Wasn't it Dinara who said (in an interview) that she didn't
mind playing on the first Sunday? Then she gets two days off?

Yeah somehow I doubt they'll show it here either.
All well, Dinara will just have to get into the second week so that they will show her for sure!

I saw the match. Dinara played solidly, she will need to go up to another level to keep going in RG but she did what she had to do and got through round 1. Dinara has never played well in slams, so it was a good solid start and hopefully now the nerves will decrease.

You can see she has confidence at the moment though. She didn't panic when she was 1-3 and 2-4 down in the 2nd set or when she was broken the first time she served for it.

Dinara has to take it one match at a time. Grand slams are different ball games and Dinara has never produced her best in GSs. Dinara has a good draw but it is also tough. Maria is a great fighter and Safarova is also in there and she is 2-0 in H2H with Dinara.

Good Luck in round 2 Dinara. It will be either Vinci or Sromova.

I think Dinara has a great chance of making it to the SF's. Look who's in her quarter - Sharapova and Kuznetsova. I would be (pleasantly) surprised if Maria even made it to the quarters and she just beat Svetlana in Rome, which should give her a lot of confidence going up against her.
