Great first set with a very offensive play from both girls, then Daniela lost her concentration & Kata took advantage of it playing a solid tennis .... but this third set was completely horrible . Congrats!

as if she needed that ...
weirdly enough , when she was close to go up 4*/3 in th ethird and Hantuchova finally hold , I knew she was to lose her serve and the match ...
the game when Hantuchovas hat fell off was clearly hers.
EDIT: Hantuchova's hat fell off in a game where Srebotnik had like 4 break points for those who didn't watch. Srebotnik had an easy volley and then Hantuchova's hat fell off. I don't say it was meant by Hantuchova, but that game should be hers.
the last game, her forehand was clearly in, and Hantuchovas backhand a point before was clearly out. Shown on replay, not 100 % sure for the backhand being out though.
Anyway congrats Hantuchova. At least the umpires didn't decide to judge against Srebotnik vs. Whitehead or someone.
Yeah hopefully Hantuchova wins now. She deserves a good backup tournament after the semi of the Australian.
