Daniela Hantuchova could show she is no flash in the pan with a win at the Porsche

After Daniela Hantuchova beat Martina Hingis at Indian Wells, she was immediately hyped as the Second Coming of the WTA tour and a sure WILLIAMS stopper, but the momentum stopped and so far she has only seemed to want to go after Anna K's title as the the tours most photographed player.



A win here could begin to show that Dani is more serious about tennis than riding nude on some lucky horse.

However, if you want to make money, bet on Clijsters in the finals.

"Great" year?

Tier titles = 1
GS titles = 0

A good year in comparison to all players ranked below the top 30, but hardly a great year.

For a better definition of a great year please refer to the top two ranked players on the tour.

It depends on the draw.

If she gets, Venus, Serena, Jennifer, Monica, Amelie, Clijsters etc. then shes out of luck

but if she plays Dokic or Henin then she has a chance

Yeah i think you are being rather flippant as usual TeeRex. Daniela in my opinion is still a player on the rise.

I could care less what you think she should have done after Indian Wells. She has still worked hard this year despite the various losses she accumulated.

And she has never thought of herself as the Second Coming or a threat to the WIlliams sisters. That is something you came up with all by your wee little self.

Talking about media hype.

Then again that is what I like about Daniela who reminds me a lot of Lindsay. Daniela might be more photographed but she is a gracious girl who does not trash talk but plays tennis.

SHe will be no "flash-in-the-pan."

no she had a great year compare to HERSELF damnit.

This is her breakthrough year, what did she do in 2001? Nothign give her a break, you dun have to win 3 grand slams and 5 other titles, or reaching 3 slams final and winning most of the tourneys you enter to being said to be a good season

1st of all TeeRex, Daniela's GREAT Talent & Potential has been talked about for over two years now, by Intelligent & Knowledgeable people like Martina N. And Probably longer then that. Daniela's Fans have known she's #1 material for a long time. Like Martina H & Venus fans, when they were young, we could see how GREAT they are. (& I think Matina H & Venus are GREAT players too BTW.) The only people who suddenly started saying Dani is the "second coming of" what ever you're talking about after IW, are people who didn't know much about her before that.

2nd, Daniela is an EVERYONE stopper. She & her REAL fans don't care WHO is on the otherside of the net, we want her to stop them ALL. Purpasely targeting your own favorites, in your own post, just makes it look like you're trying to start another *TeeRex Pity Festival* & trying to draw all the fans of your faves & fans of who ever you're picking on this time, into an argument.

3rd & the WORST thing, you just HAVE to make a totally snotty, mean statement about Daniela at the end of your post. Prolly, to make someone say a mean thing about your faves just because you said a mean thing about Dani, so you can start an argument.

Well that's just LOW!

And what's REALLY Sad or Silly, I can't decide, you got your facts TOTALLY WRONG!!

Not only in the 1st part but in your snotty remark about the horse. THAT WAS MYSKINA on the horse!! NOT Dani! Dani was VERY clothed in her pictures & looked fine on her horse too.


SHEESH!


If you want to read about Daniela, I think Dawn Marie had a Very Knowledgeable post about Daniela the other day!

QUOTES: from Dawn Marie

"Dani is no fluke, but that doesn't mean that her TierI didn't open up in her favor by V@S withdrawing. It was Dani who did what she had to do to win, and you just don't beat Henin and Hingis and not be a fluke. Hingis was playing pretty well back then, and Daniela played solid tennis.

Dani will be a #1 ranked player. When people said Serena would never become #1 or win a title or be a ONE slam wonder I just laughed. I am laughing now concerning Dani and fluking


barmaid I disagree she outplayed Martina. Martina was stuck like "ChuckY" in that match. Hingis underestimated Daniela in that match, and Danieal played solid. She moved Hingis around and took advantage of Hingis going to the open court by hitting winners down the line. Daniela went in that match with a scout on Martina and she played fearless.

they also played again about a month after that with Hingis winning, but it was a VERY close match again. Which leads me to suggest that Daniela is no fluke. She has room to grow and she also has a heavy arsenal of shots and weapons, and will be #1 one day and will win a slam. I wouldn't be surprised if she won a slam before Jelena, Henin, or Kimmie. She's really that good, and will only get better IMHO."


I agree with what Dawn said & I think Daniela's going to get BETTER & BETTER as she keeps playing & learning!


PS: Sorry everyone if this post is late, I deleted it by mistake & had to write it twice & I hope I didn't mess up the quotes, I've never done that before.

PS#2: Sorry everyone for talking so much but I don't like it when someone is picking on Daniela!

DANIELA HANTUCHOVA = #1

Good luck Nathalie Dechy & Dinara Safina too!

BTW, in my last post, I meant to say MYSKINA "looked fine on her horse too" I forgot to type her name.

Daniela was NEVER on the horse. sorry for the typo

DANIELA HANTUCHOVA = #1

Good luck Nathalie Dechy & Dinara Safina too!

She's had a great year because she's had terrific results and has done well at the Slams AND won Indian Wells IMO.

Anyway, I came here to be an annoying bitch and say: Daniela, "remain a flash" in the pan after tomorrow please!!

for Kimmy's benefit

Yeah, I like Dani, I wouldn't mind if she won! LOL! HOWEVER, aw, Kimmy, I just love her so much. I'll be utterly heartbroken if she lost. But she has already achieved more than Dani, and on that note, that is why I would be more pleased if Mrs. LongLegs won.

Teerex, ONCE again you display your non-existent knowledge of the game. Since when is rising from 38 to 9 in the rankings in 9 months not having a great year? Just because she hasn't had Serena's year doesn't mean its not great. Perhaps you should stick to what you know best, and thats Venus and Serena, instead of embarrassing yourself like this. And when exactly did Dani ride naked on a horse? I think you're mixing her up with someone else, who you probably don't even know the name of

btw, nice post Freefall

I also think a great year can simply encompass: rising out of anomity (sp?) ...that sounds intelligent when spelled right, yeah

The only players that were talked about as "the second coming" were Monica, Capriati, Venus Williams, Anna Kournikova and Martina Hingis. Hantuchova is not in their (well maybe annas) league. All of them had accomplished triple fold of what Hantuchova has done by 19. I'm not knocking Daniela, but unless she pulls a Navratilova, shes not going to #1
