Define "Convincingly"

Probably her 7-5 6-2 win over (Q)Morigami at Amelia Island would be my vote.

Lindsay Davenport - Anna Smashnova - Lisa Raymond - Sandrine Testud - Paola Suarez - Amelie Mauresmo - Virginia Ruano-Pascual - Nadia Petrova - Chanda Rubin - Cara Black - Tathiana Garbin - Anne Kremer - Monica Seles - Fabiola Zuluaga - Maria Sanchez-Lorenzo - Amanda Coetzer - Rita Grande - Meghann Shaughnessy - Magui Serna - Nathalie Dechy - Kim Clijsters - Elena Tatarkova - Maria Sharapova - Alicia Molik - Julia Vakulenko - Elena Likhovtseva - Anastasia Myskina - Emilie Loit

7-5 6-2 over a qualifier is not "Convincingly"

"Gee, Quinn... I hope that little foray of yours into Geekland just now is the result of heat exhaustion, and not an unpleasant side effect of all that tutoring. I mean, you're not turning into a brain, are you?" -- Sandi

No, Morigami had 4-2 in that set and Daniela struggled through most of it until late in the second set

I would say her 6-2 6-3 win over Mandula in Indian Wells....so long ago

I was at that match. I wouldn't say that was "convincingly." Morigami should have won that first set. Either way, I remember it not being a great performance from Dani.

I said define "convincingly" - looking at scorelines, that's the best one for a while.

I didn't say I had any clue what I was talking about considering it was a little vague

Convincingly = without struggling, a straight set win which is never in doubt.

Probably her 6-1 6-2(or was it 6-2 6-1? ) win over Magui Serna last year in the Fed Cup finals.

She seems to be falling off the radar a bit. It's too bad; she's a very talented player and I thought she would be able to challenge the top players a bit more.

I still think Daniela has a lot that she will do this year anyways. She will surprise us all.

quite a lot of players have a bad year or a bad spell after their breakthrough year. clijsters had one the first half of last year although she had an injury for most of that so it's debateable. henin also had some troubles last year. dementieva had this problem. comeback at the us open and if she is still having the same trouble then we can say she is falling off the radar.

I love Dani, but this bad? Her weight problem shouldn't be causing her to have tight tight matches with qualifiers, when she is technically ranked in the top 10. This isn't men's tennis. That kind of upset isn't supposed to happen. A loss to a top 50 player, fine, but how many of them has it been this year? Come on, Dani, start from scratch. What is so sad is that the poor girl is working so hard on so many things at once - no one can possibly be supergirl. I don't expect her to even give Kim a challenge tomorrow, but if she can hang in there to boost some confidence, perhaps things are beginning to look up.
