Daniela Hantuchova Looks To Get the Ultimate Revenge on Maria Sharapova

2011 has really turned out to be the year of cold blooded revenge for Daniela Hantuchova. First she got back at Karolina at Roland Garros for, well, being Karolina… then got her own back on Ivanovic in Birmingham for their infamous squeakgate 2008 Australian Open semifinal, and she immediately followed that up by picking off Venus Williams at Eastbourne for the first time in her career after ten straight losses, proving that nobody beats Daniela Hantuchova eleven times in a row.

Tomorrow she will be up against yet another old nemesis. However, this one is the biggest of them all. Unlike Wozniacki whose pure presence is enough to make anyone angry, unlike Ana who may or may not have purposely squeaked, and unlike Vinas who was just better than her, this is personal.

It all went down at Indian Wells in 2008. Ahead of their match, this is what Hantuchova had to say;

“It’s going to be an exciting match. She’s playing obviously in great form, so it will be a good test for me. I feel like I own this place.”

Maria appeared to take offence with that final line, and she came out the next day, brushed Hantuchova aside in straight sets and then rubbed it in like salt to a wound by famously shouting out “THIS IS MAIIII HOME!” both before and after the handshake.


So hide yer kids, hide yer wife and bring a video camera. There could be some more fireworks in this one.

    This match will be dramatic tomorrow, but I’m sure Maria wants even more revenge against Serena(almost 7 years!!) and she will refuse to lose to Dani.(at least I expect that, don’t disappoint me Masha!)

    OMG, I can’t believe Maria said that. Hilarious.

    More importantly, was that a nip slip at 4:55 in the video? xD
