You have to feel for Daniela Hantuchova. Well, I don’t know if you have to, but I do. She came into yesterday’s match 0-9 down against Venus, played probably some of the best (and toughest) tennis I’ve ever seen her play against a patchy and inconsistent opponent … and still lost, 64 in the third.
It’s harsh, but there were some really encouraging signs that working with the Adidas Player Development Programme and Darren Cahill in particular might really pay off for her. I’ve always felt like she had much more to give.
As for Venus, she’s up against Agnieszka Radwanska next, who’s stealthily been on good form of late. One suspects, however, not good enough …
