Re: At home in Rome

I read Dinara had a cold in Berlin. She has to be ready to beat Bartoli.

Re: At home in Rome

Dinara has a tough draw, and a lot of points to defend. She's in the race for the YEC, and these Tier I's are important.
Dinara and Peer play Petrova/Hantuchova

Re: At home in Rome

Dinara's section has opened up nicely for her, both Ivanovic and Li have pulled out. She'll play Kanepi in her first match

"That's not my wonder! It's just a smelly sock!"

Re: At home in Rome

Dinara should get thru to play Sveta, which would be a RG QF rematch.

Re: At home in Rome

Dinara won after a tight first set. She will have to improve, even with this soft draw.

Re: At home in Rome

2006 Rome finalist Dinara Safina limped through to the third round on Wednesday 76 62 against Estonia's Kaia Kanepi.
The Russian, seeded six this year, struggled with all aspects of her game until the last half of the second set, when she managed to string winners together. This was despite coming to Rome with solid results this year so far, including a tournament win (Gold Coast) and a final (Charleston).
Dinara said after the match that she felt "nervous" on court, which translated into an unending flow of unforced errors. When she hit a winner she followed it up by missing an open court, often when game or set point up. Her opponent likewise had trouble getting the ball in court, meaning that the match was overall of poor quality. Kanepi, ranked 61, hit more double faults than winners.
"If I keep playing like that I won't go far," said Dinara.

Good Luck vs Katerina
