Great to hear Daniela keeps on winning.

She's really learning to pull through on those 3 set matches, it's very impressive!

Daniela's definately got her groove back, hit some neat forehands down the line for winners.

horrible match but i'm happy for dani that she pulled out because a loss may have put her back at square 1 whereas this win may really make a difference

Great stuff Danka, just promise you wont play to many first sets like that again ok..

She really had to fight today because her game was a bit off, makes me proud that she can fight and win even when she's not playing that well..:)

She eventually tasted blood then went for it. Gesila was keying on her forehand with success, but Dani brought down the errors, plus upped her first serve percentage. Very vocal at times during the match, fist pumps, loud "come on"s. A loud scream at the end. Had no trouble at all serving out the match. Three in a row Dani. Good work. Keep it up. :D

Gisela :sad: She doesn't seem to be able to maintain a high level of play throughout a match (in singles, at least).

Dani played so bad in this match. She said she was nervous because she wanted to win so badly, and in the first set could not put a ball into play. In the 2nd set she improved a little but still played bad, most of her groundstrokes were long but she got more first serves in and at the end Gise choked when it got tight and gave Dani the set. In the 3rd set it was pretty much the same as the 2nd, but Dani played better, and Gise played well until about 4-4. It was a greating fighting effort from Dani, she was nowhere near her best but still managed to scrape through.
