QUOTE: from TeeRex
"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."
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.
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!
