Please Dinara beat Kim!

Ok my reasons for being a safina supporter are shaky ( she is related to marat and thus has royal blood imo) but having watched many matches now I love her game and find her very appealing. I love her smile!
Anyway she has been hovering around the top 16-20 mark for a while now and I think it's time she beat a top player again and made it to the final stages of a tier 1, like how she did at Moscow six months back. Surely she has enough experience now to do even better or do you think it will take a little while longer? And what do you think is stopping her making that breakthrough?

Safina played like CRAP against Camerin.

Kim played like CRAP, but is still better than non-crappy-Safina.

Next to that, Kim OWNS Safina... never even lost a set to the girl.

It won't happen. Mark my words.

I would love nothing more. However, I'm not going to expect too much. But as long as Kim doesn't win Rome and get to no. 1, I guess I'll be happy.

A good first set from Dinara and helped by kim's sloppy play.
Safina should have taken oppurtunities to break in first game and should have put away that smash.
Still not realistically expecting a win but if anyone saw that cross court backhand winner Dinara just played, well, I think she is capable of it. And then a double fault!
Who Knows what will happen?!

And now a break!
I can't watch!
Shame about the crowd- no cheers at all it seems!
Still, Go Dinara!
