well it will be a hard match.
Daniela wasn't fit in Hong Kong and Dinara played really good in Gold Coast.

I say Daniela will win it in 3!

Jan 5th, 2008, 08:57 AM
Dinara in 2

It won't be pretty, but I think Dinara can eek it out in 3 . This is how hard work in training will pay off.

Jan 5th, 2008, 12:53 PM
Dani isn't 100% so Dinara should win

Jan 5th, 2008, 01:07 PM
Dinara can do it. C'mon!

Jan 5th, 2008, 01:27 PM
Safina in 3

Jan 5th, 2008, 01:35 PM
dinara so far has been playing better i guess, so i think dinara in 3...but i won't be suprised if dani will win this in 2 either...

Jan 5th, 2008, 01:53 PM
Last year Dinara won Gold Coast and lost in the first round in Sydney - now she has no excuse, she has to win! I don't think daniela could repeat that tiebreaks in Zurich

Jan 5th, 2008, 01:55 PM
Dina in 3.

Jan 5th, 2008, 01:55 PM
CīMon Dinara!!!

You can win it, against Dani:boxing:

You must be in a good shape after your impressive Doubles Title(w/Szavay) at GC:D


Jan 5th, 2008, 01:57 PM
Dinara really should win this. But she should have beaten Peer last week too, so...

Jan 5th, 2008, 02:00 PM
Close one, my moneys on Daniela if she is fit :)

Jan 5th, 2008, 03:50 PM
can go either way :shrug:

Jan 5th, 2008, 04:26 PM
Safina in 2 (7;6 6;1 ) :)

Jan 5th, 2008, 04:47 PM
daniela! in 2

Jan 5th, 2008, 04:50 PM
Well if Daniela is still sick, Safina should take it in straights but if she's healthy I like daniela in two tight sets or 3.

Jan 5th, 2008, 04:56 PM
Daniela in 2. Even though I'm not a huge fan, I'm expecting some great results this year. I would love to see her in the top six.

Really? I'm actually expecting the opposite. I am a fan, but I'd be really surprised if Dani stayed in the top ten this season. Hope I'm wrong, but...top six seems almost out of the question entirely.

Dani has won the previous two matches, but Dinara won the first two. I hear Hantuchova was sick last week. Dinara definitely has a chance. I'd take Vaidisova over either one, and then Golovin to advance to the semi.

Daniela in 2!

Jan 5th, 2008, 07:22 PM
Should be a good one, going with Daniela in 3.

Jan 5th, 2008, 07:32 PM
fun fact:If Dani and Nicole win, it will be the 3rd straight year they've faced eachother in this tourney.

Jan 5th, 2008, 08:29 PM
Come on Daniela.

Jan 5th, 2008, 09:05 PM
Dinara 6-0 6-0. Daniela is just a joke, isnt she?

Jan 5th, 2008, 09:09 PM
Dinara in 3:sad: I really want Daniela to have a good run in Sydney but I don't see her beating Dinara, I hope I am wrong.

Jan 5th, 2008, 09:10 PM
Dinara in 3

Jan 5th, 2008, 10:11 PM
Dinara should win this without a problem. Daniela is terrible lately. I smell a double bagel

Jan 5th, 2008, 11:26 PM
Whoever can keep her mind more stable.

I think Dinara will win in 3.

Jan 6th, 2008, 12:05 AM
COME ON DANIELA !!!!! :bounce::bounce::bounce:


Jan 6th, 2008, 01:30 AM
Itīs going to be a tough match, but I think Safina will slug it out in three!

Jan 6th, 2008, 01:39 AM
daniela 7-5 6-4.
i'd love to dinara to win this, though.

Jan 6th, 2008, 01:43 AM
Hantuchova 3-6 7-5 6-2

Jan 6th, 2008, 02:07 AM
Daniela will win in three. She'll win because she's a better player than Safina and has been playing with some good form unlike Safina. ;)

Jan 6th, 2008, 03:39 AM
Hantuchova 6-2 2-6 6-1 :eek:

Jan 6th, 2008, 05:46 AM
I was watching Daniela hitting with Nicole today she was hitting the ball well. :)

Dani in 3

Jan 6th, 2008, 06:40 AM
feeling that dinara will win this. dani didn't get the match prep that she usually needs to do decent.

prove me wrong danka!! :armed:

Jan 6th, 2008, 10:08 PM
When does they play?

Claudio :wavey:

Jan 6th, 2008, 10:22 PM
Dinara has a slight advantage since she has played at GC (under the Australian wetaher condition) whereas Daniela hasn't playing at Australian soil just yet!

Dinara def Daniela 6-3 6-3
