I thought Alicia would win this one - perhaps she is too tired from Doha, but well done to Dani - she is very nearly back in the Top20 again.

This is great news for Venus, because she won't be too far behind Molik now, and Serena, because she has Daniela in the Quarterfinals if she were to win her R16.

I couldn't decide who I wanted to win this match, but Dani deserves it. Both have worked extremely hard but I like seeing Dani returning to 80 percent of her top form.

I am sooo glad that Daniela won that tiebreak.. she usually doesnt do well in high stress tiebreaks but she prevailed... like every point in it was a winner!! She is moving on up!! and gone are the days that her fans hope that she makes it out of the 2nd round!!! Go Daniela.. you can take out Elena.. especially after her performance today!!

I think Daniela is gaining confidence with every match now. And with staying focused in matches against top-players and beating them will really (;) ) lead her back to the top15 not only in these EuSp comments

But maybe Hantuchova could relieve some issues if she actaully lead from the beginning of the match? One day she's going to lose a heartbreaker of a match. Hopefully it won't lead her into a tailspin again.

Daniela and Alicia have a head-to-head of 3-3 now (excluding the Hopman Cups which the official stats do) and most of those were last year, so it's not like Daniela doesn't know how to win against her.

Winning 10 of the last 13 games plus a tie-break is some great play, though. :D

Can you post some words from Daniela here ? i have the Dutch Eurosport, i only can see her but not hear her. I wish i had the British Eurosport :mad:

She was only in the commentary box for a few minutes but she was generally saying how impressive Mirza is and that she was really surprised with how well she is playing. She also made an interesting comment about Sveta's serve, that it's really hard to read because she looks like she's going to serve a kick serve but then serves to the forehand.

She also said that she feels she can beat any of the top players now after her good week in Doha and her win over Alicia today.

Then when she went she said that she's like to take the opportunity to thank her fans who have stuck by her through the bad and the good times and that she's like to express how much it means to her to have that support.

Ops, sorry missed your post. Rachel pretty much captured what Daniela said. Chris commented on a point when both players were moonballing and he asked Daniela what she though, and she said 'Well I wouldn't do that for sure' and giggled away. awwww....

Firstly, I'd just like to say,

YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great win for Dani today against her nemesis Molik. That now puts the HTH to 4-5 in Molik's favour.

Secondly, I don't buy all those sob sob stories of Molik being tired. She only played one more game than Daniela in Doha, and Daniela's game was played at 1 o'clock in the morning after a long rain delay. :rolleyes: Molik should have been buzzing after reaching the final at Doha and carried that form forward to Dubai. However, Daniela is in much improved form at the moment after reaching the SF in Qatar and it was she, not Molik, who has carried that form forwards. :D

I'm very happy after this BIG win. :bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce:

Great win for Dani!
She is among a group of players it's so fun to watch WHEN they are on...like Myskina, Molik and I would say Schnyder.

Congratz to Hantuchova! I am shocked by this result?? What happened to Molik :scratch:

I don't know why you are shock and I don't see why the rants and raves about Molik.

And I had Alicia down as a major contender for this title....

Unfortunately this was the only one of the 4 matches that was on Eurosport 2 (which I can't get). Anyway here is the commentary on the ES website.


14:10 Daniela Hantuchova and Alicia Molik come out onto the centre court for their first round match...

14:19 Alicia Molik gets the match underway, the world number eight serving first, play!

14:20 Molik uses her powerful serve to good effect, closing out to love for the opening game...

14:23 From 15-30 to three points in a row for Hantuchova who closes out with a good backhand-forehand combination to opposite corners... 1-1

14:27 Molik mixes her game up, happy to come to the net or stay behind the baseline... the Adelaide-born closes out to 30 for 2-1...

14:30 DOUBLE BREAK POINT for MOLIK... Hantuchova struggling with the light breeze on service throw-up and last week's Doha finalist takes advantage, with a deep forehand return and winning volley... MOLIK BREAKS for 3-1

14:32 Molik closes out to love to confirm the break of serve for a 4-1 lead...

14:36 Hantuchova does well to hold serve... once again the world number 22 finds herself two-three feet behind the baseline, but closes out to 15 for 2-4...

14:38 Molik completes her fourth routine service game of the match, closing out to love for 5-2...

14:44 Two backhands wide of the court by Molik lets Hantuchova off the hook for a service hold to advantage... the Slovak is right to pump her fist... she trails 3-5!

14:48 DOUBLE BREAK POINT for HANTUCHOVA... Molik serving at 15-40... the Australian loses concentration momentarily as Hantuchova wins a couple of points with approaches to the net... Nigel Sears' pupil breaks with a Molik error... 4-5, back on serve!

