Hantuchova Is Not!

...the next Venus, or Martina, or _________ fill in the blank.
...the future of tennis.
...the newest overhyped flash in the pan.


She is Daniela Hantuchova, tennis player, and the 'now' of tennis.

I think she is more of the future than the now of tennis. The now of tennis is still martina venus serena lindsay and jen. Then there is the almost now of tennis like amelie jelena kim and justine. Then there is the almost gone but still kicking of seles sanchezV and the old guard.

I second that Seles! Remember what happened last time you dedicated a thread of praise to Dani?

GO Daniela!!! Best of luck against Martina tomorrow! One of many Tier I finals to come!

Hey guys and girls,
Everyone will have there favourite, and they will like specific player for specific reason.
But remember each player is out there working hard on there game for a career/living and to entertain us in the process.
No player deserves to be disrespected because one person is biased towards another player.
I dont think I've seen a player go out there to purposely offend or annoy any tennis fans.

I'm am a huge fan of Daniela's and I have had the odd comment to say about the way some of the other player have acted in the pass, but I try not to get personal about it because they aren't personally attacking us.

But I agree with 'seles', I'm not a fan of comparing a player to a previous player, and I believe she is the Present and the Future, but maybe more so the Future.

Everyone, just enjoy this Angel blossom into a marvelous player.
There no need to critised each other.
Just have fun!

Simon

Talking

I think Hantuchova will have to take at least half a year more to develop, she has insufficient experience to be the 'now' of tennis.

VENUS
Serena
Lindsay Jelena Maria

Mary : Monica : Svetlana : Sania : Jennifer : Amelie
Roddick : Grosjean : David : Djokovic

I wrote in another thread that Daniela will be frustrated by Hingis and Hingis will win in straight sets...hopefully

However, I am definetly a Hantuchova fan now. I liked her before this tournament, but I really like her now that I got to see her live at Indian Wells. She is so striking, both as a person and a player. She holds herself very well and with a lot of confidence, especially for a girl who is only 18. I'm 20, and she seems more mature than me

Anyway, but yeah, I don't think she'll win tomorrow, but she's definetly going to have a bright future ahead of her.

hantuchova is definately gonna be a top player. though everytime she loses its cos of lack of expierence aparently. when she lost to mauresmo in 3 it was lack of experience then the same with capriati, then v.williams and the in the doubles finals at the ausopen.

Hey Daniela fans, you do know that saying she's the Future of tennis is not an insult, but a compliment, right?

It sounds like you're taking it as though everyone's writing Daniela off, and thats not the case.

She's not really the Present of tennis, I'd agree that Venus, Serena, Martina, Jennifer are still the Present of tennis. But Daniela is the Near-Future of tennis.

And I doubt anyone can honestly say they believe Hantuchova is overhyped. Anyone with eyes can see she has tremendous potential.

And like Martina Hingis said, re Daniela: "Hantuchova is very young, up-coming player....This is Hantuchova's time."


(But only after Martina. Go Martina!)

Daniela's time is to come... she will definitely be the future's no 1. player if she keeps on playing well, on working, on concentrating on tennis... I hope she won't share the destiny of dementieva...

Lola, I don't think Dani will struggle the way Elena Dementieva has. The big difference is that Daniela wins alot of free points with her serve. And Elena doesn't.

Actually, Daniela reminds me of a bigger Maria Sharapova.

And Daniela has the weapons to bother Martina. If not beat her. She's finally putting on a little weight, too. And that can only help Daniela.

Daniela generates quite a bit of power from her backhand side. I'm wondering if her training staff will try to build muscle onto her thin body.
