Lux 1/4 final: Punchbag Alert! Hantuchova d. LiDL 7-5 6-0

dani now 5-0 on LiDL, good match, dani was wild, but some of Lourdes touches were amazing. Dani hit some nice volleys and played quite well, still some erratic errors. Her movement is improving with every match as well. 4-1 down in first set a double break before her brain came back and helped her through.

130 big points for Dani Next up Lucie or Monica...

LiDL good week and nice finish to the season
LiDL's problem was she was so far back and the roof is so low so she could not loop the balls up too much. Sometimes she was not even in the picture.

Dani got the break in 2nd set for 2-0 with the worst over rule I have seen in a long time, the replay showed visible space between the ball and the line, I wonder if the Umpire did it because of Dani having a go at her earlier in the match...
Dani was chasing a lot of balls down and on the stretch with some volleys.

Yay- Go Dani. A bagel to celebrate a new punchbag

The 60 extra points are going to make a difference to her end of year ranking. From around 40 to 32 which is great! Another win would do wonders too

Daniiiiiela!!!
I am so happy for her!

The thing is, about the one that got away, if he was meant to be in your life, then he would’ve found his way back to you.
So, you moved on; you chose a different road. Good. Keep your eyes on that.
If you’re always looking in the rear-view mirror, you’re going to miss the turn you need to make in the road ahead of you.
And believe me, there’s always plenty of road ahead of you. Focus on that.

Re: Lux 1/4 final: Punchbag Alert! Hantuchova d. LiDL 7-5 6-0

Yeah, very good match. Best I've seen Dani play in a long time.

Credit to LDL for forcing Dani to play at the level she did. Dani was put under a lot of pressure early with absolutely everything coming back and she was being forced into making a lot of very awkward shots.

Against a player like LDL you have to be patient, you have to make the right shot selections and you have to execute those shots. From the start, Dani was being pretty patient and her shot selection wasn't bad either but her execution was letting her down. But her execution got better as the match wore on and by the end she was hardly missing and she was pretty much doing whatever she wanted to with the ball and was playing like she was totally unafraid of engaging in long rallies but also like she was absolutely ready to strike with the big shot whenever she got the chance. Good to see.

Dani really is going to need a great start to 2013, given how many points she has to defend early next year but this is the kind of performance that will give her the confidence going into next year to give her the chance to do it.

YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!


Daniela is very charitable, she's made the tournament way less local by thrashing LiDL




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.

slow start again it seems but nicely done in the end
Great chances now to reach the final, would be a nice end of the season for Dani at least!
Hope she will be able to handle Niculescu´s game

For the first 3 or 4 service games on Daniela's side, you were right, and she lost those service games. But other than that, she was serving very well, and hitting one two combinations at will.
