Ok, I won't make this kind of report the way Swimntennis did, but I can report about some of them that I've watched
Aga vs Harkload IW R16:
So finally I've watched that one. I remmember looking at the scoreboard that day, along with more Aga fans, we were shocked to see the way Aga struggled and almost lost to a lower ranked player, even though Ashley was in great shape.
That match was very very good! From both players, they gave it all.
They both played really well at the net from what I saw, they attacked great, defended gread, really nice all around game.
If it matters, I can say that Harkload served DF's at SP and MP to Aga, but apart from that, Aga's comeback from 2:4 to 6:4 in the 3rd, wasn't at all due to a choke, Aga played very very well in thos games, got many difficult balls back in to play, sent them really well when her opponent was at the net for example.
Great match, I enjoyed it
Sttutgart 2007, vs Kuznetsova.
I still have to watch this match again, but it was a super match! (The one that made me really became a fan), great fighting spirit from Aga, great play from both.
I remmember in the begging of the 2nd set Aga faced triple break points (0-40) but saved them all with great moves! especially with wrong footing Kuzzy with the inside out FH.
Aga vs Razzano USO 2007, 2nd round
As far as I remmeber, Razzano had some stupid UE's, but overall great match from Aga. I remmember especially one point (I think in the 2nd set) that Razzano hit great approach shot to Aga's BH, but somehow Aga managed to pass her down the line. The shocked look on Razzano's face after that, said it all.
Berlin 2008, R16, vs Serena
Definitelly not a match that as a Aga fan I'd like to watch again. Serena just outplayed her, blew her off the court..She was just too good that day, nothing Aga could do
*Now I'll report about few matches that aren't in the video's thread.
Doha 2008, vs Cibulkova
Damn what a match that was! It has began a bit slow, some errors and nice points from both, at the end, Aga came back in the 3rd from a break down to win 6:4 in the 3rd, with great points.
The things I remmember the mot from that match are 2 things:
1. That point at 2:3 in the 3rd, deuce, Aga hit a really good touch, Cibulkova reched and hit it back, Aga sent a lob, Cibulkova somehow hit some drive volley with her BH, but then, leaning backwoards, Aga hit another drop shot! Which was just glorius, everyone wer shocked, Cibulkova, the commentors, me..
2. Aga used too much drop shots in that match, won only 50% of the times using them, if not less.
As we know, Cibulkova, is like a wall, doesn't miss, reacing every ball, and that week, in Doha she played extremly well.
Aga hit too many dropshots, especially to her FH side ad got punished time after time. That was a big tactic mistake from her.
Plus, I have to mention Aga used her FH great at times, and when she was defensive she played ver well, hititing many balls back, making Cibulkova hitting more than one smash..
*Vs Cornet, RG 2008, 3rd round.
Aga started slow.. That was awful, and fell to 1:4, with 2 breaks behind. Alize was hitting many winners with her BH DTL and the french crowd behind her. But then, from no where, Aga steped it up, remmmeber the things she could do, and started playing very very well, she took 5 games in a row with great tennis, long rallies, really good match
RG 2008, 4th round, Vs Jankovic
One of the weirdest matches of her I think.
Aga lost the 1st set 6:3, the match started pretty evenly if I recall right, but then, from the end of the first set, until 1:5 in the 2nd, she played just awful. Missing many many balls, during rallies and also the simple ones, not kind of balls you'd see her missing any other time. She was really off and it looked like she just wanted to go off the court. But then, also thanks to Jankovic, but also with great fighting spirit, which is not easy to find at 3:6 1:5 down she played really good and steady tennis, to have a big comeback to 6 all and force a TB. But at the TB, she was all the sudden pretty off again, and some stupid UE's she had, gave Jankovic the match (Including a long BH DTL at MP)
But as for the mental side, it was good for Aga imo. Just keep fighting, no matter what, she could have taken that 2nd set if she'd stayed a bit more concentrated.
Wimbledon 2008, R16, Against Kuznetsova.
the 1st set was really good from both, Aga broke to 5:3 but was broken back to 5:4 with some good points from Kuzzy, but then, Aga broke again to win the set with a lovely BH DTL winner.
The second set was awful, just awful, Aga wasn't there, and Kuznetsova was hitting winners all over the place.
In the 3rd set, Aga fell down a break, 1-4, but the games were much more tighter, and Kuznetsova was playing really well, Aga lookd as if she was about to fade away again. But then, she put some pressure on Kuznetsova again, played really good points, kept the pressure, and got the breakback, from Kuzzy's UE (Pretty stupid one TBH). Aga stayed calm, did her job and mostly because of that she pulled the win.
