D. Hantuchova def. E. Callens 57 64 63

Great match from Els! She's really been making the top names work!

Still, Dani reaches the quarters

Els saved 6 matchpoints, and was very close on saving the 7th

Too bad, but she played phenomenal

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

An amazing match! Lots of winners from both, but more from Els, who was really aggressive with her basekline groundstrokes.

Dani was listless to start with, but fought back in 2nd and 3rd sets, with some amazing serving quality in the third. Dani had more service winners - over 30 (more than 7 games worth!)

However Els made far more Aces with 15 (4 in one game)

A really good match from Els. Sad to see her lose after all that. Dani really had to fight to win this.

I hope Els takes confidence from this match. She can play some tennis!

Els is the best! Great match Elske!

without a doubt the best match of the tournament so far

Els will be ranked much higher than her current 70, if this kind of wonderful play continues in 2003! Another Belgian force in the making.

Again, Daniela is not winning in a convincing way!!! She better gets into another gear!!! Otherwise, I'll see her titleless in the whole year of 2003!!!

I'm surprised Els Callesn is not ranked higher, she is a very high quality player, judging from her few matches that i have seen as well as her doubles play. She will no doubt move up in the future. very clever game. such accurate shot making. great change of direction as well.
