Unhappy If Jen or Venus lose to Dani are you guys to put them down too?

I'll ask again when Jen or Venus lose to Dani this year.

The sky has lost its color
The sun has turned to grey
At least that is how it feels to me
Whenever you're away

Venus has never lost to Hantuchova.

And I don't see it happening anytime soon either.

I think Capriati will stay ahead of the charging Hantuchova as well.

The answer is NO, plus I would not put down Hingis as well. The Hingis I saw tonight was in stark contrast to the Hingis observed against Seles. I am anticipating with great interest matches between Jen, Venus, and also Serena against Daniela.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!

Hey, VENUS already whipped Dani and when she had an injured leg no less.

Seriously though, it is Hingis' own fans who seems to be trashing her at this time.

obviously venus or jenn would NEVER EVER lose to daniela

what a question

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

I think most people in general gave Hingis her props.. she played well. Made few errors. It was her own fanbase who kinda is rough on her this time.

Now of course if she beats Venus I am gonna be hurt.. cause Vee is my #1 favorite. I will give her her props.. but after I take about 4 or 5 hours away from the board to recuperate. When my favorite loses I tend to leave the board as I know it will not be a pretty place. Not for long as I lurve posting here.. cant stay THAT long.. but I take a chill pill. then come back in a better frame of mind.:-)

I saw the thread, and was about to say that you have to excuse all of Daniela's fans, because many of our comments were straight after the match, while there was still a lot of heat and emotion in the air, but after everyone saying Daniela has no chance of beating Capriati or Williams, I think the joke is on you guys again.
It's brash comments like that that push us to hit opposing fans when there down.
Daniela has improved 10 fold since playing Venus at the Open, and the added experience she has gained just in this tournament will hold her in good stead.
At least she played in one of the biggest tournaments of the year, unlike the others.
Now, I am not saying that Daniela will win the next meeting with either Venus or Jennifer, but to flat out say she cant beat them after such a great win, with no proven reason is just plain sour grapes.

In Aure of Daniela.

It appears that some posters on current threads are implying that there┤s some sort of devaluation to winning against Hingis. However, there are so many power players, and beating one or two of them each tournamnet is obviously not enough for Hingis.

Twice, already, has Capriati been put through hell by Hantuchova, and I wouldn┤t be very surprised if she sooner than later upsets Serena or Venus. She has both the power and tactics to do it.

I think that Daniela is going to take the power play to another level. Not more powerful, but smart power.
She is the most complete player I have seem to the tour ever. Daniela, as you all know has the groundstrokes to compete with them all. She has the willingness to come to the net, and her doubles play will continue to see her improve. She has the best smart serve on the tour, and she knows the placed power is better than pure power. Dani has great touch, the ability to drop shot off the volley and off the groundstroke.
And then her fitness. During the peak of hot weather this week, Daniela beat Schett, then I an interview afterwards, said that she cherished those conditions. She went to South Africa to improve on he fitness before the Australian Open, and competed in 14 matches in 14 days. She has the endurance and fitness to beat them all.
She is an amazing player, who will be the only serious contender in all four grand slam, because of her variety of play.
Many player have some sort of weakness in their game, often it is something that can't be fixed like height (Hingis and Henin), Strength (Hingis and most other players), speed (Davenport) and a second game plan (Serena, Venus and Seles), but Daniela has all those thing.
The only minor thing at the moment is her footwork due to her long, gorgeous leg, but once she build strenght in them, there is nothing that she has got.
Experience, Sorry, she has that now.
Tell me what she hasn't got, and I bet I can prove she has it, or will have it soon.

She is a God given Angel and Talent.
And as the rhyme goes, "Number 1, here I come".

I anxiously await another matchup between a healthy Venus, Jennifer and Serena, even Hingis, and Daniela. That would be interesting to watch. And hopefully it would be at a Grandslam. Personally I don't see Daniela, as much as i LOVEE her, beating Venus anytime soon. Is she playing the Nasdaq? Does anyone know?

I think if she beats Venus I would just accept it, if venus can lose to Meghann why not daniela .....now if she beats Venus wearing that black cocktail dress number and appears on the cover of Vogue(with a dejected Venus in the background) having eclipsed venus both on the court and in the fashion department too .....that I may find a little hard to handle

Daniela has improved 10 fold since she played Venus at the AO? Really? I didn'y see her match against Marti, but I watched the match against Venus and she played great. She had Marti's touch, and a lot more power. At that time, some people had already stated that if she played like taht against other players such as Marti and Monica, she would beat them. I really look foward to her match up against the sisters because I feel it's going to be really exciting. I think the sisters are going to be the toughest opponents for Daniela to beat. But if as someone has stated she has improved 10 fold since then, I would think she is unbeatable now.
