4th round for Daniela, really good result, especially after that terrible red clay season before RG!
Never in doubt today, she just was better player, her bf was on fire and Wickmayer´s movement was just terrible and Daniela played smart tennis and knew what to do, well done!

Daniela smacking winners from all over the court :drool: H2H 4-0 now :yeah:

Yanina couldnt do much today. She tried to come back at 2-4 had some bps but Daniela closed the door and that was that.

Likely JJ for the third time on clay this season next round. Beat her twice already, no reason to think she can't do it again if shes playing well. :D

She played very well... Her BH DTL is a mess, but she mixed up her game. Came to the net a lot, used angles, and of course, her very effective FH :drool:

So Disrespectful

Daniela played well in patches, more than enough to get the win. She went on a bit of a roll towards the end of the first set and the beginning of the second.

definitely scared when Danka was down 4-5* in the first set and Wickmayer choked serving for the 1st set!!!, but Danka won 6 games in a row to lead 7-5 3-0* 30-0, but blew that 30-0 lead on Wickmayer's serve :fiery: But she was down 3BP's at 7-5 *4-2 30-40, deuce, adv Wick, deuce, adv Wick, deuce, adv Hant, deuce, adv Hant, drop shot winner for 5-2*

She took out Jankovic in the US and in Fed Cup. She's had a pretty good clay season. Losing to Schiavone in 3 and to Pavly who seems to own her isn't that bad.

Played well according to the stats. Yanina's game is never going to be a force on this surface.
Now beat Jelena for the 3rd time in a row :D.

Now beat Jelena for the 3rd time in a row :D.

Don´t think that she had a good RED clay season, I mean, she lost 1st round in Rome and Madrid and against opponents which she normally should beat, even on clay, Charleston on green clay was good, as Fed Cup was, that is true, but anyway, I hope she can reach the QF now, she definetly has chances in her next match! :)

Well, "a mess" is an overstatement, but most of her UE came from there. She is just too inconsistent with it. She did a couple of amazing shots with it, but it never seemed to be reliable. I know it used to be her money shot, not anymore. When it's on, though :drool: (Charleston against JJ)

Her cross court BH is much more reliable and great to throw the oponent of balance since she angles it brilliantly ;)

4th round for Daniela, really good result, especially after that terrible red clay season before RG!
Never in doubt today, she just was better player, her bf was on fire and Wickmayer´s movement was just terrible and Daniela played smart tennis and knew what to do, well done!

What boyfriend? :speakles:

Anyway, even though I don't really like Hantuchova, I've got to say that her backhand is such a fluent, clean shot - especially down the line. I'm happy she won this match.

Wickmayer still hasn't proved that she belongs anyway near top 10.

Wish I could have watched this. Unfortunately it conflicted with the Slava v Alisa match which I wasn't going to miss for anything. But this is totally the result I wanted that's for sure.

Great to see Dani reach another 4th round at RG. I very much hope she can now go further. :rocker:

Another member of LOB has fallen. It's hard for me to be too upset if it's to Dani, though. She's only on my moderate like list , but I think only Lena and Dani fans can truly appreciate each other's predicaments so I'm happy for y'all.

Oh, yes. I love Daniela and Elena, so I'm on life support after every tourny :p
We should open a support group to help each other overcome the nerve-shattering experiences these pair put us through!

Daniela is my second favorite after Elena, so I understand as well.

I'm thrilled for her, I hope she can make the SF, although even getting through Jankovic/Bondarenko will be tough enough. Boa sorte, precisas dela.

The winner of Hantuchova - Bondarenko/Jankovic will pass to the semis or maybe to the final.

Well, Francesca has become an arguably better player than Daniela. She's close to breaking top 10. Wouldn't say Daniela was a favourite, especially on this surface. And as I mentioned, she also seems to have problems with Pavly, so it's not that surprising.

Surprisingly pleasant match. Very good performance from Danka. Solid when she needed to, yet not letting herself get bossed around, excellent at taking (and often creating) the opportunities to be aggressive, hitting that clean, accurate, deep ball we all love to watch, + some cute stuff thrown in for good measure.

As for Wickmayer, I'm beginning to feel that it's not the conservative placement of her shots or some such detail that is holding her back, but rather intangibles, things that can't be taught, such as court sense and point building skills. She was constantly caught out of position (wrongfooted several times by Danka's BH DTL) and most of the time she was merely hitting the ball hard rather than trying to force Danka to move around. Her tactics are often as basic as her technique. And her ROS remains quite poor (as in, too many points thrown away on botched returns) for a player of her ranking range.

Awesome win for Daniela and great result, I didn't realize she had to play Jelena, would love either of them to make the semis...for Dani that would be an amazing accomplishment at RG.
