Daniela Hantuchova has all of the makings to be the next GWH

Hingis gone.
Davenport going.
Capriati slipping.
Seles gone in a year.



Now the commentators are starting to pump Daniela once again as the next GWH. Hey, after all she all beat a one-legged VENUS and made the #2 go three sets.
However this year VENUS played on two good legs and the match went two sets.

But, if her coach gets her on three shakes a day, along with her meals, she may gain those much needed pounds and play a losing three setter against a health VENUS one day.

Now you're taunting. Stop. Dani's fans don't deserve this.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Not really directed at Daniela or her fans.

But those commentators are seemingly unrelenting in their search to stop those two black players that it is getting quite annoying at times.

Thanks Volcana. Look who's the one who brought up race, but will be the first to cry racism in other threads.....Best of luck Venus and Serena in your next matches

Got to agree with TeeRex though if she is gonna be the next greater anything she definitely needs to gain some weight or muscle.

She lost and guess what my life goes on. As you can see I don't live on these boards. And my whole life doesnot revolve around Jennifer. But I was the better person, I wished the sisters good luck in my post, instead of trashing other players like some posters do.

... and the Williams sister don't deserve a fan like TeeRexx

And I really think Daniela's going to be a players that counts on the tour. And if she's beaten by Serena and Venus whatever ? She's not the only one.

The today match shows she doesn't play in such a lower level than Vee. She still needs to improve. Remember, Teerexx, how long it took to V & S to overcome Hingis domination so you don't have to be that arrogant.

V & S play great tennis and right now they rule but just behind are Kimmie and Dani who are becoming the real threats. And that's great for the tour too.

And... what the hell color or race have to deal with that stuff ?

GWH : Great White Hope ? I'm not familiar with that expression...Is that what it means...?? If so, why bringing the race factor ? And then you'll freak out if we mention the word Black...

cuz he is a plain old f_ckhead is old Tee Rexx...

Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.

truthfully i'm not into all this great white hope stuff. i mean is there a problem that we have african americans dominating the womens tour? currently they are the players playing the best tennis in the world and i don't see what problem colour is. the tennis is good and that is all that matters.

this thread just like the media is hyping players up wether it be juniors starting their pro career or an already pro player being given pressure to do something.

but i do think daniela is a very good player and to me she looks like the current top 10 player that has the most potential. to me it looks like she is only at 1/4 of her potential but i could be wrong. for all i know she might have no more potential.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

Gowza - Sure this is a hype thread and one of sarcasm at the frantic search to find someone to down the Williams.
Daniela is a good player, but she is way beyond the 1/4 level of development. Being 20 years old she should be about the 90% level at this time.

We wouldn't want 21 year old SERENA to improve by 75% now would we?
