to many lower ranked players this year this might be easier than expected. Daniela wants revenge on Patty and Kuznetsova so she will pull through. GOod luck!! Whip her ass!!

Daniela Hantuchova : WaKe uP FrOm thiS NiGhTmArE!!!!
Serena Williams : Finally BaCk to HeR DoMiNaTiNg SeLF!! WhEn ShE's PLaYiNg!

Jelena Dokic : ShOw uS WhAt yOu CaN dO!

Since Charleston, has Patty been struggling? I really haven't been following her year? Is she confident, For some reason I don't doubt that because I haven't heard of her doing well in a tournament since the Family Circle Cup. So does anybody know?

No matter what kind of year Patty's having, Daniela should win, especially since this is a surface to her liking. Hope she crushes her GO DANI

In Patty's last 5 tournaments she has gone 3-5 losing to Medina Garrigues, Gagliardi, Frazier, Kostanic, and Harkleroad who are all ranked way behind her

I'm hoping for a comfortable win by Daniela Hantuchova. Maybe 6-4, 6-3 or 6-3, 6-4.

Let them eat cake.

You shouldn't persume from results of how projected matches are going to conclude, and especially with the likes of Patty Schnyder who you don't know what game she is going to provide the Audience with.

When Patty wins a first round match then anything is possible, even possible to defeat Daniela.

Daniela played great match, a thrashing but Claudine hasn't been anything special since defeating Lindsay, still it's omnious that a Scoreline suggests that Daniela is enjoying her surroundings.

Patty played great as well, and she bought her kick serve with her aswell, especially on this ultra fast service such as Athens is (re: Controversy) Her serve could be the the live or die part of her game, so it is a necessity that she has to retain it going into the game with Daniela, The outswinging Left serve also influenced by the pace of the surface could I believe really provide trouble for Daniela.

In essence though If Patty was not to bring her serve then it's going to be a hard struggle of who gets to the next round, Patty won't be able to survive without her serve today, especially playing against Daniela who has found some good form.

It's all up to you Patty, Bring your serve and your in with a chance

I think it's more in Daniela's hands than Patty's. Patty is very talented lefty who has alot of variety. Yes her serve is good, but U think she relies on that all the time. Does she? Correct me if I'm wrong. She has a terrific ground game as well. But I think this match is going to be more decided by how Daniela plays than Patty. Maybe if this was a clay court I would agree with u, but on this fast serface with Dani loves. Don't get me wrong Patty can play on hard courts but I feal if Dani is playing her best tennis she will control play with her terrific grond strokes & ability to put balls away at the net. Daniela also has a good serve so I really doubt that Patty will be able to over power her only because Patty takes huge swings and that could cost her on fast hard courts. My opinion id that if Dani keeps her unforced erors down, stays positive, really hits her shots(with conviction), she will be the winner. COMMON DANI!!!!!!!!!

dani has been struggling to keep her consistancy since eastbourne. if patty can stay with her early i think she has a much better chance than many people think

their last meetings:

Berlin: Schnyder def Hantuchova 6-2, 6-2

LA: Schnyder/Schett def Hantuchova/Rubin 6-2, 6-0.

Don't forget about all the frustration Patty had trying, unsuccessfully, to get her husband into the U.S. for the west coast swing. I think she was very unhappy in the U.S. and her game suffered for it. She'll play better in Greece. I pick Patty over Daniella in 3.

So? I geuss Patty's very inconsistent and erratic game doesn't feature because she is talented and alot of variety?? Give me break.

Where did I say she fully relies on her serve??, I don’t think that at all, but I defiantly believe Her serve is her greatest asset and when it is not producing, then Patty doesn’t produce the goods. It’s universally acknowledged that when she is serving well it heavily compliments her game, that’s why she was successful at Zurich, Charleston, Australian Open 04.

Particulary on Hard extremely very fast courts such as Athens, When you get to become a fan of Patty you will realise that their are distinctivly two games that she brings, and they seem to always compliment the other.

The Patty we know and Love has a terrific ground game, a variety of shot selection, and it is always complimented by a powerful Left Kick Serve.

The Patty that we have seen over the last month has came into the US Hardcourts with poor results, loosing to players like Harkleroad, Kostanic and Gagliardi on Grass, not Players she should be loosing to, so lets not debate that these are "good" players in distinction to them playing Patty,

She only had partially her game and her serve wasn't the greatest it has been ie: AO 4th, QF. She defeated herself, even though the Scoreline of Gagliardi vs Schnyder was competitive, it wasn't.

But I think this match is going to be more decided by how Daniela plays than Patty.
Lets get it straight .....

Daniela + Athens Surface = Promising.
Patty + Athens Surface = Not Promising.


Patty's most erratic surface are fast courts, especially Grass, look at her results at Wimbledon, her best Grass Preformance was this year at Eastbourne, SF loss to Sharapova, maybe showing a little adjustment that she can play on Grass.

Remember she was going to cancel playing Wimbledon to prepare to Athens, she stated specificially that she didn't enjoy Fast Surfaces and they wern't her preferred, Now since this controversy regarding the Athen Surface, they seem to be alot Faster than Wimbledon ..Something Patty probably wouldn't of expected like the Clay courters who protested about the pace of the surface.


Quote:
Maybe if this was a clay court I would agree with u, but on this fast serface with Dani loves.
I would agree on all terms, not Just Clay , Patty is Erratic, Inconsistent, Unpredictable, Unreliable even on her preferred surface, her flurry of first round exits before RG 2003 to opponents ranked in their 60's and 70's just proves that she is more inconcistent then Cher's Plastic Surgery, thats only one example, many many many more, Infact ask any one and they will agree that her Tennis carrer since 1999 has been a career of inconsistencies,

Thats why she has to prove something out there, It's in her hands

Dainelas proven that shes geared up and raring to go, the smothering of Claudine Schaul and recent preformances indicates she is in top gear, she loves this surface, which you ironically say, suggests that she is comfortable on the surface and surroundings and considering her preformances, Patty will have to produce something to be able to defeat Daniela, Thats why pressure is on Patty

Daniela doesn't need 2 increase or fine tune her game to Defeat Patty (and this is a Patty Fan Speaking) Play like she did against Claudine Schaul and shes into the next round, hence It's up to Patty to move up the rung or two, increase to the next gear level to be within a chance, hence bringing that serve, which..if successful on the Pacey, fast courts should provide Probelms for Daniela considering that it will swing away from Daniela

Hence thats why the game in Patty's hands, you have explained that Daniela is playing well and that...
Quote:
she will control play with her terrific groundstrokes....
So hence Patty got to "bring her game" in order to win.

Exactly why the outcome of the game is on how Patty Plays. If Patty can bring her game with her and her serve which I believe is extremely important on a surface she doesn't enjoy much the she is within a chance, Danielas Beatable, though you never know with Patty, Bring her "U.S Hardcourt" game and she can pack her bags back to the Matterhorn.
