BRATISLAVA. “Wrestling with Wozniacki was Danielin the best for half a year of our co-operation,” coach Matej Lipták said on the winning Hantuchova match in the 3rd round of Roland Garros. The couple returned to Slovakia on Monday.
The Slovak tennis player won the world unit, allowing Denmark to lose only four gems. “In the next round, Daniel came across an entirely different style. Russia’s Kuznec was quick, aggressive, making a few mistakes. She was doing too well. In such a form it is among the candidates for the title. “Hantuchova beat Kuznecovova 7: 6, 3: 6, 2: 6. She is mentally resilient
Hantuchova (29th in WTA) in Paris defeated the last eight-finals, keeping her in the top 30 in the rankings.In the clay season, the tournament had 12 victories – 6 defeats.
“We can be happy with the clay part of the year,” the coach said. “In Strasbourg she was well prepared for Roland Garros, she got used to new balls. In Paris, she played well, and in that meeting with Wozniacka she was totally sad. “
According to Lipták, Hantuchova has improved the psychological resistance during their collaboration. “He is more confident, relaxed, well focused on the game,” he said, looking positively. “With the players of the first tens, she played on clay and I believe that in a short time the results will prevail over her side.I am convinced that Paris is just a precursor to what’s coming. “London 2012 is the motivation
Hantuch was in 5th place in January 2003 and is always holding the wider world’s top ten for a year of professional career.
“Training effort can be an example for the young generation, its main motivation is the London Olympics 2012,” said Lipták.
The famous Wimbledon on London’s grass is also the closest goal for Slovakian tennis player. He will play at the Birmingham and Eastbourne tournaments. The clay results are for Hantuch’s encouragement, the grass is more suited to her fast-paced game.From Wimbledon, Wimbledon defends the second round, and with good bonuses it could attribute points and progress in WTA retirement.
“Daniela, according to her form, belongs to the first twenty world rankings, but she has to confirm the results on the court,” said Lipták. “Roland Garros also shows that women’s tennis is not a major favorite in the absence of Williams. Chances open for a wider range of players – including Daniel. “
