Clip of the Week: Back to the Hate Column

Last week I really tried to like Daniela Hantuchova.

But after pulling the choke job of the fall (thus far), I just have to move her back to the Hate Column.

Up 6-3, 3-0, Hantuchova managed to let Ana Ivanovic back into the finals at Luxembourg and ended up losing the match 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.

Sure, you have to give Ivanovic a lot of props for what she did, but Hantuchova seems to get tight in these sort of situations and tense up. In watching the highlights, I feel like she isn't swinging through the ball the way she should. Her strokes are abbreviated and look flat to me.

Plus, she may have remembered that she was in Luxembourg, not Indian Wells, and realized that it's against Hantuchova International Law for her to win a title anywhere other than the Pacific Life.
