"As for the women, Monica Seles has shown no signs of returning to winning ways and still appears to be nursing her foot injury. A question mark also regarding Venus Williams fitness following her an abdominal injury picked up on her Warsaw final on May 4 against Amélie Mauresmo. Finally Daniela Hantuchova, who on current form may well be the first seed to exit the tournament prematurely." :(

The draw has been made. Dani will play world #105 Alina Jidkova in the first round. She hasn't made it past the 2nd round in any event at all this year. 2nd round opponent is either Harkleroad or Obata, 3rd could be just about anyone and then 4th round is likely to be Mauresmo.

Good luck Dani! :bounce:

If you work this draw through, you'll see if it plays out according to seed, Dani will have to face Momo in the round of 16, and the winner of that match facing Serena in the Quarter Finals.

That's a pretty tough draw. Momo's in France, on her home turf, on her best surface, and that will be a brutal match. To have to face Serena after that, well, Dani better show up with her "A" game to all of these...

alltennis69

Quick Match Analysis:

She really picked it up in the second set but she got a lot of help from her opponent.

Jidkova had 33 UE's and only 3 winners in the 2nd and 3rd Set, now the UE's could be due to some strong hitting from DH and ping ponging Jid. around which I hope is the case...

Meanwhile Dani's Winner/UE ratio was good both in second and third set. She was +ve in second set which is great...but her overall differntial was -20!
which she definately needs to be careful about in her next match with Ashley.

She also needs to have more PUNCH in her first serve! 100mph was her fastest today, this is obviously something that she cannot fix overnight. She has IMHO the most perfect motion of ball toss, swing and torque for any person in tennis (next to Guga! maybe), but she needs more upper body strenth IMHO to get another 5-10 mph on her serve.

Her net percentage was good although not best, but would love to see her come more to the net and taunt Ashley in second round and tempt her to make mistakes...

re: second round, Ashley is inexperienced but VERY talented and she has a solid clay game...she also is coming in with a LOT of Gumption and big time US backing (a pretty solid combination), She is where Dani was last year!. DH needs to use her experience and physce out Ashley and make her feel nervous, NOT the other way around.....

Dani, needs to show confidence and experience in her 2nd match...if she loses the first set in similar fashion to Ashley...it could very well be a different story...

IMHO.

allT.

congrats Daniela!
tho i thought it would be better if Daniela deafeated her in 2-sets instead of 3... i dont want her to have a hard time with the opponents in the early rounds.. because they should be a sinch for her, but now is not the time to wine about Daniela's matches...

Go Daniela! Good Luck!

anyone kno who her next opponet will be...?

but more important...
when will Daniela play next.. on Wednesday right..???? :bounce:


Thanks...

May 26th, 2003, 10:12 PM
Agree with Allt. Dani needs to stamp her authority on Ashley right from the start because if she loses the first set, I fear she will lose the match, as she's already found out once this year. Ashley is the new kid on the block, much like Dani was last year. This is no time or place to be nervous and Dani needs to show her just who is boss.

Hi everyone ! :wavey:

I'm back home after a great day at Roland Garros ! I saw in this thread that you lived this match fully even without broadcast, you are terrific !

I had the luck to see it. But I was at her practice session at 12:30, and it seemed already she was a bit tensed. First day + first round to come in a Slam, it's normal...
It was fantastic to see her so close at the end of the practice, less than 1 meter :lick: At that time she recognized someone near and spoke to him in slovak, smiling for the first time.
I took some pictures from that moment, she looked like one of the last "blue Mercedes logo" pic, the close portrait one :hearts:

The match : first of all, the good new is she looks healthy and full of energy, not like her two or three last tournaments. But the first set was a pity : she constantly looked at Nigel, exactly like someone in lack of confidence, and was impatient and very irritable (she yelled loud once ! ). Then, you all know what followed : a fantastic festival of baseline winners, full of confidence, a real joy to watch at ! She was lovely with her brand new pastel blue dress :kiss: :kiss: :kiss:
I just worry, for the following rounds, this irritable side, that can cost her a set very quickly. In the two last sets, the strokes were back. The serve can still be improved compared to last year's.
She took the time for authographs, which she did not, curiously, after the practice.

