I don't think she is.
I mean u can see somethings that Venus does, so does Daniella, like hitting down the line backhand.
But just because Daniella hits hard doesn't mean she is even comparable to Venus.
Not yet anyways.
Venus hits way harder, and is more consistent.
Venus is much mentally thougher.
Venus has a bigger first serve, better court coverage(although Daniella amazes me as well), and also a better backhand.
The one thing that Daniella does better though is hit her second serve better then Venus.
Both have quality volleys, and both have reach, determination, and streaky forehands that take cofee breaks during a match.
But to say she is a 'clone' of Venus, IMO, is not right.
I mean Venus is #1 this week, and she is a two time Wimbledon champion, and two time Us Open Champion.
Of course, we have to give Daniella time to develop still.
We'll see though in few years if they are similar at all, and also see if Daniella has four slams by the time she reaches the age that Venus is now.
