Dani Into Last 32
For the third time this year, Daniela ran into Vania King, and for the third time this year, King won the first set. But for the third time a fit and motivated Daniela overcame the American in three sets, scoring a 57 63 64 second round victory.
"It was difficult conditions today, it was very hot - but I've been working on my fitness this year and I knew the longer the match went, the better it was for me," Daniela said. "Vania played really well. She's very talented and she seems to bring her best game out against me. I've had a tough draw and it has been hard work, but now I'm excited to get ready for my next match. I'll take care of my leg, rest and recover and hope to play well against Elena."
Daniela, the No.24 seed, will play No.12 seed Elena Dementieva in the third round.
