I must question the Oath of Allegiance by Hantuchova fans

Just how long have each of you liked Daniela?

I'm a young girl, an old WTAWorld member.

Personally, I don't know if I like Daniela yet, but I definitely like her style of play. I first noticed her in a match with my girl Venus. Even though she lost I could see she had a lot of potential. I'll hold off on "the Oath of Allegiance" bit until I see more of her.

I saw her name a lot last year, but only saw her play on TV first at the AO against Venus. I liked her style a lot, so I went to her first match at Indian Wells and was blown away by her game. I saw all of her matches (singles and doubles) at IW as well as seeing her around the grounds and was really impressed by her attitude and demeanor. That's why I support her

I am still skeptical about her and where she is coming from.

Her mouth has not opened yet as far as I'm concerned because I made the error of falling quickly for Elena D. til she exposed her stupidity at Indian Wells 2000 with her little comment.

So far I will say that I'm impressed with her but will still hold off judgement for after the Usopen...but then her arival would have been announced and she would have been used to the pressure of being a top player.....then I will know.

When I think of life, sometimes my response is "Oh Damn!". But I still think of life anyway, "Oh Damn!!!"

The first time I saw her play was at IW versus Gagliardi. Great match! It was there that I noticed her game favored one of my favorites Venus Williams. I spoke with some friends and they agreed her game resembled the best player in the world. Her match with Hingis only reinforced her Venus like attributes. Ever since then I have been anxious to see her play again. Daniela's early exit at KB has me searching the draws of tournies hoping she is playing. I hope its soon. Let's hear it for Daniela "lil v" Hantuchova!!!!!

Hi Venus

Hi Serena

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Like Tratee, I heard her name a lot during tournaments last year and especially in the Fall when she beat Babsi. First time I got to see her play was at AO in singles and doubles and was very impressed with her skill and strategy. I will wish her well and can't wait to see her play in Amelia in a few days.

I've been a fan for a while now, I first saw Daniela in Rome last year playing an Italian player, could have been Serra Zanetti. Then I saw her in the flesh at Wimbledon, but became a real fan in her match against Jennifer at the Canadian Open last year when she was a set and 4-1 or something up, right from that match I was a huge fan and could see that she was a huge talent in the game. Since then it's been fantastic to see her rising in the rankings and the progress she's made

I discovered the Gem named Daniela at a Practise Session on the first Tuesday of the Australian Open this year.
Actually, I saw her walking with her coach to an outside court, and I was automatically drawn to her.
I watched the entire 2 hour session and fell in love.
It was her attitude on court that got me...it was shy yet confident.
There were only like 5-6 people watching her so I enjoyed a very private session, and often she'd look over and had this smile on her face all embarrassed as if to say "I can't believe your sitting there watch me train when you could be watching a match somewhere".
It was true, I knew she was special to me when I gave up a chance at seeing my favourite men's player, Carlos Moya play, who was on at the same time.
I went on to see her play 1 singles match and 4 Doubles matches live during to Open plus the matches on TV and have followed her ever since.

There is no doubt that I found out about Daniela by pure luck and perhap fate. I didn't know anything about her, didn't know her name, didn't know she was seeded, didn't know anything about her passed results, I came in fresh....and I think that was the best way for me, I had no pre-conceived expectation about her at all, and that was nice.

I was so happy to see Daniela win Indian Wells after following her for a few months and will keep on supporting her in my biased and non-biased ways until the end.

I admit that there are people out there that have know Daniela much longer than I have, but I doubt she has a bigger fan than me.

I adore my Angel...
And there is no question of my loyalities to her.
I love her as a player and a person, so if she succeeds this year or if it takes longer, I'll be here cheering her on.
Thats the only way I support players. I don't base it on there results. I have supported Carlos Moya since he appeared at the 97 Australian Open, and he has won the French in 98, but not much since, but he is still my favourite men's player and will be until he finishes.

The best of Luck to Daniela and Carlos during this tough Clay court season.

3.30pm on January 15th, 2002.....the moment my best ever discovery was made.

wasn't this the girl Venus beat while she was limping and could not move in Australia or is this someone else?

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

I really took notice of her at last year's Italian Open when she gave me a scare playing Amelie. Amelie won (THANK GOD) 6-2, 3-6, 6-3. After that I really started to pay attention to Daniela's results. I really liked what I saw and it's only gotten better. What's great is she hasn't even played her best tennis yet so I have that to look forward to in the future. Personalitywise she seems ambitious without being overly full of herself. She seems like a very "grounded" young lady.

Amélie Mauresmo, 2009 GDF Suez, 2007 Proximus Diamond Games, 2006 World No. 1 ,Wimbledon Champion, Proximus Diamond Games, Gaz, Australian Open, 2005 YEC, Advanta Chamionships, Italian Open, Proximus Diamond Games, 2004 World No. 1, Advanta Championships, Generali Linz, Rogers Cup, Italian Open, German Open, 2003 J&S Cup, Advanta Championships, 2002 Rogers AT&T Cup, Dubai Open, 2001 Gaz, Nice, Amelia Island, and Eurocard Ladies German Open, 2000 Adidas International, and 1999 Bratislava Champion

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

Dementieva made some accusations about match-fixing regarding serena/venus....I don't want to rehash it though..

What Elena said was a bit "tongue-in cheek" if you realy know what she meant

still you guys give her the hard stick

As for Daniela, i saw her in Nagoya 1997 in the U14 World Junior Tennis Finals for Slovakia.
She wasn't as tall then but she certainly impressed with her shots.

I first noticed Daniela in mixed doubles early last year, giving the guys a hard time with her serve - which seems just as effective on either sex. I later saw her live in a XD semi-final at Wimbledon, where she impressed.
