Gamesmanship?

When Radwanska kept moving back and forth on Maria's second serve? Mary Carillo said very frankly that it was.

Re: Gamesmanship?

If you don't like Radwanska it's gamesmanship, if you do like her it's smart tactics. But it really doesn't matter. You do what you have to in order to win.

Re: Gamesmanship?

It wasn't gamesmanship. Plenty of players move around like that before the serve. I've seen Maria and Ana both do it. Sharapova should have realized that Aga was moving backwards once she actually served not to mention her returns were hardly overpowering.

Re: Gamesmanship?

You have to take what Mary Carillo says, put it in a box, burn the box, then dump the ashes on her head.

Re: Gamesmanship?

NO.

It's competition. Anything to get an edge on your opponent and keep it. Radwanska wasn't breaking any rules.

If there is any nonsense it's the umpire's job to step on it.

Re: Gamesmanship?

Iv seen lots of players do it, and Sharapova did it like mad in the final few rounds of Wimbledon 2004, particularly against Davenport.

Grassonkova.

Re: Gamesmanship?

Doesn't matter. In the words of Lindsay, Radwanska is in the next round and Maria is in the hotel room packing.

Re: Gamesmanship?

Of course not, it was very smart tactics from Aga. Great to see another player who uses her brain on the court.

Sharapova / Bartoli / Azarenka / Rezaď
Cornet / Karatantcheva / Kirilenko
Safina / Dulko / Görges / Shvedova
Fedak / Czink / Harkleroad / Gallovits
Kleybanova / A.Bondarenko / Watson

Re: Gamesmanship?

All players do it. Sharapova does it all the time. She was doing it in her match doday; it just didn't work out for her.

*Venus*Serena*Kuznetsova*Schiavone*Taylor*Bartoli* *A.Bondarenko*Zheng*Duval*Safarova*Kirilenko*

*Federer*Nadal*Djokovic*Tsonga*Murray*Monfils*Gulb is*Young*Wawrinka*Mirnyi*

This is an actual definition of gamesmanship!
