i wrote revival coz i did that for kiri last year and she made it to the quarters :) and im realllly hoping that is what is gonna happen with our little fighter. i dont want anyone to get the wrong impression and think that because i wrote "make it past the first round" like im belittling dinara or anything negative. i just she wins her first match so she has the confidence that if she puts her mind to it she can win...perhaps against a top 20 player too.

ok im rambling, but im sincerely hoping she gets the best and easiest draw she can have at the little hiccup in her career. easy opponent (LL) please.

and someone PLEASE tell me she's playing dubs with a good doubles player. so at least i have a bit of confidence to know that she will be in melbourne a bit longer so that i can finally get her autograph and a pic with her. 3rd year im going to the AO and 3rd straight yr im trying to get her autograph:hysteric:

man i wish she still had Z as her coach.

Dinara, save the fucking tour from the stomach inducing Kim hype by sending her out round 1. This could really be the turning point if she can somehow gut this out. Also, if she could somehow gut this out she has a chance to go far here.

If she loses won't this be 6 match losing streak and she'll be out of the top 100? :(

If she loses she will prbly have to start doing qualies. That might be the best thing for her. She needs to knock that rust off. She clearly has some form but it's so impossible to work on her game when she draws such ridiculous opponents in round 1.

She just really needs *one* good break in the draw to get her game back. God knows Ana Ivanoic got some favorable draws when her rank was sinking.

Even when she starts playing qualies, she'll probably draw seeds. :p Luckily, she might be able to handle, say, Sofia Arvidsson. :p

Seriously, and her fans used to complain so much about how horrible her luck was. :rolleyes: I feel so bad for Dinara, she did what she was "supposed" to do and everything-- dropping back to play smaller tournaments-- and she's just gotten hosed on the draws.

yeah,agree..Maybe it's not bad to play some qualifies...she needs to get her form back step by step..and I hope she also can play doubles..to play more matches is not a bad thing for her at the moment..I still cant believe she could meet #2,1,3 seed at first round at the begining of the new season!it's amazing:(:help::bigcry:

Dinara seriously must have pissed off the wrong bitch in a former lifetime. Horrible luck with draws.

Kim lost today to Na after leading 5-0 so if Dinara can just keep fighting at all times she might do it. Aside from that Bartoli loss, many of her losses since clay season haven't been straight forward. She may lose but she doesn't go down easy.

So unlucky with the draw. Kim will have gone away and worked really hard after her poor showing against Na yesterday. Probably, Kim will be totally prepared and play a much better match than yesterday. Realistically... Dina needs to make a wish on a falling star, because she'll need supernatural help. But, in the long run, even if she loses, which is likely, it doesn't mean she can't comeback. Also, a decent scoreline could lift her confidence even if it is in a losing cause. After dropping out of the top 100 she may finally begin to turn things around. Gotta think positive. After all there is absolutely no pressure on her against Kim.

Still haven't forgotten about Dinarik's back concerns and pray for the best there and,if she's healthy,I hope that her rugged determination will help push her thru this tough stretch....We're with you all the way,Dinara!:hug:VAMOS!!!:bounce:

I felt this shit based on logic. Pete Bodo is a moron; he also wrote that Vera has a cakewalk draw because Pavs is the next highest seed in her quarter. :weirdo: So he's an asshole and he's illiterate. :p

But, especially after losing 6-0, 6-1 to Marion, I was pretty sure this was going to be a double bagel unless Kim was really, really off.

i was hoping for 3 games by logic, since Kim has 1-2 minutes blackouts regularly, when she hits 2 DF + miss 1-2 shots. looks like I got fooled.

against Marion there was at least couple close games, and that was 1hour 30 min, so the scoreline doesn't say everything.

I'm kind of concerned. Even though she was losing matches before she never rolled over like the last two matches.

I haven't been her biggest fan all the time but we really need her back because she's just a character. At least she always played inspired tennis unlike a certain current #1.

goldenlox
Jan 18th, 2011, 01:06 PM
Dinara played some decent points, but her forehand is too erratic, and other parts of her game are just sloppy. She has to clean that up.
Her movement looks worse than what it used to be. I think that's her biggest problem moving forward

swim4life227
Jan 18th, 2011, 01:29 PM
The service motion is really abbreviated. It was never that good but never this bad.

Also, I just checked she is #117 in the world after this. :( No points to defend until the USO Series except one QF at Stuttgart. I think she should drop down and play some lower level events. Acapulco could be a good event. It's clay (her favorite surface) and not many top players go there because it's before clay season.

Then again Flavia Pennetta always plays there so she'll probably draw her round 1.

Couldn't watch the match because it was the middle of the night here,but I haven't seen many comments related to Dinara's EFFORT: Is she battling hard but just playing poorly or does she look like she's only half-assing it out there?Also,does she appear to be visibly affected by her back or is she moving freely enough to reasonably compete?

....Dinara,it'd be too easy and cowardly to give up on you--even if you weren't giving 100%(not saying that's the case).If you DO still have that desire within you,then keep on fighting somehow.I'll say again that we've seen much greater comeback longshots who regained their form.Women's tennis has missed you and will keep missing you cuz you're one-of-a-kind:hug:.....DAVAI DINARIK!!!

hard to say anything, it was so quick. (won 16 pts and 4 of them were in the last game when she went from 15-40 to A-40, but then lost 3 and gsm.)
and i saw nothing problem with her back, but i can't say 100% sure.

the effort is... i think is there. But she just couldn't do anything. He was sitting in a little 30y old VW while Kim was driving a brand new Ferrari...
I mean she can build up points if the opponent let her. But even if Kim hit a semi-decent ball ANYWHERE, she was in trouble, because she was slow in every department, really rusty. Like her court-half was shown in slowmotion while Kim's court was in fullspeed in the TV.
Many times the ball went directly to her, but her slow leg and her long swing-span prevented her to do anything than a loopy pushing. she had no time to get ready and couldn't execute any harder shot.
She had 3-4 nice winners today, like she had couple against Bartoli and Wickmayer, but she can't get to that position many times if the opponent semi-aggressive at least.
Serve is kinda useless, Kim was killing left and right.
Return of serve... actually she has no such thing. :tape:

Might be oversimplifying things,but it seems like so much of this originated from a lack of athletic self-belief....She was steamrolling through the 2009 RG draw--and would've won at that rate--and then she got worse and worse the closer she got to the title.How different it all might've been had she mentally shown up for that match with Kuzy.We know that Sveta is a high-quality player...but Dinara led the H2H,had beaten her just recently...it was her most winnable Slam final(even more than 2008 RG where she was only a Slam rookie)....If Dinarik wins that match,she brushes off the pressure and criticism--and doesn't rush to return from her back injury in an effort to prove herself,making life so much harder since then

....If any coach can free Dinara from her demons of doubt in unlocking her championship potential,then we'll have to build him/her a small shrine

She is not so unlucky, and it's only about 20% luck that she needs to fix things now.

Throwing rocks at Zeljko's head will not fix anything; her current form and problems are not his fault. Dinara, and Dinara alone, is the common denominator in all the poor decisions made in the last 18 months.
