Tennis star Hantuchova loses weight and form

Tennis star Hantuchova loses weight and form
Even competitors worry about Slovakian

Berlin - Her optical attractions first fell into the eye: infinitely long legs, full lips and high cheekbones. "She sees from as well as Anna Kournikowa", the "Daily Mail" Wimbledon raved over the Slovak Daniela Hantuchova, "with the big difference, in 2002: She can play tennis." Within few months mixed the 20-year old one, that had been trained in the tennis camp of Nick Bollettieri in Bradenton once, the world chart from below on. Momentarily, Hantuchova ranks on place nine.

End of April first almost had defeated the talented Slovak the German Fedcup-Team in the solo run; no miracle therefore, that she is traded with the German Open in Berlin as one of the favorites.

At her appearance against the Austrian Barbara Schett, that she won with difficulty yesterday with 6:3, 4:6, 6:3, however changed fans and experts gazes procured: "She hardly still has physical substance", a friendly Slovak complained. Daniela Hantuchova comes no more like a switch-slim models but slimmed and therefore occurred. Hantuchova, 186 centimeters long, brings "not once more 50 kilograms" on the scales, team colleague Ludmila Cervanova worried that "in Indian Wells, she even still was five kilograms more easily. Speculations about the dramatic weight loss already become, in the official press leader of the WTA-Tour, Hantuchova boasts her weight about 56 kilograms, in the tennis circus ever wilder. From physical or psychologically conditional Bulimie is the speech: Hantuchova admittedly eats several meals daily, among them pound-wise chocolate, however she/it could not hold the food with herself. "I am fit and healthy", Hantuchova said however defiant and white that nobody believes her.

For more than two months, the performances of the Shootingstars of the last season got markedly worse - almost parallel to her rapid weight loss. In Indian Wells, where she/it had celebrated the first spectacular tournament victory in 2002, she lost surprisingly in round four against the South African jogger Amanda Coetzer, one week later, the early end came Alicia Molik in Miami against the Australian outsider. Even more bitterly, the appearance got in Charleston, where the American Wildcard-Starterin Ashley Harkleroad in 101. the WTA-Rangliste, Hantuchova in the quarterfinal abservierte.

In the Baden Ettenheim, on the small stage of the Fed-Cup-Vergleichs against Germany, Hantuchova avoided further missteps Marlene Weing?rtner and Anca Barna only thanks to the carelessness of the German competitors. One didn't use the favor of the hour against Hantuchova, the German Fed-Cup-Teamchef annoyed Klaus Eberhard for itself, finally the Top-Ten-players distant far from "her normal form.

Tennis legend Martina Navratilova, that as an official mentor of the WTA-Tour will supply Hantuchova to the side, suspects, that she/it didn't increase the racket by her/its/their person: "The young players are pushed madly fast into the footlights today, there one must be very much careful that she/it themselves and comes to terms with this the personal surroundings and processes halfway normally." Hantuchova and Navratilova should have to discuss some at the edge of the German Open.

"however she/it could not hold the food with herself."

if this means what I think that it means then there is no denying anymore and I wish she gets help soon!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams

what does could not "hold the food with herself" mean?

is she puking it out
or is it just that she's not having proper digestion

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

I'm guessing boulemia, and i agree with Irma

We are what we are - forever live or die
Don't tell me how to act - how to be - how to live
I am what I am from beginning to the end

Tennisstar Hantuchova verliert an Gewicht und Form
Selbst Konkurrentinnen sorgen sich um Slowakin
von Jörg Allmeroth

Berlin - Zuerst fielen ihre optischen Reize ins Auge: unendlich lange Beine, volle Lippen und hohe Wangenknochen. "Sie sieht so gut aus wie Anna Kurnikowa", schwärmte die "Daily Mail" Wimbledon 2002 über die Slowakin Daniela Hantuchova, "mit dem großen Unterschied: Sie kann Tennis spielen."


Innerhalb weniger Monate mischte die 20-Jährige, die einst im Tenniscamp von Nick Bollettieri in Bradenton ausgebildet worden war, von unten die Weltrangliste auf. Momentan rangiert Hantuchova auf Platz neun.


Ende April erst hatte die talentierte Slowakin das deutsche Fedcup-Team fast im Alleingang besiegt; kein Wunder also, dass sie bei den German Open in Berlin als eine der Favoritinnen gehandelt wird.


