Doubt it. She has Sydney QF and AO 4R to defend at the beginning of the year, and then the clay season will come.

Daniela isn't too fond of the clay.

If you are a fan of Daniela you should know that in her case it can go either way: she can play good in one tournament and then she can give a crap performance in another. Simply you can never be sure. Believe me: I would like her to be in the top10 even today but thinking about her position in the ranking in June doesn't make sense.

Its up to her. She goes through ebs and flows you never know whats coming. She is definately capable of getting in the top ten by wimbly but you just never know :shrug:

No. Danni is just too slow to be a top player. This week, she took advantage of a tired field at the end of a long season, on her best surface. She'll stay at around ranking 15-20 which is not bad.

i do hope you are right, but it IS a little early to predict.

i remember after AO victory over serena earlier this year daniela seemed so positive, said she had new belief in herself, will not doubt herself anymore, blah blah blah, then she managed to not win 2 matches in a row for like 6 months...

it seems to me like she was working on her strength and weight training earlier in the year (AO) but then turned skinny again by mid-year. anyone else notice this? i think putting on a little more weight helped her? but i hope she knows what's best for her...

after beating serena at AO, she only managed to win 3 consecutive matches 3 times: french open, wimbledon, and zurich. i think if she can play more consistently more often, (and maybe not play so many tourneys??) she'll be higher in the rankings...

Except of this week, it was HORRIBLE year for Daniela...the only reason she stayed in the top 20 area was that 2005 also was poor year so she didn't lose many points, otherwise she was out of the top 30....

Dani beat Kuznetsova who sucks indoors and here we go... she is Top 10 quality again. :rolleyes:
Please, she hasn't been at Slams QF for like 3 (or 4?) years. When did she beat Henin/Clijsters/Davenport etc. last time? She only beat:
2004 - Mauresmo in Eastbourne (and Amelie always plays like crap there), 2005 - Dementieva in LA (and Lena could lose to anyone on her day)
2006 - Kuznetsova in Zurich (and Sveta is hopeless indoors).
That's all.
Anyway, whom is she going to replace in Top 10?

Sure she can do it, but we have to see what happens.

Hopefully she can keep up this good form.

As Jay Leno said before, don't make threads like this in the GM, because it's only asking for haters to come in and bash her.

She's beaten Schnyder (a top ten player, just so you know ;)) many times, and I think it's very plausible to think Daniela could replace someone like Safina in the top ten. I'm not saying I think she will, but if she has more weeks like this (to be sure, this is only the second time she's had two top Ten wins in one tournament), then it's definitely not impossible.

i'm not a big dani fan but i have to call you out on this bullshit.
it doesn't matter AT ALL what she did in 2005. 2006 is almost over, and she's ACCUMULATED enough points to stay well inside the top 20 (maybe top15). being able to defend points means nothing.

Have you actually seen the match against Sveta? Daniela played very good there... And look at the way she played against Maria, really impressive tennis.
The girl has a big talent and believe it or not she is really a top10 material, her only problem is her mentality.
And please stop with those excuses saying that the top players were in crap form when Daniela defeated them, a win is a win.
And if you are talking about Estbourne 04 Daniela played there great and her win against Amelie was fully deserved.

Yes, Hantuchova played very good tennis in Zurich. It's true. But the truth also is that Kuznetsova plays horrible indoors. And I don't make excuses. A win is a win, indeed. So when Daniela has scored only 3 or 4 significant wins over last 3 years and failed to win singles title for almost 5 years why do I have to believe she is going to break back into Top 10? What has she achieved since Australian Open 2003 to be a top-tenner? Nothing.
Ok, Safina and Schnyder are weak links in Top 10 but how about Vaidisova, Jankovic and Chakvetadze? All of them perform much better than Daniela and they are much more complete players than Dani, IMO.

Out of those 4 players IMO Daniela has the most complete game. I know that Dani's result don't live up to her potential but perhaps now it's the time it'll all change.

dani can reach the top 10 by wimbledon if she consistently has results like she has had in zurich (especially in tier II & above level events)

but that will be extremely challenging 4 her as she still needs 2 work on a few kinks in her game like the movement & 2 add some topspin & slice to create variety. plus there r other players like vaidisova, ivanovic, chakvetadze & even li na have better transition games than dani & can easily get 2 the top 10 first b4 her. but we shall wait & see what happens.

It's not an "opinion" if you can't support it, it is only a baseless assertion. Out those 4 players, Hantu has the LEAST complete game. And that is why those other 3 players are going to be Top 10 and Hantu is not.

I think she can do it but its all mental when shes on shes really great and just came up short today, Wasnt she saying in some interview that she s training at a new academy(Im not sure I only caught the end) but at least shes trying to make progress and hopefully she can one day fulfill her potential. I dont really see how people think Vaidisova and Ivanovic are so much better than Daniella????

Earlier this summer you said Daniela would never beat a top 10 player again and since then she has three times.

So keep making your predicitons, FEF! :wavey:

She's still had a better career than *cough*. ;)

ok... nicole and safina have been in top 10...

w/ respect to all, Hantuchova definitely has a legitimate chance to make top 10

making the bottom top 10 esp. when some of the top players are in injury imo is great but its not THAT special. making it and staying there for a while is another thing though.

NyCPsU
Oct 23rd, 2006, 03:14 AM
to be honest i think she might..of course it all depends on the daniela that shows up after this but with the change in ranking points next year that might help out dani. She always steps it up at the big events and is considerably consistent in the grand slams. With those events being worth more it might give her the chance to get back there. Of course it will be hard to pass up anna c and jankovic who both have next to nothing to defend for a while but if her play today is a sign of things to come i wouldnt exactly "laugh" at this thread :)

dany.p
Oct 23rd, 2006, 03:28 AM
i'd love for hantuchova to be top 10, but this has happened before. She always has a really good tournament after which everyone expects her to get to the top 10, but she just ends up going back to her old loosing ways.

Its gonna take more then one good tournament for dani to be back, but this is a good start.

So Disrespectful
Oct 23rd, 2006, 06:54 AM
If this tournament has given her the confidence boost she needed, then yes. She wasn't struggling as much to close out matches this week, so that's an improvement. I don't want to get my hopes up, Zurich was very promising, but she has to believe in herself before she can have better results.

Wayn77
Oct 23rd, 2006, 04:24 PM
Never been in Dani's fan-club but some of you are forgetting she was once a top 5 player - you don't get there without having serious game and weapons, something she has always had. I like what I have seen in her game the last couple of weeks, it might come to nothing or it could be a turning point back into the top 10. The top players themselves seem to have the utmost respect for Dani's game. What was it Sharapova's coach said at the end of the first set after the Russian had just hammered Dani 6-1 'watch out for Dani at the start of the second - she will come at you hard.' Her form in Zurich was promising, I hope it continues and she is back in the top 10.

You can see how some people's opinions can change. I like it, it's funny. For example AnnaK 4ever wrote in this thread that Chakvetadze had a complete game, or at least more complete than Daniela. Whereas yesterday he wrote that she is a one dimensional player with predictable shots. :lol:
