Hantuchova what was that. Brilliant start and then can't find the court. All Ajla had to do was put the ball in the middle deep and Hantuchova misses. That SP as well WTF, only Dani could.

Straight setted by Barty and Tomljanovic.

Well done to Ajla, though.

Haven't heard from her since Miami.



Danielle

No words..... She's probably one of the seeds everyone wants to draw in Melbourne next week.

Feel bad for Dani and her fans...

What a mature demeanor from Ajla out there! The serve and backhand were great today
I still think her forehand is a bit weird. Kinda loopy
No doubt she was helped immensely by Dani's mistakes, but she was cool, calm, and collected, which is what we as Ajla fans want from her!

Good luck against Keys!

You have no agency in this match. You might start to wonder if you have free will. Perhaps solipsism is true after all - is it Jankovic's world and you're simply allowed to live exist in it? It's basically existential waterboarding.

Congrats, Alja! Good serve with a smooth motion, good BH, but the FH needs a ton of work. It took awhile for it to click in Dani's head (despite Ricardo saying it pretty much everytime he came out ) that she needed to hit there all day everyday. She has a really good slice as well, it helped her in this match. Mini choke at 4-3 in the 2nd (got no 1st serves in), but she came through. Croatia coming up with some young talents

I really want Dani to do better, but she seriously is a mess. She can't sustain a high level for more than like 5 minutes. Her shot selection these days is awful and the FH is like a tragedy

Impressed by Ailja's attitude in this match. She's cool as a cucumber, did not panic when Hantuchokeva strung in a couple of games to get ahead in the second set. Her defense and shot selection is also impressive, when compared to other juniors.
But the most impressive part of her game is her serve..The ace to finish the match.
Forehand does need work though.

Daniela drew two WCs and lost both matches in straights.
Her USO pts will save her all season long but this may very well be her last.

Daniela is just going through the motions now. Maybe she can make one last run at a slam before she hangs up the racket.
