Szavay Saves Match Point, Captures China Open Title

BEIJING, China - Agnes Szavay continued her assault up the game's elite in Beijing on Sunday, pulling off a comeback win over Jelena Jankovic to take home her second and biggest Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles title and book her spot in the world's Top 20.

With most of the attention on the bottom half of the draw, which featured Jankovic and a recently-returned Lindsay Davenport, among others, the No.6-seeded Szavay was able to cruise into her third final of the summer without losing a set. That trend didn't hold true as she battled No.2 seed Jankovic.

Jankovic came out firing, racing out to a 3-1 lead and earning several chances for 4-1. Szavay fought back and managed to get the opening set back on serve. She then got out to 5-0 in the tie-break - even holding set points at 6-4, 6-5 and 7-6 - but her higher-ranked opponent saved each one and claimed a one set lead.

"In the first set, she started to play better in the tie-break, and I was just too passive," Szavay said. "I missed some balls and she started playing really well."

Having pulled off an unlikely first set comeback Jankovic was full of confidence, and she burst out to a 5-1 lead in the second set, and brought up a match point on her return, with Szavay serving, 30-40. Then came the second serve ace.

"When she had match point, I wasn't thinking about losing the match," Szavay added, "I was just thinking about winning that point."

The match turned on a dime after that gutsy play, as the Hungarian reeled off nine consecutive games to surge ahead 3-0 in the third set. She squandered two match points and was broken while serving for the match at 5-1 in the decider, but broke Jankovic right back in the next game to complete a 67(7) 75 62 victory.

"When I had match point, everything happened so quickly," Jankovic said. "She started playing so fast. I lost my focus, and as the match went on it just became worse. I broke down in the third set. I was just a different player."

"At the end of the match I was a little bit nervous," Szavay said. "It can be hard to finish the match, especially when you're playing against the No.3 player in the world. But I'm happy to finish this with a title win."

The two-hour, 55-minute marathon capped another title run for Szavay, whose recent jump up the rankings includes her maiden victory at the Tier IV clay court stop in Palermo. Having begun the year ranked just inside the Top 200, the 18-year-old had risen to No.23 coming in, and will now rise to No.20.

"This is the biggest success for me so far in my career," Szavay continued. "I was happy I was able to turn today's match around from a bad position. It always feels great to win a tournament, especially after coming back from match point."

Jankovic, who has now lost her last three finals, contemplated her opportunities.

"I had so many opportunities I didn't take and my opponent just wasn't making any mistakes. I let the match go in a different direction. I should have been done but instead I was down in the third set."

But with Szavay only beginning to play regularly on the Tour earlier this year, it was not unheard of that the Serbian world No.3 be unassuming of her talents.

"I didn't know what to expect; we had never played," Jankovic added. "She has been improving and moved up the rankings so quickly. She's young and has huge potential. We will be hearing a lot more from her, I'm sure."

Of course she'll play in Seoul, she's flown to Seoul this morning already. Till next April she has no points to defend
or just a very little She can climb to top 10 till RG or Wimbledon and she can stay there with good results in the summer and the autumn. Her next year will be crucial in her carrier.

Yes, she has only few points to defend at the end of the year, around 50, I think. Definitely not a big deal. Now being a top 20 player, she will have better draws, especially in the Grand Slams. I just hope she keeps playing on the same level because it's not always easy to deal with a new status especially when you're playing a very risky (but so beautiful! ;)) game.

But honestly, I think everything will go in the right direction & I always expect Agi to be in the top 10. With the return of Lindsay, it may not be easy to find a safe place there, but Chakvetadze, Petrova & Hantuchova/Bartoli can really overpassed by Agnes :D.

