Did Daniela know she was into the YEC before the Linz final?

What an absolute pantomime of a day Sunday was. Who are they trying to kid having all those announcements sitting waiting to fire off as soon as the final was over. Disgustingly patronising way to treat the fans and the public.

Re: Did Daniela know she was into the YEC before the Linz final?

the fans are always the last ones to find out such information about withdrawals. You can safely guess that if informaiton about Venus withdrawal from YEC appeared Sunday on Ivanovic website on, that WTA and all players including Daniella knew this since several days earlier.

I'm pretty sure she knew it before. Probably that's why she was so relaxed and composed during the final.

Re: Did Daniela know she was into the YEC before the Linz final?

Probably, that's why she didn't enter Quebec I expect (either that or the loss to Melanie Gloria is still haunting her!) And why she didn't choke for once.

Re: Did Daniela know she was into the YEC before the Linz final?

Off course she knew. I didn't know anything about Venus withdrawl and when I saw Daniela's reaction in the matchpoint and in the minutes afterwards, I thought she was too relaxed for someone who had just made into the YEC.

Re: Did Daniela know she was into the YEC before the Linz final?

It doesnt really matter now anyway. Am so glad that Daniela is at the YEC, back in the Top10 playing well, reached more finals and won two more titles this year. And she will add more points on which could help her with her ranking as she didnt play YEC last year!

Re: Did Daniela know she was into the YEC before the Linz final?

Hantuchova can beat anyone, really...aside from Venus and Lindsay she's beaten everyone else at least once.

But I still stand by why it didn't matter if she knew--this was still an extreme pressure situation, this was no different than the Luxembourg final situation. Winning a non-IW title has been a big deal for her for ages, especially after winning there again this year, and making her third final in six weeks has gotten her more used to the feeling of getting to finals. Again, Lunaris was correct--put her in more finals, she's going to start winning them.

With or without knowing if Venus withdrew, which she probably did, she'd have choked this final even if she DIDN'T know prior to this year or even that long ago. It was a huge mental hurdle to pass anyway....and she passed it with flying colors.

Anyway, thread.

Doesn't matter, she won a tourney outside of IW, that's a big hurdle to cross for her, and she earned her spot in the YEC doesn' matter if she knew about Venus.
