With Dinara out of the Beijing draw, she has a week to recover after her third Tier I title of the year.

Expect a tough draw and lots of russians battling for the title.

Following her win, Mauresmo played down her chances against Safina.

"Dinara is in great shape and she obviously is the favourite in our match," she told a news conference.

hmm i have a soft spot for my favorite french player, she could be tricky but safina should cruise through in order to make her intentions known to everyone

Oct 8th, 2008, 09:16 PM
OMG! what on earth was safina doing?
she shouldnt have won that match really against any one else who served and volleyed too.
It was the first match where i thought for the most of it old safina was playing it. I was gonna write oh my two favs playing against each other that will be though and i can see it easily going 3 sets but i didnt wanna jinx it, guess it didnt matter if i wrote it, still went to 3 sets!!!!!
Krajan will give her a BIG talk to, hopefully. It was really bewildering to watch, her serve was diabolical! 64 unforced errors!!!! she went mad after every point she lost, she played way too over the top, too much margin for ever, she didnt really calm down until she won the match, she wanted to shorten down the points but thats what amelie doesnt do, lots of angles and spin and safina couldnt deal with it and lost the points. I cant believe she played ok and lost the first set in a tiebreaker (while serving for it 5-3) played RUBBISH during the second and WON IT! oh dear, thats my rant over and hopefully she will CALM down. Girl needs to learn how to meditate

JJ is used to this schedule now, plus she hasn't gone as deep in as many tournaments as Dinara. Not to mention, the whole reason Jelena got to #1 now is because she was so tired at this point in the season last year that she has like no points to defend whatsoever (she ended up not winning a single match at YEC :help: ). Dinara will learn from how tired she is right now. I hope. :p

Yeah youre right, but dinara won lots of matches this year... So she played many more matches than last year and like other players... I think JJ is tired too... For sure... She takes in every match a time out... So I hope Dinara fight in this tournament and will rest for the YEC
