50-50 Dinara is a darkhorse, and so is Marat.

I have more faith in Marat than in Dinara.

Dinara's mom is kinda hard on her.

I think Dinara is talented.

I didn't know about the new coach. That's positive.

Well, I wish the best for the both of them.
But I hope and I think (but I hope more) Marat will go longer than her.

Well i've fallen in love with Dinara after sydney last week, so i would love to see her do well but yeh you have to think that Marat has a better chance of doing well because he seems to be on a mission and is playing some good tennis.

I like Dinara but I give Marat the definite edge. I hope and expect to see him around in week #2.

Marat probably, but her draw isn't too hard either. At least when Clijsters doesn't go through.

SINCE THERE'S NO TENNIS ACTION I WENT FOR TONGUE ACTION

Re: Can Dinara outlast Marat in OZ Open?

after seeing marat play his first round with real conviction (i know, i cheated), i'd say it's unlikely.

Re: Can Dinara outlast Marat in OZ Open?

No way. Marat can beat anyone in the whole AO mens draw, the same cannot be said for Dinara in the women's draw. And Marat seems to be playing well too, I saw him today and he played great, apart from some minor concetration lapses.

Provided Marat is fully fit. Just the edge on Marat. Though, Dinara has become among the best 30 players on the Wtatour. Wish them both a very good Aus-Open.
