I always thought she had a chance to win in Paris for some reason, but if I'm not mistaken clay is her worst surface right? so yeah, who knows.

Unless she gets some clay specialist a la Kuzzie in the first rounds she can be a good contender.
She says she doesn't like to play on clay so much because she cannot rely on the power of her opponents as much as she can on hard/grass surface. She must add her own power which caused usually back problems during clay season.

Re: Chris Evert: Agnieszka Radwanska will be a serious contender for French Open

Clay is her worst surface by far.. Aga doesn't use spin and doesn't have a big forehand
But i remember she said Wozniacky was a clear favorite of the RG-2011 Does Evert follow tennis or not ?

Re: Chris Evert: Agnieszka Radwanska will be a serious contender for French Open

i dont see why her clay game is much diferent than her regular game, apart a few extra dropshots. its just that everybody sucks so badly on it in the current top10 apart errani whom has her problems.

true, time for preparing and slower balls is grear for most of the tour, but almost no one transitions much anyway, most players dont slide into shots, and chipping is gone.

i expect another first time random SF, at least.

but in anycase her year has been great thus far without rising her game, so the rest of the tour will have difficulties outdoing her, at least prior 4th round. the draw will determine her progress there onwards.

chris' timing in this case is laughable, considering this clay season will be huge for all of the big three, with errani and stosur with alot to prove.

kerber has kinda lost plot and needs time out.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Always so insightful, we can tell Chris really follows WTA lately

ITF: “She is the sole author of her own misfortune.”

I think exactly the same. If i was her (or Wozniacki) i would train a lot on clay, maybe is their worst surface, but it's their best chance of winning a GS. Clay was Miskina worst surface too, and she won it.
Aga has a lot of qualities that can make her a good clay courter, and without a real clay queen, she has her chances if she is able to up her game on clay

as much as i hate to admit it she's probably a contender for all of them but at the same time her chances at roland garros are the lowest.
