Dinara won 62 61 today. She will be a big favorite in round 3, then Justine.

Great win today Dina, great scoreline. She will play Ahsha Rolle next. :)

Dinara won her doubles match. She next plays an American, so it should be on a show court.
It's the last major of the year. It's time for Dinara to step up and play well.
It's been a long time since she's had a good major.

I really hope she win to play justine and make an upset :) GO dinara!

Dinara won 64 63. Next is Justine. This American she beat is very overweight. Dinara has to play better next round.
Have to cut down the ue's, and win points when Dinara gets a short ball.

A very good win today from Dinara but Justine will be... well. Yeah.
Against Justine, Dinara is 0-3. :sad: Hopefully she can dig deep for this next match up. Good luck Dinara! Courage, Dina! :)

Dinara is down 06 25. I'm watching her on the big screen, and I think she should see a dermatologist. Get her skin cleared up.
Sep 3rd, 2007, 12:43 AM
Dinara lost 06 26. I know she's working hard, she has to get more consistent.
Sep 3rd, 2007, 02:04 AM
Ugh. I'm sad she's out of the tournament now, I just wish she could have put up just a bit more of a fight for Justine. :sad:
Oh well, I'm very happy for the 4th round for Dina. :)
Dinara is in the doubles final for the 2nd straight year. That's at least $100,000

NEW YORK (Reuters) - France's Nathalie Dechy (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/136/;_ylt=AlcuISsSwIJen12ZDaWXF6cpv7YF) won her second consecutive U.S. Open women's doubles title on Sunday as she and Russian Dinara Safina (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/170/;_ylt=AlFNkTvnOHNiKNSQOG4UBq0pv7YF) beat fifth seeds Chan Yung-jan and Chuang Chia-jung of Taiwan 6-4 6-2.
The seventh seeds won a tight first set and then survived a few nerves in the second, when the Taiwan pair hit back from 5-0 to 5-2, to clinch the title.
The win gave Dechy, who won the mixed doubles at the French Open in June, her third grand slam title while it was Safina's first, having lost in the final to Dechy and Russian Vera Zvonareva (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/153/;_ylt=Am5Zd07Cb8aNSsGZc5zF9LApv7YF) 12 months ago.
"It's unbelievable," Dechy told reporters. "I was saying to my husband, Can you believe it's the second time (in a row) that I'm winning this trophy?"
Safina said their partnership came about at the last minute.
"I was supposed to play doubles with (Tatiana) Golovin, but then she got her injury," the Russian said.
"She's like, 'I'm not going to play'. I was in New Haven. (Maria) Kirilenko said to me 'I think Nathalie, she's just texted me, she wants to play doubles with me. You should text her'.
"I just texted her, just two days before. It was like, OK, let's play."
Safina said she hoped they would play together again in the future. "I would love to play with her. I had an agreement with Meghann Shaughnessy (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/141/;_ylt=AjqNljNtiCNqZRRYjIxBT2Upv7YF) to the end of the year. (But) maybe we can start from next year."
Congratulations to Dinara for her first major win, and they were a scratch pairing too!! :D :bounce: It's nice also that Marat won his first major at the US Open and now Dinara's done the same too :yeah:
