They'd probably be saying that she's just a Russian pretending to be an Aussie if she didn't. I like the fact that she's embracing Australian culture and connecting with Aussie fans. If you're going to make such a move then do it properly. I eagerly await the day she asks an umpire at a clay court tournament to "kop a squiz" at the mark.

"But I don't have a microphone," said the announcer.

"Use this," said Dasha, handing him a spare racquet.

So, speaking into the handle of the racquet as though it was a microphone, he announced "Ladies and gentlemen, Australia's own Daria Gavrilova!" as Dasha marched out onto the court as though it was Rod Laver Arena.

I'm not sure if this is a clever bit of mental preparation, visualising the forthcoming big event, or a sign that she's adorably mad. Probably both.

Omg Daria

Lost 3&3 to Karo, pretty expected (I actually thought there would be bakery products involved tbh )

Good tournament Dasha, did well to defend her points

Good luck to Dasha. Hopefully, she beats the servebot.

Upset Timea, 63 57 64, to defend her fourth round points!

Now Karo Pliskova. Has some work to do: is 0-2 against her without taking a set. GL to Dasha!

Re: Daria Gavrilova

Now a funny pic I made of "Dasha" pouting because of a slob fan

It's a GIF in very low quality on this forum but the poster is available in maxi quality on the website!
I love her but also love Timea Bacsinszky (I live in the same town as her), so next match gonna be a heartbreaker :-(



You can download the high quality posters for free by clicking on the previews

The official single tweet of the picture ready to be shared with your friends fan of Daria

Bested Ana, 62 16 64

One round away from matching her performance from last year! Timea Bacsinszky is next. Dasha is 2:0 against her.

(22)Daria Gavrilova v Naomi Broady

GL to her! Has 4th round points to defend. 1-all against Naomi, but 1-0 on hardcourt.

Re: Daria Gavrilova

I'm interested to see how Dasha goes in Sydney - opens against a qualifier.

I think she struggled with the pressure of being defending champion at the Hopman Cup and didn't play to her ability. A good experience for her heading into the AO where she will be seeded for the first time in her career and will have high expectations off the back of last year's 4th Rd run.

Hopefully she can keep her emotions in check, that's the key.
