Long, out, long, too long, long, that one's too long, out, long, out, that one's outta here....sheesh, the aim of the game is to hit the ball inside the lines!!

Maybe she should take up baseball, she's good at hitting the ball a long way! :P

So, an error strewn first set, 4-6, she starts the second set and at 30-40 serves a DF :(

Broken again, 0-3. At least she seems to have cut out all the long shots and has taken to blasting even the simplest of shots into the net.

Needless to say, the 4-6 2-6 scoreline says that the second set was even worse than the first set. Woz didn't even have to break sweat, she just sat there and waited for Daniela to make a mistake, which nine times out of ten, she did.

Poor Daniela. She wouldn't have beaten Serena, but a quarter-finals would have been really nice...the Olympics came round a little too soon for Daniela to recover completely from her injury..

Wozniacki served lights out tennis today....

Daniela didn't play badly but Wozniacki played extremely solid tennis, only 3 errors...

We might have to agree to disagree on that one Eddy. Apart from a few flashes down the line, the rest of Daniela's game seemed to be errors. Woz didn't have to do much at all to win games.

This is so disappointing, I'm gutted for Daniela because the OLympics means so much to her. It would have been lovely if she could have won this but it wasn't to be.

Wozniacki served very well and she won a lot of easy points on her first serve and that allowed her to dictate a lot of rallies. The pivotal moments in the match were Daniela's service game at 3-3 in the first set when she made some errors to give Wozniacki the break and from then Wozniacki's level went up and also the first game of the second when Daniela had a sloppy service game to give Wozniacki the early break.

Wozniacki played well, probably her best match for months and her serving was very good, but it's disappointing that Daniela's level dropped at crucial times in the match to give the advantage to Wozniacki.

Still, I'd have taken 3rd round before the start of the Olympics and it's still Daniela's best Olympics ever, she had some good performances here and she won 2 more matches than all the other Slovak players combined. Here's hoping that Daniela can use the momentum from here to have a good run for the rest of the year and that she does better in Rio.



Daniela Hantuchova is right about everything.

Frustrating. She is so much better than what she showed today. You know Wozniacki is going to be a wall,but some of those errors were inexcusable. :cry:

"Today it was not part of my ideal performance. Too bad I did not lay down the game from previous games. Caroline played very well, very well served, on my part was a bit tied. The service was just about the biggest difference. I'm sorry, because I was looking forward to this fight. I have to admit that rival today was better and won deservedly," Daniela Hantuchova.

"Caroline played well, I did not know the contrary, repeat performances of the previous duels here at Wimbledon. Main difference was in dose, while I did not really areola to a first service, she was very servovala the match. First gems were OK, the state 3 : 3 I stupidly lost service when I made four errors. There is a bit broken, it can against such a rival can not afford. Wozniacki played as consistently as always, excellent service surprised," she said after the match, Daniela Hantuchova.

I am crushed, guys. I fooled myself. Daniela's early play was a great tonic for me as my wife's struggles continue, and I started to believe in something that in reality could not happen. And part of me really, really feels for Dani. I imagine she stayed professional in speaking to the press, but when she's alone tonight with her childhood dream now gone for good, I can only imagine her sadness. Clearly this was her last Olympics...I can't begin to imagine her being there in 2016. And really, what's left? We would be enraptured, yet shocked, if she won a slam. She'll continue to play for awhile, I'm sure, and maybe there will be a nice win here or there against a top 10 player, maybe a title or 2. But I can't see that signature moment anymore. :cry: Nevertheless, like all of us, as long as Dani plays, I'll root my heart out for her in every match. Let's Go, Daniela!

Mečíř Daniela pleasantly surprised
Boris Vanya | 2 August 2012 15:34
Exclusive
While talking, a little girl with a big tennis ball patiently waiting for his autograph. Olympic champion of Seoul Miloslav Mecir works in London as head of the Slovak tennis players. On Wednesday evening, the mission ended its work. The tournament is the last goodbye Representative Slovak Daniela Hantuchova.

