Will Daniela ever win a big match again?

Like a 3rd round match at a slam for example?

yes, but probably not against the sisters. Probably against a Russian. Let's not forget she has beaten Molik this year in Dubai!!

When did she win a big match.. 2002 agains Hingis at the lackluster field at indian wells.

"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

Sir Richard Williams

Daniela's biggest problem is her mental game. Mentally she has letdowns in the matches she plays. If she would work on that she would win a lot more big matches.

She sure has the game to do so. Mentally, that's another story. once she builds her confidence level up a couple notches, she will.

I think so, she played pretty well today, Venus just had more winners. She's improved and will improve more

Ser ena the best and coolest in the world along with this person: Venus Williams

No. Daniela is too mentally weak during a tight or important situation. She was 5-5 40-0 up threw in a DF and started getting annoyed by Richard Williams and lost total concentration. She's beaten only 2 top 20 players since last year, Molik twice and a slumping at the time Likhovtseva. And they weren't in big matches.

The question that we should really ask is if Dani will ever win a title again cos she shows no signs of ever doing it.

Well said.

Daniela has had chances to win big matches. At the USO last year she wasted a few match points against Schynder in the 3rd Round. Then at the AO she lost to Dementieva in a close 3 setter where she had chances, but didn't take them. Then today, she could have made this even closer, possibly a 3 setter, or even a win. I mean if Daniela could have won the 1st set, she would have been much more positive in the 2nd set.

Daniela has been very consistant in the slams. She's made 5 straight 3rd rounds. She's living of to her GS seeding. She just needs another big win or tournament like in Dubai & Doha to get her going again.

She always finds a way to lose. She's a terrible closer against anyone ranked ahead of her.

I agree. I think that she is a good player, but she needs to work on her confidence. She has the game to win big matches, but she doesn't have the belief in herself. If she gets more confidence, she'll win the big matches.
