Aug 18th, 2011, 07:13 PM
9 Aces, 16 DFs, really Marion? :help:

Dani ;)

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:14 PM
3 DF in the end??

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:14 PM
well done Dani :wavey:

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:14 PM
more like marion def marion

poor girl was fighting hserself more than anything out there

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:14 PM
Marion :o

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:15 PM
It might be a good idea to just spin the second serve instead of trying to serve unreturnable second serves all the time :weirdo:

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:15 PM
Should have been much, much easier Daniela :o

Quarterfinals :woohoo:

Marion almost a punchbag. 5-1 now :D

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:15 PM
Dani won nearly 60 points on return

deserved win.

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:16 PM
Marion :hysteric: GP in the last game then 2 DFs :rolls: What a freaking mess.

WC to New Haven will be accepted methinks.

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:16 PM
An ace followed by two DFs in the last game for Marion. Pretty much sums up how this match went. Really should have been a straight setter for Daniela, but she choked (as per usual) and converted only 2/13 BPs in the second set.

Glad she closed it out though. QF appearance :cheer:

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:16 PM
Daniela :hearts: So happy about this one. Maybe her QF will be finally on a TV court.
Marion :hug:

yay, Danka :cheer: another great tourney this year :yeah:
Cake :awww::hug:

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:16 PM

Anotoxfa tried to choke, but Marion didn't let her.

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:16 PM
Should have been in 2
Daniela :yeah:

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:16 PM
16 of those points were double faults so she only "won" 44

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:17 PM
One of the lowest points of Bartoli's career for sure. :awww:

Expecting a R1 loss at USO to (WC)Craybas or (Q)Keys. She is in terrible form since blowing the first set in Stanford F.

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:17 PM
Dani yay :yeah:
Marion :hug: it looks like you double-faulted yourself

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:18 PM
Wonderful stuff. Very close to an absolute peak of Hantuchova“s chokejob virtuosity.

Just a small summary...I even don“t remmber what everything happened:

6-3, 3-1* and BP
6-3, 3-3* 40-0 and 2 BPs
Broken with DF to 3-5* (Followed by exactly the same stuff from Bartoli in next game)
Broken to 5-7

Third set, 3-1 -----> 3-3*

And then something happened, Bartoli must have been horrible to lose 3 games against melting Hotmessova, just comeback from 3-5 to 7-5 was missing to make this match GOAT...However, Bartoli“s 2 DFs to give Daniela a MP wasn“t that bad ending either. Just a prove that WTA is priceless.

Honorable mention to Bartoli“s 16 DFs and Hantuchova“s 7/22 BPs conversation (2/13 in second set)

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:18 PM
Good stuff :yeah:

Sombrerero loco
Aug 18th, 2011, 07:18 PM
bartoli losing :drool:

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:20 PM
that was too much to handle,even for us ancient Dani fans :o

a win is a win,I guess.Also,another top-ten win for her :banana:

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:20 PM
Daniela :bounce: wasted so many chances in the 2nd set, but Well Done

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:20 PM
Make semi!!!

Its strange to see Marion having such weak results on hard since its her best surface and having in mind what a year has she been having :shrug: But all that wins during the clay and grass seasons have drained her, I guess :awww:

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:20 PM
Daniela back to her marathon three setters winning ways. :worship:

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:23 PM
16 double faults, Marion? :unsure:

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:24 PM
Why is Marion serving like this all the time now? :unsure: It paid off against Serena at Wimbledon, but there's no need to do it every match, girl. :hug:

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:26 PM
Her serve has always been inconsistent :o One tournament she's serving Goat like, the next double faulting like crazy.

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:27 PM
Another top 10 win, well doen Dani :cheer:

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:29 PM
Marion :unsure: Get it together for NY pls

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:29 PM

Aug 18th, 2011, 07:31 PM
Good win Daniela :D

Well, should have been in 2, those wasted BPs in 2nd set :facepalm:
But happy that she still won it in the end!

mik loves dani
Aug 18th, 2011, 07:34 PM
Hanchokova did her usual thing. Anotoxfa came and invaded her occasionally, not like yesterday. I think yesterday Cynthia had sex on serious aggressive floors. Yelling at the same time mowhalk laminate has come a really long way!! Uhh. But anotoxfa saved her with a break at 4-3 and a love hold at 5-3. Then anotoxfa jumped in marions head and said cake, double fault! Anotoxfa dominated the first set and a half. Then hanchokova came and said what are you doing in my nervous Daniela?!? Why are you making her serious and aggressive??? Without me there is no AO 2008!

Dani continues to own Marion :hearts: Really should have been a straight set victory, but Dani surrendered early break leads and only converted 2/13 chances in set 2. :help: Good luck in the quarters! :yeah:

Aug 18th, 2011, 08:00 PM
thank balls for that. Dani :bounce:

Aug 18th, 2011, 08:08 PM
Thank God I didn't follow after 6-3 3-1 BP as I knew the rest of the story.

Very, very glad that Daniela won this match. :woohoo:

Aug 18th, 2011, 08:19 PM
Good win, I am starting to believe that Daniela knows how to play against Bartoli. In Luxembourg 2007 Bartoli got totally destroyed and now another win despite that Daniela is not in the form of her life like 4 years ago. Very well done.

Aug 18th, 2011, 08:22 PM
Well done, Daniela! :D

Good win. :yeah:

Good stuff Dani :yeah:

Aug 18th, 2011, 08:27 PM
Marion :smash:

I know she will comeback to her peak on time before USO :bounce:

I really would love to see her qualify for YEC, actually my ultimate wish was for her to complete her GS quarterfinals calender in USO :hearts:

but I will stick to my first wish :lol: she is so close though.

Aug 18th, 2011, 08:31 PM
good job Dani..another top 10 win!!!...GL in QF...

Aug 18th, 2011, 08:46 PM
Marion :facepalm:

Aug 18th, 2011, 08:49 PM
Marion :o

Aug 18th, 2011, 08:56 PM
Excellent, perfect day for my faves :drool:

Aug 18th, 2011, 09:37 PM
Dani :hearts:

Aug 18th, 2011, 09:58 PM
Danka :bowdown: This gives me so much life :inlove:

Aug 18th, 2011, 10:33 PM

Zvonareva next, beat her same as in 2009, but please, not the same score :tape:

Aug 18th, 2011, 11:14 PM
Destroy Vera, now.

Aug 18th, 2011, 11:48 PM
Too bad one girl had to lose--wish I could have seen the match (err--or not, seeing the stats).

Marion; fix that 2nd serve up. No excuse to be serving more than one or two DFs per set, much less 16 in a match.

Aug 19th, 2011, 01:28 AM
Danielle :yeah:

Aug 19th, 2011, 01:43 AM
Dani :yeah:

Aug 19th, 2011, 01:47 AM
Marion, this is so sad to see after the amazing year :hug:
Let's do this is New Haven :yeah:
