That's how I see it. Her style of play involves a lot of running and, unlike many other players, she doesn't have power shots to fall back on. I also think that she gets down on herself because she's usually disappointed with her Wimby results.

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

I truly hate to agree with Aga's antagonists on this forum: Aga is simply not good enough.
She is an opportunistic player. She doesn't have power to fall back on when things don't go her way, she requires lots of running, she doesn't get anything for free, everything must hard fought, and things really have to line up for her to go deep in a tournament.
Look at the two Wimbys: in both cases it was exactly like that: all of a sudden the paths were cleared and she took advantage. The same was in Miami. Sugarpova was her only top tier opponent she ever beat in a top tournament.

I wish Pova's and Enka's fans were wrong in their assessments of Aga's and now I could laugh into their faces, but unfortunately I cannot do it.

I hope she will be another Marion and one day at a major the skies will open and she will grab the day. That actually happened already this year and she didn't take it, but like with seeking Holy Grail: the chance may happen again.

- surface doesnt suit her.
- she is physically & mentally spent at this time of the season grinding trough the previous 8 months.
- she isnt good enough.

First statement: Incorrect, the girl has proven she can play fine on U.S Hardcourts.

Second Statement: Yeah, it's possible. But then why she tries to peak in the Asian swing right after?

Third Statement: Ding. Ding. Ding. We have a winner.

15 Sharapova (half a year)
** ************************
21 Radwanska
23 Kvitova
22 Errani
20 Jannkovic
23 Kerber
23 Wozniacki
24 Halep
22 Stephens


See the pattern. The currently dominant players play fewer tournaments. But they are arguably at their best for them.

Maybe she needs to cut back, play the mandatories, the slams, and an OZ tune-up.

1) did she?

2) does she actually try or just the wrong conclusion from facing depleted fields?

3) of course, she has her own limits. But that still wont explain losing to the likes of Errani.
