Dominik is absolutely on fire today..... He hits winners corner by corner, side by side!!! He only allows Coria to hit one winner for the whole match!!! He is absolutely the dominator of the match!!!

Daniela gets her job done at the end!! She gets so nervous at the beginning of the match, but keeps her nerves down and hangs in there at the end..... A huge relief on her face after she wins the match!! And a long time no see bright smile on her face after Dominik wins his singles match when they wins the Hopman Cup title!!!

Congrats, Slovakia Republic!!!! They really earn the win this year & deserve it 100%!!! :yeah:

Dominik was outstanding today.

Dani got off to a slow start and didn't play her best but certainly showed flashes of brilliance. I was impressed how well she can hot off forehand and backhand.

Looks like coria was nursing an injury, not to take anything away from Hrbarty, he played brilliant, no wonder he was one of the very few to beat federer last year. Argetina just withdrew from the mixed doubles.

I posted this in the CP also

Congrats to Dani.

I dunno if anyone heard the Australian commentary but Fred Stolle (Aussie tennis legend) was commenting on how 2005 could be a big year for Dani.

Fred was one of the people who was helping Elena Dementieva with her serve late last year and he made some interesting comments about how Dani could really use her physical height to transform her serve into a major weapon. He said that because the height is already there, all she would need to do is get more shoulder rotation, and snap the wrist on contact a little, and he said that she could have a serve not dissimilar to Molik's.

Fred made similar comments about Elena earlier in the year about how she could improve her serve, and then a few months later he offered to give her coaching on the serve. Maybe he will do the same for Dani. He loves to help people improve their game.

With a day started so badly (Justine and Jen injuries) I am happy there is at least one good news. Good work Daniela! I am happy she seems finally happy on the court and wins against top players!

Great work team Slovakia! :worship:

Well guys, I was seeing the match here again
Dani didn't play well :rolleyes:
Dulko was great in 1º SET but then she fall over I don't know how and like the commentator said: "Hantuchova won without play well. She cause she's a fighter, she fight for every point"
But Dom :eek: He was amazing!!
Poor Coria, he tried but was to Great
Dom said that when he playe for his country he can play his best tennis ;)

Amazing effort from both players! Dani because she wasnt playing her best, and probably playing her worst, yet she still won, and Dominik because he played awesome! He never gave Coria a chance and secured the tie in blistering style.

It really meant a lot to them and you could see they were so happy. I love how Dominik invited all the fans down to take a picture with them after the ceremony, he has always shown a lot of appreciation for his fans.

Congrats to the Slovakians, and I was pulling for Argentina, so this is heart felt. Her match againwt Gesela was the best she has played in awhile, and Dulko was great, in the first set.

Props to her, too. She played a good match, but blew a couple of shots down the stretch. But she will have her day, she has the makings of a terriffic player.

And FYI, I have always been a Fred Stolle fan. I think he is a wonderful commentator and probably would be a terriffic coach!

Well done Dani and Dominik :bounce:

So great to see Daniela play well this week especially against Dulko. After losing the first set 6-1 she would have faded at times last year, but she fought really well today and looks in great shape again. It's great to see her so positive :) Good luck this year Dani - I think it could be a really good one :D

Personally, I don't think slovakia deserves this win... it should've been germany in the final instead of slovakia

Finally some good news for Dani!!

*Wondering how Germany could have been in the final instead of Slovakia when Germany was in the other group with Russia, Italy and Argentina. :scratch: *

Dominic&Daniela played great. They laughed and had a great time playing double. Dulko 's so adorable. She smiled a lot and screamed when she missed.<BTW, she played with her brother because Coria 's injured.>
I had a good time watching the match. They were smiling, so was I.
P.s. Masha should occastionally smile on the court because she will be more lovely to watch. She is so tense despite playing exhibition match. :(

Jan 9th, 2005, 02:04 AM
OMG YAY Hant and Dominik!!! I love the DH's!! Hant def Gisela without playing well? It's good that Hant can still win even without playing well because Gisela is a very high quality player that I respect when she's on the court.

I love how one time Dominik grabbed a towel marked "DH" and then Daniela said it was her towel and Dominik said "I thought DH stands for my initials" and then Daniela says "my initials are DH too" How funny is that?
