Dinara really have to fix the serve. She was going for it, but its worth nothing if she lose all points anyway. Needs first serve more penetrating, and second more steady. Most important thing. Serve is one big key always.
Well,the H2H WAS 3-3 prior to yesterday,and that includes Dinarik's strong comeback to beat Masha at RG '08,so she couldn't be THAT easy when she's at her best...but I agree that the current Dinara is far less of a challenge to Big Masha....Still,I'm glad to see Dinara at least halfway back on the scene now...and I think she'll survive longer than the other,more-fragile Sucky Server Twin who fires coaches left and right and is bound for another huge slump probably.........Heck,I'll be so happy if Dinara wins a slam one day that I'll kiss a female truck driver on the lips

I blame the jet lag. Anyway, still a good week for her.
Keep fighting, Dinara! Davai!

Poor thing was probably tired. After all, she hadn't played four singles matches in a row to completion since Cincinnati 09.

Are you serious about that? I was wondering before the match...


If you go I hope you come back sometime.

Safina looked demoralized.
Sharapova played really well today,so Safina shouldn't be disappointed. Anyway she had a great tournament here,time for Miami!

Well,Dinara is a competitive gal so she won't be happy with the end result...and,for HER sake,I'm sorry that her last match wasn't closer.However,I'm more inclined to believe now that she might finally be back on track

Well,after seeing the match I have the following conclusions-
Dinara's serve was shaky,but she was going for it.Big serves you know,so 16 DFs had to come.
When it comes to ground strokes,again Dinara was trying to be aggressive which is good,in the process hitting winners as well as UE's.
Well,the main change was mentally,she was fighting for every point,she had that determination to win in her eyes,just showed how much she wanted to win.
As Dinara herself said "You can't forget playing tennis,it's just the problem lies with the head,mental " something like that.

And she was real solid mentally today.
As for DFs,well she used to hit a lot of DFs when she was No.1 as well,not 16 though.

hope ES shows this afternoon, Sam should have played really-really bad if she couldn't win a set. i mean more than 20% of her points came from Dinara's DF. THATS A LOT.
whatever, i'm happy. Hoping she can make next match competitive too.
Yeah,I only saw the BP stats at the time I posted that...and was unaware that she had served 16 DFs,too...obviously,you're right in THIS case...and I imagine that Stosur must've been a bit subpar as well

Re: BNP Paribas Open 2011-Indian Wells,USA|Premier|

yes.the DFs is crazy!but it's much better than before few DFs and high rate of 1st serve in but it's useless she couldnt build any advantage by serve.her serve was too weak!I just hope she will improve her serve slowly with more matches she plays.neednt so hurry
The most important thing is she gets some confidence,at least now it's not hopeless anymore to see her play it's still early to talk about something like if she will be top10 or even top1 again, focus on every match at the moment.Davai

Dinara says Marat has been helping her with her serve to lessen the pain.
got to cut out that many DF's as well
good to see her gaining much needed confidence and all before clay season

I've heard differing things about Dinara's performance, but everyone seems to have thought Sam absolutely sucked. Still an amazing win for Dinara, but if you're looking for a way she could possibly serve 16 double faults in 2 sets and only get broken three times, I think you need look no farther than her opponent's quality of play.

Or lack thereof.

The indication I'm getting from comments around the board is that this was not a high quality match. Sam's rallying was particularly abysmal, apparently. But it seems at least Dina was hitting heavier than before.

I would like to see it for myself though. Different people see matches differently.
