Dina looks so sad in every match she plays. She really needs the offseason.

Well done Bepa, held the head together:) Dinara was putting in some good service games in the second set, you can see things coming back together.

Dinara played good tennis today. It not be surprise to me if she in 2011 will play like real TOP10 already since start of season.

Today she has very bad luck with draw, and also with couple crucial balls. If she played better at crucial points (every time when she has opportunity to reach set point in 2nd set) who knows what will happen today.

On other hand Zvonareva's once again use fact that she playing careers best tennis since Wimbledon. Very dangerous opponent in 1st round, but on other hand she draws almost perfect half of draw in Beijing (especially after Stosur and Kuznetsova early upsets).

Wow, looking at Vera's half of the draw she has a very good chance of making it to the final. I would like to see another Zvonareva/Wozniacki match, hopefully one that goes three sets as their previous two meetings were very one-sided.

Dinara :hug: just needs to regain more confidence again to convert on those big points against the in form players.

WD Vera. Played well when it mattered.

Bitter-sweet result for me. I'm glad Dinara made a fight of it, hopefully she looks at the positives - but I doubt.

Keep up the good form Bepa! :bounce:

Vera caved in during her last match, in Tokyo with Lena.
Not sure what this means, but if Vera wants #1, this tournament has lots of points

what did that coach do to Dina,she is not the same player anymore...she is back to that Safina that was being coached by her mother...to imagine that she was once a no.1 ranked player..

Expected, Bepa's much more solid right now.

But Dina seems to be slowly improving.

I also wanna ask what did that coach do to her?yes,she is that dina who was coached by her mom!:mad: Dont be stubborn girl!u know who can help u:(that coach made her so dependent on him that she cannot win on her own and when she was being coached by her mother she never went beyond 4th round at big events.I hope she gets her mojo back because its really sad to see a former no.1 struggling like that.

Dinara has a new coach. I think he's Argentinean, but I don't know his name. I really don't think we can blame her mother. I mean, please. She's working hard, trying to get back, and I think she definitely will improve her ranking, but it will take into next spring.

Nice win, Vera!:bounce::bounce:

A close match as expected. Head To Head now 6-5 for Dinara.

Beat Petkovic in R2, Vera!;)

Vera came into this #2 in 2010 points, about 5400 while Caro has about 6400
So if Vera has a big week in China, she can close the gap a little heading into the YEC

I thought it was a pretty good match certainly one of the better matches Dinara has played this year. She is slowly getting back to her best and with a better draw would have won.
