2011 Schedule

Well now that her 2010 season is over, we should start a thread for her 2011 schedule . Is anything confirmed? Obviously the big events are, but do we know her early schedule for 2011 yet? I think she should play a lot of MM's in the beginning of the season to get a lot of confidence and match play . Also, with her current ranking she MAY have to play qualies in Sydney (like last year), so I'd rather her play in Hobart where she won't need to play qualies and she'll have a great chance at getting a lot of points . What do you guys want for Agi? I want this for the first few months:
-Brisbane
-Hobart
-Australian Open
-Fed Cup
-Paris (it was very weak this year and she reached QF)
-Week Off (she didn't play Dubai last year and she likes Mexico apparently so give her time to get there and also time for her to rest)
-Acapulco
-Monterrey
-Indian Wells
-Miami
-Charleston (usually easy points, and it's on clay, and Miami is the week before)

Pretty much like this year, but with Hobart replacing Sydney, and with her playing Fed Cup and in Charleston

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: 2011 Schedule

Brisbane's a very nice tournament, but of course I'd personally prefer her to come to Auckland where I live... . I'd have to think about the rest.

Re: 2011 Schedule

I liked this year's schedule, except that she should play in FED cup now (I want my dream doubles team Agi-Timi).
In Sydney she had her only top10 win this year, but the possible qualies and the terrible draw (R1 Jankovic, R2 Rezai) makes it a bad choice.
And if we want her to play Charleston (what I think is a great tournament) then she should forget Acapulco. Charleston will be in the new schedule right after Miami.
So:

-Auckland
-Hobart
-Australian Open
-Fed Cup
-Paris (she plays it, because GDF is her main sponsor, and that's why she is a bit more motivated too)
-Week Off
-Week off
-Monterrey
-Indian Wells
-Miami
-Charleston

Re: 2011 Schedule

I think Ági will play in Sydney... Her favourite town is Sydney.

Re: 2011 Schedule

This year was a mess I like that she wants to play some Internationals, but she was horrible the second half of the year I would like:

Brisbane (Good start to the year)
Sydney (She likes the city
Australian Open (Obviously)
-Likely week of rest-
Fed Cup (I support Fed Cup, and she needs Olympic eligibility anyways)
Paris (Good history, and probably a fairly easy draw)
-Week of rest-
Acapulco (She seems to like it, and I like her playing Internationals )
Monterrey (Good warm up for Indian Wells/Miami)
Indian Wells (Mandatory)
Miami (Mandatory)
-Week of rest-
-Fed Cup/Week of rest-
Stuttgart (She is good on clay, even though this field is strong)
Estoril (A clay international would be useful)
Madrid (Mandatory)
-Week of rest-
Warsaw (Big points, week draw)
French Open (Major)
-Likely week of rest-
-Week of rest-
Eastbourne (Good for her to play a grass warm-up, and I favor it being in Britain over 's-Hertogenbosch)
Wimbledon (Major)
-Likely week of rest-
Budapest (Obviously)
Palermo (She hasn't played since winning, and needs to defend her Prague points this week)
-Week of rest-
-Week of rest-
Toronto (Good US Open series event to play)
Cincinnati (She needs to play more US Open series this year)
New Haven (If it's still around, but she has good history here, so should play)
US Open (Major)
-Likely week of rest-
-Week of rest-
Seoul (To prepare for the big events)
Tokyo (To prepare for Beijing)
Beijing (Mandatory)
Osaka (To finish her Asian swing)
-Week of rest-
-Week of rest-
Bali?

IMO something like Quebec City or Portoroz could be nice, but I can't see her playing them I say no to Charleston, because she would've played a lot up to that point. And if she isn't in Bali running, then I would prefer no Seoul, then Linz and Moscow at the end of the year.

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Re: 2011 Schedule

Warsaw and Portoroz most likely won't take place next year
But there will be a tournament in Baku apparently
Very fair that Azerbaijan gets a tournament and Serbia, Belgium, Switzerland, Croatia, Slovakia, Greece, Ukraine, Romania, Estonia, Belarus, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Bulgaria, etc. don't get and they have the same amount as Russia and Germany

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

No Brisbane nor Sydney
Australian Open is not sure

Maybe she plays first at Fed Cup.

Re: 2011 Schedule

If she was injured then why did she play in the Budapest exhibition?

Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.

Re: 2011 Schedule

Maybe later we will get more info, but it really doesn't make sense. She isn't injured, just doesn't feel good, she was ill, and they couldn't start the training in time. But I don't understand what is the AO doing with that. OK, she will get 2 extra weeks to prepare without Brisbane and Sydney, but to not play in a grand slam...

Ági won't play at Australian Open, she plays in Fed Cup first.

She says it on szavayagi.hu

I know she'll lose the 210 points from last year, but that should also help with the season after when she'll have nothing to defend until February. So I think long-term this could be good for her. I'm really sad that I won't get to see her playing again for so long though. Hopefully she comes back and has an amazing season and stays healthy, because she was playing some great tennis last season in between all the injuries.
I'm sorry, but you're way to faithful in her. She has gone only backwards in three years, yet you're consistently supporting her and making excuses I just don't see how someone can make a decision to skip a major so lightly . And "'never had success" is very loose - last year she had match points against a very near finalist.

Re: 2011 Schedule

^Not to be rude, but if she didn't play well in Melbourne over the past few years, wouldn't she want to improve her record there?

I personally think it was a stupid decision from Agnes

Re: 2011 Schedule

Well everyone is entitled to their own opinion

I just think it's sad that she doesn't believe that she would play well in OZ
