U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows - 2009

Agnieszka's loss against Razzano is her last of the summer, ending her string of tournaments during the U.S. Open series. From August 31 to September 13, Agnieszka and Urszula will be participating in the main draw of the Open. Please use this thread for all draws, material, and live scores throughout the tournament.

And finally... Good Luck to Isia and Ula!

Re: U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows - 2009

Tomek was quicker than me

Overall, I'd call it a good draw for Agnieszka, a bit worse for Ula, but maybe she can beat Barrois and cause an upset in the 2nd round?

GL to both of them

Aga Radwanska & Ula Radwanska
Jelena Jankovic


D. Cibulkova/ S. Lisicki/ E. Dementieva/ M. Sharapova/ Y. Shvedova/ L. Safarova/ T. Pironkova/ A. Kerber
all Polish players


Rafael Nadal

Re: U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows - 2009

I don't think Na after injury will advance to R3. Most possibly Aga vs Larcher de Buritto

Re: U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows - 2009

Good draw for Aga, bad draw for Ula.
I hope Aga will be in 4r or maybe QF and I hope Ula will be in 2r and will fight with Safina.

Re: U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows - 2009

Aga's draw is pretty good. Mayr in the first round is a great warm up

Ula's draw isn't bad. She's not playing vs seeded player. Barrois is beatable.

Re: U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows - 2009

Agnieszka's in Venus's quarter of course.

It looks like Ula will get to a show court first

Best of luck to both. Agnieszka, I hope your wrist recovers fully before you have to play.

Well they say women shouldn`t be the president
Cause we go crazy from time to time
Well push my button baby here I come
Yeah look out baby, I`m at high tide

Re: U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows - 2009

I've wanted to post this for quite some time but figured I'd wait until the U.S. Open was very near.. It's just a small point about the draws Agnieszka has received in majors that we might forget about.

AO 2008 - Loses to D. Hantuchova, whose form against Agnieszka carried her to 6-0 2-0 against the eventually finalist.

FO 2008 - Loses to J. Jankovic, who was within 2 games of being in the final.

W 2008 - Loses to S. Williams, eventual finalist.

USO 2008 - Loses to V. Williams, who nearly beat (had multiple set points in both sets) S. Williams, the champion.

AO 2009 - Loses to K. Bondarenko, Agnieszka's only truly bad loss in a major.

FO 2009 - Loses to S. Kuznetsova, the eventual champion.

W 2009 - Loses to V. Williams, the eventual finalist.

Aside from this years Australian Open, this has been one ridiculous ride! Agnieszka must be, over the last two years, the bearer of some of the worst major draws possible. She is usually in good form for the majors and does well in her early round matches, but has the great luck of drawing finalists and champions on a regular basis!

Re: U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows - 2009

Not good news:

Radwanska got injured in New Haven. She retired during the match with french player Virginie Razzano. - She had the same injury a year ago. It's not about the wrist but the tendon near the finger of right hand - told Radwanska's coach on friday evening on Flushing Meadows. - She had this imflammation in Stokholm and now suddenly in New Haven. It's painful as she can't hold her racket comfortably.

Agnieszka tried to train normally on friday but she couldn't get on. - She played 30 minutes and gave up. She takes medicines and there's a minimal improvement. There are two-three day to the beginning of the tournament so we hope it will be good - told Radwański. Agnieszka didn't train on court which doesn't mean she didn't practise at all - on friday she had e.g. two trainings on the gym.

'Agnieszka won't withdraw herself but if it hurt her in the first match, she can retire - told Radwanska's coach

---------

I think that despite an injury she should easily beat Mayr and even Kirilenko which are not at their best form. 3th round is still beatable as Li was also injured and can not play her best shots. I don't even think Li can advance to 3rd round. Agnieszka would face de Brito then

Re: U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows - 2009

Damnit Agnieszka i knew that playing all those tounraments in a row would do her damage. This sucks i want her to reach the quarterfinal and give Serena a good showing but damnit.

I hope her hand will be OK on Monday... I was happy because of the draw, cause it isn't bad for Aga... She is 12., so in the QF she could meet with Safina/Serena/Venus/Dementieva. For Aga Dementieva is the best opponent, but it's only 25% chances for playing her...
But now her hand is the most important, in that situation 4th round and defending points from last year will be a big achievment for her...

Ula... she's unlucky I think... Usually her draw isn't good... but i hope she'll play longer than an hour with Safina (and I want a big suprise!). And next year she should be seeded player so there won't be any problems like that one;D

GL girls!

Re: U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows - 2009

Well, draw isn't that bad so hope Aga does well but with this injury would be tough, hope everything will be okay.
About Ula, I thinkg everybody would love to see a nice suprise from her, it's kind impossible but Dina plays exellent but other day, she can't hit the ball in so Ula give your best but first round first.

Good Luck girls!!
