Re: Wuhan R1: Radwanska d. Rybarikova 6-4 7-5
Two of my favourite players, regularly TF posters know that already. I've seen these two play some great, really entertaining matches in the past. But despite some lovely points here and there this wasn't one of them.
Aga is nowhere near her best and she was there for the taking but Magda, after a very promising start, lost all belief and confidence in her game and she was very poor during the midsection of this match. She picked it up a bit towards the end but even so, this was the poorest I've seem Magda play in quite a while.
That is four sets in a row now that Magda has lost by getting tight as the set reached it's later stages.
As for Aga, if this win is a sign of a resurgence in her results and an indication that she is returning to the form that made her a top 10 player for a decade I would be very pleased. But somehow, I doubt it. Prove me wrong Aga, please.
