The 2008 US Open!!!

Dinara won LA, Montreal and the USO series. Then she won an Olympic silver medal.
Now she plays the last major of this year. Very big tournament for Dinara, in every way, very big.

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

Can't she play any 17-32 seed in the 3R? Also, those are some very strong 17-24 seeds.

All seeded players (16) can meet any one ranked 17 below and yes those players ranked 17 -24 are very tough and very much in good form. I think there will be lots of upsets in the early rounds...hopefully Dinara's not one of them

Go Dinara! I hope she had enough time to recover properly after this exhausting Olympic week. Let's hope for a good draw and then I am sure that she'll do well.
