We all know that Daniela is not a clay-court GOAT, but she had a solid run to the Charleston Semis and beat Jankovic twice. She also looked good in her 1R match. Govortsova on the other side had a terrible start to the season, but really picked it up, she reached the Final of Ponte Vedra and lost 2 tough matches to in-form Safarova.

The H2H is:

Birmingham 2007, Grass, R32 D. Hantuchova 6-2 6-4
Stanford 2007, Hard, QF D. Hantuchova 7-5 6-3
Los Angeles 2008, Hard, R32 O. Govortsova 6-2 6-4
New Haven 2008, Hard, R16 D. Hantuchova 3-6 6-2 7-6

Olga gave Danka some tough matches, although that was when Danka returned from her injury in 2008. Both have good groundies and don't move too well, but Danka has more weapons, will play drop shots and has a better serve. Therefore Danka in 2, something like 7-5 6-2.

Daniela in two sets. ;)

Olga defeated Daniela in 2008 and it was when Daniela was after injury and she played crappy. Daniela will win this one.

GL Dani! :bounce:
