Every match is now so important for Dani if she wants to play at the YEC. Well done! :)

Excellent win for Daniela, in the past these are types of matches that she would have lost. No matter whether she makes the YEC or not, she's made big strides this year and will hopefully at least hang onto the top 10 place she deserves :)

What ? Daniela was the mentally strong one in the tiebreakers ?!
What's this world coming to ?!

Would love to see the winner-UE count on this one. Can't say it looked like an attractive match-up on paper and every time I've seen Dinara from the summer on the matches have been ugly as hell (v Pin in Toronto, v Henin in New York, v Elena in Moscow). Good win for Dani, indeed this is the type of match that's usually a banana skin for her.

LOL, anyone knows when it was the last time this scoreline happened on womens tour?

What ? Daniela was the mentally strong one in the tiebreakers ?!

In fact Daniela rarely loses in tiebreaks. I've been following her since she was a teenager and I can say this is one thing she does well. This year including this match she is 13-4 in breakers. ;) Federer would be proud. :p
The problem is that she gets herself there even when it's not quite necessary.

Well done Daniela!!!! great top20 win, great mental toughness! seems like another typical entertaining Daniela match, rarely fails to keep us on the edge of our seats in matches against the top players and to come out with a win is a tremendous effort.
