Re: Istambul YEC 2013

Aga lost to Kvitova 4-6 4-6

Kvitova is a horrible match-up for her. Head To Head now 1-5

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

Re: Istambul YEC 2013

She got a terrible group. Hopefully she wins against Kerber so it isn't pure humiliation. She just doesn't have the power to compete against Serena/Kvitova/Power players. There are only so many errors she can draw out of them and if they are on form and making few errors it is over. She always puts up a great fight. I really respect that about her. That and it isn't all about force and intimidation.

I can't help but feel she would have made the SF if she was in the other group but that is the luck of the draw unfortunately.

Re: Istambul YEC 2013

Other than bulk up and add more power I don't see where else she can go. She just gets blown away each time she plays a top player. Unless she's happy staying where she is in the rankings and bullying scrubs then she's ok but if she wants to win slams and really compete with the best then she has to change something. There's a lot to think about this off season

Aga lost to Serena 2-6 4-6 !

Serena is simply too good for Aga. Head To Head now 0-8

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

For sure. Bad luck with this group. The other group is so much easier

True. But the good thing is there are not many players on WTA Tour like Serena/Kvitova. And Serena is the best tennis player ever so no shame at all losing to her. I`m sure Aga would have a chance to beat every player of the other group. Aga was unlucky to get Serena and Kvitova.

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

Re: Istambul YEC 2013

I thought Kvitova looked beatable. Aga was awful though.

Re: Istambul YEC 2013

Aga lost 2-6 2-6 to Kerber !

Weak performance from Aga. Strong from Kerber. A tournament to forget for Aga

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

Re: Istambul YEC 2013

A total disaster to end the year I can find hundreds of excuses for her poor performance but there's no need.

Hope she will a good rest to fight for 2014 which will be really hard, as a lot of players ranking below her is growing fast or raising their forms.

Re: Istambul YEC 2013

Nightmare group + 3 days back to back + being beaten by Serena on the first day is enough to demotivate everyone. She ceased to care after she lost the first match.

It could be costly to her seeding going into the AO though. Li Na is breathing down her back and all she has to do is beat Kvitova in the SF to climb to 3 overtaking Aga and Sharapova.

It wasn't an outstanding year but it was consistent with a better record at the Slams. I would hope next year she would be a contender for bigger titles. She has a lot to think about in the offseason.

Re: Istambul YEC 2013

Down to number 5 now. I somehow just don't think she'll re-enter top 4.

There is a chance if Li flop at the AO. And if Aga will be quite fresh in the new season, and will be lucky with the draw, she may reach SF there... One of her biggest assets is something Li is lacking in - consistency.
