I watched it. She started badly and she clearly has lack of rythm but she is a fighter! She gave all she had and never gave up. Great display of will!

Dinara is the #3 seed in Rome this week and had a R1 bye. She plays her R2 match against Dulgheru on Tuesday.

Dinara's ipad is now in the official press articles

Marat Safin gave his younger sister Dinara an iPad for her birthday last week, but it's doubtful that it contains an “Instantly Revive My Career” application.

She was anxious to come back and has said she did little on-court practice during the time off the tour. Not much practice = early losses. It will take time for her to get back on track, but the good thing is her back doesn't seem to be causing problems. The Rome website had an interesting write-up:
Quote:
Safina was a step slow throughout the match. Her service was below strength, her movement sluggish and in total, she faced no fewer than two dozen break points. The most alarming statistic was the 51 unforced errors she made, but never once did she give up, battling back from 0-4 in the first set to level at 4-4 and then taking the second set on a nip-and-tuck tie-break.

Dulgheru cannily took a comfort break after Safina had levelled, and the No.3 seed sat huddled under a towel as all the momentum she had just worked up slowly ebbed away. When the Romanian returned, it was all Safina could do to avoid the dreaded “bagel”, and she took only one of the last seven games.

“I can't say that I'm not experienced enough (to deal with the 15-minute break) but it was strange, yes,” lamented Safina after the match. “I had to move and serve, just to keep my body moving (during the break) but I didn’t, and then I started from nothing, and after that I made too many unforced errors.”

“Overall I think the game, particularly in the third set, was quite difficult and fast. In a second, I was 5-0 down after winning the second set. Some points were okay in my game. I don't know if it was over-hitting or over-waiting. I think I was waiting too much for the ball and I was playing down and I had to move better with my feet. I want to watch my match on video before I analyse it.”

“I think the only good thing about this match was that my back didn’t create any problems,” said the ousted champion as she bowed out of the tournament.

A 15-minute potty break? REALLY?!


The guy writing the "As It Happened" on the Rome website wrote a couple funny notes:
Quote:
2.20 pm: 5-4 Dulgheru as she brings Dinara into the net and sits back and watches as the world No.3 nets the first (it actually bounced first, it was that poor) then wiiides the second. The Romanian will serve for the set and the Russian has just undone all her good work. Dinara never comes to the net – Dulgheru must have told her there was cake on the cord (Dinara likes her sweet treats...)

2.38 pm: Sea change? Dinara breaks to love, aided by a ball which is called out but Safina stares so hard at the chair ump, she has to overrule the call. The eyes have it...

http://www.internazionalibnlditalia....=EN&IDNews=582
^About the last one, that must be another Safin family trait.
