Arrow Back in Europe: Paris Indoors

For the first time since aaaaaaages Daniela is playing the Open GDF Suez.
I really never understood why she decided to skip this tournament for so many years, since she really loves the city. But at least she took two titles in Pattaya, so it was for a good cause.

The draw wasn't too kind and she faces Erakovic in R1, to whom she lost in Charleston last year , and, if she gets through, there will be Maria waiting for her in the 2nd round. It's been a while since these two have last played, so it would definitely be a good opportunity for Daniela to try her best against the #1 seed in Paris.

And she's teaming up with Petra in doubles. I really like the team.
They received a WC and they face Garcia and Cornet in the 1st round, who also received a WC. If they win, they might face Errani and Vinci in R2, again the #1 seeds.

Tough luck in both draws. I'm really looking forward to seeing her against Maria again. But firstly I really hope she beats Erakovic. Good luck, Daniela!

Singles:

[1] Sharapova (RUS) vs. BYE
Hantuchova (SVK) vs. Erakovic (NZL)
Meusburger (AUT) vs. Qualifier
Barthel (GER) vs. [8] Flipkens (BEL)

Doubles:

[1] Errani / Vinci vs. Hrdinova / Klemenschits
[WC] Hantuchova / Kvitova vs. [WC] Cornet / Garcia
[4] Babos / Mladenovic vs. Barthel / Moulton-Levy
Voracova / Zahlavova-Strycova vs. Husarova / Rosolska

Re: Back in Europe: Paris Indoors

Erakovic is a hard draw for R1 indoor match but the whole draw is tough (excluding Yvonne and Garcia). Daniela lost to her in indoors in Quebec.

I would really like to see Hantuchova-Sharapova match on an indoor court! I really hope she overcomes Marina so we can see their clash!
Nice decision to play doubles. It will be just for fun with Petra.

^ She didn't play Paris because most of the times she couldn't because of ranking, like last year in Stuttgart -> Fes!

Re: Back in Europe: Paris Indoors

Well, I don't think she didn't play because of rankings. She has always been around the Top 30, which is more than enough for a direct entry in Paris. She dropped really low last year (around the Top 80 ) after the Pattaya points dropped off.

She starts her campaign tomorrow. She and Marina play the 1st match on Center Court and the she's also scheduled to play the 4th match on Court 1 with Petra.

Let's get both wins, Dani !!! Good luck !!!

Well, the match is on youtube. She certainly is hitting the ball well! Hopefully it's a good sign for the Maria match

Oh well... It's still Wednesday and the tournament is already over for her.
I really expected some fight from her. I didn't watch the match, but from what I read it was a closer 2nd set than the scoreline suggests. In the 1st she was hopeless.

Let's wait for a better performance in Doha and Dubai, where she defends some points.

She did fight in the 2nd set to be fair but her serve and movement is exposed way too much in matches against the top players and her inability to convert break points don't help either . Hopefully though this is a wake up call for Dani- I don't know how limited she is because of her shoulder injury but she has to improve her 1st and 2nd serves (amongst other things). I don't think she won a point on her second serve today.

Re: Back in Europe: Paris Indoors


Actually it wasn't a clash at all
Daniela is soooo slow that is almost hard to believe that a tennis player can be that slow. She may set a new WR for being "clueless" on court.

I am a bitter on her because I was expecting something more. 0 & 1 against Sharapova Indoors? C'mon Danka... Where have you left the original Hantuchova spirit??

I remember her losing like this to Dementieva in 2003 in Amelia Island. It was also tragic. At least, she didn't get double bageled like Sharapova

I think she actually goes on court thinking that she can't win-which while realistic, is a crappy attitude to take.

Re: Back in Europe: Paris Indoors

yeah I agree with Matty, she seemes already defeated before the first point. As for th match, the second set was way closer than the score may suggest and Dani played some very good points (15 w and 8 Ues in the set I think) she wasn't able to take her chances though and Maria played a brillant match so kudos to her.
