I know that Hantuchova is still developing into a top player, but with this scoreline and her struggle against lower ranked players...I don't think she's playing at Top Five quality yet!

nope she isn't. she was just lucky that some players didn't play at the begining of the season, and Jen just sucked too. she isn't top 5, she should be 9 or 10 at most.

I strongly believe that girl is has anorexia. Each time I think of this piece I laugh. At the U.S. Open in Daniela's interview she said that Venus had to bring her "A" game to beat her. I thought that was really funny. I am still laughing.

yeah honestly no disrespect to hantuchova fans, but honestly in my opinion she does not belong in the top 5. and indeed shes there by her results and some sort of luck, bc cappy lost early and mauresmo wasnt playing as well.she really needs to pick up her game to another level if shes to even remain in the top 6 which i doubt she will keep after indian wells.once davenport and mauresmo solidify their top 6 or top 5 ranking i doubt hantuchova will ever get there, if she goes winless(titles outside slams specifically tier 2 or tier 1 tournaments) or does not reach a slam final or semifinal which seems unlikely to happen unless she improves.after wimby or right before wimby i can see davenport dethroning most of the current top7 players, only venus and serena can beat davy consistenly.while on clay she will be vulnerable to most of the top 10 especially henin and clijsters who are good clay court players along mauresmo, but i doubt hantuchova can beat davenport even on clay which is also her weak surface.:wavey:

Dani is now 0-6 head-to-head vs. Venus. Perhaps she needs to concentrate on bringing her own A++ game before she has a chance in hell of beating Venus, LOL. Like a number of other posters here I too think that Hantuchova shouldn't be ranked above #8 or 9 based on her present woeful performance record against top 10 players. The great thing about sports is that talk is cheap. Consistent quality of performance is what counts and, oh yeah, WINNING...

Dani's A++++ Quadruple Extra Credit game isn't good enough to beat Venus... she's shown in every match against the best players that she can't step her game up.

Pam, Maryjoe, Carillo, chris and tracy worshipped Daniela during during the U.S. Open oh, she was the next best thing to challenge the W/S. All they talked about was last years AO when Venus and Daniela play and it went to 3 sets. Ofcourse we knew Venus was injured and she still could not beat her. These commentators are jokes they would say and do anything to make the W/S look bad. Another thing I hate is when the fired Chris evert from NBC) always refers to S/V as bashing the ball she keeps talking about finess(sp) why can't she realize that times has change, everything has evolve nothing stays the same; The days of this finess games are over. Who wants to see someone hitting a ball at 50 mph? how boring.

Nor in the top ten. I doubt she'll ever win a grand slam either. LOL!

That Leslie bitch is an idiot.

talk about being way too harsh on somebody. have a look at where daniela was one year ago and then compare it to where she is today. Tell me whether you think she's been improving. Seems that way to me.

maybe she doesn't belong in the top five yet, but the rankings would disagree with that. And after a while, you just have to go with the actual facts. The rankings say she's #5, she's #5. Doesn't matter if Jennifer's sucked, doesn't matter if Amelie or Lindsay was hurt.

Someone who got to the QF of the last three Grand Slams, and won a Tier I doesnt deserve to be in the top ten? Who outside the top ten has had a better year than Daniela and deserves to be there instead? That has to be one of the most stupid things i've read today, and theres been a lot of that! :rolleyes:

funnie thing is, venus and dani have never played at the usopen, it was serena that trounced her at thte 2002 wimbledon and usopens, and then venus followed it up at Antwerp! but really she is just another clijsters. she right now has nothing on venus or serena.
