Re: Wimbledon

Dinara's draw is insane. She has the 2005 champion in round 3 and the 2004 champion right after.

Re: Wimbledon

Dinara has the worst draw of anyone no doubt......just take it one match at a time....if Venus plays like she did today....Dinara can definitely take her out.

I agree if she meets Venus it would be a winnable match and she has beaten Sharapova before, although on grass it might be a different situation! She always seems to get tough draws at the slams though

Re: Wimbledon

won 75 76(7)

saved 4sps at least

she had some problems with Katerina BUT always breaks back when needed

Comparing her match vs JJ last week : she was playing worse today but it was enough

Hope she save good playing for next matches
