Wasn't that the same score she had against Martina Hingis in Doha, down 6-1,3-1, 30-0 then wins 1-6,6-4,6-4, all in all a great comeback, should have finished it easier but very nice win!!

Damn! Maria really should have won that in two sets. She completely lost herself in the middle of the second set. However, it was very well-played match by both women.

Hantuchova
Winners - 32
Unforced Errors - 30

Kirilenko
Winners - 32
Unforced Errors - 27

Well... I'm not too disappointed because Maria finally got the 3R curse off her back here, but obviously I would have loved to have seen her in the QF. But Oh well. :shrug:

Congrats Daniela, good luck vs. Aga.

Little Masha won more points than Dani did. :p Kirilenko won 88 and Dani won 86. :rocker2: :lol:

Maria?!! :help: Up 6-1, 3-1, and 30-love only to lose 17 straight points? WTF is up with these headcases?
Wow...could Daniela actually make it to the semis? She's got a golden opportunity. But so does her opponent. Either way it will be a surprise semifinalist into the Australian Open this year.

I cried a little bit, I have to admit.

She was never going to win another title. Be top 10 again. Make another slam quarterfinal. :wavey: Keep proving your doubters (and even your fans too) wrong, Dani.

This is easily the best result on the WTA for me so far. I'm so happy for Daniela. She didn't play well, in my opinion, but she hasn't played well at all so far but she's still winning. Her first slam semifinal looms. I'm excited.

Well done, Daniela. :sobbing: :worship:

Hantuchova needs to take this opportunity now. Radwanksa is the type of player she often loses to (i think she may have lost to her in Zurich last year) but if she wants to prove a lot of people wrong she's got to play the tennis she capable of and make the semis.

I always maintained Hantuchova would get back to this level once she got back in the right frame of mind. I personally don't think she back to the best yet but she's getting there.

And if she does make the semis Daniela is the sort of player who tends to lift once she goes deep.

Did anyone see the very cold handshake Maria gave Daniela? Daniela looked at her like, "What is your problem." :lol:

well done dani, good comeback, only saw the final set and played decently. Good chance of making a semi but we'll see.

Jan 21st, 2008, 07:17 AM
I gave up with her when she was 6-3 3-1 down...then she won all those points in a row!

Mini Masha calling for a trainer at 5-3 was pretty annoying, you could Dani was pissed off she couldn't believe it. Then she got another trainer at 5-4 and Dani got to a 40-0 lead...a mini FUCK YOU CHEATER to mini Masha.

Anyway MAKE IT TO THE SEMIS DANI, and congrats to Maria making it pass the 3rd round !!!...she is a dangerous player now if she keeps this level of play up.

Lunaris
Jan 21st, 2008, 07:20 AM
Finally, Daniela. It was about bloody time. But she just can't avoid slow starts against better players lately and then must make a desperate comeback. Radwanska will be too much unfortunately.

Are you telling me Daniela wouldn't have done the same thing? It's like a trend doing it nowadays. It's not like Daniela is the most sportswoman like player on the tour, either...

Well done too Masha getting to the 4th round. :yeah:

As expected Daniela's greater experience made the difference.

This might however not be the case against Agnieszka, as Aga is mature way beyond her years. That is going to be one tough match to predict.

The thought of either Dani or Aga in the Australian Open semis is a very pleasing one indeed. I only was there was a place for both of them there.

Long way to reach top 10 for Kirilenko. People started to be excited too early.

Congrats Daniela, up-and-down performance as usual, but she always gets through ^^.

Actually she showed a lot of potential, and I saw a lot of good things out of Masha's play. Let's get 1thing straight she did not choke this match away, Hantuchova turned on a switch in the middle of that match and WON the match. She didn't pull a Russian choke, she just got beat by someone who finally found their game. Top 10 is a possibility for Maria

I will admit I hate Hantuchova's random moon balling in a point. That tactic isn't going to work against any of the power hitters in the game. I mean Kirilenko did go deeper than anyone ranked ahead of her, the pieces are coming together. Hell Bartoli made the top 10.