Bei ihrem Auftritt gegen die Österreicherin Barbara Schett jedoch, den sie gestern mühsam mit 6:3, 4:6, 6:3 gewann, wechselten Fans und Experten besorgte Blicke: "Sie hat kaum noch körperliche Substanz", klagte eine befreundete Slowakin. Daniela Hantuchova kommt nicht mehr wie ein gertenschlankes Model, sondern abgemagert und eingefallen daher. "Nicht mal mehr 50 Kilogramm" bringe Hantuchova, 186 Zentimeter lang, auf die Waage, sorgte sich Teamkollegin Ludmila Cervanowa, "in Indian Wells war sie sogar noch fünf Kilogramm leichter". Schon werden Spekulationen über den dramatischen Gewichtsverlust - im offiziellen Presseführer der WTA-Tour gibt Hantuchova ihr Gewicht mit 56 Kilogramm an - im Tenniszirkus immer wilder. Von körperlich oder psychologisch bedingter Bulimie ist die Rede: Hantuchova esse zwar mehrere Mahlzeiten täglich, darunter pfundweise Schokolade, doch sie könne die Nahrung nicht bei sich halten. "Ich bin fit und gesund", sagte Hantuchova jedoch trotzig und weiß, dass niemand ihr glaubt.


Seit mehr als zwei Monaten haben sich die Leistungen des Shootingstars der vergangenen Saison merklich verschlechtert - fast parallel zu ihrem rasanten Gewichtsverlust. In Indian Wells, wo sie 2002 den ersten spektakulären Turniersieg gefeiert hatte, verlor sie überraschend in Runde vier gegen die südafrikanische Dauerläuferin Amanda Coetzer, eine Woche später kam in Miami das frühe Aus gegen die australische Außenseiterin Alicia Molik. Noch bitterer geriet der Auftritt in Charleston, wo die amerikanische Wildcard-Starterin Ashley Harkleroad (101. der WTA-Rangliste) Hantuchova im Viertelfinale abservierte.


Im badischen Ettenheim, auf der kleinen Bühne des Fed-Cup-Vergleichs gegen Deutschland, vermied Hantuchova weitere Fehltritte nur dank der Nachlässigkeit der deutschen Konkurrentinnen Marlene Weingärtner und Anca Barna. Man habe die Gunst der Stunde gegen Hantuchova nicht genutzt, ärgerte sich der deutsche Fed-Cup-Teamchef Klaus Eberhard, schließlich sei die Top-Ten-Spielerin weit von "ihrer normalen Form entfernt".


Tennislegende Martina Navratilova, die Hantuchova als offizielle Mentorin der WTA-Tour zur Seite gestellt ist, vermutet, dass sie dem Rummel um ihre Person nicht gewachsen ist: "Die jungen Spielerinnen werden heute wahnsinnig schnell ins Rampenlicht gedrängt, da muss man sehr aufpassen, dass sie selbst und das persönliche Umfeld das verkraften und halbwegs normal verarbeiten." Hantuchova und Navratilova dürften am Rande der German Open einiges zu bereden haben.

It probably means that no matter how much she eats, it doesn't seem to make her gain weight.

I keep telling you guys that that girl is anorex (sp). Something is definitly wrong with Dani why can't her parents and coach see that are these people blind and why are they sending her out there on the tennis court. She will colapse one day right in front out our eyes. The girl needs help badly and fast.

Irma, volgens mij is het: "Ik wou dat ik 2 hondjes was, dan konden WE samen spelen."
Zeer goeie quote trouwens.

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!
26.03.2009: More Kim years to come!

The article says there are wild rumours about bulimia.

She is said to weight less than 50 kg, a "dramatic loss of weight". She looks "haggard and cavernous".

Apparently Chris Bradnam, British Eurosport commentator and very close friend of Nigel Sears (Daniela's coach), said on air yesterday that the 'problem' is being sorted and that fans should not worry. He didn't say what the 'problem' was but it's almost certain that he was repeating what Nigel had asked him to say.

I think I agree with ptkten's translation:
"It probably means that no matter how much she eats, it doesn't seem to make her gain weight."

It's not a massive weight loss, Daniela is naturally thin, she said that she has grown even taller since last year and the effect of that on a naturally thin athlete (maybe with a high metabolism) can be a problem with muscle development etc.

Plus Daniela played more tennis in 2002 than any other player (fact) - that is bound to have an effect on a young player who had almost no time off during the 'break' between 2002 and 2003.

Hagar
het is een gedichtje van Godfried Bomans en die heeft het zo opgeschreven.

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

That's not a translation, because that's not what the article says.
