Re: AO R4: Radwanska def. Ivanovic 62 64

I love it, when Ana aimlessly hits forehands below net level with a downward trajectory. What does she think will happen?

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Re: AO R4: Radwanska def. Ivanovic 62 64

There were plenty of nice points in this match from both players, but Ivanovic gave away too much with loose forehands. She overhit too many of her returns but had some looks at making the match closer. Ana was decent at net and it was nice to see her hit some backhand winners for a change Radwanska played pretty well and I enjoy seeing the variety in her game, but in numerous rallies she relied a bit too much on Ivanovic's loose errors. She won't have that luxury if she makes it to the SF.

It's a myth created by JJ fans to help them get over their h2h.
But feel free to believe it if makes you feel better.
That Madrid match was an exception, not the rule.

Like I said, the Madrid match and the RG 08 one are both counterexamples.
I suppose you only count the examples that support your theory.
Also, wasn't the common consensus on this board, among JJ's fans, that she (JJ) was playing better than in a long, long time, and that there is now a hope on the horizon?

I expected this result, which is a shame cos it means that I don't expect Ana to be a contender at the Slams anymore

Re: AO R4: Radwanska def. Ivanovic 62 64

This match clearly shows that Ana reacts instead of coming up with a strategy. The fact that she kept getting aced on the deuce side out wide is beyond me. Why didn't she just move over and take that serve away from Aga? Ana is toned, fit and can move well but all of that means nothing if her brain is not going to properly guide the ship. Nigel I want to see more improvement and fast.

If someone had told me in 2008 that Radwanska would own JJ and Ana I would have laughed histerically.

You need serious talent to get aced 7 times with that enormous wingspan. Congrats, Anci.

Ana's forehand was off. If she doesn't have that, what does she have?

Is she afraid of Aga after Sydney and decided to comeback to China already to play 25K?
