Dinara will always be too powerful for Domi :shrug: Dinara plays it well, agressive, serving great, deserved winner.

Dominika will have to take advantage of Dinara's worse form some day, or Domi has to improve her serve and be more agressive.

Good tournament, Dominika ;)

Keep it up

Hope the draw will be better for you next tournaments

Dinara demonstrates again that this season she belongs at the very Top.

I would be very surprised if she doesn't finish Top 5. For me she looks more like Top 3 at the moment.

It'll be interesting to see where Safina/Ivanovic/Dementieva end up from 3-5 this year.

265 pts. So she has nowhere to go but up.

I was a little worried about this one, so I am glad Dinara pulled through.

QF shouldn't be too much of a problem either. It is basically impossible for Dinara not to end the season in the top five, she has almost no points to defend for the rest of the season and Sveta is the only one behind her who has a chance to pass her. I am more worried about where she will end up in the 2-5 range than anything.
