After the performance from today and given the fact, that Daniela has beaten Jelena on clay in the last two meetings, I would say, Hantuchova is favorite.

Hope is a good thing :)
On topic, Jelena from tonight isn't beating Dani. I still say JJ in 3

Dani still without losing a set. JJ is playing some horrible matches while Daniela is playing solid tennis.

Daniela will win in 3 sets. C´mon Danka! :devil:

Dani will drive JJ crazy with her drop shots:lol:


To be honest i think it could go either way..:shrug:
JJ hasn't been playing well and Dani can certainly beat her..

Hoping JJ wins though:)

lets be realistic..
Jelena will win !

Well Daniela is playing better but this is a GS so Jelena has a mental edge.
Really hope Daniela wins though, I'd like to see her doing well again:)

I know Dani beat JJ twice already on clay, but puhlease whenever Hantuchova fans expect Daniela to win something, she's most likely to dissappoint and choke, esp against highly ranked opponents = #1 rule in DH's career

and also this is a GS and JJ is gonna bring it while Daniela said she's injured.

In conclusion, Danka has no chance and will lose 2-6 3-6 to JJ, bet your house on it!

Jelena in 2 tough ones. Only God knows how because he's the only jurdge.

Daniela can lose to anyone on any day, but she is more talented than Jankovic, and if she plays well, she can beat her easily...

It all depends on Daniela really... if she plays well she´s win, if she brainfarts, she´s out...

May 29th, 2010, 10:20 PM
Jelena for the revenge factor.

May 29th, 2010, 10:30 PM
as well as Hantuchova has been playing lately, it's hard to imagine her beating Jankovic 3 straight times on clay! :lol: I think JJ will win in either 2 tough sets or maybe 3 :shrug:

Yeah, well said... But certainly is not more talented for complaining, criticizing the other players and gaining new haters... Because in that there's no doubt that Jelena wins clearly...

If this wasn't on clay, I'd give Dani more of a chance, but Jelena will win in straight sets.

I am a fan of Hantuchova and her game, as I have been for years. Yes she is very talented (probably more so than her results would indicate), but more talented than Jankovic? Not so sure about that one...

Perhaps they're equally talented, only Jankovic has done more to back it up as far as results. But I would say that Jankovic does everything just a little bit better than Hantuchova.

This RG match-up however, is a toss up. JJ in 2 is my prediction.

Jelena in 3

Talent doesn't equal results.
I think daniela is more talented. Just JJ is a far better athlete. And has capitalized better

May 30th, 2010, 02:03 AM
dani is booking some decent results since miami
2 wins over JJ already on gravel

given that, jankovic still is favorite to win this. but she ll have to play as in madrid to pull this one off. i really really hope daniela kicks some serbian ass again, podme! (and then she can choke her qf against whatshernamesova)

Just Do It
May 30th, 2010, 02:20 AM
Jelena in 3.

Now that Venus is out, I dream of a Hantuchova/Dementieva final :drool:
Well, to be realistic, Daniela has chances to reach the SF here, but she really needs a great day to beat JJ, her previous wins should give her confidence so :)

May 30th, 2010, 04:01 PM
But I would say that Jankovic does everything just a little bit better than Hantuchova.

What! Even serve? Not likely :o

But she does do a lot of things better I'll admit.

Nightmare! I HATE it when my 2 favourites face off in Grand Slams.

Sorry Dani, but I couldn't stand you beating JJ again on clay, JJ in 2 please :hearts:

LudwigDvorak
May 30th, 2010, 05:42 PM
Hantuchova is better at net and has a better first serve. The flatter forehand she possesses is more visually appealing to my eye, but it breaks down more often.

Jankovic does everything else better and usually with more conviction. I think they're both very talented women with different strengths. I think Hantuchova is more talented than Dementieva, but Dementieva is just the better player. Talent doesn't necessarily mean anything.

I do love Daniela though, and I'm rooting for her, but I just don't see her beating Jankovic on such a stage. I hope she proves me wrong.

Exactly all my thoughts and words summarized in 3 passages.
Ludwig, you know me. And if Dani loses I hope it's Lena who revenges her loss against JJ in the final ;)

What! Even serve? Not likely :o

But she does do a lot of things better I'll admit.

If you look at the stats Jelena hits her serves faster. The first serves seems similar in pace (but even here Jelena's stats are better) and Jelena has a clear advantage on second serve. As for accuracy of their respective serves, well they've both hit the same amount of aces, so yeah I'd say Jelena's serve is a tiny bit better than Daniela's.

I know people like to bitch about Jelena's serve but it was never as bad as some made it seem. Now that she's improved it, it's quite a good shot actually. The reason why Jelena often struggles on her serve is not the quality of the serve itself, but a very unreliable forehand.

As for the poll I'm not going to vote as I have no idea who will win. I expect Jelena to win, but I just never know with her so...

Such a close survey!

Voted for JJ but my heart really wants Dani to win. But Dani, as much as I love her, has the bad habit of choking. She's too smart for her own good outside of tennis---she overthinks way, waaaay too much. I have a feeling she gets overwhelmed by all the thoughts that enter her head when confronted with the implications of a great win or a mistake that could cost her her the match.

How I see Dani's mind in such situations:

("I could complete all GS Qtrfinals! Whoever wins this match is favored to reach the semis! OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG WHAT A BIG OPPORTUNITY GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!")

(Makes stupid error.)

("Why did I do that?! Why I'm blowing this? People will call you an underachiever again! Crap, crap crap crap...okay, calm down...I can't believe it...I blew a chance...Jelena will capitalize...I need to defend...okay okay okay....uhhh....crap...shit...I should've won that point...")

(Ball sails past her.)

(NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WHYYYYY IS THIS HAPPENING?!")


My nightmare scenario would be a JJ to play off while Dani spaces out.

I'm sorry, but there is no way Jelena's serve is better than Daniela's. :lol:
Hoping for a good match with Dani winning. :cheer:

Some people saying Dani has a worse second serve than Jelena...
Dani's second is so wondeerful when she plays well. placed beautifully. Not super fast but more effective than Jelena's second.


And this poll is scary close:tape:

Daniela beat JJ twice this year, will beat her one more time!
The question is: Is this the time for a RG QF for Daniela?

Beny
May 30th, 2010, 09:30 PM
I dont think Jankovic has played that bad so far. Kanepi was on a winning streak, has beaten Henin recently, faced Jankovic early but still no upset there.

Unfo, I have a feeling this is gonna be like back in 08 (or 07) when Daniela beat Medina at some pre-RG tournament but then at RG Daniela lost in three.

I saw Daniela play Wickmayer and Yanina was hopeless, there was always an error from her Daniela could rely on. Daniela has had an easy draw, I hope she improves and beats Jankowitch.

But if i should risk money I would bet on the Serb :(

bengt
May 30th, 2010, 09:30 PM
I'm hoping Dani can show the confidence from AO 2008...well except for the Ivanovic-match.
I admit Jelena plays good tennis on clay, but given the matches I saw Dani play at RG...It's Dani in 2 for me

Yorker
May 30th, 2010, 09:38 PM
I like both but I feel like when you think Jelena has her path to the semi's or whatever, she somehow loses. I think this is the match personally. I'll be happy with either player winning, I just have that feeling that JJ is going to throw in a bad performance.