14:52 Hantuchova is growing in confidence with every point won now, highlighted by a delicate backhand drop volley... serving at 40-0... Molik returns a forehand winner 40-15; forehand crosscourt winner by Hantuchova for 5-5!

14:54 The floodlights come on just as Molik breaks Hantuchova's run of games with a hold to 15 for 6-5...

14:58 Hantuchova closes out to 30 for 6-6...

15:02 FIRST SET TIE-BREAK: Molik to serve, forehand winner into space 1-0; Hantuchova to serve, Molik raises the level of her game and drive volleys a forehand winner 0-2; Hantuchova to serve, forehand winner 1-2; Molik to serve, smash winner 3-1; Molik to serve, Hantuchova combination winner 3-2; Hantuchova to serve, Molik snatches at a backhand 3-3; the pair change ends...

15:06 FIRST SET TIE-BREAK - 3-3: Hantuchova to serve, forehand winner 4-3; Molik to serve, unreturned serve 4-4; Molik to serve, great kicked second delivery finished with a forehand 5-4; Hantuchova to serve, rushing Molik into error 5-5; Hantuchova to serve, the Slovak nets a backhand drive 5-6; SET POINT for MOLIK, who serves, overcooks a forehand on the stretch, 6-6; the pair change ends...

15:10 FIRST SET TIE-BREAK - 6-6: Molik to serve, smash winner 7-6 SET POINT for MOLIK; Hantuchova to serve, in-out forehand winner 7-7; Hantuchova to serve, forehand volley winner 8-7; SET POINT HANTUCHOVA... Molik to serve, Hantuchova finishes the FIRST SET 7-6 (9-7) with a backhand winner!

15:17 The pair hold service games in the opening stages of the second set (Hantuchova to 30, Molik to love), 1-1

15:21 BREAK POINT for MOLIK... Hantuchova serving at 30-40... first serve long, second delivery to Molik's backhand, but the Australian runs around the serve and hits a forehand return long of the baseline, getting too close to the ball... DEUCE!

15:24 Hantuchova saves the break point and closes out for a 2-1 lead with an ACE out wide... the former world number five looks confident, but Molik won't give in easily!

15:28 Molik walks around the baseline with a scowl, no longer able to hold serve easily the Australian is having to hit closer and closer to the lines to win points... she closes out to 30 for 2-2

15:31 Molik's weakness on the backhand wing is being highlighted by Hantuchova here... the Slovak will have done her homework with Nigel Sears prior to this match... Hantuchova closes out to 15 for 3-2...

15:33 BREAK POINT for HANTUCHOVA... Molik serving at 30-40... first serve out, second delivery with interest down the middle, Hantuchova can only block the ball as it heads for her body... DEUCE!

15:37 SECOND BREAK POINT for HANTUCHOVA... Molik serving advantage point down comes to the net to volley, but Hantuchova drops a low forehand over the net and earns the BREAK for a set and 4-2 lead!

15:41 Molik is rushing her game now trying to spark herself into life, but Hantuchova remains resolute on serve and closes out to 15 for 5-2 as Molik hits another backhand out!

15:42 STATISTIC - Unforced Errors: Perhaps the tale of the match - Molik 30 to Hantuchova's 14, with just three in the second set.

15:46 DELIGHT for DANIELA HANTUCHOVA! The Slovak will be back in the Top 15 next week, taking her FIRST of TWO MATCH POINTS with Alicia Molik serving at 15-40... GAME SET MATCH 7-6 (9-7) 6-2, coming back from a 5-2 deficit in the first set! Hantuchova's smile lights up the night sky! Perhaps the first step on her return to the Top 10!

Daniela will earn 70 points for this or something like that, but most importantly, she will gain 1,000,000 million "confidence" points for this!

I have to agree I don't know why everyone is in shock. I mean Molik is a great great player, I did expect her to win but dani winning isn't big shockin news. Daniela is a very capable player and she obvioulsy played well and outplayed alicia, and well duh she's a great player...? Alicia can't win everything, i mean we're all expecting her to win win win, but she can't, shes still awesome though...:D:D:D But shes done heaps well, and I"m sure shell continue to do well, soo.. good effort alicia, good luck in next tourney, continue ur great year!

Congrats Daniela you go girl :) lol keep it up!!!!

That's a pretty damn good performance. She's been challenging some of the top players this year, but hasn't been quite able to take the win. Now she has. Good signs

Mar 2nd, 2005, 04:43 AM
i dont get y every1 sees this as a shock?! im an alicia fan and i knew she would lose simply because hantuchova can only play well, which even she has admitted, when she's not the favourite to win... and the last few times when she has beaten alicia was when she was in form and the higher-ranked opponent :rolleyes:

good luck both girls in the next tourney they play (but hopefully not against each other again ;))
