Watching her on a livestream vs Paszek, she is a total mess. She looks like an club player.

No wonder why she isn't winning matches, after watching her how is she in the top 50?

It's sad to see her play like that.

In Melbourne, I think she played the best tennis of her life. i was stunned by the way she played, it was amazing, I hoped she could keep this very high level.

Hope she finds that form again and she'll be top5

I was wondering when other people would catch up with me. :lol:

Hantuchova has always been, and will always been, a crappy tennis player. Just like Chakvetadze. The quicker people realise this, the better. I guess I'm just lightyears ahead of everyone else, huh? :o

This is the typical type of delusional comment I've come to expect from Daniela fans.

I've often found when criticising her that they comeback with "when she is on" (which, apparently is never) she is such a "clean-ball striker" and can hit winners all over the place bla bla bla.

NO. 1.) She is never on.

2.) I don't even think this "on" or "A game" actually exists anywhere.

She sucks. Get over it.

Apart from Indian Wells, but that is only because she owns it. They can't let the owner of the tournament play badly.

If you really watch tennis then you would know this is tennis language, being a clean striker of the ball, the set up is right and the ball is hit from the centre of the racquet not late or off the frame, foot work is together and taking either the ball early or just at the right point with the swing, as you should know if this is not right the ball can fly long or wide. Maybe you need to pay attention.

D.H can hit winner all over the show, se has a great b.h up the line and it is clean fluid motion, it s great shot, she puts all the weight into that shot and it almost never comes back best seen i think or hard court.

There is such a thing as being on an A game, again don't you pay attention to tennis, if player didn't have their A game they would lose a whole lot of times, hence when they are on their A game they win not just by great scoreline but their movement is great, striking the ball well, serving well and seeing their opponents tactics like a football, eeking out their opponents weak spots and best creating great winners.

D.H Indian Wella run was such that, she was moving well, serving well everything that we know she has was working, problem is D.H is not consistent enough to go deep in every tournament or even win a slam. She is very patchy and that is what will stop her from being in the top ten for a full year and i doubt she will ever getinto the top 5, it a level her tennis just doesn't have.

Know the game before you comment on it :cool:

You didn't display any of the tennis knowledge if you don't understand simple tennis jargon. Its not a question of what other people know it was you that didn't believe there is such a thing as A game and i explained it too you.

Venus vs D.H 9-0
Serena vs D.H 6-1
Sharapova vs D.H 7-1
Kuznetsova vs D.H 6-4
Davenport vs D.H 7-0

it's very true, she really can NOT keep up with the top 10.
She'll always be a great Top 11-30 performer and i'm sure most of us would be thrilled to be at that level.

She's such a terrible player that she got 1200+ points between Bali 2007 and Australian Open 2008. Please, stop calling us delusional. We all know she isn't good enough to be number 1 or even a consistent top 5 player (or maybe she actually can if she keeps up her best form for a long time, with all the weak opponents atm).
It's currently tough for her to regain her best level after a serious injury. She will be back. She will lose most of the points she got one year ago, but she still has good days in front of her and will win other tournaments.

How is 6-4 a bad record??? :lol:
Dani won all the big ones except 4 easnorne.

the othere are bad though

Danis play is not suited to Kim, MaSha and Venus.

She plays like Linds so is harrd 4 her. Its Linds without the serve

So Disrespectful
Sep 14th, 2008, 09:31 AM
Another thing about Daniela's record against those players is that she experienced a series of personal problems leading to a long period of poor form. From 2003-2005 especially, she was playing far below her potential (2002, 2007, early 2008). I'm not saying that her matches played during that time span should be discredited, I'm just saying that those three years make her record against the top players appear worse than it really should be.

When a person calls a former top five player with multiple tier I titles and a slam semifinal to her name mediocre, what does that say they think about 99% of the tour? Your opinion of Penneta, Garbin, Craybas, Gullickson, Frankova or Aiko (etc) must be very poor. That's not even touching on your own self-worth as a recreational player.

Hantuchova is NOT a crappy player. Neither is Chakvetadze. Hantuchova has beautiful angles that she manipulates, she has a good serve and is a darn better tennis player than YOU are. Chakvetadze has amazing court smarts and very solid groundstrokes (of course they've been ruined by Robert Lansdorp, but still) and she has the 10 most aces of any player this seasn. Considering her height, the fact that she has more aces than many 6-footers is much more impressive than you. Not every player can be a Serena Williams. Just because they aren't your faves doesn't mean you can diss them with no basis whatsoever. And asserting that you are lightyears ahead of everyone else clearly shows that you need :help:.

This is the typical type of delusional comment I've come to expect from Daniela fans.

Please explain how she can own the tournament when she never invested a cent in Pacific Life shares. :help:

You want to see her hit the ball cleanly? Watch the 2007 Linz final. And the first set of the AO SF. She was amazing. And you can just shut the fuck up. :mad:

but i think, new season (or end of season) will be better... this season is for her passed ...

If she continues to play like this throughout the Fall, the problem for Daniela next year will be her facing much stiffer opposition in early rounds due to her lower ranking -- high ranking is very helpful in getting deep in the draws. If so, she would have to come back really strong to fight her way back to be again around #10.

Daniela has a lot of points stacked up one after the other to defend. :tape: Hopefully she finds some form quickly.
She's 24th/ 25th in the race and almost half of her points come from her Australian open semi; without them she'd be ranked 50 :sad:

She is a professional tennis player its not about suiting its about winning and losing and has been on the losing side to a lot of players who have either been in the top 10 or are currently in the top ten.
You say she plays like Lindsay even though Lindsay has cleaned up on her too 7-0. She doesn't have confidence in herself and or her tennis, it comes and goes, since winning Indian Wells she ahs had patch perfomances instead of kicking on from there she laid low, losing to people she really should beat like Sprem who is 296, Kleybenova 42, Groenofeld 141 etc . Her movement has improved some, but her shots can fly when she is having a bad day. I mean when she played Serena last year even though sereba was badily injured she still lost, i couldn't believe she couldn't use the drop shot and make Serena run or even just move her about, that shows mentally she didn't want to win the match.

She's over 25. She's won three tournaments her whole career. She's only made one slam semi in 31 tries. This is the same Hantuchova.

At her best, she's not as good as the elite players, but she give them a run. On an off day, she loses to players outside the hundred, and looks bad doing it.

simplydeep
Sep 15th, 2008, 12:59 AM
Thing is Hantuchova has the skills to be a better player, she plays some wonderful angles and great drop shots wonderful set up of the b.h dtl shot, but can't string great perfomances together, i really do think it is mroe mental than her just playing bad tennis. 3 titles is pretty poor, she had been as high is 5 in the world and last year worked her way up the rankings only to lose the momentum. Any ways i hope she can get it together she s a great player and an interesting one to watch

Let us be frank here for a second; the emboldened comment is the only reason Daniela has fans, surely?

And rightly so. But it is comments like that and the fandom generated from Daniela's looks alone that make all "this hating" on Hantuchova very necessary indeed. So, ye, thanks.
