Aga Radwańska on the Russian players

http://argwus.blogspot.com/2008/12/a...-russians.html

"Some Russians are specific. Sharapova is inaccessible. She's always keeping herself out of the way. She's friends with noone. Chakvetadze is very similar. Kuznetsova, on the other hand, is great! She's funny and always the life and soul of the party. Dementieva is also very likeable. She's like a normal girl from the neighbourhood"
- Agnieszka Radwańska sharing her opinions on the dominant Russians on the WTA Tour.

"Do you want to get broken first, or do you want me to hold?"
- Martina Hingis to Lindsay Davenport, after winning the coin toss.

Re: Aga Radwańska on the Russian players

why is it that every interview of every player has a question about Russian players? I mean, why not to ask what some think of Kazahstan players? Or American players? It is getting to a point of being boooooooring

Because Russia is the leading nation of WTA perhaps?

Re: Aga Radwańska on the Russian players

Re: Aga Radwańska on the Russian players

Radwanska always speaks her mind!

She must be right
But I know Anna C has several good friends on Tour including Vesnina, Shahar Peer and Azarenka

Anastasia Myskina


Radwanska - S. Williams - V. Williams - Kerber

OTOH 50% of top12 has RUS next to their names.
Anyway, she's just about right for me. At least I had similar similar feelings about at least Lena & Sveta based on personal experience. And she didn't exactly say her opinion on Russian players in general, but on 4 different players. Nothing wrong with that.

Who was in the top echelon of WTA from Russia then? I'm guessing only AnnaK (as I hadn't been following tennis thus far ago). You've answered your won question.

I meant to give an opinion of, say, American players... There were plenty of them around

Aga was asked about players in general, but she only said something about the Russians. I think it's maybe good that she didn't mention Jankovic this time, cause otherwise she would be slaughtered by JJ's fans...

Re: Aga Radwańska on the Russian players

That caricature she's drawn last fall was more than enough to express her opinion...
