I'm rooting for Dinara Safina...

Not because I'm a big fan of herS, but because I would love to see this board crash and go into complete meltdown mode. It would be a fucking instant CLASSIC like Ali vs Frazier to see this board go up in flames. GO DINARA GO!

Re: I'm rooting for Dinara Safina...

I really feel bad for her. It would be great if she could finally win a slam. Just imagine if she somehow managed to defeated Serena in the final. Unlikely, I know, but that would be just amazing

I'm not a fan of Safina, but THAT would be awesome.

I don't want Serena in the final, but if she is, I hope she crushes Dinara again

Re: I'm rooting for Dinara Safina...

It would be classic. They might have to shut the site down for a week or two.

With Dementieva gone, Clijsters and Vee unlikely winners.. I'm totally rooting for Dina

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: I'm rooting for Dinara Safina...

So in other words: You want Safina to win solely because it'd upset other posters.

Man, I wish us Serena fans could be as mature as you guys.

Re: I'm rooting for Dinara Safina...

I´ve never seen anyone getting so much criticism for being a slamless number 1 (maybe Jankovic being the expection), I feel sorry for her and I´m rooting for her to win this thing, even though it would take a miracle for her to beat Serena in the final... I´ve become a fan of hers since Cincinatti, people talk like it´s easy to get to number 1 in the world, it´s disgusting

If she won this she would slap everyone in the face for talking too much, but I think she´ll win Roland Garros next year

ITF: “She is the sole author of her own misfortune.”

Good thing for you she has a cakewalk draw, so she can try to find some rythm by the SF

Re: I'm rooting for Dinara Safina...

If the board didn't go boom when Ana won the French, there is no chance of the board going boom if Dinara wins the USO

Caroline on the other hand

Re: I'm rooting for Dinara Safina...

It's pathetic to think Safina EVER has a cakewalk draw. She's so unpredictable it's just stupid to ASSUME every match will be a pushover.