I must say I really enjoy Agnes' game a lot - this backhand is damn good. Also I'm quite fascinated by her "oldschool" aura, she is so calm and mature out there. A defnite pleasure to watch. :angel:

I also like her blog. It's not the typical boring stuff, written by some desperate agent, pr manager or unemployed journalist. It's just a blog by a cool 19-year old tennis player, who is exited about her tennis carrer. :)

Hi there mate;) I'm Krisztian and I'm from Hungary.Being Hungarian I'm a huge fan of Ági of course:) I heard myself that foreingers are prounouncing her name incorrectly and started to get a little fed up of the tv commentators:DDD Her name is pronounced like this--> Saa-vaa-ee.Not Shaavay like many say. In that case she would be Polish or something. The letter "SZ" in Hungarian is "S" in English. Hope this could help and see you around folks;) HAJRÁ ÁGI!!! GO ÁGI!!!:)

That is what Ági wrote in her blog:

Hi Everyone,

I just got back to the hotel, and I thought I write you quickly, because you must be worried, what the problem is. Unfortunately I could not win in 2 sets, however I had the lead at 5:4, even a serve was a torment in the end. I have a minor traction in my rear thigh muscle, and believe me it was very very to make this decision, but I had to make it, I did not want to take the risk of a bigger traction or of being unable to play on a more important tournament. Unfortunately sometimes we have to be able to say no. Now I try and have rest for a few days, and hope that I will be fine by the Tokyo games.

Thanks a lot for having been with me all week long.
Have a nice weekend everyone!

With love,
Ági

Agnes went to see the doctors yesterday... She didn't get the best news, she might be out of competition for up to 6 weeks!:sad: They couldn't tell her exactly when she will be alright but it might take "up to six weeks, hopefully somewhat less time". Her Zurich and even her Linz showing is in serious jeopardy. This is pretty bad news for all Agnes fans (and good news for competition?). I hope she will be recovering sooner, but obviously the most important thing is to have her completely sound before she gets back on the tour.

She should definitely come back on tour once she is 100% healthy. She will anyway be in the seeds 16/24 for the AO, so she doesn't have to play more this year.

Agi deserves a good break, she's put in a strong late summer and fall season. :D

It's hard to believe that last year around this week I saw her play for the first time, in person, losing to Harkleroad of all people at a Challenger event. Things sure have changed quickly, though even then I knew Agi was a much higher caliber of player.

I hope Agi gets the recovery rest she needs in time to train for next year. I'm expecting big things from her at the Australian Open! :devil:

A real good draw indeed till 4th round ... but this time, I won't underestimate Sveta. She is dangerous this year, won't be easy at all. Even Nadia is a potential threat if she gets out of her slump. We shouldn't forget that Agi will lack references in this event in addition.
R4 would be already a great result. Good luck Agi :bounce:!

Jan 11th, 2008, 07:09 PM
Yeah Kuzni will be a threat and a real hard match it is for sure, maybe even harder then Chakve or Hantu if she can get through her. Agnes lost to Kuzni in the QF atn last year's US Open. Now she has the oppurtunity to fight back if both player will reach the 4th round Can't wait to see the outcome. GO AGI!!!

Agnes sure takes a lot of hits from haters on the main board for a loss like this. :sad:

It's a shame she couldn't get into the Medibank draw for some momentum going in to the Australian. And this loss is a real missed opportunity.

But I think she'll gradually play her way back into form in events that don't have this scrutiny. US hard courts and Euro clay should help her. :hug:

Peterk07
Jan 19th, 2008, 02:58 PM
She said, she played better than last week at Gold Coast, but were unable to maintain her form throughout the entire match. Her game is there, but couldn't find her serve (she hit 12 DF-s, a lot!), made a lot of UE-s, and couldn't win the key points.

She said, the highly increased public interest didn't help her to focus on tennis, and the situation is still quite new to her. She used to play in the shadow before, and could only focus on tennis, while now she can't hide, she has calls by calls from media people, etc. She said she has been told about it, and she tried to prepare for the increasing attention, but it seems this is not something one can prepare, but has to be experienced and get used to it. Finally she said, she of course disappointed, but focusing on the next appearance.

Well, I don't see big problem here. Her form is shaky, but that's acceptable of a young girl, who's just recovered from an injury, and haven't played for more than 3 months. Looking at Makarova's performace, it seems she has picked a girl who is playing her best ever tennis, way better than her ranking indicates. Agi had a close 3 set match against her, didn't choke, fought back twice into the match, and lost only by a tiny margin at the end. That not how players use to collapse. :)

She is mentally strong. She has already proved this in 2006, when she went through a big dropback. Not knowing she was ill (she had mononucleosis) she kept playing, and of course losses came by losses. She still kept working and didn't loose faith. Finally doctors found her illness, she recovered, and here she is now.

