Stuttgart 2R: (8) Daniela Hantuchova v. Elena Dementieva

Two of my favorite players going at it and I can finally see a match of theirs "live."

What are your thoughts on this match-up? Is Daniela playing too well at the moment? Is their close indoor H2H relevant still? Who does this surface favor? And most of all, who do you think has the most to prove here?

Thanks!

Thoughts on this match-up: hard, crisp hitting.
Dani playing too well: Yes.
Close H2H relevant: Ultimately, no.
Surface favours: No one above the other, but Dani is playing better IMO.
Most to prove: Dani.

But Hantuchova will win.

Re: Stuttgart 2R: (8) Daniela Hantuchova v. Elena Dementieva

I'm not sure if it'd be fair to call Daniela Elena's bitch, but out of any remotely top player (top 30 or so), she's the closest to being Elena's #1 bitch.

I wouldn't be surprised if Daniela won. However, this court is pretty slow and I think that favors Elena, not that either are particularly great on slow surfaces or anything.

In the long run, Elena has more to prove by beating her now, but Daniela needs this win to gain some coverage for the YEC race. And frankly put I'd give Daniela a better chance against Justine than Elena by far.

Once again, it's just nice to see Elena playing people I know/love. Two straight tournaments in a row.
