Talking Jim Courier "Radwanska is bush league"

Courier says in pre-match for nite session that Aggies tactics of moving in then back before Maria's serve is bush league. He sites as an example of chag vs Lendl at French Open one year and Lendl complained to the refs. He says that it is an unwritten rule in the locker room that this tactic is off limits. I didn't see anthing wrong with her tactics. Also Maria didn't complain and in her interview says that she dosen't pay attention to what she was doing.

He works with the biggest fucking tool who ever lived, John McEnroe. Call him out on his antics.
Aga did what Venus does, stand in close to return serve.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

Re: Jim Courier "Radwanska is bush league"

Is he just upset that Sharapova lost? I'm finding his comments kind of bizarre.

Well his stance was kinda right IMO, that's just something you stop doing on the pro circuit.

Re: Jim Courier "Radwanska is bush league"

Courier is old school. It is bush league, but hey it's a new era, and ewww I hate agreeing with Tracy Austin. Radswanka should have tried and returned a serve from there, then really get in Maria's head.

Agassi did it ALL the god damn time.

I often agree with Courier, but he's just wrong on this one.

Re: Jim Courier "Radwanska is bush league"

Changing a racket when your opponent is serving for the match point is also bush league. Maria got back what she did numerous times in the past.

Re: Jim Courier "Radwanska is bush league"

Who cares about Courier? Even if Aga serve isnt very powerful, her wise game is dangerous especially to slow players, like Maria..

I'm alaways right, even when Im wrong...

Agassi did it for real, to punish 2nd serves.
I don't mind Radanswka doing what she did, btw.

Agreed. Not fun to watch as a fan, irritating as hell for the opponent but perfectly within her rights to do so.

~Agnieszka Radwanska~

'I had plenty of boyfriends and lots of affairs, but they got furious when I made my name. People would ring up and ask me out. I'd say: "But I'm writing." 'And they'd say: "I see. You're too grand for us now." 'And I'd say: "Actually, I've always been too grand for you."

Re: Jim Courier "Radwanska is bush league"

His stance is perfectly right. It's a very rude thing to do on court, one of the worst. Very junior, very immature and in this case very effective. Quite pathetic really. I'm disappointed so many people on here seem to think it's a great thing to have done.

Maria's quote in her press conference was nice "I'll be interested to see if she tries it the next time we play".

I was practicing with Venus in Florida, and she was just killing me. I'm kind of glad she didn't make it, for my sake (laughter). You can't sleep on her because she's playing unbelievable. I got to take my chance now while she's out because when she's coming back, she's really playing like she's playing with no fear and she's practicing really hard. Yeah, she's playing unbelievable. > Serena Williams AO '07

Re: Jim Courier "Radwanska is bush league"

Is it more irritating that screaming like a chicken being stangled during each and every point, even drop shots? Is it more irritating than always having to smooth away nonexistent strands of hair before each and every point dictating the tempo?

Bartoli does it, Venus does it and sharapova herself has done it (like when she played Serena in Miami and other matches). Aga was more blatant but if we are gonna call this gamesmanship - call it all out!
