Agi lost 46 67 :hug:. A pretty nice battle even though I'm disappointed that she lost. She was a bit too short on her second serves & overall she struggled to return Lindsay's bombs. Considering how Lindsay is successful in this tournament, this can't be viewed as a bad loss. This tournament should put her on the right track, I'm confident for that.

She will defeat one by one the players that corwardly took advantage of her slump ^^! Nicely done Agi :hug:. As expected, we are seeing signs of form thanks to clay!
I don't know if it was mentionned here but Agi is 13rd this week. This is simply excellent, of course this is partly due to the fall of Tatiana, Nicole or Schnyder ... but she would have reached this step at some point of her carrier anyway :p. I realize that she may break top 10 with solid results in Grand Slams.

Well, let's go back on Earth. She has a Sugi to defeat. Good luck!

Nice win this time. The second set was close, but Agi is winning the important points again, which is promising. Sugiyama will be a tough opponent. Experienced, consistent, and a brilliant volleyer. But Agi can beat her. :yeah:

Iceland
Apr 15th, 2008, 07:56 PM
Agi won 75 36 64 :woohoo:! Another solid win under her belt! She blew away a 42 lead in the last set but managed to recover nicely breaking Sugiyama to serve for the match. She must feel so relieved that everything is going back in order. People who wrote her off stupidly because she had a difficult start of the year will regret it, Agi is back :p!

She plays Safina now, she was last year's finalist, I'm expecting a tough match but I think Agi may realize her first big upset of her "comeback" here ;). Good luck!

Now, didn't I say long ago that clay would be magic for Agi? :D Of course, I was just one of many to say this And I'd prefer it if she didn't have bad stretches to recover from. :lol:

But all these revenge wins are great to see. I think Agi can cause some waves at Roland Garros this year if she keeps it up.

Peter, what is Agi's grass game like? Based on her serve and her growing net abilities, I would think she has great potential on the surface. But has she played on grass much?

Next up, Safina. Playing a doubles partner is always a head trip. I hope it doesn't impact their friendship/partnership, since Safina is defending a lot of points in Charleston. But it shouldn't. Good luck to Agi!

Nice upset, Dinara is always helpful when you need confidence!

It was extremely tense at the end of the second set, Agi completely choked but managed to recover on time ;). Things are looking really good for her, next comes the winner of Alizé/Sori, so she will be in this encounter the absolute favourite which means she has a chance to go into SF!

Well done Agi! I'm so happy for her, it's also nice to see the rebirth of a player especially someone like her. She deserves it!

She's won already a Wimbledon title in doubles, in her junior years.

Agi won against Safina, first set, easy 6:2, in the second set more excitement, 7:5... Now they can play again side by side. Good luck to them!

As PapaAndy said, she won the juniors in doubles in 2005. In addition to that, she reached the semis in the junior singles race (lost to Radwanska).

Grass is a tricky surface. Girls - except british girls - don't have much experience b/c grass season is very short, and only a very few of them played on grass in their childhood. So, who knows?

But I think Agi is basically an all-court talent. She considered to be a clay courter, but only because she grew up playing on red clay, so that's the surface she knows the best. But she adopted her game very quickly to hard courts last year. Grass is even faster than hardcourt, but I think, Agi will eventually be good on grass too. Despite being in the middle of her slump, she reached the final in Paris beating Hantuchova and Demi - on a ping-pong fast surface. That's a good sign.

I'm so pleased to see Ági doing well again. :) I really didn't like to see her have that run of defeats (though I understand she was remodelling her serve). I'm hoping she can continue with her good form, and get better, and betterandbetterandbetter... :)

Good luck, Ági!!

Clearly while Agi is winning again she is not at her best and doesn't have full confidence. That is the only explanation for losing today to Cornet. She failed in the crucial moments of both sets. The belief and confidence still not there.