Other sensation of my day : the fabulous Maria Sharapova !!! Jesus, what an extraordinary beautiful girl ! She's a living evidence of the existence of God...
Face, body, and legs...Guys, soon a sub-section of the CP should be devoted to her, for all amateurs of wonderful legs... :lick: :lick: :lick:
Still a stereotyped tennis for her young age (16), but a tremendous will and fighting spirit ! And indeed this loud grunt !!! Sometime the crowd laughs because of that !

All this under a fair weather :cool:
I realised at the end that I took 171 pictures today, the first day :eek: All my pics should be ready online by when... the US Open starts ;)

Hope to sleep well tonight, thanks to DH & MS...and the existence of G...:angel:

:wavey:

Hi Paul,

Great to hear u made it to see Dani Live ! Its interesting your observations are very similar to mine at the Berlin Open....the looking over at Nigel Bit....she does that guilty look at him every time she makes a bad shot...as if seeking redemption :)....

Think its the little girl seeking looking for reassurance bit...or maybe she's closer to Nigel than we all think :eek: :eek: (just kidding)....anyway not that she should not seek consul or support from her coach...but something probably she needs to grow out of a bit...anyway it looks quite cute...

The festival of baseline winners :bounce: :bounce:....she is close to perfect in that and its a pleasure to watch her run her opponent back and forth on the service line like a trained pony.... :D.... Glad to hear she got her form back and it was'nt the russian just choking....

On Sharapova... she's a looker alright. But other than that she is a very promising tennis player. She would do very well by following Daniela than the other Russian looker who isn't doing much about her tennis right now. The tour always needs new faces... even better if they're pretty so long as they can perform.

Ive noticed though... for some reason Masha looks older than Daniela. And its not only me thats saying that. My non-tennis fan friends all think Daniela is the Junior.

I agree Paul...the looking over bit is guess that 'innocent' side of her that we so dig :D ...but as far as court maturity...i noticed she systematically takes more time to compose herself ( the meditation sequences, looking down at the racquet at the end of the court)..which is good....the lookover to Nigel...may take a bit longer...other players do it too...but lot more fleetingly and w/ lot less frequency...

Tarsius
May 27th, 2003, 12:12 AM
On Harkleroad... I agree with alltennis. But with this win she should at least get the confidence that she CAN dominate an opponent and not just play tag-along for the tiebreak which she has been doing so frequently of late. In all honesty I was expecting something like that... but this is clearly different. If she goes with the confidence she can bagel a player, thats a whole different mindset because IMO she has never been like that of late. Harkleroad will be tough... but Dani can be tougher.

Hi all ! :wavey:

Second day at Roland Garros : Pinky is lucky, the weather is great, and will get warmer and warmer untill the end of the week, really like summer :cool:

I saw Dani's afternoon practice session. Program : mid-court attacks, with balls hit at the top of the bounce, sliced approaches, volleys. At the end, when she opened the court's door, a lot of fans were there, and a camera of a certain "Esport Tv" (never
heard about it :confused: ). I struggled to get the closest possible, and took many pictures of her while she was answering this short interview. Taken with a 300mm lens at 1,5m, they should be nice...I was hearing her "you know/I mean", while shooting in bursts. She was soooo shy : many times biting lightly one of her lips,
that detail that makes us all die :kiss: :kiss: :kiss: Her wide blue eyes lightened my
lens, I was in heaven for one minute...( Second evidence of God's existence in two
days, He must have a strong message to deliver to me...).

I saw the (J)Elenas babes : Dokic, Dementieva, Bovina :kiss: :cool:

And the farewell match of Chang against Santoro : the two small magicians. For those who have Eurosport : don't miss tonight's résumé, they may watch us again a
sensational point won by Santoro, ending with a small retro-effect dropshot : it provoqued HUGE applauses, this guy can create stunning unconventionnal points.

I won't be tomorrow at the Stadium. Hope Dani will win easily in two sets !

First set to Ashley...Dani's got to keep up the pressure..it was a tight first set, her net approaches were great 6/9...she's got to get more first serves in and attack ashley's second serve which is an avg. of 111/km.

Ok, short summary of the 1st set (although I don't like it :( ) :

The quality of the match was quite good, especially Dani played excellent in the beginning. Then she lost her focus - dunno why though - and built up harkleroad by that :( When Dani started to fight back it was a bit too late and the tie-break was just :rolleyes:

BUT IF Dani manages to stay focused she won't have problems to win because she is the much better player. IMO she should finish more points at the net, which worked very well during the first half of the set!
