Was Daja's name always Daja, or was she once Daniela??

Anyone know who she is??

I checked some H2H's a realized Venus had a win over her, but I've never heard of her.

:confused:

Anyone??

Yes, Daja is short for Daniela. I believe she is from the czech republic.She also had a big fat win against Seles at the us open a couple of years ago.

No different from other players that shorten their names. Kvetaslava/Kveta Hrdlikova, Tzipora/Tzipi Obizalor etc...


However, while we are on the subject, I have always wondered, are Sandra and Annamaria Cecchini the same player? If so why did Sandra start out as Annamaria and then change her name?

While she's a Czech citizen, Daja lives in Germany. And anyone who thinks Dani is thin ought to see Miss "Bedan-unda"! :eek:

When I first saw her play against Venus in Philly she went by the name Daniela Bedanova and later in the year she went by Daja. I know I was confused by it. :)