So I expect to see a very good Agi soon. :)

Agnes won against Karina Ildor Jacobsgaard (60 63), a danish girl today playing for the Hungarian team at Fed Cup. She also won the doubles with Greta Arn (def Dyrberg/Jacobsgaard 62 62).

Albeit not the strongest opponent, this was her first victory of the year, so congrats Agi ! :)

p.s.:
A few of us watched the game live and we noticed that she has put some weight on. :eek: I wouldn't say it's fat, but she is definitely a little "thicker". I'm not sure. Maybe it just optical illusion, because I've seen her in Melbourne and didn't notice any changes back then.

I am worried that she will go the route of Anna-Lena Groenefeld or Daniela Hantuchova. After tasting an initial success they had too much pressure on themselves that ended up almost destroy them. I hope Daniela can give her some advice.

Very good performance from Agi, that didn't rely only on Olga's mistakes. She hit 18 winners for 16 UE, most of them came from the 1st set when she had difficulties to find her game. She was very calm during all the match while her opponent was out of breath ^^, it was so visible on the court, she was hitting the ball cleanly & constructing well the rallies.
Voila, first match won for Agi after a good FedCup. I'm sure the small slump has now taken an end. :)
Good luck against Tathiana.

"Agnčs Szavay Overpowers Tathiana Garbin in Late Night Clash
00:03 - 07/02/2008 - Cécile Verin

A match of opposite styles unfolded tonight on Central Court with Italy’s Tathiana Garbin (n39) trying to use her experience and consistency to counter the power and depth of Hungary’s young upstart Agnčs Szavay (20). After a 2 hour and 19 minute battle, youth prevailed in Coubertin tonight. (Photo: Panoramic)


With an impressive start and her signature grunt accompanying each of her shots, Garbin, 30, took an early 3-0 lead while her younger opponent, seemed to have trouble getting into the rhythm. The Italian got off to a great start hitting several emphatic winners from the baseline. But it soon became obvious that time was all Szavay needed to adjust and play like a top 20 player when she, in turn, won a series of seven consecutive games using a varied ground strokes, drop shots and passing shots. Aided by the recurrent weakness of the Garbin serve, Szavay’s power game earned her the first set 6-3 in 38 minutes.

In the second set, the Italian seized the opportunity that was offered to her to start with a clean slate and she finally won a game on a surprisingly bad drop shot from Szavay that was more a lapse of concentration than anything else. But with the few spectators left in the stands on her side as the underdog the French crowds typically love so much, Garbin was able to put on a strong show of defensive tennis to counter her opponent’s power, and seemed to be winning most of the longer points. At times, it took the youngest player as much energy to win an entire game as it took the Italian to win a single point against her. Yet the Italian never gave up, waited until she was out of the eye of the Szavay storm, broke her serve, served for the set and offered the Coubertin fans some amazing points in the process. The set went to Garbin the fighter (6-4) in an hour.

The final set was just as good as the previous one and after taking a medical timeout because of a bleeding knee at 2-1, the inexhaustible Italian kept running down all of Szavay’s flat and powerful shots but they eventually became too strong for her and she found herself behind 1-4. As can be expected from a seasoned fighter like Garbin, she never gave up. But the youngster’s power and precision were simply too much for the Italian veteran in the end. With only some 100 die-hard women’s tennis fans remaining in the stadium, Garbin went up to serve to stay in the match trailing 2-5. But, the powerful youngster didn’t falter and closed out a hard-fought first-round match. Agnčs Szavay will be a player to watch as the tournament unfolds."

Bravo Agi. :worship:

Szavay Stuns Weakened Hantuchova

In a 1 hour and 40 minute match, Hungary's Agnes Szavay (20) defeated Daniela Hantuchova (8) of Slovakia, who was suffering from a blister on her right hand, 7-6, 6-1. She is now through to the semifinals where she will face Elena Dementieva.

