Coach gave her bad advice today-told her to hit up the middle and wait for Petra to make a mistake. That might work if Petra was having a bad day,but if she isn't then her superior weight of shot will always force Daniela into error,which is what happened several times today. Her only chance was to play first strike tennis. Oh,and better movement would have helped too. Some of the balls she let go past her were just embarrassing.

Got chopped in the doubles 0-6 3-6. AMG didn't hold serve once.

I'm guessing she's in freefall? She had QF points to defend.

Anyway she always has to play her on a fast hardcourts at a time, when Dani is not close to her best in opposite to Petra, so a bad match up + a bad luck ends with this kind of result.
But she still has won 2 matches here and she can build on that. She made a big progress during these 2 last weeks. Very proud of her
I couldn't agree with you more. Better results the last 2 weeks. Maybe if she had a better draw things would have worked out differently, but either way I'm happy with her week. Petra... I hate you lol

Dani might as well go on court dressed as a punching bag whenever she plays Petra.

I hope she loses early in doubles so that she can go directly to KL and get some deserved rest.
At least she had a good win over a Top 30 player this week.

NID, sadly. Time to get stuck into those MM events and get the ranking back up.

2-6, 1-6.
One way traffic with a few nice winners.

1-1, held her opening serve game and got to deuce on Kvitova's, which is probably about as well as she's ever started in this matchup.

Re: Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship

Even if Kvitty plays like a crap, she will be always in position to beat Daniela. It's a bad matchup ^^.
Few games won't be bad, specially testing her serve and trying to improve it.

Yah I expect a loss unless Kvitova plays like crap, it's just a terrible matchup for her sort of like Davenport
