Radwanskas' autumn tennis trips (Asia + Indoor season)

AGNIESZKA:

Toray Pan Pacific Open - Tokyo - PREMIER 5 - Main Draw
China Open - Bejing - PREMIER MANDATORY - Main Draw
Generali Ladies Linz - Linz - INTERNATIONAL - Main Draw
Kremlin Cup - Moscow - PREMIER - Main Draw

ULA:

Hansol Korea Open - Seoul - INTERNATIONAL - Main Draw <SR>
Toray Pan Pacific Open - Tokyo - PREMIER 5 - Quallies <WC>
Rakuten Japan Open - Tokyo - 100+H ITF CHALLENGER - Quallies <no SR>
Generali Ladies Linz - Linz - INTERNATIONAL - Main Draw Alternate <no SR>
BGL Luxembourg Open - Luxembourg - INTERNATIONAL - Main Draw Alternate (5 out of MD) <SR>


Maybe at least the happy ending of the season Ula didn't enter Linz with SR but Aga is a top seed and the biggest star in the field there so I guess they negotiated the WC for Ula.

Re: Radwanskas' autumn tennis trips

Aga has a LOT of points to defend here. Hopefully she'll manage to do it to some extent at least...
and I don't even dare to hope for a title in Linz

As for Ula I'm looking forward for those Int. events. She can get some very needed wins there. Good luck

Re: Radwanskas' autumn tennis trips

I wish both the best of luck. I have to say this year Agnieszka is good, but the expectations of everyone are higher than what she delivers. I do hope for change soon.

The best of luck to all tennis players; The game is on!
-Andre
P.S.Well,... special luck to Agnieszka Radwanska, Marta Domachowska, Daniela Hantuchova, Urszula Radwanska
Bally, Rest In Peace!

Re: Radwanskas' autumn tennis trips

Ula is on the list of Ningbo 100k+H in China in the week of 27th September (WTA Tokyo week). So far she's 7th ALT but for sure there will be some withdrawals.

Re: Radwanskas' autumn tennis trips

Aga presented as biggest underachiever

Tennis Players With Big-Stage Frigh

The Daily Fix HOME PAGE »


By Carl Bialik

Away from Grand Slam courts over the past year, David Ferrer is among the best players in the world, nearly as effective as 16-time Grand Slam champ Roger Federer. At major tournaments, he’s almost a nonentity. He hasn’t reached a quarterfinal in over two years, and he’s reached just one Grand Slam semifinal in his career despite entering 20 major tournaments ranked in the Top 20. Of those 20 tournaments, he’s lost to a lower-ranked player 17 times

Some players treat every point of every tour event like match point at Wimbledon’s Centre Court. Others use the tour events as tune-ups, practicing and working out kinks in their games while conserving energy and seemingly caring little about winning matches, let alone titles. The result is that rankings, which dictate seedings at tournaments, often don’t reflect how well players play on the biggest stages, when the sport is attracting its biggest audiences.

The most extreme example among Top 20 men and women is Serena Williams. Even before her recent foot injury, which kept her out of several tour events and the U.S. Open, Williams played few WTA events, and didn’t do much at the ones she entered. Among the Top 20 women, she ranks 13th in points at events outside the Grand Slams. More than two thirds of her ranking points come from majors, the highest proportion of any woman in that group and just behind Juan Martin del Potro, who has been injured for much of the time since he won last year’s U.S. Open. Since Williams won at Charleston in April 2008, she has won five majors, a tour championship (which by ranking points is three quarters of a major) — and no other tour events.

The anti-Williams is No. 10 Agnieszka Radwanska, who has the fourth-most points at non-majors in the last year, but hasn’t reached a major quarterfinal and was upset in the second round in Flushing this week.

Though he enters many more events, Federer is, like Williams, a veteran who focuses on the biggest events. Despite failing to reach the semifinals at the last two majors after 23 straight, Federer still has gotten 54% of his ranking points from majors over the last year, the highest proportion among Top 20 men after Del Potro. At all other events over the last year, Federer has just the fourth-most points among Top 20 players, and is barely ahead of a group of five other men, including Ferrer.

Ferrer is the biggest underachiever at majors — or overachiever at other events, depending on how you look at it — in the men’s Top 15, and third-biggest in the Top 20, behind Ivan Ljubicic and Marcos Baghdatis, both of whom kept to form by exiting the Open in first-round upsets. Ferrer, though, has advanced to the third round, and has a favorable draw to reach a quarterfinal — where he’d likely face countryman Rafael Nadal, who is No. 1 in both ranking points at majors and away from majors.

She is on the entry list, currently 18 out of MD

I've just seen it's a joint tournament with ATP 500 (eg. Nadal will play there)

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: Radwanskas' autumn tennis trips

So it's strange she chose Linz over Osaka. In Osaka with her SR she would be directly in MD. And it's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay closer than Austria.

She said in one interview that she wanted to save some opportunities to play with SR for the next season and after US Open she wanted to use only one or two SR (I guess she chose Seoul and Luxembourg). I think that in Linz she has a big chance of getting WC because Agnieszka will also play there, maybe Radwanska's team are trying to get her WC there as you mentioned in the 1st post

Re: Radwanskas' autumn tennis trips

Main Draw of Seoul is out, not good for Ula
