Radwanska on Serena's #1 ranking.

Agnieszka Radwanska on what it would take to "knock Serena off her perch"...
"Well, she has a lot of points now and it's going to be really hard to reach her the next few months. She's playing really great tennis on every surface, and she's really on fire. So I think it's about her. When she's playing her best tennis, it doesn't matter what you do, you're going to lose anyway."

We all know it's true but should she really say it publicly?

Re: Radwanska on Serena's #1 ranking.

A lot of players have said similar things. After Errani's loss to Serena at the FO semifinals, she said something to the extent of the only way to beat Serena is to have a good day and hope she has a bad day.

Re: Radwanska on Serena's #1 ranking.

That's why she's a weak bitch like Errani.
It doesn't matter what you think privately, you should never admit you're helpless against your opponent.
If you think nothing you do is going to help, then you have no incentive to do anything.
GSM even faster without letting your opponent even have the chance to come out of the zone.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Probably not, statements like this affect women's tennis marketability, which is the only thing that really matters.

Re: Radwanska on Serena's #1 ranking.

Close please. Other top 5 player made comment about Serena Williams. Threads like that are not allowed on TF.

- 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.

Ok Goldenlox.

Anyway, do you have anything to back this up? Players were saying the same about Federer before Nadal came along.

(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.

Re: Radwanska on Serena's #1 ranking.

If she said anything more "positive" people would call her a deluded pusher - can't really win either way?

Ultimately her assessment is completely honest, and I think good on her for saying it truthfully. It isn't like Aga walks on court with a defeated mentality against Serena - she plays the sane way against her... sticks in there, makes her play every ball and hopes that Serena doesn't play at top form, knowing she can outsteady a below-par Serena if she is very solid herself. I think it would only be a bad thing for her to be saying if she genuinely seemed defeated on court before the match was played... as long as she retains perspective without developing a sort of learned helplessness response then it's not harming her to put things in an honest way.

This is basically the biggest tennis story of the year in the press and we can't talk about it

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

Radwanska has officially joined the good side in the war between The Good vs Evil.

dead @ posts like such above from the ones that supposedly "don't care" yet care enough to enter a certain thread and actually type bs down.
pressed

As for what Aga said, i see no lies, unlike some she actually makes a point about Serena's game instead of her private life.
