Daniela won a title before Anna Kournikova!

This just came to my attention.

Uh oh.. and wasn't Anna just talking about Daniela during Scottsdale about how she still has some experience to go thru or something? Oh don't get me wrong Anna is talented, but is this win by Dani a sign that Anna better also step it up and quick?

Now the battle is on between Alex and Anna and Tammy, me thinks we need a new POLL.

This is really surprising to me. If you asked me who was gonna win IW, I could said Dokic or Seles or Hingis, but I did not expext Hantuchova to win it.

But like Dokic won her first title ( tier I ROME), Daniela won her first title , and a tier I one too

SO, CONGRATS DANIELA, YOU DESERVE TO BE A TOP TEN PLAYER FOR A VERY LONG TIME

Dawn, somehow I knew that you would not forget your secret fave, ANNA.

Dani is quite a bit ahead of ANNA at this time, but hopefully she and Alex will get a win this year as well.

thanks for being so informative...i wasnt aware of that

but i would liked to hear anna's quotes from scottsdale, especially considering she wasnt there. that would be some achievement from anna.

at present anna leads daniela head to head 2-0

good on daniela for her win, she is one of my favourites, but this has little to do with anna, and bringing her into this is just being mischievous.

Talking

The facts still remain that Daniela passed Alex and Anna with the quickness. Now come on this is surprising.. Daniela played great tennis. Not ragging on Anna or Alex at all.. they will be next, but wow Daniela surprised me.

Actually Anna and Martina were asked about Daniela's potential after they defeated Hantuchova/Sanchez-Vicario @ the Oz. Anna/Martina stated that Daniela had a lot of potential, but that is all she had at that time. I think Daniela has made a great start to fulfilling that potential by winning Indian Wells defeating two top ten players (Hingis and Henin) so decisively. I hope that Daniela will continue to develop her game and not buy into the hype that will probably start to surround her now!

I really don't know where Anna K fits into Daniela's win. This day belongs to Daniela and she should be allowed to enjoy it without references to this event being watered down (only 5 top ten players showed up Henin, Clijsters, Dokic, Hingis and Seles) or any one referring to Anna K's lack of tour titles. Kudos belong to Daniela on a fine victory and great start to the year! So far Daniela has won a mixed doubles title, made the finals in doubles and won a tier 1 event in her first final defeating former no. 1 Martina Hingis. Not bad for an 18 year old girl!

OH it's ANNA again!

Don't forget that Elena Dementieva hasn't won any tournaments yet!!!
Not even a doubles title!!!

Also my country's Tammy!!...She has won only 2 doubles with no singles'.

If I'm not wrong......KIM hasn't won any Tier 1 tournaments yet!!!

POOR KIMMY!!!

The weird thing is..

that CNN World Sport use to always mention Anna winning
a match and getting closer to that first title. NOW, they don't
even mention if she's playing because they're tired of getting
burned in tournament report. LOL.

You get the feeling she may never do it.

Kinda like Pam S and her grand slam it'll be Anna and a tour title.

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

I still believe Anna K will win a title this year. Maybe I'm delusional - it certainly wouldn't be the first time!

Also, Daniela may be younger than Alex Stevenson and Anna Kournikova, but she's been around for a while too... I'm sure I was hearing of her back there in '99 (although she would have been 17). Daniela is older than both Jelena and Kim!

Seems like a long time ago now that an in-form Kournikova at her highest ranking would beat an unknown Slovakian rookie named Daniela Hantuchova, not yet in the top 100, in r1 of Oz 2000... now look where they both are.

The race for the 1st title? Elena D, Tammy, Anna, Alex, Magui Serna, Nathalie Dechy, Lina, Nadia, Elena B...

I'm going with either Anna, Tammy or Alex. At a Wimbledon warm-up tournament.

Dokic: 12.04.83
Hantuchova: 23.04.83
Clijsters: 08.06.83

Yup, a few weeks older than Kim, but 11 days younger than Jelena!

Compared to those two, she has actually blossomed a little late.

Dokic was already frightening people on the senior tour in 1999. And so was Kim. Especially with their Wimbledon showings that year. And Clijsters in the US Open.

I'm not a fan of Anna's but I wish she would just win a title already so all the announcers could just get over it lol... I'm starting to believe Anna is never going to win one though.... and a note to THE NET :
