View Full Version : Beijing 2R: Hantuchova def. Tanasugarn 61 06 75

She was up 3-1 in the third, leveled at 3-3, then went up 5-3, goes to 5-5, and finishes with 7-5. Easy enough, right?

Hopefully she meets Jelena in the quarterfinal, that would be a VERY intriguing match (even if Dani would lose it easy, but whatever, TII QF is good enough for me).

Tammy :bigcry:

Congrats Daniela.

Amazing 2nd set Daniela. :)

So Disrespectful
Sep 24th, 2008, 02:41 PM
Daniela picked up her level a bit in the last few games, but she should have closed it out at *5-4. Doesn't seem to be playing with much confidence, but that will return.

Sep 24th, 2008, 02:42 PM

a win is a win :)

great win,bagel it´s really awful:o
GL against Jelena!:p

Sep 24th, 2008, 02:53 PM
Somehow this match always seemed to be working its way to an ugly very depressing conclusion for Dani. Even when Dani had leads in the 3rd set they never felt secure. This had all the the hallmarks of a heartbreaker. But someone how Dani survived it. :)

Obviously Dani's game is very up and down right now but thankfully it is not all down. She is still playing some good stuff even if there is still an unlying lack of confidence. But the best thing is that whatever is happening Dani is fighting. That's important and that counts for a lot with me. Her detractors can say what they want about her but one thing they can't deny.....the girl's got heart. :inlove:

Poor Tammy, so close... :sobbing:

True. Tammy is a really nice girl and a cool very unique player. She fought hard too and it is a shame in a match like this that there has to be a loser at all.

Tammy :hug:

Sep 24th, 2008, 03:02 PM
Nice try Tammy :hug:

Sep 24th, 2008, 03:12 PM

Gawd, bagelled by Tammy...what is happening...

Sep 24th, 2008, 03:48 PM
What? She won?!
I was so sure she was gonna lose after I left when it was 5-5 in the 3rd.

Well done Dani :kiss:

Even crap, no-confidence Dani is better than most :)

I liked her game in third set..It looks that Daniela improved her game a lot since Bali...But congrats to tamarine too! Only 8 UE and 20 winner,what a stats:worship:
But I am lucky for Dani,good luck against JJ!

Sep 24th, 2008, 05:20 PM

Sep 24th, 2008, 05:28 PM
Unusual result but Daniela won and that's what matters.

This match pretty much illustrates how Dani`s year has gone. Still i`m very happy that she pulled out the win. :clap2:

Sep 24th, 2008, 07:10 PM
Great job fighting through that Dani! Good luck in the quarters!

Sep 24th, 2008, 08:47 PM
The crazy daniela scores are back!:hearts: Awh well.. at least she's not losing easily anymore.

Sep 24th, 2008, 09:03 PM
Well done, Daniela! :banana:

Way to pull it out! :yeah:

This proves how good Dulko played in first round :rolleyes:

Because a player's form never fluctuates during a tournament at all. :tape:

Sep 24th, 2008, 09:18 PM
Daniela showed us some power and smart tennis in 1st set... Besides the 1st service game oh her, in wich she got broken to love, she play an impressive 1st set. In the begining of 2nd set... I think she just get cold and lost her focus... Seem to try just to put the ball out of her court... Bad set for her... never manage to take her breakpoints and play without mind in big points... In the 3rd set she was good... but some weaknesses came out... She lost her focus on match... and get paniced... Panic...Panic...Panic.... This happen to her when she try to close out the match... No confidence to herself on critical points...She must be stonger and stronger and work a lot on her mental game...
But she won and this is the good news! I think she will give everything to beat JJ! And i think she can made it! I really believe and i know that she believe it too! It would be a super match and i hope Danka can win it!

Sep 24th, 2008, 09:22 PM

Huge congratulations for that Dani. :worship: :yeah:

as if it matters, if she had won easily you'd still criticise her, it's getting boring :yawn:

Sep 25th, 2008, 05:18 AM
good match, daniela needed a tester like that, she really moved to some balls i wouldnt of thought she'd get in that third set, and some of those winners from daniela:drool:..tammy really did fight tho, i knew it'd be a tough match considering danielas form, but tennis wouldnt be the same without danielas rollercoaster scorelines adn thats why i missed her

Sep 25th, 2008, 05:51 AM
Nice Job Daniela..if I was watching there...oh i would be so nervous..But Daniela did a great job on 3rd set.