Iceland
Apr 18th, 2008, 11:29 PM
Yes, I agree with that. She was the first player to break in both sets, but couldn't confirm it. She is still not at her best, her big choke against Safina proved it but at least her form is improving. She made two good tournaments in a row, so if she keeps this consistency, she will already have a solid basis before Roland-Garros.

I wish we could have had images of this match, I really wonder how Alizé managed to deal with Agi's huge groundstrokes. Hopefully somebody will make a report of it.

selyoink
Apr 19th, 2008, 01:28 AM
I really wish Agi had won because then she would have been on tv and also gotten to face one of the games greatest. It would have been a great opportunity to see how she measures up against the top competition. We know she can knock off the Hantuchovas of the world but are yet to see how she measures up against any of the real top players except for Kuznetsova.

Iceland
Apr 19th, 2008, 09:14 AM
It's pretty amazing to think that she moved up to the 13rd rank without having played Justine, Venus, Maria or Serena. At least she had a first experience against a former number 1 last week. Now that she found some form, she will probably respect her seeding status & get to play top players. This is the best way for her to find her confidence. She knows how to play being the underdog, I'm sure she would surprise us.

Peterk07
Apr 19th, 2008, 05:51 PM
First, congrats Alize, she is a very talented girl with bright future. And she is my second favourite after Agi. ;)

So. Agi. I think this time it wasn't the confidence. It was simply bad - or not good enough - form. Agi said she didn't play well against Safina, but tactically she could beat her. Alize was a different story, Agi didn't find Cornet's - who is playing in the form of her life - weak side.

I'm a little disappointed because these were winnable 80 points. Early round wins don't pay this well. Anyway, Agi is around 20-22 on the year-to-date rankings, which is acceptable. In fact, this shows, how high the expectations are. From her, being nr. 20-22 considered as bad slump. This just underlines our hopes, that she will eventually be a major impact on tennis in the followind decade. ;)

It's actually logical. Last year in mid-April (same calendar period of the year) she was outside the top 150. She entered TOP50 eight moths ago, and out of this 8, she was injured for 3 months. So she had about 5 months altogether to play with top players. She has played 6 of the TOP12 (twice against Kuzny and Hantu), and 12 of the TOP20. It's ok for 5 months. What I actually find amazing is that she has positive (or at least even) balance against them. Talented young players upset big names, but having such a good balance in this early stage of a carreer is rare - even if it will go worse in the near future. If...

The loss to Alize is disappointing, no doubt. It shows Agi isn't even close to her best form. Alize is a strong solid clay court player. But when Agi is playing well she should be able to beat Alize.

Seeing Alize play today for the first time since the US Open, Agi really didn't do enough against Cornet's weak serve. And because Agi has had to switch to an abbreviated serve, hers isn't the weapon it was last year. I'm not sure if it ever will be again, but I hope it becomes more consistent and powerful.

The good thing is that things are looking up for Agi again and she'll be heading onto the comfortable red clay with more confidence.

Agi has a good draw in Berlin, she meets Sequera in R1, then Yan or Muller, before a meeting with Marion, Lucie or Virginie.

Sad that Sequera had to retire, but Agi has the all important win:) I hope she can get through her next one. I think Muller would give her more problems because she is local. I have seen more of Muller on clay, and she is good on it, but Yan Zi is tough too. Good luck Agi:hug:

Agi defeated Lisicki 76 63 :yeah:. A very close match, Agi had to fight against her serve (11 BPs for Sabine) to get through. It was definitely a tough opponent to face, I wish I could see the encounter. Apparently Agi didn't play extremely well. She seems to have learned how to win ugly ^^.

But I'm a bit disappointed at the moment, I thought she would really find her good form on clay and it's not totally back. She surely needs to work more on her new serve.
She plays another ballbasher now, Petra Kvitova. As she is very confident in herself, I expect a difficult match for Agnes. I hope I'm proven wrong. Good luck!

She said in her interview after the match that she is still struggling with her serve. If she hits the faster/stonger one than the 1st percentage drops and makes too many DF-s, and if she uses the slower one the opponent can attack it. She said it took more than a set to feel the right speed and strength to use againts Lisicky. But she also said that she practices her serve every day and it's getting better by time.

