Very pleased with the scoreline, this is a good way to start, Dinara! :bounce:

This was surprisingly a break fest. Both girls usually are extremely solid servers, not sure what happened. Oh well, I'll take a straight set win. :D

Ah, bad luck Sam.

You can't expect too much from her considering her overseas form last year. She won her first match, and lost to Dinara, who's a fine player. Good effort.

alot easier than expected.

I watched it and it looked a lot closer than the score. Dinara wasn;t really dominating. I was surprised how she doesn;t go to the net AT ALL. Stosur was stretched on quite a few occasions giving Dinara good put-aways if Dinara has gone to the net. Dinara just enevr did. :rolleyes: A big improvement in Dinara's game, I thought, was her being much more focused. No tantrums, no frustration - just play.

Well done, anyways!

Sam! You took a set off Nicole, you should be able to beat Safina... :sad: At least I can see that Sam is improving, the talent is definitely there. I hope Sammy can do well at Miami! :D

:sad: for sammy-baby,but what stuns me,is that dini did not go to the net at all!! :eek: as you say,shes normally very good at the net,and she has enough self-belief to do it...but no matter,she won it,and next match will be surely better!! :kiss: dini-baby!!
