Agnieszka Radwanska is the most talented player of her generation!

I really want Agnieszka Radwanska to step up to the plate and become a champion. Most of the female tennis players are just brainless ball bashing idiots they hit the ball hard with no thought or context.

I know the press like Victoria Azarenka and Caroline Wozniacki but I am more impressed with Radwanska's game. Agnieszka's game is more complete she is so smart uses angles, slice, lobs, drop shots and volleys very well. I just wish Agniezszka would get a better serve. I am kind of disappointed in her because she hasn't played great tennis for a while. I feel if Agniezska can get some confidence she can definitely become a champion. People seem to think it is all about power but I feel that skill is also important.

A talented player isn't allowed to lose against Pushniacki, sorry.

Re: Agnieszka Radwanska is the most talented player of her generation!

Radwanska has a nice game but even with her "skills" it's not enough as it's easy to overpower her. A serve would help her to be become a real top 10 player and not someone that's always between #15 and #8..

She could be good with a massive weapon but she's basically a Camille Pin hitting some lobs and dropshots.

You don't need to talented to beat Wozniacki, just hit hard between the lines.

Re: Agnieszka Radwanska is the most talented player of her generation!

i agree!!
or at least i feel that she is capable of playing much better than she has as of late. her problem for me in recent months is the lack of development; she always is consistent, anticipates well, and has the feel, but that extra improvement is still to be seen.
i hope she realizes this soon and makes some beneficial changes to her game, as she really is quite a talent.

Her volleys are sad and brittle... nice try though

Re: Agnieszka Radwanska is the most talented player of her generation!

She plays well if you let her play well. She has great hands and can do nice things with the ball - if you give her time to set up her shots and control the court. But if you don't give her that time and throw a bit of power her way, she's got no answers - while she's a decent mover, her defense is nowhere near strong enough to beat the Williamses and Belgians by getting everything back in the way the likes of Jankovic can. And I mean, she was actually overpowered by Wozniacki at IW this year... now I love Wozniacki and think she's far better than many people on here give her credit for (she's a fantastic counter-puncher), but still, if she's besting you in the power stakes then you've got problems

I think she's pretty much hit a brick wall I'm afraid - I think she might be able to hang around at low top 10/top 20 level for a good few years, but I'd be surprised if she ever does better than she's doing now.

Problem being, Radwanska has brainless skill.

She can do a lot of different things with the ball, but too often, she doesn't know WHAT to do. She's like a chess player who thinks only about the next move, not the next seven or eight. She's Patty Schnyder, not Martina Hingis. Meaning she's skilled, and will win some tournaments, but she's just not smart enough to overcome her physical shortcomings. Which is no sin. Steven Hawking would be the smartest player on the men's tour, but he wouldn't win any matches.

My favorite was the Aga/Caro match at IW where both of them hit 2x harder than they usually do against other opponents

Re: Agnieszka Radwanska is the most talented player of her generation!

I like her game and her (she's feisty and assertive), but her serve stinks to high heaven. It is so pitty-pat. She won't get much higher without improving that serve. Sure, she can ace you, as she has good placement, but sometimes her serve is nothing more than spinning it in. She's also the queen of the bagel against lower-ranked opponents. That said, I can't see her getting much higher the 7 or 8. I don't even know her ranking at the moment.

I don't think so. Vika is much more talented than her, there H2H even proves it.
