Question Will Hantuchova ever win a title again?

Vote!

If I honest, I think she'll find it very tough. It's been a awful long time since Indian Wells 2002. I mean, has Daniela ever played has well since that match against Hingis? Her game is definetly good enough. I'm not sure she has a slam run in her these days like in 2002, but her form has improved gardually over the last couple of years.

But has a fan of someone who has a nightmare record in finals, I know how mentally it is so difficult when you get a record. And for that reason, unless Daniela plays a weakish Tier 2-Tier 3 event, I doubt she'll win a title again.

If she sucks up her pride a bit and stops playing the top events every single time, she can definitely win a lesser title.

Cool

She will! She knows she has to step it up! And yes she should humble herself in playing tier III tournaments just to bring back her confidence and rythm..

Not sure she can win any of the big events that she is aiming to win but if she applies herself the way she has done this week there's no doubt she can win tournaments below tier 1 level.

This is what I was gonna say. More kindly though but

Yeah, I've always wondered why she doesn't play lower once in a while. I also thought it was due to pride. She'll certainly win some tier III/IV with her game. I think she should look for a title fast elsewhere, get used to playing finals and get that monkey off her back.

Against anybody but Pova, Dani would have won a title today.

That was a fierce match today!!!

Yes, she will. But I think she needs to start playing a Tier III here, a Tier IV there, and she also needs to play well in these tournaments, not tanking the matches like she did in Bali . If she plays lower tiers and reaches the semi-finals and finals, I guess she'll get used to the pressure players usually feel in the last stages of the tournaments, something Dani doesn't cope well with, whether because she chokes or because she has to face a very good player, like Maria today.

Playing these smaller tournaments will help her to get some confidence, to know what to do when she's about to finish the matches off. Once she's able to do that, I'm sure she'll be able to do it as well more frequently when she has to face big names in the bigger tournaments.

Same probles as Schiavone - too high in the rankings to be playing lower Tier tournaments (pride) but if you want to win Tier I or II you need to beat top players which neither of them is capable doing!

As always people are not using their head in here

when was the last time she won a titel ... 2001?
