Daniela!

I'm not sure how you turned around the match, but you did.

Dinara led something like 7-5 3-1.

Very nicely done, easily could have lost in when she lost serve twice in a row but she broke right back both times, very well done Daniela!!

Re: Sydney round 1: [6] Hantuchova def. Safina 57 64 64

i thought it was over at 5-7 2-4. but then dani won 9 of the next 11 games to get to 6-4 5-2 before choking a bit.

over 2 and a half hours, rest up now for nicole or camille tomorrow

good start to 2008 officially

Daniela she really had to fight for it & I'm pleasd she held her nerve in the end after she could served it out earlier at 5-2. Hopefully she'll have more success to come

Dinara she played really well & just went for broke when she got injured. Hopefully the injury isn't too serious.

Boring match to watch, some good points of tennis. I like Safina of court, but her on-court persona is a bit crazy :P

I don't like the rule about coaches being on court either!

Daniela was down 2-5 in the first set, then 2-4 in the second. She played at about 50% for the entire match, Dinara was brilliant for patches but couldn't sustain her level for more than a few games at a time. Her injury was a non-factor.

Daniela really didn't go for the lines like usual, rather focusing on finding her rhythm and gaining some consistency. It was still a strong match given her past performances in Sydney, and her recent illness.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske
