Anyone else seeing a new improved Hantuchova?

I mean I saw her when she won the tittle earlier and in the match against Zvonareva. Exclude the chocking part she is really hitting the ball clean and hard .

Can she make some damage in Indian Wells and Miami?

I notice she has more muscles this year. And very likely to use them to kick ass.

It's not really a "new" Hantuchova, she has been top 5 before.

Re: Anyone else seeing a new improved Hantuchova?

Same choker as usual, however her game has definately improved. But who gives a shit, a choker doesn't win.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

She's doing well with her new coach, even if she couldn't pull a win today. More focused.

Re: Anyone else seeing a new improved Hantuchova?

This is the 1st time since i've been following tennis that i've actually seen why she was a top 5 player.

Re: Anyone else seeing a new improved Hantuchova?

i was impressed with her shots, she hit pretty clean
too bad she's still a choker.

Re: Anyone else seeing a new improved Hantuchova?

Mentally? Not yet. Or I believe she should have achieved much more.
Plus, AO 08 is just to hard to forget.

Re: Anyone else seeing a new improved Hantuchova?

New and improved, not really. She's just picking up some good form, has always been able to play like this.

She loves IW and feels very comfortable there, but she needs to play well first otherwise her love for IW won't get her that far, just like last year.

Daniela definitely is trying to cut her UE's. She's more careful, using her BH effectively again and serving pretty well.

She's on a good way back to Top 20.

Re: Anyone else seeing a new improved Hantuchova?

Yes, she has improved a lot, we hadn't really seen her as good as this for a couple of years. Her current results especially in a year which she lost in the 1st round of AO, makes her achievements more visible. I hope she continues her current form and gets back to top 10 after 3 years.

Re: Anyone else seeing a new improved Hantuchova?

She always had game. It's definitely good to see her back on form. She really is hitting the ball very well, creating some good angles. Yeah she choked - but not in a horrific way.

She's just playing at a higher level, but there's nothing new in her game.
