Anyway, good luck for the rest of the tournament!

Dinara was cracking the ball, but lost her concentration and was broken by Sfar at love in the second set.

She said in the post match interview that she didn't play Dubai last year, so while making her schedule wanted to play here this time.

Re: Dubai: Dinara Safina def. Selima Sfar 61 63

I agree adamantly that Sfar should not be in the main draw of this event.

Safina was winning points at will, she could have won this match 6-0 6-0 if she concentrated better. A player who is not in the top 150, and is actually on her way 'down' in the rankings, towards the end of her career, cannot handle a top 20 player in the main draw of a massive tournament.
It was literally like watching a man playing a woman, and the fact that Sfar hits with one hand did not help her on the 'power' meter. Safina was destroying her.

Give Sfar a WC into the qualies perhaps, but I doubt she would win, perhaps a first round, but the level in the top 100 is well above what Sfar showed us today.

Sfar looked nice enough, serve volleyed sometimes, only when her serve wasn't blown away for a clean winner.
Otherwise, she was completely and utterly dominated by Safina, who somehow lost 4 games. I still can't give Sfar much credit for winning those 4 games. There were pretty much no rallies, just winner after winner from Safina, until she lost her concentration.

Anyway, I hope to see Sfar in the qualies next year, not in the main draw to get pummeled in an hour by a top player completely out of her league.

BTW, she very like Poland, she won first title in Sopot, but I don't now why Dinara never come to J&S in Warsaw. Now it's impossible

Good luck in next round probably in Chaki
