Congrats Daniela. She couldn't play much better (except the latter stages of the 2nd set).
Aga actually didn't play as bad as the scoreline suggests, but the serve was atrocious. Please work on it girl asap!
Great tournament for her anyway and she's done us proud. :)

Excellent performance from Dani. :clap2: I didn`t expect her to win so easily. She looked very sharp right from the start, especially with her shotmaking. Obviously she had some trouble closing out the match, but i`m glad that she got the break to finish it. It`s great to see Dani finally make it to her first Grand Slam semifinal. :D :clap2:

SEMI FINAL!!!

Fantastic, and she is still on 24 years old!

She played with incredible accuracy, Radwanska couldn't play her game at all. A little choke at the end, and Aga seemed to pick up her game...she probably should have played like she did in the last 2 games for the whole match.

But anyway, ecstatic for Dani SHE HAS FINALLY GOT THERE!

Goodluck next round!

:worship: Hantuchova first slam SF.

LOL at this slam. Hantuchova is a slam SF while Serena and Henin are QF. LOL how cooky

Radwanska was very unimpressive.

Who do you think Hantuchova will root for in the next QF? Venus 0-9 or Ana 1-2


Either way solid result for Hantuchova but I expect the Venus/Ana winner to be in the Final.

I don't think words can describe how exhilarated I am for Dani right now. :sobbing: She's believed in herself for long enough that making a slam semifinal has now come to fruition--and she has an okay shot at the final! But I'm not even thinking about that, Daniela's exceeded my expectations at this event. I thought she'd lose to Cornet. And Kirilenko. And Radwanska.

Just. Daniela. :worship: You've made all of your fans who have stuck with you for so long so proud just now. Keep believing. :yeah:

Just fantastic!!! she was in contol throughout the whole match & played agressive tennis along with some nice net ploys & drop shots. just a marvellous breakthrough for her & this will do good for her confidence.

Aga :hug: she played well & the scoreline doesn't indicate that she was completely outplayed. still a good two weeks for her.

OMG @ Radwanska :help: Her game has so many exploitable weaknesses... I've never seen any of her upsets but I wonder if Venus/Hingis/Maria/Nadia were having the fucking mother of all off days...

Anyway I've found this Australian Open to be moderately enjoyable until right now. Hantuchova in a Slam semifinal? Have mercy! Her brittle ass will be knocked back into the stands by Venus or Ivanovic.

aga's serve was helpless rly, but she wasnt playing parlicularly bad. pity she didnt risk more, she did very well in the latter stages of the 2nd set when she was sure there was nothing to lose, got 3 return winners in a row... anyways, great tourney for her :)

Excellent match. I really enjoyed that. The scoreline was definately harsh as far as Aga was concerned. She actually played pretty well although as others have said the 2nd serve needs improvement. Still it was a great tournament from Aga and she will only go from strength to strength. She has so much time. I really hope Aga can feel proud of what she has done the last week and half and not be too down about today's result. :hug:

As for Dani....what can one say. She was magnificent. I don't think I've ever seen her play better. She moved great. She show wonderful touch and hit some lovely gentle shots. She with hit sharp precision. She attacked and when for her shots at all times and was always brave. Just wonderful. She must feel so pleased with herself and deservedly so. :banana:

Good luck in your semi final Dani. It won't be easy but if you play like that you have a real good shot. :bounce:

At least she wasn't bent over and kicked by Aga, like Sveta and Nadia were. And like Dani could have been even a year ago! (or in Zurich!)

Her fans don't give a shit if she gets mauled by Venus, we're just happy she's in the semis!

So Disrespectful
Jan 23rd, 2008, 01:31 AM
I knew this day would come eventually. There were doubts for a while, and us fans have waited so long for this. Since the end of 2003, we didn't know that she'd even be a top 20 player anymore, and now a further 2 titles and a grand slam semifinal. Don't try to take this moment away by saying she has no chance against Venus (who's losing anyway) or that her draw was a cakewalk, please!

She doesn't have the biggest strokes, she doesn't move quickly and her serve isn't too powerful either. What she does know is how to play smart tennis within herself and ultimately win matches, even if she does choke sometimes. She's making the most of what she was given.

This is great. I am very happy to see that Daniela is finally living up to her potential.

I guess last year's loss is this year's gain.;)
Besides, Dani didn't underestimate Aga since she knows Aga had already taken out two seeds.

at the beginning of the tourn there's been so much talking about Linds & Masha, the Sisters or "Can Henin demolish Kuzzie in the final?

I'm quite happy that other's came out so well here - not only Dani...
======================

After the 5-2* ind 2nd set I just thought about the Wimby-exit a few years ago where she started crying. This time I knew she would break her for the match.

If she wants to beat Ana she has to move better and realize that she has to move - not as today. And most of all she has to calm down her nerves when servving it out. That's all I hope Dani is able to do in the semi ;)

Was this the same Radwanska who swatted aside the world #2 in straight sets?! :eek:

Oh wait - I just forgot that the world #2 in question was Kuznetsova :tape:

I am so very happy for Daniela. I've loved this girl since she was 17 years old and playing in the qualies. I've been elated when she won, and watched her struggle through some dismal matches, and have just wanted to cry or shake her or both, and then watched with hopefulness as she started to turn it all around and now to see her beautiful game flower at the Oz Open has been so wonderful. She's a great girl and I wish her only the best.

I also like Ana, and also wish Ana the best, only not to win her next match ;) It was great to see Ana overcome her nerves yesterday.

Great match from Daniela! :bounce:
She had her nerves under control and Radwanska had no chance! :angel:
Really good volleys from Dani and she played some really good stops...
Now beat Ana! :devil:

SEMI FINAL!!!

Fantastic, and she is still on 24 years old!

She played with incredible accuracy, Radwanska couldn't play her game at all. A little choke at the end, and Aga seemed to pick up her game...she probably should have played like she did in the last 2 games for the whole match.
But anyway, ecstatic for Dani SHE HAS FINALLY GOT THERE!

Goodluck next round!

agreed. aga just wasnt the same as in previous rounds. the occasion beat her maybe and hantuchova played stunning. a combination of all three sees this result even though i wanted something else

congrats to daniela

aga :hug: theres always another 3 grand slams you can win :lol:
