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!
