I like this draw. She had to get a top 8 seed in the 3rd round and she has drawn the 8th seed Daniela. Then a possible QF with Petrova. The draw is very top heavy imo so hopefully Dinara can take advantage.

That's too bad, Patty's been struggling a bit as of late and I think Dinara would have a good chance of beating her. Nadia's going to be tougher... I think she'll get by Daniela though.
