Dinara in Rome

Let's hope Dinara can carry this amazing form into Rome. She really is playing amazing on the clay

Extremely tough first round vs Azarenka, who she is playing in the SF of Berlin
2R: will be a Q
3R: Ivanovic

lets not get thinking too far ahead

Re: Dinara in Rome

Azarenka again
Well at least Dinara can take the mental edge into the match after today. But Rome will be new, Dinara can't expect anything, Vika will want revenge.

Very tough draw. But first a Tier I final in Berlin to play.

I hope Dinara isn't too tired in Rome. How she is physically will probably determine how far she goes.

Re: Dinara in Rome

Vika looked pretty injured in Berlin, and having only a few days to get to Rome and play the first match, Vika may withdraw

Re: Dinara in Rome

Oh I didn't know that. What is her injury?
Shame I like Vika, but she has had a tough year with injuries, if she could stay fit her ranking would be higher.

Re: Dinara in Rome

Dinara is now on a 5 match winning streak, with 3 of those top 10 players including Henin and Serena.

With Ivanovic totally off par, she can be a huge threat in this tournament. Providing she gets a later 1st round match (Tues or Weds) and has enough rest.

She has something with her leg. In the double after the semifinal against Dinara she had strapping on her thigh and she had to retire after a couple of games. So she probably can't play in Rome.

Re: Dinara in Rome

Great call.
Dinara needs to be fit for RG. Take some days of rest then hit the practice courts.
Dinara did say "back inury" as the reason for withdrawal but as players have to give a reason who knows how serious it is Hopefully not too bad

Re: Dinara in Rome

Well, that's a pitty but she can probably better recover for Roland Garros now.

Re: Dinara in Rome

No surprises really. A good choice. Wouldn't be good if she lost to some Q in 2R because of too much play.

See in the RG