Agnes Szavay had nothing to lose today and came out swinging. By reaching the quarterfinals in Paris, she matched her career-high ranking of 19, and could even go higher if she gets past the next round. Hantuchova, on the other hand, was clearly the favorite for this match despite facing an impressive up and coming player who has turned heads all week with the way she carried herself and the pop on her groundstrokes. Hantuchova knew she was going to have to play her best tennis to avoid being swept away by the Hungarian whirlwind.

The first match scheduled on Central Court on this quarterfinals day started a few minutes late because Hantuchova had to have her sore right hand treated by the trainer. Yet, the Slovak was right on time when it came to assuming the lead. She won the first three games of the match in ten minutes after some aggressive play featuring several swinging volleys. Szavay’s low first serve percentage did help Hantuchova early on in the match. But the Hungarian continued to put her opponent under pressure from the very beginning of each point. And her attacking style found its rhythm as the match progressed. She broke Hantuchova’s serve to level the match. At 4-4, Szavay turned up the heat on her serve throwing in a series of aces and unreturnable serves. The great serving continued as the Hungarian forced a tiebreak, which saw the powerful youngster prevail. She took the set in 60 minutes.

Only ten minutes into the second set, and after receiving on-court advice from her coach, Daniela Hantuchova requested a medical time-out to treat a nasty blister on her right hand, which had also bothered her during her previous match. It was with a noticeable bandage on her hand that the right-handed Slovak resumed playing, but showed that she was still having trouble gripping her racquet properly. With Hantuchova struggling, the match swung firmly in favor of Szavay. The Hungarian reeled off a series of stunning winners after some long points and gave French fans a taste of what "Come On!" sounds like in Hungarian. Hantuchova was a worthy opponent today, but just couldn't find a way to trouble the in-form youngster, who is showing impressive on-court focus and maturity. She closed out the second set 6-1 to take the match 7-6, 6-1.

The Hungarian awaits the winner of the day's other quarterfinal between Russia's Elena Dementieva and Ukraine's Kateryna Bondarenko in the semifinals. If Szavay can maintain the form she showed today, she may very well be en route to winning her third career title here in Paris.

Her serve didn't work, she struggled, she was down in hell, but somehow could fight back and win the match. If you ask me, I don't know how could she win it, but she just did. A sign of a future champion?. I really hope so. :)

Some people think she should withdraw from Antwerp now. I don't know, they may be right. According to her schedule, she'll enter Antwerp, Doha and Dubai. I even heard rumours about playing at Bangladore (albeit it's not in her official schedule yet). This is a lot to play. Maybe she really should withdraw from one one them.

As Agi said after the Australian, she just needed to get back into the swing of things and overcome the pressure and expectation. She was even in form during patches of her Australian match, so it was just matter of belief and getting in more match play.

I'm looking forward to her Paris final with Anna. Both of them are thinkers. But Agi has the bigger and more versatile game, so she has the potential to snap Anna's 6-0 winning streak in finals if she plays well.

Do you think Agnes will play Antwerp?

On the one hand, I'd love to see her get the experience of playing Henin if Agnes can keep her form. On the other, I'm concerned Agnes doesn't play too much early in the year. Her schedule the last two weeks has been pretty punishing.

It's very impressive that Agnes got so far on fast indoor courts. You can see how her forehand puts her on the defensive on super fact indoor courts.

Agnes could really be a force at Roland Garros if she doesn't burn herself out!

She has already confirmed she will.

Honestly, I don't know what to think. She looked soo exhausted against Anna in the final, so I'd say she needs to rest. But on the other hand, she'll have one day to recover for the tuesday match, and most likely she won't have more than 3 matches next week (Henin is Henin), which is OK. The next tournament will be Doha, a TIER I, a tough one. If she is unlucky, she'll have a tough draw and will drop out early. In this case it's better to play in Antwerp. Whatewer, her management must know what is the best for her.

RG: I think she's got a lot to learn. That forehand need to be improved (or used more effectively), her serve, volley, etc. A lot. And Henin, Ana, Kuzny, Jelena are all very good on clay. So maybe not this year. But we'll see. :)

Last night Agi gave us a present in her blog after she arrived to Antwerp. Here it is, sorry for my bad English...

