Dinara was great! Fought very hard & was very aggressive.

Martina's movement was great, but her serve still a bit of a weakness..

Congratulations Dinara!

Dinara is so cute lol I always remember when she played against Serena in her first US OPEN, and she looked embarassed when she won a point...can't get over that sheepish look.

:D

:hearts: Amazing Dina! Congrats!:hearts:

I managed to watch the 3rd set and well, there were some close moments. But she did it, she came through. Once again, congrats Dina!

And good job, Martina!

Oh, please. Ivanovic batter-bruised Mauresmo in str8 sets last year in the R16 in Sydney and Momo still went on to win the big one. But now all of a sudden Hingis loses a close 3 setter to a top 10 player and so automatically she can't be considered a contender?

WELL SAID! PLus, it's not like she lost 62 61, this would mean "to be overpowered"...instead she lost 57 in the third set...

Hingis somehow compared to Mauresmo ?
Poor Hingis would have a fit. :haha:

I know I can already hear that big, catty mouth running.
"Let her win 5 majors and end 3 years at number 1 before you compare her to me. And even then, I'll still be the prettiest." :lol:

Both girls played some great tennis but dinara was just to strong.. But Hingis hit some INCREDIBLE drop shots and played some nice aggresive tennis.. both girls will be favourites to reach the quaters if not more at the Aus Open..

Dinara gave an awesome speech.. and i loved hingis comment that she'll "be as good as her brother".. tennis needs more players like Hingis and Safina with some charisma when all you have at the top is the bland mauresmo & henin hardenne and the arrogant sharapova.. (BTW im big fan of all 3 for their games)

Yeah Dina! Only saw the first set before I went out. I am so glad that she proved my prediction wrong.
