Last seven tournaments:
Rome - opening round loss
Brussels - win
RG - third round loss
Eastbourne - opening round loss
Wimbledon - final
Olympic games - opening round loss
Montreal - quarterfinal loss, having won only 3 games against an opponent she had beaten earlier in the year
Yes Wimbledon final is her lifetime achievement, but overall her form is nowhere near as rock solid as it was up until Madrid. Just a food for thought. I have no expectations going into the next 3 tournaments and just hope she finds her form again when the time to defend the Asian double crown arrives.
In Rome she lost to her nemesis Cetkovska, in RG she lost to a Kuznetsova in God mode (a player way better than her on clay anyway), in Eastbourne she lost to Grass super specialist Pironkova... Actually, only her loss to Goerges in the Olympics was quite surprising
Montréal was her first tournament on hard courts since Miami, and the conditions were not really good. She wasn't playing very well, that's a fact, but it sometimes happens. We'll see in Cincinnati...
Aga usually plays well in Asia, so she could make some damages there again. And after all, she doesn't need to defend her titles absolutely, deep runs will be good.
I do think she is slumping. I don't think she played outstanding tennis this year at all, but she was able to pull herself together and stay consistent. She lost focus after Wimbledon. I am sure it took a lot of mental energy from her. She needs to get her focus back and then hopefully her form from Asia last year
The best of luck to all tennis players; The game is on!
P.S.Well,... special luck to Agnieszka Radwanska, Marta Domachowska, Daniela Hantuchova, Urszula Radwanska
