Re: Bold Prediction: Aga Will Only Lose to Vika in 2012

Speaking as someone who likes Radwanska a lot, that won't happen. Aga is quite simply not as good a player on clay as she is on hard or grass. She is much improved, and I expect her to do substantial better this claycourt season than last year but she will certainly have her share of losses during this part of the year. A year is a long time in tennis, and during the course of a full year form can rise and fall and then rise again. Only to fall again afterwards.

Radwanska is on course to have a very good year. A year end top 5 is very likely. Semi finals or better in Grand Slams certainly look a realistic possibility. There is no reason why she shouldn't win more titles either. But over the course of a full tennis season there will inevitably be disappointing losses too.

If Marion didn't have that injury the other day...

And there's dust in my eyes, that blinds my sight
And silence that speaks so much louder that words,
Of promises broken

Re: Bold Prediction: Aga Will Only Lose to Vika in 2012

Short answer: not gonna happen.
Long answer: definitely not gonna happen. It would mean at least consistently getting to semifinals and finals, and while she might be tough and a great player, she's bound to lose early in some tournaments, especially those back to back in busier periods. Just look at Azarenka - her loss to Bartoli appears to be random as Azarenka is the better player (in terms of achievements and H2H), but she was to burnt out physically and mentally to go on in that match.

Re: Bold Prediction: Aga Will Only Lose to Vika in 2012

Stosur would destroy her anytime

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Bold Prediction: Aga Will Only Lose to Vika in 2012

This would have been a bold prediction had it been made at the beginning of the year. As it is, now that Aga has won a tournament where Vika had been eliminated in the QF; it is simply an informative factoid noting that Aga so far this year has not lost to anyone except Vika.

Re: Bold Prediction: Aga Will Only Lose to Vika in 2012

No. Just as it was predicted that Azarenka would lose in Miami because it was a back to back mandatory, there is no way she gets through the Rome, Madrid, French Open stretch winning and only losing to Azarenka.

I just want Aga to schedule properly, the fact that she is in the Charleston draw scares me.

Re: Bold Prediction: Aga Will Only Lose to Vika in 2012

I'm very impressed by huge improvements of Aga Radwanska or Vika Azarenka in last about half of year, but any of this two is still not "player to beat" on red clay surface.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Looking forward to Caro-Aga matches!!! The only match in which I will be a fan of Wozniacki

Radwanska-Azarenka-Wozniacki: the new trifecta?