02/10: Thanks to all!
Author: Agi

Hi all!

We've been luckily arrived to Antwerp, the place of my next tournament. I wanted to write to you a quick note. I am so happy that I managed to play in the final today in Paris. I think I did my best to win today, but unfortunately Anna was better then me. I'd like to thank to everyone who came out to the stadium to support me, and of course I'd like to thank to you who were supporting me in front of the TV or even in front of the Internet. I do hope my next week will also good and finally my dream can come true and I can play with Henin. Tomorrow I will take a rest, because that two 3sets game cost me high, but we'll see each other Tuesday for sure! Thanks the support to all once again!

Good night!

With Love,
Ági

good draw I think, but always the same top10 faces on Agi's path (Chaky, JJ, Hantu, Kuzy). little bit boring. I wanna some Agi-Ana or Agi-Masha matches! :drool:


Sugi plays tomorrow the doubles final in Antwerp, so Agi will play just Tuesday, i guess.

Feb 17th, 2008, 12:05 AM
Well, i cant say i'm terribly disappointed that Agi won't face Masha early. ;) Agi should find her best form first.

Anyway, not a bad draw, all toptenners are beatable. JJ seems to be on downhill, Hantu's not 100% healthy and Agi knows how to beat both of them. Chaky is difficult, but Agi was close to beat her twice, maybe this is the right time for revenge. :)

So I'm positive, i feel this time Agi will bring her A game. But let's get through the first round first.

A difficult season for Agi who is out in R1 for the 4th time this year :sad:. She lost 67 06 against Sugi. She is still fighting to find her form, there is absolutely no doubt about her talent, there are so many morons on GM, it's just that she has to adapt herself to be the conditions of being the favourite & having tough matches since the very beginning of the tournament. She lacks a bit of experience, but it will come with time.

Don't worry Agi :hug: ...
Maybe if she cannot be more consistent, she should privilege lower events so as to rebuild her confidence.

Peterk07

This was a bad loss, Agi. :( I don't even remember when was the last time she had been bagelled.

Anyway, she should keep working, results will come. Maybe this spring's hardcourt season will be wasted, but clay season will help her getting back on track again. If those damn serves will start working again, she'll - as we say - eat toptenners for breakfast again. ;)

hey guys, im a huge justine fan obviously....
after seeing agnes in dubai last saturday, she just got a new fan in me...
she's really sweet and nice...
when i asked her if i can take a pix of her she said yes and gave me a big smile...
i'll attach the pix later...

too bad she's going to meet sharapova in R1...not a very good start i guess,
but let's all keep our fingers crossed, maria won't win all the time...
they might play only in wednesday i guess,
im hoping she'll challenge maria and we'll have a good match...
that should boost her confidence too...

Sally Todd
Feb 24th, 2008, 07:06 PM
:eek::unsure: about Agi drawing Sharapova. I've been wanting to see her play Maria, but the timing is less than ideal.

I hope Agi goes in loose because she does have the game to test Maria. If she mixes up her shots and keep them deep, Maria won't be able to go into La Femme Nikita mode.

It's CRUCIAL for Agi to overcome her sleepy way of starting matches, though. Otherwise, Maria will pounce on that tendency and have Agi down a set before she blinks.

GO AGI!:bounce:

Agi lost again and the people in GM are happy. :rolleyes: That happens when you spend your whole life in front of the computer. Anyways, it's a tough loss but it seems you never know with Agnes. Probably the next tournament she will reach the final again just to loose in the first round of the tournament after that. But it's her first full year on the tour and as long as she enjoys it, we should be happy. Moreover there is always clay to come...:)

Feb 26th, 2008, 03:33 PM
I didn't expect that she would lose in this way ... I thought she would manage to get the win in three tough sets. Those scorelines remind me of Safarova's when she is losing :sad:. Not good at all for Agnes ... Actually I doubt that she is enjoying to lose in 1st round now that she is in top 20. :hug:
She better take a break soon ... This year seems like a transition for her, of course she still has time to regroup & get better results but it's always hard to confirm after such a breakthrough. We have to be patient that's all, but no way we are losing hope :bounce:!

