i thought dinara might have a breakthrough year this year, having taken a set of a couple of top 10ers in slams last year, and winning against 2 pretty good players already this year. she took a set but couldnt hold it together after the first set, mauresmo was getting everything back and dinara wasnt serving very well. one thing for sure is that dinara doesnt have a plan b and thats want hurt her in the match, no plan b and her game is very one dimensional. she was hitting well when the ball was coming onto the racket but when mauresmo sliced it or floated it back dinara couldnt control it very well.

Good test for Momo she needs that cause it will make her stronger for the second week, and she did not play a warm up tournement. Safina talented but a bit Vera like and gets furstratred way too quick.

Interesting match. Watched the entire 3 setter "live".

First set was all Dinara controls, AM was doing her usual
sitting in the back nothing shots, plus her serve was crap.
Everything was going straight
to Dinara's hitting range.

2nd set, AM wakes up, and hits deeper, cuts UE, serves better
and get's her butt off the baseline and finished points at the net.
Mid way in the second set, fatigue and a whole lot of long rallies
wears Dinara down a bit. She was sucking air, and doing a homage
to Patrick Rafter with too much sweating.

3rd set. Dinara is melting, really melting. She is red face, sweating
buckets and huffing after each point, during change over every second.
AM is simply starting and playing immaculate tennis. Dinara can't
seem to get any range or serves in anymore.

End of match.

The last two sets were far more tight than the score indicates. Most of the games in the second set were long deuce games.

Dinara just died, that's what happened. After she couldn't bring it back to 3-2 in the second, it was a total tank.

dinara was hitting her shots much better in the first set, she was forcing mauresmo outwide alot especially on the backhand so when mauresmo did slice the ball had to travel much further and therefore she hit alot of them into the net. the the last 2 sets dinara wasnt getting mauresmo outwide, she hit down the middle a lot more and wasnt getting as close to the lines or getting quite as good angles. but mauresmo certainly did pick up her game and played really well. she looks very fit and is getting lots of balls back and she is mixing up her shots as good or better than i have seen her do before so she looks to be a contender.
