Babe teach me to unworry.
And I'll teach u to unhide.
In the city where they don't need x-rays.
To see each others' insides.

Re: Why can't Agnieszka make it past the 4R of USO?

Her 4r against Makarova this year was especially weird.
She was bagelling Makarova in the first set, then loses 6 straight games to lose the set. Was leading the second set too, then loses a couple of games in a row to lose the match. She also took a strange bathroom break in the middle of the set.
It was a just a strange match all-around.

I think she has her days. I think I can tell right away if she's on or not as early as she enters the court.

Yep. One day beating Sharapova, then buying LV bags, the very next day Peer beats her
And why? I think that she usually play too many matches before US Open, however this year her match with Makarova was weird - she left court running, but maybe she had some gastro problems or it was related with her grandpa's death.

Re: Why can't Agnieszka make it past the 4R of USO?

losing to Peer is probably the best example of why she doesn't do well at the US.
she can't create enough power. placement is just not enough there. droppies aren't enough, she doesn't attack the net quite nearly as much as she should.

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.

But Peer in 2007 was a different player than she is now, so it's not relevant here.
Not to mention that she did well in US Open Series (2nd place in 2011, 3rd place in 2013), so that can be result of being tired or something as she plays way too many events before it. In 2011 she seems to be on fire, but she drew in the 2nd round Kerber, who has just started her skyrocket climb in the rankings.

Poor you sweetie, must've been really surprised when she made it past 4th RD in Miami last year, we all know what happened at the latest stage of that tournament that someone has yet to add it to the resume....

She probably should have done it in 2007 tbh after beating Maria...but seeing as Shahar played very well that day...
