Hantuchova shouldn't have sacked Nigel Sears - did she ever explain the reason why she did it?

yeah i agree with you.she just said she needed someone new to listen to which means to me she wanted to get better,but i think nigel just fit her perfectly although i wasn't a huge fan of him.

Nothing new, she has a nice run and we all think she's back, then she has a horrible loss and everybody's shocked. The same old over and over again.

3 of the last 4, Mat. Keep it going, Slender Slovak. ;)

Elena has been playing well lately. Why is it just about Daniela? :shrug: Seriously.

Because Daniela is a grasscourter that just come off a solid result at the FO...

Yes, but it was clay, not grass. And Elena isn't neccessarily chopped liver either.

I get that point, but people seem to be discounting that Elena has been playing well. :shrug:

Personally, i like Daniela much more on a hardcourt. Also her results are always going to be up and down. Also, Likhotsveva may not have any star power but she is certainly a threat on the court.

She hasn't won a single tournament bigger than a Tier III since 2002, never made a Slam final in her entire career, and only one SF. She just plays a lot. (So does Petrova, but she has 4 "Tier II or better" titles, all since last fall, and hasn't been on the Tour nearly as long as the Strange Suissie).

up!

Likohvtseva is a decent player on grass, isn't she?

All Daniela has done is win Indian Wells. Nothing else that anyone will ever remember her for.

I like Daniela, but her career is seriously lacking compared to Patty's.

OK, Dani has been a disappointment to her fans since then (especially the morons who give her the Kournikova treatment and worship her appearance, not her game) but she's a few years younger than PP, so she could still improve.

no way. Danni is middle-aged in terms of tennis years, she is limited by her physique, and her game is pretty much set in stone. Patty is overall clearly the better player of the two.

Really because I think a lot of people, especially her fellow Slovaks, will remember her for leading Slovakia to the Fed Cup title in 2002 with stellar play. I also think people will remember her for winning all four GS's in mixed doubles as she is the only one of like 5 to do so.

Daniela is 23, she still has time to do some more things.

A lot of people thought that about Molik too and look what happened from 2004-early 2005. And with Daniela, nothing is ever set in stone. I think you should know that by now. :wavey: If she catches fire she will do damage.

It's never too late. It's not like she's 29 years old. :rolleyes:

well, her feet are set in stone, which is why she makes so many unforced groundstroke errors.

Molik was a late bloomer (still playing challengers at age 21-22) who had a huge serve and a lot of room for improvement. Danni peaked early on. She might be able to stay Top 20 but she will never again be as good as she was in '02.

actually it's because she has so little margin for error on her groundstrokes because there basicly flat,and wind also plays a major factor with her strokes because there so long and lanky.

Sure, being able to be faster would help anyone make less UE's, but most of her's are because her game is risky, not her feet. Flat, long groundstrokes are risky business.

Davenport and Sharapova also have flat, long groundstrokes. But their footwork is SO much better than Hantuchova's, and that is what makes them superior players.

They also have more power than Daniela does so that makes them look faster. Neither of them have as long of legs as Daniela does, which makes it harder.

Since IW'02 she have never failed to bring smile on my face by failing to win anothe tournament. It might change when she starts playing Tier III or lesser tournies tough...

Oh Daniela will always be a mental case... Sometimes she gives me the impression she has no ambition, no figthing spirit, no willingness ( does this word exist ? ) to win. A thing is sure, she wastes her talent but I keep cheering her though.

She should comeback to Quebec City and kick ass :) Last year she would have won the tournament if she would have play :sad:
