yes, she is #1, people always gonna say "she should win it easily" and "this is cakewalk for her"... because of her position.
but you don't have to say that "she is gonna win for sure", that would be stupid, but it would be stupid to thinking like "hope she'll win a match. or two." too.

i would say, she has to prove a certain level in her position. and that is QF or SF at least. yes there are some match what she must win ANY DAY becase she is #1. should we shit our pants because of some qualifier? come on...

R2: Vinci or Q? qualis really strong here, but come on...
R3: MJMS, Dushi, Peng, Cibu? so many world beater again.
QF: Sveta/Bartoli/Kim? Sveta didn't played since Wimb. Bartoli who knows... she had her 15 minutes fame last week. Kim? do you think she could win 3 match in her first torunament? the rest?
SF: Venus? yeah, hard one. but that is final-four, not first round.

geez, something is wrong here, i'm the most optimistic right now... :help:

PersephoneDisco
Aug 8th, 2009, 10:29 PM
I've just slapped myself and I'm beginning to see sense :p You're right Norbi, I think we were all stunned cos Dina didn't even bow out in the QF stage, let alone SF :p That's been her level of standard for the past few months :shrug: Time to turn a new page in Cincy :)

just a little cockyness. :p Cake is kinda fearless, i respect that very much. but she always flies under radar, and if she wouldn't be so arrogant sometimes, nobody would care who she is.
and yes, Dina needs some attitude like Marion - without the obvious antics...

Finally i see the draw !!! :bounce:

The easiest draw seems to be Elena's part but she must be careful Cornet might be on her way :scared: ( not nice i knooow ) .

The real #1 and the one who should be #1 because of her record against her , have a chance to meet in the QF ! If they both go that far i have a feeling that Ai Sugiyama will upset Serena and Maria Kirilenko will take care of JJ :shrug:

Don't wanna say anything about Dina's though even if i agree with Norbi( it's scary he seems to be always right these days :eek: )

What I don't get is that in the US we have this tennis channel (that you have to pay extra for by the way) and they rarely show live matches except the slams and the finals of some smaller tourneys. They are showing Davis/Fed Cup re-runs or some special about a tennis city or a documentary about some retired player or a match from last month. Ughh! It is so frustrating when I know great matches are on (like Safin/Monfils last night) and I have to watch a stream. :(

Did you manage to watch Marats match yesterday? It was on bet365 but I don't know if Americans can view it.
They're not showing montreal? TTV is a big fail for a lot of people. Coverage has sucked for a long while and will continue to do so until they change it. Until that blessed day, it's better to not waste any emotional energy :p

Actually 5 a.m is also good enough for me, i can wake up early, catch her match then head for my classes, but i can never wake up in the middle of the night, like from 2 to 4 or such timings, could never do it during exams also:rolleyes:, completely leaves me drowsy and ruins my day:(

I love Venus but today I'm rooting for Flavia because I really want her to enter the top 10 next week. Though I'm thinking that Flavia does not have chance.

Every tournament needs to be "the Dina open" Portoroz spoiled us :p

...
The first sign of morning is gray and alarming
It's so disappointing the day has come so soon
While the rest of the world greets the day and feels new
I will push it away just like I always do, I will be
Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming,
Your real world away

Only beautiful, beautiful bright eyes, lie
Only beautiful, beautiful bright eyes cry
Late morning lullaby
Late morning lullaby

I would darken my window so I can fall asleep
While the critics frown down on the hours

Crushing performance by Dinara. If a player meets this much of resistance on her way to the final of Top Tier event with elite draw, no wonder she is #1..

It was pleasure watching it with Nastya Myskina announcing it along with some male comment on Russian TV..

Nastya, as always insightful.

Male announcer: She is leading comfortably. Why don't she try something new, like coming to net?
Nastya: Listen, this is Tier I semifinal, not a practice match, she has a game plan, and it is working. Why should she change anything?

Male announcer: Do you remember playing here?
Nastya: Yeah, I played here once, I remember .. Lost to Serena, I believe , quickly. Then discovered there is a great amusement park here. That's the only thing I remembher

Male announcer: Watching this, I am not sure I understand all talks about Dinara's #1
Nastya: You know, the world is full of people that have absolutely nothing to do, They have to talk about something..

And then she continued about Jankovic , which is a separate story on its own..