From whom you would expect in most Olympic tournament?
It would please me if the boys went through the first round, but played to its limits. Martin Klizan against Andy Roddick and Lukas Lacko Petzschner against the Germans had a hard task. They are still young, were the first Olympics to gain experience. A year ago, not even Ranking position to be able to ever play in the Olympics. I was hoping to catch Dominic, played as well in America to the concrete. Unfortunately, against Bulharke slowly rozbiehala and tennis is true that when you play, self-esteem decreases and vice versa. Daniela again pleasantly surprised, defeated in the first round snack deployed for Li, which was a good result.

You believed that it could go in the third round over Dane Caroline Wozniacki?
I have to say against Daniela, because fighting and played some great balls, but Wozniacki had its day, was excellent.

Some tennis players including Dominika Cibulkova and Lukas Lacko of the Olympic tournament were embarrassing impressions nepozdávala to their organization, less interested audience. How are you feeling?
Obviously, compared with the original Olympic tournament Wimbledon, the pros do with an experienced staff. However, the Olympics is giant. Volunteers took a while until zabehali, restaurant and function differently. But it does not bother me. The atmosphere at the Olympics is escalating. Too bad our players missed a tournament more, it might change your mind.

Slovakia did not get a free card in the mixed doubles, while some countries have the spider and the two pairs. What do you think?
The mix is ​​nasadzovalo by position in the ranking - the limit was two couples in the country, so even after the award wild cards we ended seven footnotes. It's fair. The rules are set in advance and must be respected. Daniela Hantuchova had good results in doubles, but would hardly have added it to someone from the boys.

During the match with Hantuchova Wozniacki was half-empty auditorium of the central court. How do you back fondly atmosphere?
It is a little noisier than usual, but in the grand slam are certainly more people live - after these paths can not walk, so there is a crowd. I do not know if fans prefer to duel Daniela any other matches. Djokovic and Murray have played a central villages before a packed auditorium and it was a pleasant sight.

Mečířova analysis: Daniela surprise, the men had more

LONDON - The Slovak tennis players in the tournament Wednesday evening at the Olympics in the third round women's singles osemfinálového defeated Daniela Hantuchova of Danko Caroline Wozniacki eighth attached as 4:6, 2:6. All other Slovak Olympic trials were completed in the first round.

More joy he has brought women's competition. Daniela Hantuchova among its top 16 procedure shifted Slovak maximum score at the Olympics in the era of national independence. "Daniela pleasantly surprised. Did not have does not go first round. I have nothing I could reproach her. Each subsequent round was for her and for us already a kind of bonus. success is that Daniela has won two games, especially the victory over the Chinese women attached to Li has value. Vozniacka against him presented with style, hats off to her performance, the objective must admit that Daniela was in the battle by the weaker," continued the analysis of performances former tennis player, who at the Olympic Games in Seoul 1988 won the jersey of former Czechoslovakia in the gold medal in singles and bronze in doubles.

"Dominika can go for sporting little bit of luck also. I was hoping to get caught. Although the Grand Slam at Wimbledon three weeks ago fell right in the first round, before the Olympics played well in America on the concrete. I believed that once again come to the right winning rhythm, but it did not happen," said Milos Mečíř.

Tennis toe is very balanced in his view, success is not so easy. "Tennis is specific, that nothing in it can not be deleted, each ball can determine the existence or nonexistence. If only it were to be our just learned that they are something sticking out of the tournament," wished the former great tennis player, who was at the highest ATP ranking at the turn of February and March 1988, when the world was four.

The Olympic tennis tournament is in his own characteristics. Players in tournaments during the year, certainly accustomed to a different standard. Especially in terms Lukas Lacko and Dominika Cibulkova was feeling a little disappointed in the conditions that were in the Olympic village.

"It's different than the normal tournament. Can expect that it will be here at the same organizational level as the Grand Slam Wimbledon. However, this annual provides a professional, is to 'run in' people. This is a little different. But I think that everything else works as it should. At least I feel comfortable. the atmosphere increases, the stands are gradually being met. pity that you have not taken it longer. might change their minds if they win a few rounds. I wish them to make them better next time zadařilo to performance-went up to have more chances like this time," optimistically referred to both restless in the Slovak tennis team.

