A Great Match - Hopman Cup: D. Safina def. S-W. Hsieh 4-6, 6-2, 7-5

Such a close and great match, I knew Safina would win...but Hsieh pulled out a great effort and I'm so proud of her, she played so well during the third set but the last few games, Dinara was too good. What a great match though. Just shows how much talent Hsieh really does have.

Bad tactics by Safina... hit the ball down the middle and let Hseih run you around.
Su-Wie had Dinara running from side to side, and was nailing flat winners everywhere... in one sense, she didn't let Dinara play well.
Fun match to watch though... The crowd really liked Su-Wei.

Su-Wei

Should have kept up the 4-2 lead in the third set.

Yeah. I'm excited to see her play against Flavia live. Should be a good match. She hit some outstanding winners, especially down the line.

Dinara is 2-0 but not playing well enough yet to be a real factor in Melbourne

I agree she hasn't been playing like a Top 5 player.

Marat won, so they're both 2-0 in singles

Hsieh obviously loves to play in Australia. Tough luck here.

I love Hseih's game so much, I hope she can have consistent results on the WTA tour this year.

It's heartbreaking to see how much Su-Wei is talented and how many points she will probably lose in three weeks .
