Singles draw is quite good considering she could have got so many bigger names in first round. Li lost to Cirstea in 2r at Wimbledon. Doubles draw is worse though as 1r Radwanska sisters, 2nd round Huber/Raymond.

I'm praying Daniela has got a wildcard for mixed doubles...

Given Daniela's form since she came back from injury and given the quality of the field most opponents would be tough. Daniela beat Li the last time they played on grass at Eastbourne last year. Daniela is the underdog, so all the pressure will be on Li Na and maybe being the underdog while knowing that she's beaten Li Na will have a liberating effect on Daniela.
The second round opponent would be Paszek or Cornet and they'd be tough as Paszek plays amazingly on grass while Cornet in her best form in years, winning Bad Gastein albeit on clay, so she'll be confident.

I think Daniela and Dominika have a decent chance against the Radwanskas, but Huber and Raymond will be very tough in the second round.

"Li Na is a very good player with a lot of success, although it has recently failed and so much of the grass is not completely at home. Of course, there was also much weaker potential súperiek the first round, but with a lot nenavyberáte. It is generally known Daniela since the April of the Fed Cup due to health problems still spellbound. Hopefully that will start now. should keep its fingers crossed," said Davis Cup team captain Miloslav Mecir SR.

"Daniela Hantuchova will meet Na Li, who is attached top ten, but the grass is not as strong as on hard surfaces. Daniel from Spain in Fed Cup due to injuries and could not get the right pace, I wish her ​​the right to Olympic tournament managed to find an optimal game," he said Slovakian tennis tours in London Miloslav Mecir.

1 round Daniela vs. Li NA :D
Like most of us, when a draw comes out I get nervous if Dani opens with Serena, Vika, a qualifier, a lucky loser or the #700 ranked player, especially these days. For some unexplainable reason, however, I love it when she draws Li, and I am quite confident!

My fondest wish for Daniela at the Games is that she has a magical experience on the Wimbledon courts, where every break goes her way, and every ache just goes away! Let's Go, Daniela!!

Tennis player will miss the opening of the Olympics. Represent their Mečíř
SITA | 27 July 2012 14:16

Lukas Lacko, Dominika Cibulkova and Daniela Hantuchova attend their first matches round of tennis singles at the Olympics in London on Saturday, due to miss Friday night opening ceremony.

"For tennis players there just go around and I can coach Luke Mato Liptak," said SITA head of the Slovak team Miloslav Mecir and said: "Tennis complex is relatively far from the Olympic Village, so there will be a long time to travel on Saturday. Ceremony is rather tiresome, many people go walking, standing, waiting." As is known, Martin Klizan on Friday not before 16.50 h will play a semifinal on clay ATP event in Kitzbuehel, so the British capital until the weekend arrives.

Players, after two - three weeks, returned to Wimbledon All England Lawn area Tennis and Croquet Club, was found perfectly regenerated grass. "It looks very well, training courts are in perfect condition. I see no sign of wear. It's just 'center' I had missed the check," said the holder of gold from the 1988 Seoul Mečíř and continued: "As for the parameters in an unusual letnejšom date will depend on the weather from day to day, but as to how long the courts will remain covered when they are not going to play. It's also not live steamy as ever. grass but works quite vividly, so probably will be comfortable with the juice and the ball can be wetter. According to our present knowledge would generally not cause any appreciable differences from Wimbledon. "

A question mark hangs over the possible representation of SR in mixed doubles for 16 pairs (a dozen directly quartet on "wild card" from the International Tennis Federation). Closing date for entries is Tuesday 31 July at 12.00 CET, list of eligible couples will be known on the same day. "The application we give, but given the status of our players renkingové about we just hope the wild card, the one we have already reached the doubles men. While I hesitate to pair a specific composition, we wait for what will be the situation after the first round of singles," explained M. Mečíř.

It's a pity that Daniela will miss the opening ceremony but she has to give herself the best chance to win her match and it'll be the same for the other players and a lot of athletes in other sports. It would be lovely if she could get into the mixed doubles.

Lukas Lacko, Dominika Cibulkova and Daniela Hantuchova attend their first matches round of tennis singles at the Olympics in London on Saturday, due to miss Friday night opening ceremony.

Defiant Daniela? :o
Her comment on her FB page: "And what an incredible opening ceremony tonight..super cool!!"
This was posted between 12:30 & 1:00 AM Big Ben time, which makes me believe she participated. We'll never know, but perhaps she told the Slovak Olympic higher-ups to jam it where the sun don't shine! Dani, as almost always, gets it. The Olympics are an experience as well as a sporting event. She knows this is her last one as an athlete. She can't be at the closing ceremony due to the Montreal tourney. If she went to the opening, bravo! Good for her! Her match today is 3rd up, and Isner plays the match before hers. Dani will have plenty of time to rest and prepare, so that became a non-issue, and no one should bring this up should she lose (which she won't!). Let's Go, Daniela!!

Daniela might have just watched the ceremony on television.

As for her first-round match-up, ANYTHING could happen. As we all know, unpredictability and these two players go hand-in-hand...

Absolutely superb win by Daniela. :wav: :wav:

I just got the third set and Daniela played really well and she served well, so she was able to get through her service games easily and was dictating the points while she was able to put pressure on Li when Li was serving and she was able to get the break at 3-2 and held serve easily the rest of the way.

I'm so delighted for her as she's gone through a lot over the past couple of months so to beat a good player like Li at the Olympics is great for her and will give her such a boost of confidence.

SayaNAra, Li! Sometimes, even with Dani, you just know. I was only able to see one game, the last one of the 1st set. Despite a DF on one of her set points, Daniela looked sharp and seemed to be hitting a little harder than in recent matches. You guys can confirm for me if that was true throughout. Really feels good that she took control in the 3rd and that she served it out. Please, let this be the beginning of something magical! Let's Go, Daniela!!
