Radwanska breezes past Duan 6-3 6-2

Aga showed us why she is No.3 in the world tonight. Only 7 UE tonight for her

Sydney QF: (2) Radwanska Prunes Duan 6-3 6-2

Aga pruned BFCD without even facing any MPs, incredible feat

Aga's groundstrokes are in ruins at the moment, has to be said. She's just not getting enough depth consistently.

Most games in the first set had BPs but Aga played them much better and that decided the first set. By the second Aga was pushing () better and Duan sprayed more and more errors. Strycova awaits and I hope the rivalry continues to be so one sided.

Duan has some real weapons just making Aga float balls, but can't put them together long enough to finish the point
Aga's second serve getting crushed especially first set

Some glimpses of vintage Aga could be seen today. She also mentioned in an interview Bara played an unbelievable tennis against Caro.

But groundstrokes are weak as fuck at this moment.

Aga winning means her chances of winning Australian Open decrease dramatically. Hasn't she learned yet?!

Re: Sydney QF: (2) Radwanska Prunes Duan 6-3 6-2

I was actually quite pleased with Aga today. Yeah, there was very little in the way of flashy, spectacular play from her but against Duan she did what she needed to. There were far fewer errors from Aga today than any of the matches I have seen from her this year and that is important. Yeah, nothing terribly impressive from Aga today but she was solid and that solidity is what has been lacking in her play this year. Against a player like Barbora, Aga will have a lot more opportunities to show off her skills. Of course Barbora is playing great as well and is a very skilled player herself so I expect that to be a good match.

As for Duan, the less said the better. I thought Duan played really well last week in China against Aga and she surprised me a lot there. Most significantly, for the first time, she didn't look like a complete joke in the forecourt and actually looked comfortable midcourt. She finished points well at the net, handled lobs and showed some good reflexes. Previous matches I had seen of Duan she has always been a disaster midcourt.

But today, very little of the improvements Duan showed last week were on display. Today, Duan was just a very mediocre hard hitting error machine, and Aga played her accordingly.

Yeah, if Aga can play at anything like her standard level she really should win this title. Still, that "if" is not a formality.

La Professora schools them all. That's why she's top 10 player for years