Nastya :worship: and big :lol: at the last one !

How do you know if somebody gave you bad rep?
The same way you give a good rep, just click on disapprove;) and comment.

:haha: A Serena fan gave me a bad rep because of what I said earlier about all the WS fans who rave on Dinara in GM :lol:

What would a Serena fan be doing in the Domik? :hehehe:

:haha: That's so ridiculous. Now apart from trolling the GM they have decided to troll players forums too :rolleyes:

i'm telling you i'm sure most of the messages they post is full of :bs: concerning Dina instead of talk concerning the real #1 :shrug: It makes me wonder who they love most :spit:

I know that Ashi ;) What I meant how do you check if somebody gave it to you. I mean I always give good reps but I'm too lazy to write comments. I found out that I have a lot of good reps but I have no idea who gave them to me, so is there a way to know that:p

:o that was pathetic, she just did what she always does. This is not too encouraging going into the USO.

and you wonder why they call her pathetic? :(

why oh why she has to do this after some good match? wtf was this PUSHING again? she did nothing to win this match.

I hope this was her biggest final choke in the USO Series :hysteric: It's more painful than LA.

at least we didn't have to see LA. Hopefully this is the last time that we see this Dina for the rest of the year.

She messed things up in the final, but she'll bounce back. I actually now believe she might win the US open this year :shrug:

Caralenko
Aug 16th, 2009, 09:53 PM
I did, until LA and this :shrug: Hope she can at least do better at Toronto. She still picks up points for a final, let's hope the USO gives her a fair draw.

she didn't choke like she did in GS finals or against WS. she just let her demons out...It's been a while I haven't seen her on Marat mode.

Yeah, she was self-destructive, both in her mind and physically...

Unfortunately so do I Cami but I'm going to just hope that she can defend her points and anything else will be just great.

Looking on the bright side of this win, Toronto starts next week and they are airing it everyday from Monday to the final so we will at least be able to see her early round matches.

i'm over it ! i just started laughing again while reading you guys still believing that she can win the USO , not because i think you're fooling yourselves but because i agree too :haha:

toronto is starting tomorrow i can't wait to see her play again ! what pissed me off about that match tonight was that after playing sooo well in the last two matches she totally lost her game ! there's only two points i can recall that were as good as her level the past matches , one being a dropshot .

If Serena can lose badly and win a slam afterwards so can Dina :spit: ;)

again and again and again... whats wrong with her? whats lurking in her mind, that she can't do nothing sometimes? "i couldn't play my game, blah, blah..." again and again. why?
this was not her first final... JJ not scarier then Kim. she wasn't tired. than why?
i can't believe the "she is Safin" shit. thats a lame reason.

i know, i'm boring, but i just can't get over it...

You're not boring Norbi , you're just a broken record ;) but i'd like to be pissed like you i always think that i get over it too fast :shrug:

What help me tonight not to be to crushed by her loss is because of the way she played the last two matches , it was really incredible ! There's no reason that she cannot do it all over again ! i mean i had accepted the way she played during Portoroz and while following the scoreboards that i'll just have to deal with it and realise that her game is far from getting better but this week it did so i remain hopefull :)

I'm just glad she put in a great performance against Flavia, an inform player :shrug: Now the viewers now how awesome she can play and how it can all mean nothing in the final :rolls: Tennis, it's all on what side of the bed you wake up from :p

I was on holiday for a week and only watched the clijsters match before the final and i couldnt believe the change in her
she was just AMAZING :eek: against clijsters with the whole positivity
whatever she did to be that positive and keep being positive she should do it all the time
and then what really annoyed me was that i thought "wow after the kim and flavia match, jelena shouldnt be too much harder" since jankovic gets easily distracted and calls for trainer all the time
:help:then why did she, whos had a crap year by her standards, and who has publically voiced a lack of motivation, decide to turn her game on against dina?

soz just venting :confused:

Poor Dina.. :sad:. I got to watch all of the match on TV and couldn't believe how she lost it. I was actually glad that JJ beat Elena D becuase I thought she would be no problem for Dina! She definitely pulled a "Safin" and let her emotions get the better of her. Here's hoping for a win in Canada!

I think Jelena needed it more anyway, she'll most likely get another Oudin/Cirstea/Bartoli type loss in the USO :sobbing:
