Mar 29th, 2004, 05:56 PM
I saw Daja playing sometimes and she was a real technical player. Doesn´t use her power. But what in the hell happened to her? She was top 20 material and now she has to work to stay in the top 200. Is she the next Hantuchova? Rises quick, falls fast!

Apr 2nd, 2004, 11:39 AM
Yes, I think she is :sad:

I also heard she had problems off court with family, and also injury :(

Please come back soon Daja :wavey:

Daja lose 1r again :rolleyes: :fiery:

Please get it together Daja! :sad:

If she keeps on losing that early everywhere for another couple of months, she will run out of money soon I guess.
How much did she earn last year ? 5.000 $ ? Does she still have some sponsors, who feed her ?

What's up next ?

May 2nd, 2004, 09:05 AM
I don't think she will run out of money soon :p

Remember she reached QF of US Open and 4r of Australia Open before ;) So money shouldn't be an issue

I don't really know what next up for her, just have to keep checking Challenger forum every now and again ;) :wavey:

May 2nd, 2004, 09:06 AM
I saw pic of her at Japanese Challenger event, she she still wear Nike

So I guess she still sponsored by them :bounce:

May 7th, 2004, 10:33 AM
Daja play 50.000 Fukuoka event, and she reach QF!! :D :worship:

Finally winning some matches! :drool:

Jun 8th, 2004, 04:49 AM
I don't think Daja is sponsored by nike anymore, but just wears the clothes they gave her when they still sponsored her as I saw photo of her in Japan and she was wearing an old nike outfit, not a new one.

Come on Daja:bounce:

Anyone know who she is coached by now?

Jun 9th, 2004, 04:31 PM
Check out GM topic at http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?p=3620044#post3620044 with horrible news.

Well, at least to me, these are news. Sad obviously, but to some extent it explains her slump.

Does anybody know, where to find information about Daja's tournament schedule in upcoming weeks ? Anyone ?

Jun 10th, 2004, 07:21 AM
Sad news, I knew about her Dad and her but not about the sponsors, how rude talk about kicking the player when she is down and sponsors they should have supported her while she is struggling.

Alpha I don't really know where to get a schedule for her the only way is probably to just check challengers forum and the commitment lists. Here are some sites on her thoug.

http://home17.inet.tele.dk/wta/ it has her recent results.
http://www.dajabedanova.com/ not updated anymore though.
http://www.bedanova.de/ also not updated anymore, her father did this one i think, as a few years ago I emailed the site manager and asked if it would be updated anymore and he replied and said it wasn't possible.

Jun 30th, 2004, 10:05 AM

I am not really surprised. Taking in consideration Daja's status, her match-fitness after horrible season 2004 including the season-ending injury, and the financial problems she faces after her former sponsor's campaign (made public late summer 2004, I think) it doesn't make sence to travel to Australia and New Zealand for 4 weeks with possibly 3 losses in opening rounds.

So she'll start season 2005 in February in Paris - good decision, I think.

Dec 12th, 2004, 07:16 AM
Good luck in Paris :bounce:

I wonder if she get a WC for WTA event in Prague just before Roland Garros next year?

Well done Daja, hopefully a nice boost for her ranking.

I couldn't be more happier both Kim and Daja back on court and winning after tough times.

I think Daja has a good chance against Frazier, Frazier is a great player but she had the bye while Daja has already had a match and now has nothing to lose.

Daja lost to Frazier but it was close 3-6 7-6 (4) 2-6

There have been good signs for Daja this week, hopefully she can take the confidence into her next event, does anyone know where she will play next?

I really hope she gets a quallies wild card for the prague event, in quallies she can win more matches than in main draw so better for her ranking and confidence.

Czech Bedanova retires after string of injuries
Thu Dec 22, 2005 12:38 PM GMT
PRAGUE, Dec 22 (Reuters) - Czech Daniela Bedanova, once ranked 16th in the world, has retired from professional tennis at the age of 22 after a string of injuries, the daily Sport reported on Thursday.

The 22-year old last played a tournament in Kedzierzyn-Kozle in Poland in August, but was forced to withrdraw from a match against Marta Lesniak because of a hand injury.

"As I feel it now, the end is definitive. I struggled for a year, the injuries kept coming back," Bedanova said.

"I am only 22 and perhaps I will miss it so much that I will try again one day. But now I have to find a different programme for my life."

Bedanova won one WTA tournament in 2000 and reached the U.S. Open quarter-finals in 2001.

Her father fucked her up to get German citizenship. I think Daja also had an eating disorder, though not nearly as bad as Dani had in '03. But she was really thin.