It's now a fact that she is in negative spiral. And it's mental. She has the game to win these matches, but it's just not possible if your confidence has completely gone. But i'm sure she'll be back in form, just needs time.

Finish your high scool exams Agi, and continue working on that modified serve movement and fittness "upgrade". It'll pay back in long term, and that's what matters.

You are obviously right about that. But it's better to loose in the first round of Dubai and know your ranking is quite safe then struggling outside the Top 100. And life on the tour is definitely more comfortable than on the Challenger Circuit. ;)

And if she ends the year in the Top 25 and wins a tournament, I think that would be a good year for her. Because she has so much time to fulfil her potential.

Sally Todd
Feb 28th, 2008, 02:00 AM
Peter K and tiptop, you make some great points about this rough stretch. Considering her fans are sporting, it's dispiriting to see people on the GM board make merry about Agi's losses. What has she done to anyone? :shrug:

Jankovic had trouble when she was focused on school, and it's better in the long run for Agi to include studies in what she is doing, even if she is struggling on the tennis court.

Obviously Agi's game is seriously backsliding at the moment, but we all know the ability is there. I hope she has some good stretches this year. She's far from the only top 20-30 player to be having major struggles right now. It's just a matter of getting back her confidence -- which isn't easy -- and thus get back in touch with the strongest parts of her game. I think clay might help. US hard courts, even, as well.

To be honest, these indoor or faster (like Dubai) outdoor events might not be Agi's best terrain, because of the length of her forehand swing. It's important for her to get some wins where she feels comfortable. The Paris tournament is so damn ping-pong quick that I think it's tought to take momentum from it. Look at Anna C's losses immediately afterward...

Peterk07
Feb 29th, 2008, 11:01 PM

Yesterday Agi's been given a nice cheering bouquet of flowers by her hungarian fanclub. She received it in her Dubai hotel room. A lovely surprise. She wrote a new entry in her blog and thanked the fans for it.

Actually she seems to be OK. She's still positive, doesn't panic. She wrote that she feels that she's in very good hands, she trusts her management and her coaches too. So she knows that she only have to concentrate on training, and results will come sooner or later.

Voila Agnes lost early in the tournament again 46 76 64. She blew away a big lead in the second set apparently, it doesn't look like Agi to choke against low ranked players. It really shows that she is looking for confidence these days. I hope she doesn't go down on herself, it's a tough period, we knew it. Stats on serve are more than decent though, 3 breaks for Akgul that's all ; 8 DFs for 2 aces though & 71% of points won after her first serve. It was more a matter of BPs not converted :( 3 out of 10 only.
I don't know where she plays next -probably in Miami- but I really hope she focuses on clay directly, it's her best surface & she can score big points on.

This draw is not bad at all, we are not asking Agi to already be back to her 2007 stellar form. A R4 run would already be good to see. Vesnina or Likhovtseva shouldn't be too hard to beat. Let's see which Agnes shows up before talking of the rest of the tournament.

Oh God, Agi lost already 62 46 61 :help:. Still lots of problems with her serve & playing well on the crucial points. She wasted many occasions to win games and it became harder and harder to be back in the match. I suppose she is disappointed, this loss puts an end to a very inconsistent first part of the year in which she showed the best and the worst. Now she is in need of matches, clay is her best surface, she has to perform well on pretty soon so that she can keep her rank at a decent level.

I would like to find a beautiful way to say it, but it seems I can't ... So, I will make it simple : Agnes won her match 64 61!

I'm very happy for her, first because she took her revenge in style & then because she finally stops her losing streak. Of course, nothing proves that the 2007 Agi is back but I think this match is promising for her.
She had to fight to get the first set despite an early lead. She had to save several BPs for a 5/4 advantage for Makarova. But then, she had few problems on her serve in the second set, the stats are looking good :).

Haha, Agi, so great to see such a win! She scared me when she failed at converting her MPs, but all in all, it's a real good win. Her stats on serve are definitely more than correct! This may be a new beginning for her, even in low confidence, Agi will always represent a threat on clay.
Good luck against Lindsay, nothing is impossible once Agi will manage to return her serve ^^.
