Closed it out on 6th MP!!!

Quite struggled cause she lead 3-1 with multiple chances to go up 4-1 and then wasted 2MP on Safina's serve at 5-3

It's soo hard to watch Safina right now... She really should get a new serve motion :o When Wimbly and Cincinnati points will come off, she'll be nowhere where she could be, but yeah then it's kind of a new start for her.

So happy! Princess Magda played so well the last 2 sets and didn't choke for once! It only took 6 MPs :rolls: but she held her nerve and got in 2 first serves at the end when it counted most!! :banana:

Good fight from Dinara but just not enough. :hug:

At least after Wimbledon her ranking will be where it should be.
Dinara is far away from good tennis.
At least her back allows her to play

Another defeat... Actually, it's not a big surprise, but it's always sad to see Dinara playing like that.

I'm very pleased with that. Magda wasn't really at her best, and obviously neither was Safina and the 1st set was pretty gruesome from both. But it did improve. By the the last set Magda was actually playing pretty well and Safina, too, after a slow start in the 3rd set put up some tough resistence in the end. Magda had to be strong serving out for it or this could easily have got away from her but the fact that she held firm will definately give her a good boost of confidence. And of course with each additional match Magda gets this week she can build on her form.

Chance for a great week here, keep it going Magda :rocker:

She just has no confidence in any of her shots anymore. It's so, so hard to watch, especially in comparison to the fantastic tennis she was playing about a year ago. Don't want to take anything away from Rybarikova, because she was mostly solid and definitely held her nerve, but Dinara looks so hopeless these days.

I hope Dinara draws Chakvetadze at Wimbledon.
That way one of them will win a match

It was sadder when she couldnt play at all.
I think these short weeks with only one match are good for her back.
Eventually she will figure out how to win a match.

I echo others sentiments. I'm not really a Dinara fan as such, but seeing her struggle so much, and go through such torture on-court, is sad. I hope she can get her head together, soon. Wasn't she RU here last year?

Well, that is the main difference between today and a year ago: She would somehow scrape through these matches. Always best at winning ugly, but obviously not at the moment.

Well, now she has to work really hard, I hope she'll be close to the top again.

Well Ivanovic actually beat 4 top 40 players in a row in Rome (three of them top 20). Considering Sharapova hasn't beaten a single top 40 player all year that's not bad going. :shrug:

um, maria has two titles this year, whereas ivanovic has, wait for it, zero :rolleyes:.

seriously, why the big deal about this top 40 thing? in the end, i think i'm safe in saying that titles matter more to most fans.

OMG, I watched the first set and up to 2-2 in the second at it was a horror show.

However, Rybarikova was so shit I don't know how she turned it around.

Dinara was playing bad but it still looked like she'd win because Rybarikova was awful!

Ehh, Dinara. :help: I don't know whether to be surprised or mad. Not to discredit her Wimbledon SF last year because it was a fantastic effort, but her game is just not suited to the grass. :hug: Either way, I thought she'd still be able to defeat Magda, as good as she is on the grass :shrug:

Awesome job Magda :yeah:

I don't know how she managed to do that, but congrats to her.

I would have never expected her level to get better because when I was watching it seemed all her backhands down the line were going into the bottom of the net.

I used to like Dinara so much. When she was younger, she just went out and smacked the ball. It could be brainless sometimes, or dull, or erratic, but it could also be lovely. Big depth and topspin. Then, when she had her momentous rise in 2008, she was consistently fantastic off the ground. She made tennis look so easy. She went on that run during the summer when the WTA needed someone - she was there to collect the trophies while everyone else was busy sleeping or sucking. Her serve looked pretty good too, in no way a huge liability. Near the end of the fall of 2008, her form dropped back down and she was not winning or making the final of every tournament.

And then when she came back from the off-season in 2009, she just wasn't the same. Her tennis wasn't smooth and easy anymore. And her serve. :tape: I still remember watching her matches at the Hopman Cup and observing her very visible tension on the court during matches. I think it was a combination of physical exhaustion from the season before and mental exhaustion from the pressure - placed on her by her and by everyone else - to win a Grand Slam. She recovered a bit with her clay season, but then failed again in the last stage in Paris, which was even more heartbreaking because of her good form going in, and since then her game been a fast-sinking concrete ship. Her groundstrokes will probably never be as good as they were circa summer 2008. Every little thing has become so mental for her. She's overthinking all of her shots, and she won't ever be able to win like that. Sometimes the less you think, the better you do.

When Safina had enough self-confidence she won a lot of tight matches, came back from behind one time after the other. Now that the self-confidence is gone, she can't win these matches anymore. She's not playing that bad but missing at the wrong times.

Really sad result for Safina :-(

This !
It's exactly how it was for Dinara before Berlin 2008 ! She was losing tight matches that she should have , could have won . It's all about confidence , and well her fitness condition still sucks at the moment :lol:

Safina's game was all manner of fug yesterday. Can barely turn and change direction, and her groundstrokes look clunkier than ever.

Rybarikova was hardly compensating with her 'flowing' game:tape:

it's so weird how when a player starts losing all the time people start to get romantic ideas about how they used to be.
