Bastad 1R : [8]Benesova def. Radwanska 3-6 6-2 6-2

Ula played smart tennis in the first set, letting Iveta self-destruct.

In the last two sets, Benesova got her game together and even some excellent defense by the youngest Radwanska wasn't good enough.

Didn't know only 5K people lived there.

Only caught the last set and U. Radwanska just wasn't at the races, far too many cheap points given away. Had a break point at 4-2 down that could have gotten her back in it but blew it. Fair play by Benesova though after her complete no-show again Jankovic at Wimbledon.

Marion Bartoli // Sam Stosur // Andrea Petkovic // Maria Jose

Vika Azarenka // Shahar Peer // Virginie Razzano // Caro Wozniacki// Flavia Pennetta

Elena Baltacha // Katie O'Brien // Anne Keothavong // Sarah Borwell // Melanie South // Naomi Cavaday

Why terrible? I remember that you guys wrote clay was Urszula's worst surface after she got destroyed by Hantuchova in Warszawa. Clay is also Benešová's best one plus she is about 40 places higher in the rankings.

Re: Bastad 1R : [8]Benesova def. Radwanska 3-6 6-2 6-2

Did anyone seriously think Ula was going to beat Iveta here, on clay? Ula has won only 2 matches on clay in the last 2 years and one of those was to Marie-Eve Pelletier. In contrast, Iveta has rarely lost a match on clay to a player ranked outside the top 20 in the last year or so. Only surprise was Iveta started the match very slowly and even that wasn't much of a surprise really.

I don't understand the Ula Radwanska hype. Her strokes are pretty average and her attitude is extremely poor. Why are people expecting so much from her? Not attacking here, just a general question.
