Hantuchova opens Slovakia's Fed Cup defence against Germany

Bratislava, April 15

World number nine Daniela Hantuchova will lead Slovakia's Fed Cup defence against Germany in the first round in Ettenheim, Germany from April 26-27.
Hantuchova spearheaded her team to the 2002 Fed Cup trophy when they became the ninth country to win the title with a 3-1 victory over Spain.

Team captain Tomas Malik confirmed their lineup as 60th-ranked Henrieta Nagyova, Lubomira Kurhajcova, ranked 109th, and Eva Fislova, 130th, but added that world number 58 Janette Husarova had to withdraw because of a knee injury.

This is the third meeting between the two nations with Germany having won both previous ties.

It must be her favourite :)

Yes, she looks very pretty in it. Having said that, she'd look very pretty in a potato sack. She's very fashion conscious as she says in 'Ace', quote - " I'm very interested in fashion. I wouldn't mind modelling again. It's nice when you hear people talking about the off-court stuff, as long as they talk about my tennis just as much. It's a balance".

Well team, I think we've got the balance just right. :D

Can anyone think of an occasion when Dani had a fashion nightmare? :eek: I can't.

Uh oh, Husarova is out. I just hope she gets back from the injury if ever they cross the First Round which I think they can win. She was really instrumental in last year's Fed Cup and Dani's gonna have her hands full if she's not there.

...except for that shocking moment when I had a look at the Amelia results on the teletext... :sad: :sad: But let's just not talk about it, maybe I'll express my sentiments on that one later - however, I do hope that you all recovered, especially Graham, cos you seemed to be really depressed judging from your posts. Don't worry too much, she'll be fine :cool: :wavey:

And well, the decision who to cheer for in the Fed Cup isn't that difficult, of course it will be Dani and her Slovakian girls :) Sorry German girls, but it has become impossible for me to cheer for Dani's opponents :p ;)

Some Fed Cup news: Just visited the Fedcup-Ettenheim HP and found out that the Slovakian team had their first training in Ettenheim today. I'm not sure if Dani has arrived already as well, if so, she's going to celebrate her birthday here in Germany :worship: The website also said that you could go there for free and watch the training :eek: If just Ettenheim weren't at the other end of Germany for me... :sad:
Just imagine: Easter monday, best weather and having a little walk to the tennis court to watch Dani and the girls practising FOR FREE !!

moogle you lucky dog. Hop on the next bus and go there. Dont forget to bring a camera! On topic, I just hope they get through this first round without Husarova. This IS the Fed Cup after all... it doesn't really matter if Dani's on the top 10 since its a team game. It'll take some contributions from people other than Dani to win this.

It could simply be the fact that as the highest-ranked player on the Slovak team, they want her in singles - which is truly her best game - where she HAS to be favored to win.

I think it's simply a team strategy.

Not only that, whilst clay drains better than hardcourts, there's no way to dry them, so you've got to give it more time before you can get back to play.

Hantuchova Fights Back to Level Tie at 1-1 in Ettenheim

Daniela Hantuchova, who celebrated her 20th birthday at the Europa Park on Wednesday, had something else to celebrate today in Ettenheim, as she came back from one set down to win a tense battle against Marlene Weingartner 26 76(5) 75. In a rain-delayed match, Hantuchova eventually clinched this vital rubber in two hours 22 minutes to level the tie at 1-1.

Yesterday afternoon it was Weingartner who was by far the more solid player. The first set was all about the German No. 2 and World No. 79. She had a dream start to the match, hitting winners from all over the court. Unlike her Slovak opponent, Weingartner had no problems adapting to the cold conditions on court and from the very first game was hitting amazing baseline winners.

She was at her most deadly on return, brutally punishing the faltering Hantuchova serve. With a number of audacious winners, she soon found herself up 4-1 in the first set. The Slovak No. 1 and World No. 9 had no answer to the penetrating returns coming from the Weingartner racquet and by the end of the fifth game looked down and out.

However as the German stepped up to serve for a 5-1 lead, the heavens opened and gale force winds along with heavy rainfall forced ITF Referee Alan Mills to abandon play for the day.

Stepping back out on court on Sunday morning, Weingartner lost her first service game to give Hantuchova the faintest of chances of getting back into the set. However, the Slovak failed to break again and the German served out the set 62.

Just when it seemed that the German would cruise to an easy victory in the second set, Hantuchova suddenly started to cut down on unforced errors and began hitting some impressive winners of her own. In a long and hard fought second set, it was the young Slovak who clinched a close tiebreak 7-5.

The deciding set was much like the second with both players treating the spectators to some amazing tennis. After battling hard for almost an hour, Hantuchova miraculously broke serve to win a scintillating set of tennis 75.

This was a big win for the 20-year-old Slovak, who has now kept her country’s hopes for a second Fed Cup title alive and well. Under Fed Cup regulations she has a mininum of one hour rest before she plays the first of the reverse singles matches.

She faces German No. 1, Anca Barna, another player whom she has not yet met at a tour level event.

Play got underway at 13:30 local time, but another rain shower has forced play to be halted once again with Barna having taken the first set 62, and the scores level at 2-2 in the second.

Comeback Queen Hantuchova Puts Slovaks in Front

Daniela Hantuchova won her second match of the day to put the Slovak Republic 2-1 up against Germany in their Fed Cup World Group first round tie in Ettenheim. The Slovak No. 1 defeated Anca Barna 26 63 61, following her earlier 26 76(5) 75 victory over Marlene Weingartner.

:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

There's something seriously wrong with these pix. In the one with the white top, her watch and ring are on her right hand, but in the one with the lilac top (and very pretty it is if I may say so!) and the one of her celebrating, they appear to be on her left hand. Now, I don't remember reading about Dani getting engaged recently, so I can only guess that someone has either printed these back to front, or she's wearing a ring on the 'wrong' finger, or she's secretly got engaged, which obviously can't be right because I haven't got round to proposing to her yet, which also may be a bit tricky in my situation, as I'm already married!! LOL! :rolleyes:

Anyone ever noticed her wearing a ring before?

anyone know?

What a pleasure to come home from a day of tennis lessons and find out that Dani won. Thanks for cheering her on in my absence, folks.

Graham: Welcome back, and in the picture of Dani serving just below your post, you'll see that the watch and ring are indeed on her left (forward) hand. But don't worry: If you look closely in the pics, you'll see it's just a "cocktail" (read: casual) ring, not an engagement ring or anything like that.

..Joe

PS: Anyone else notice that she's not wearing her lucky necklace???

Okey dokey, but should she really be wearing a 'casual' ring on her engagement ring finger?

joegerardi
Apr 27th, 2003, 11:17 PM
Many women do.

Also, if you look at the closeup of her in the lilac shirt, note the earrings. Then, in the pic right below it, note what you can of the ring. I think it's a matching set. Maybe even the necklace she has on, but I can't confirm that, as I don't see it too clearly.

about the necklace: I noticed that Dani sometimes changes her lucky charms. I'm not completely sure but I think it was in Paris and Antwerp this year when she wore another necklace than the usual one. The Paris/Antwerp was kinda heart-shaped so I went :eek: as well when I realised that... I felt somewhat relieved when she returned to her usual necklace during the US tournaments ;)
This Fed Cup necklace now resembles the Paris/Antwerp again :confused: perhaps this changing of lucky charms is just a sort of superstition :) As far as I know many of the players are superstitious in some way.
