Re: Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

Actually I forgot the fact she played also Shenzen before AO, but probably even if Na's matches were longer, they weren't exhausting as Radwanska's ones always defending and playing long points?

I wouldn't think that is the same as looking for an excuse.
First, Her basic game was simply outplayed today, I didnt see anything to suggest she wasnt at her physical peak. But sadly I'm not stopwatching how fast she runs during her matches, so if you have actual numbers dont hold it back.

Second, she has a gamestyle (retrieving) that heavily depends on her physic & endurance. She has to be prepared to not have physical problems or whole purpose of her game is pointless.

Third, if overplaying was her problem (which i already pointed out in Sydney SF WWW thread), well, learn from it.

Re: Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

To me she was weak mentally, not physically. She just didn't have the guts today.. She started being outplayed and gave up....
Plus, lots of bad decisions - why come to the net completely unprepared? Suicidal!

Re: Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

Her serve was sadly crap today, but other than that she simply didn't want to go for her shots, nothing wrong physically.

good point - and I kinda wondered about her playing in and winning 2 tourneys leading up to the AO-maybe a littl tired - she probably should have skipped one.

U also forgot she played an exhibition event vs. Victoria Azarenka in Thailand before Shenzhen. And she is over 30.

Re: Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

I thought she looked maybe half a step slow today. Playing two Australian Open tune-ups (and winning both) probably had something to do with that.

Re: Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

Na deserves full marks for her exellent play today and Aga just looked 'lost' and confused as to how to regroup, I just started watching at 5-4 with Aga leading but it was all downhill from that point on...she did have a break to start the 2nd set 2-0 but that quickly evaporated but Na just had more winners especially her backhand and even though she wobbled a bit on her last service game did manage to come through...Coach Rodiques is giving her more confidence bottom line.

Re: Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

But what I don't understand is why people are suggesting her play today is any worse than it has been all year I mean, despite the hype, the fact is her results at the 2 warm-up tournaments weren't particularly impressive. I mean, I know I've been parrotting this for weeks, but seriously, having very tight matches against Hampton and Vinci hardly augur well, and again, if you look at the stats for the Cibulkova match, the fact even Radwanska managed to hit more unforced errors than winners in that match (8 to 7) hardly indicated she was in spectacular form.

I mean, I bet if you even compared the stats for today's match with the Sydney match against Li herself, Radwanska's stats would be very similar in the two matches -- it's just Na's were much better today than in Sydney.

They have different games, Aga's game requires more work.