Overall, the Olympic tournament in his excellent level. While Slovaks in it except Daniela Hantuchova nezažiarili nothing serious, but not disappointed. "We must cherish every successful result to be achieved. Let's be happy that Daniele managed to succeed twice. It was nice to see Slovak victories," he said Milos Mečíř.

Mečíř expected more from Cibulková pleased him Hantuchova

Miloslav Mecir was at the Olympic Games as Chef-coach tennis players. The performance by our players he played it, what should. He waited more of Dominika Cibulkova. On the contrary he is very pleased with Daniela Hantuchova.

How do you evaluate the performance of Slovak tennis players on the Olympic tournament?
"Every round that we uhrali would be extra. I'm glad that Daniela managed to pass through two rival, however, Li is the top player. On Wednesday already Wozniacki, who played very well, not enough. Lukas Lacko and Martin Klizan had a very difficult task. They were happy to cede here and took the experience. Before we put anything in it to get here, the absence of the well in the ranking. They played so enjoyed the performance. I can not say I was disappointed."

Daniela Hantuchova was expressed that the Olympics mainly sees through you. How do you influenced?
"It's nice to hear when a new generation of the positive examples. It is good that you all were. I wish them to push the performance and achieve better results next time."

In doubles, losing both of our couples clearly. You spoke to them, often tried to doubles?
"Yes, if you want to improve, must play a more debla against tough opposition. Our specialists doubles as Miso Mertinak and Filip Polasek will not get here. Lukas and Martin are started on a wild card, which must be recognized. Moreover, in doubles, there is a lot of competition. Djokovic lost the first round and Federer in the second. Our will to learn."

From whom have been waiting for most?
"I told that I would be delighted if some guys managed to surprise round and would. For girls, I was hoping to catch Dominic, because the concrete has played very well. I thought that it catches the rhythm and the ripple, but in the first round against Pironkova knew to get up to speed and escaped the tight first set, which decided the match. It became so well in the tie-break and Luke Martin also lost to the last service at 5:7. Daniela again pleasantly surprised, against Wozniacki, we can expect that it may surprise you, but ~ not played badly. In short, Dane eliminate its weapons."

Third round Daniela Hantuchova is the best tennis player of our location in the era of independence. Why is it that our players managed to get grandslamoch the last laps of the Olympic tournament is not it?
"It is difficult to evaluate me. It can not be compared to anything. It is a sport and the arts in their own way. Daniela is now struggling to grandslamoch and there as if it started from the second round and went through two rival. Let's be glad that this could at least."

Olympic atmosphere is different than the Grand Slam tournaments?
"Yes, one can say so. Click here to hear the chants of applause, the fans from the same countries zhŕknu together. I think over grandslam more people live here. Matches the top tips I was pleased that the central court was sold out, but through a grandslam there are so many people that can not walk the paths that divide the different courts."

The match with Hantuchova Wozniacki, half empty Centre Court, you experienced something similar at Wimbledon?
"I had similar experiences with it. Maybe people want to see matches on other courts. Most centers filled lives."

OK, full marks to Serena. She deserves all the props; she fought through a lot to return to being Serena. And, of course, we all remember just how much she and Venus dominated the tour in the past. But.....Really, Maria? Really, Vika? #1 & #3 in the world, and you win a grand total of FOUR games combined? On one of the world's biggest stages? Is Serena THAT much better than you? Or, just how intimidated by her are you two? Geez, Daniela would have done better than that by herself, say 6-3, 6-2. We'll have to hope that after Serena completes the hat trick in New York next month, she'll feel that her legacy is totally secure and she'll let her mind wander into other projects as she has done before; then maybe someone will beat her once in a while. Or that she'll choose to only play the slams, the manditories and a couple of other events. I'd rather not consider the alternative; we'll be out of hope. :|



Let's Go, Daniela!

I have become less of a Serena or Williams sisters fan lately because I think of al the women who play tournament after tournament the the Williams's show up at the majors, get the best times and courts. But i have to say Serena, as of late, deserves what she has done. Totally in control and blowing her opponents away. I do agree with Alex that if she wins the US Open maybe she will move on. I felt sorry for Maria today. I don't think anything was going to stop Serena from getting the gold.
