Aga Radwanska withdraws from Antwerp

Na Li has become the 9th seed and has taken her place in the draw. Don't know the reason.

Re: Aga Radwanska withdraws from Antwerp

Understandable decision.

Though skipping Pattaya to play Antwerp at first place sounds more right to me despite WC for Ula.

Re: Aga Radwanska withdraws from Antwerp

i like aga, but im happy about this because she was seeded to met anna chakvetadze in the qtrs. i'd rather anna played li na than aga as shes on a bit of a hot streak right now.

Re: Aga Radwanska withdraws from Antwerp

Oh gee, there's a shock - NOT! The girl has been from Australia to Hungary and then back top Thailand, and is in the final there, then she was going to go play Antwerp? Yeah right!

Re: Aga Radwanska withdraws from Antwerp

She would have probably lost before the QFs coz she'd be dead tired anyway.

Re: Aga Radwanska withdraws from Antwerp

Fair enough. Although I must say the thought of a Radwanska v Chakvetadze match is very intriguing but I guess that will have to wait. (Szavay v Chakvetadze will be pretty good too for that matter.)

Overall I'd say this is a pretty good decision. A rested Aga will do better in Doha and Dubai. And as others have said there is good chance Aga would have been too tired to perform at a high level at Antwerp anyway, so that Radwanska v Chakvetadze match actually might have been a huge anti-climax anyway, if indeed it happened at all.

Re: Aga Radwanska withdraws from Antwerp

Ridiculous scheduling. Players should not be allowed to just pull out because they have the worst scheduling ever. If she's not injured, she should be expected to play.

That is not to say that I don't understand why she is pulling out. But I mean that the WTA should combat this type of tournament planning.
