Cheering Eleni Daniilidou in 2014!!!!
 
Sorry,could not come with something more original. Here's Eleni's cheering thread for 2014 season :D Hoping it is a successful one :bounce:

I hope this won't be her last cheering thread :scared:
Her ranking will plummet after her AO points drop off :sad:

She starts in qualies this year in Melbourne. A little different than usual since she isn't playing a warmup. Its also unlikely that she plays doubles since she is currently 3 out (with Tatishvili), but the recent injuries of players like Pennetta, Pavlyuchenkova, and Robson give us some hope that she might sneak in :p

Her section:
(1)Sharon Fichman v Belinda Bencic
Nastassja Burnett v Eleni Daniilidou
(wc)Priscilla Hon v Nicole Gibbs
(wc)Maddison Inglis v (19)Marta Sirotkina

Pame Eleni! :cheer:
It is not bad but you never know. It would be upsetting if she lost to Burnett, but the second round is a little difficult but I still think she can do it if she plays well ;)

First let's beat Burnett though! :bounce:

3-6 4-6 :sad:
Basically she was probably very rusty since she had a lot of DF and she started down 0-5 serving 18% first serve, then she fought but eventually lost the first 3-6 :(
In the second set she was up 2-0 but couldn't take advantage of the break lead and lost it 4-6 :sad:

Probably she should've played a warmup tournament to shake off the rust since she was struggled in the beginning and then improved as the match went on :shrug:

Oh well, her ranking will now be between 250 and 300 after the AO :scared:
I hope she can do well in some challengers to rebuild her ranking and make RG qualies :shrug:
I also hope she can sneak into the doubles draw here...

Re: Cheering Eleni Daniilidou in 2014!!!!
 
In the end they would've gotten into the doubles draw but Eleni and Anna probably left Australia already :sad:

Lost Pattaya QR1 vs. (2) Krunic (#153) 4-6 3-6 :hug:
Hard to win when you hit 10 DF...
Doubles with Krunic here, they play a Thai pair in the first round, they should at least win that one...

Reached QF but lost to Lertcheewakarn/Zvonareva 1-6 6-2 6-10 :sad:

Where is everyone else?

Lost to Watson 1-6 3-6 in 100K Midland :(
This loss was expected as Watson is in good form, but still she could've had a better shot if she didn't hit so many DFs :rolleyes:

She's playing doubles with Krunic and they got a really tough R1 draw, Hradecka/Siniakova. Hradecka is a great doubles player who has won slams and mixed slams and an Olympic silver medal. Even last year she won the US Open doubles and I think RG mixed doubles. She has no business in doubles at a challenger. Siniakova is one of the rising stars of the tour and she won three junior doubles slams last year!

However, Eleni and Krunic won 2-6 6-4 10-5 :worship:

1-6 3-6 against Govortsova/Oprandi in QF :(
Watson won the singles (without dropping a set) and doubles titles so Eleni's singles loss doesn't look that bad :shrug:

Re: Cheering Eleni Daniilidou in 2014!!!!
 
Only singles at 25K Nottingham:
(1)Ekaterina Bychkova (RUS) v Lena-Marie Hofmann (GER)
(Q)Quirine Lemoine (NED) v (Q)Chantal Skamlova (SVK)
Eleni Daniilidou (GRE) v (Q)Manisha Foster (GBR)
(7)Diana Marcinkevica (LAT) v (Q)Katy Dunne (GBR)

She should win R1, but that Foster girl gives me nightmares from when she came out of nowhere to beat Papamichail two years ago :lol:

hellas719 Feb 22nd, 2014 05:27 AM

Re: Cheering Eleni Daniilidou in 2014!!!!
 
6-4 6-3 :yeah:
Then lost R2 1-6 1-6 to (7) Marcinkevica :help:
I mean Marcinkevica is ranked higher (currently at her career-high) and is good indoors, but this is a bad scoreline :(

She has, however, tweeted that she hopes to return to Midland next year so hopefully this season won't be her last :)

Re: Cheering Eleni Daniilidou in 2014!!!!
 
Not much going on with her lately, she only played a 50K in France and lost QR1 in three sets to Tinjic (who eventually qualified), and Eleni played doubles there and reached the final with Barrois :p

WTA Kuala Lumpur:
Singles MDWC, R1 vs. (6) Z.Diyas KAZ

Playing doubles with Magda Linette POL ;)

Re: Cheering Eleni Daniilidou in 2014!!!!
 
2-6 2-6 :bigcry:
It's a shame that she drew a seed when the draw was ridiculously weak in the first place :(

Still, she hit 7 DFs in 8 service games. Obviously we've seen worse from her over the years, but she needs to serve better.

She was also 2/6 on break points while Diyas was 6/6...


Oh well. Better luck in doubles! ;)
