Sydney 2007

Dinara starts against Pratt, the winner plays Kim. No doubles this week.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Sydney 2007

Dinara won the first set 6-4, Pratt won the second 6-3 and Pratt is serving at 1-1 in the second. Maybe she is tired from her long matches at the Gold Coast?

Re: Sydney 2007

Dinara lost 6-4 3-6 2-6.
Dinara shouldn't have played Sydney. I've no doubt fatigue played a factor in this loss. She looked spent in the doubles final on Saturday. Dinara should have gone to Melbourne and had a few light days in recovery before building up again. Dinara needs to be sensible with her schedule. Medical Fatigue Syndrome doesn't just dissappear.

Re: Sydney 2007

Well if she has worn herself out, at least she has quite a few days rest and she might not have to play until Day 2 of the AO.

Good luck in Melbourne Dinara. Hope to see you there

Re: Sydney 2007

Well, at least the haters are having a happy time now, so good for them

Probably fatigue from last week, is the only explanation. In any other normal circumstance she should not lose to a Pratt.
Nice for Pratt though. Tough she meets Kim now

Go and rest Dinara.

Re: Sydney 2007

It's no big deal. Now she has time to rest before Melbourne, which is much more important.

You should look for her anyway. Sometimes the players stay
in the area and practice there.
