About Dinara's Bad Start

Today, I am glad to see an on-going game where Dinara is playing. However I was shocked with how bad she started the game. Although she showed she is playing hard to her opponent,Ekaterina Makarova. The first round was an advantage to her oppponent 6-7.

After the first round, Dinara was well warmed up. She was able to score and minimized faults. She won 6-3, and dominated the third round with a 6-0.

I know Dinara one of the top players. I think she was just adjusting with the opponent's style of playing. But later in that game, I can sense that she still have that drive to play up to the finals.
