View Full Version : Daniela's current form is reminiscent of the form she showed before IW......

Before Indian Wells started, Daniela had lost in early rounds in her previous two or three tournament, so I don't think form is a huge factor.
Her lead up to this tournament is pretty much the same as IW.

I'm not saying that Daniela has the Hingis match in the bag, but if she plays well, a good three set win isn't out of the question.

Remember, Hingis went into that final on fire.....killing Seles, and Daniela entered the final on the back of a hard fought, but not great win over Gagliardi, so current form doesn't matter to much.

I would be plesently stunned if Daniela beats Martina 2 and 4 again, but funnier things have happened.

I am hoping for a nice tight 3 set win to Daniela, say 6-3, 4-6, 6-3.
But I want Martina to play well this time, and still lose...;) so there wont be the excuse of, "Martina didn't play her game!".

But then again, if Martina plays badly, and Daniela wins, I'll take that too.

Good Luck Daniela......and all my lucky goes to you for this match as well.

A hug for you.

As I said on another thread, I wish this was the final.

Hope you're right, Aura. If Martina wins, which I think she will, I hope she goes on to win the tournament. But it'd be sooooooo cool if beautiful DANI kept going here.

GO DANIELA! :kiss: :kiss: :kiss:

Martina had already won IW (in her mind).
Martina chose a suicide tactic against Daniela.
Martina didn't perform the tactic nearly as good as she would have had to.
Daniela played good and punished Martina for her errors.

I don't think Martina will chose the same tactic again. If she does, I don't think she'll perform it as badly as she did in IW. And most importantly, I don't believe Martina will give up without a fight this time when it doesn't work as easily as she has expected.

So, I don't think Daniela's form will make a big difference, Martina will win easily, because she simply is a much better player than Daniela.
