Too bad she's yet to win a set against Aga since may 2009.

Um, no, she doesn't. She played like crap in Madrid, and she played right within her standards in RG 08, not to analyze any further.
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.

This match had some very enjoyable rallies. Aga showing once again that if you're not 100% consistent against her, you shouldn't even bother.

Ivanovic played decently but was nowhere near Aga, if Ana fans needed any more proof that she will never be a top player again there it is.

Not for Ana. Radwanska is calm, patient and smart which is a deadly combination for a player like Ana.

The only top players Ana has a chance of beating are the wildly inconsistent ones, like Kvitova who can lose to anyone anyway.

Some people never learn. Someone said several days ago Cibulkova is a threat to everybody except the top 3, when Aga had just double bageled her and has H2H 4-0, whereas Pome gave pretty comprehensive beatdowns to both Sharapova and Azarenka in the past.

I actually feel Ana was outplaying Aga in rallies in the second set after being 0-2 down, luckily Aga could rely on her serve in the big moments.

Talking about Radwanska serve stats which include 6 aces in one single set, You all must to know that she is not first "big server" which Ana make to look like WTA Ivo Karlovic without reason when have bad day.
k, boy. Spot on analysis

Her RG08 form was a one-off blip and her current form is her real standard

Well...I hate to say this but it was NID.

Aga would always be too solid for Ivanovic.

Wanted to watch this, but on to early in the morning in the UK.

Looking at the stats it was a good accomplished performance from Aga, but Ivanovic seemed like she was a mess, played so well against Jankovic then performs like that, just not good enough.

May well be, but her game level in the match with JJ was within the form of that RG; she didn't raise her game just because she is possessed with hate for JJ or something, as the theory goes.

Also, is the theory that the reason Ana beat JJ and lost today - that JJ's and Aga's level was the same and it was only Ana's level that made the difference?

Like, really?
