Re: Beginning of the 2013

Wonderful performance as usual

Absolutely love this girl.

Go get 'em Aga.

Anyone have the interview after her match where people say she was very funny? - I missed it

No. She was asked on court if she ever gets angry, and she said she's pissed by slow drivers and when the Internet doesn't work.

Re: Beginning of the 2013

Good win over Ivanovic, Aga !

So consistent. Great performance from Aga, all match on a high level. The slices were really effective. Aga closed out both sets with Aces. Mentally very strong, Aga played the important points so well. Impressive anticipation, excellent footwork/movement. Aga is an incredibly smart player. The only one you could compare to Hingis. QF vs Li will be very tough. Hope I`m wrong and Aga can stop Li.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

I don't think so. Apparently Eurosport cannot broadcast on-court interviews of female players for whatever reason, they're only aired by some American TV (ESPN, Tennis Channel or whoever else). I only heard about it second hand. Barbara Schett always interviews players for Eurosport (and she's such an awkward interviewer ).

Re: Beginning of the 2013

Very disappointing performance.

The way Aga started the second set winning those 2 games and 8 consecutive points is how she should have played the whole match. She created sharp angles corner to corner and placed the ball in awkward positions to set up the error. But once she got up to 2-0 she retreated back to just hitting the ball directly back to Li Na waiting for the error to come despite Li getting her act together and reducing her errors considerably. Aga played much better against Ivanovic and Watson despite them being lower ranked than Li and earlier matched.

She must remember her fantastic start to the year however including 2 titles and a 13 match winning streak.

Re: Beginning of the 2013

I'm very disappointed. It was like watching 2009-10 Agnieszka back. She gave the worst performance in this tournament when it mattered the most. And of course in the press conference she said both played a very good match

Re: Beginning of the 2013

It was very sad Aga played completely without motivation... Time to rest. What is the next tournament?

Re: Beginning of the 2013

I think her poor performance today is due to fatigue. Aga has played so many matches this year and given the amount of running she does every match to cover the court, it was only natural this would happen.
She had a good chance to advance to the semis, but her body let her down.

Still, the last month has been a wonderful one for Aga, it can only get better


GO MARTINA HINGIS!!!!!!!!
Myskina, kirilenko, chakvetadze. Douchevina, Petrova, Clijsters, Zvonareva, Dementieva, Vaidiosava, Voskoboeva, !!!!!
