"I am extremely happy that I managed to win the finals, it was difficult and the last ball balanced match. I am very glad that the first time in his career, I managed to defend the title. Here I go again without a loss, what I would before the tournament too not believe me if someone had predicted it would. Today's victory, I appreciate all the more so that at the end I think I beat Maria particular condition - all the strain of recent weeks do not even know how I could succeed in it. Of course, a few light errors in the tie-break I am sorry if I have the status of 3:5 for gems in the first game finally tightened up so far. It was important to forget and move on from ball to ball, not to think of anything else to fight with all his strength. me very helped a group of Slovak fans, I felt their support, it fueled me. were great and I felt a bit like the Fed Cup. I tried to think of the last weekend in Bratislava on the court and do the same. I thanked them in a speech after game and we saw when I walked away from the areola, but there's always a lot of people, so I took off guard," said Daniela Hantuchova and added, "Kirilenko to view nepredvádza etxra nothing. I knew that it is in my hands - either you will aggressively go after those my balls, or I'll play it here its maintenance. certainly not on the part of some good tennis, but sometimes it takes if you focus only on the fact that something must always return the ball over the net to areola. Sometimes 'vyškriabala' unreal things. In the first game was just an error that I let her show her the game. in the third sete Maria fought for every ball. if I had more chances and it could be even more smoothly, but she often zaservovala well, played some good ball. I still felt that the issue is whether to enforce their own aggression."

"It's difficult to play in the heat. I played well in the Fed Cup and I wanted to keep the momentum here. But I love the conditions here as the courts are in the hotel and near the beach and the people are nice. I always play well under good conditions,'' the Slovak said.

Hantuchova admitted she was a superstitious person and had stuck to the same menu for the past seven days - chicken fried rice and salad. But having won the final, she could not wait to try something different. "It could be a pizza or anything. I also kept eating the same thing in Indian Wells and I won. I also love sticky rice with mangoes, which is my favourite Thai food. My hitting partner was bringing it to me all these days,'' the champion said with a smile.



"It was a much better match than last year's," Hantuchova said.

"It was a good game for me but it was difficult to defend the title. Maria played very well today and she fights for every point.

"We both wanted to win the title. I would like to come back again next year as the courts here really fit my game."




Daniela Hantuchova is right about everything.

Chicken fried rice for 7 straight days? And people question her will to win :?: :!:
One more wry observation: I may be a Daniela Maniac, but there are limits, like not waking the whole house at 4:00 AM to watch a stream on the desktop. So I will see the final on Tennis Channel tomorrrow. They gave it a 2 hour time slot. They don't know Daniela too well, do they? ;)



Let's Go, Daniela!

Patti1989: In New York, Tennis Channel is replaying the match at 7:00 PM and again at 10:00 PM. They list 2 programs at 9:00 and 9:30, but if they don't want to chop the match to pieces, they should pre-empt those shows and get as much of the match in as they can. Either way, have fun! I can't wait to see it, especially the last 3 games when Dani closes it out. Let's Go, Daniela!!
Un(Bleeping)believeable! They chose not to show Pattaya at all, instead running Bartoli/Kerber like 5 times! :evil: A Tennis Channel boycott is in order! Sorry, Patti, for the bum steer.



Let's Go, Daniela!
