:eek: Daniela isn't at her best, I think.

But good win for Ai :worship: Can she gain momentum going into the Olympics (and Montreal? :D) ?

Allez Ai :worship:

Ai is a true sportswoman and professional so I'm glad she won.

Go on, Ai!

Dani, didn't play well at all...that being said Ai was playing really well in that second set. Good luck in the next round Ai!

Daniela was up 3-0* :o

From there it was complete shit from her. Her movement was probably the worst Ive ever seen. She is either still out of form from the injury or her heel is still bothering her. But it has to be one of those two.

Ai was playing really, really well though also, moving Daniela around so effortlessly. :yeah:

What a surprising rout. :eek: Dani really fell apart after starting out 3-0. :sad: Obviously there`s still a lot of work for her to do to get back to any kind of good form.

ai is such a legend, she realy has spent all her carrer trying 100% and even now in 2008 shes still looking top 30 material, im amazed and glad.

shes also amassed some mega prizemoney!

dani, you were crap sorry, dont think you will regain that top 10 ranking anytime soon!

You had to see Daniela to fathom how bad she was. Ai is so lucky because had she drawn anyone better than Glatch (which is pretty much anyone), she would be long gone.

Ai played extremely well especially in the second set where she was just on fire, but it was obvious that Daniela hasn't found her rhythm coming back from the injury, she'll get it back in time.

I'm so glad Ai has another good win in a big tourney, hopefully she can take out Cibulkova but it will be tough.

Horrible play by Daniela :help:

Wow, from 0-3 down in the first set, Ai went on tear and Dani melted away.
Keep going Ai! I hope she can end the year ( i think her last ? ) within the top 30 :cool::bounce:

Great top 15 this Hantuchova is :yeah:

She just came back from a serious injury. Not her fault that players behind her in the rankings didn't gain more point while she was out.

A Sugiyama/Cibulkova QF will be a complete and utter snoozefest.

A Sugiyama/Cibulkova QF will be a complete and utter snoozefest.

Yup.

Maybe it will become interesting if Sugiyama attempts to make it to the net - duel between a good volleyer and a player who hits excellent passes. Doubt she will though.

Daniela is such an embarrassment to tennis players in general. Even Dementieva is way better than her at everything...... but then again Dementieva's fans aren't such a witty bunch so ............. :tape:

It might take some time before Dani is playing good tennis again. But as long as her heel recovers 100% it is just a matter of time.

As others have mentions Sugiyama is a bad match up for Dani, especially on hardcourts, even when Dani is 100% fit, but normally their matches are at least highly competitive. In Dani's current condition I doubt Ai would have been the player Dani would have chosen to see across the net.

It might take a little while but things can only improve for Dani. Just give her some time.
