Well done Dinara.
Let's take out the first title of the year & first grass title;)
Final will be tough though!

Jun 23rd, 2006, 05:13 PM
She plays Michaella Krajicek... not sure at all what to think of that!

COME OOOON DINA!

Krajicek seems to be really on right now. Plus she'll have the mad home country support. :unsure:
I still think Dinara will get her first title though! (knock on wood of course ;) )

Hey folks! Dinara gave an autograph session today at Wimbledon (Tuesday).
Unfortunately, I missed most of it, and the security is so tight at Wimby I
wasn't able to get near her (I was watching the Henman match on court 1.
I figured I should try to experience what the UK public experiences
each year with Henman. Man, it's like having a heart attack, watching him.)

Anyway, back to Safina: she looked like she'd just come off the practice court,
but I mised that as well II'm just not very good at Wimbledon yet.)

But I will try to see if I can find her tomorrow. Wish me luck! this is much
more difficult than at the small tournaments (no surprise there.)

Good luck mpcardenas! It's nice of you to be doing this for us :D

Dinara plays Craybas tomorrow. Go Dinara! :bounce:

OK, court 3... I think I saw fans waiting for players outside that court
the other day, so hopefully I can find her after her match today
(and hopefully I can see her as well! I was in court 2 yesterday for
the Kuznetsova match, and that was crazy. It doesn't help that
I'm 5'2"--very hard to see from the free standing area.)

Wow that match was waaay too close for Dinara - 36 75 75 over Craybas.
Great that she pulled it out though. :bounce:
Next up Washington.

Too close for comfort....:unsure:
Glad she fought it out.

Go Dina!! :bounce:

This was amazing. She fought so hard, and it worked. There was a bunch of
us who were cheering for her, and she really enjoyed that, I think. I yelled,"Vamos!"
at her in the 3rd set, and she looked right at me, and yelled, "Vamos!" back. She
kept telling herself, "Fight!"

She was upset at the chair official, because some calls were going against Safina,
yet were overruled for Craybas (so it seemed even more unfair.)

But she kept it together, as you know, and pulled off the 2nd set. In the 3rd set,
Craybas had medical treatment, and then at each break she'd get more treatment.
I thought it was too bad, because Dinara had built up tremendous momentum
right before Craybas called the trainer. We really started cheering for Dinara then;
I told her as she walked by, "You can do this," and she kept herself motivated. (as you
can tell I'm still excited about the match, 2 hours later!)

Alright, I should try to sleep. But what a wonderful way for my Wimbledon trip to
end, with a fantastic, fiery match from Safina.