I see another problem but not completely sure about it. I think she should be more agressive. She definitely could be, so sometimes I don't understand why she's too defensive. It can be a head problem, but I'm not sure about it. Her coach said last year that Agi's main problem is that she is not that "I have one big weapon" type of player. Having one big weapon you don't have to think too much, just concentrate on that and give your best. But when your strength is variability, shot selection then you need to figure out what is the best against a certain player in a certain situation. This can be difficult for an inexperienced player. If she can't find the right tactic and right shots it can hurt her confidence. But I'm not sure. :unsure:

Whatever, I hope she get's through Kvitova, and then anything can happen. ;)

She said in her interview after the match that she is still struggling with her serve. If she hits the faster/stonger one than the 1st percentage drops and makes too many DF-s, and if she uses the slower one the opponent can attack it. She said it took more than a set to feel the right speed and strength to use againts Lisicky. But she also said that she practices her serve every day and it's getting better by time.

I see another problem but not completely sure about it. I think she should be more agressive. She definitely could be, so sometimes I don't understand why she's too defensive. It can be a head problem, but I'm not sure about it. Her coach said last year that Agi's main problem is that she is not that "I have one big weapon" type of player. Having one big weapon you don't have to think too much, just concentrate on that and give your best. But when your strength is variability, shot selection then you need to figure out what is the best against a certain player in a certain situation. This can be difficult for an inexperienced player. If she can't find the right tactic and right shots it can hurt her confidence. But I'm not sure. :unsure:

Whatever, I hope she get's through Kvitova, and then anything can happen. ;)

Very interesting post, I totally agree with you. Ana knows what she has to do to hit a winner while Agi has a more balanced game. It should come with the experience, it's actually her first complete season on the tour even though she has been playing WTA for many years. I would say that she has to go more for her shots on BH.
Good win in doubles :).

Agi still sucks :sad: She choked away the first set having served for it at least once and maybe twice. Had 5-1 in tiebreak then lost 6 points in a row. After taking the second set she was broken right away in the third and Kvitova never looked back. Such a bad year for Agi so far. She won't last long in the top 20 if she keeps playing like this. Blew a golden opportunity with her cakewalk draw.

Have you seen her match against Kvitova? I have, and i think this loss - though is bad, because she blew the chance to take the 1st set - is a completely different story than her losses earlier this year. She actually played well. I haven't seen her playing this good in whole year. She served well - her power serves are coming back, even on the 2nd serve -, and in the 1st and 2nd sets she did only make relatively few UE-s.

Looking at the other matches, and other "quality player's" performances, I think Agi drew a very difficult opponent with this Kvitova. This chech girl played really high quality tennis yesterday. I have seen her against Azarenka a few weeks ago, and now against Agi, and I have to say this girl will be very soon in the top20 even top10. Bot her FH and BH are powerful, she moves well, and she was precise with her shots.

Agi always had problems with power girls on their good days. This is a known weakness in her game. She's too defensive and sometimes waits for the opponent to miss when she should take the control. She needs to figure out how to play against them. She has the game to do it, "just" needs to learn and use the right tactics.

That's GREAT news! I didn't see the match, but noticed she had good (and comparatively large) net stats.

I've always suspected that Agi could be a great grass court player. One of the reasons is what you've mentioned -- she has net abilities. She made exactly the same impression on me the one time I saw her play in person. The (sometimes only potential) variety in her game separates her from SO MANY players of her generation and slightly older.

One other thing Lynxy -- I think Agi has had to deal with a variety of internal doubts and pressures this year because of how quickly she flew up the ranks, and also because she had to retool her serve. As her career progresses we'll be seeing more of the impressive ability to close out matches (and win from the brink of defeat) that she showed in 2007.

Here's to the tennis Terminator! :D I hope she Terminates some more players at Wimbledon this year. :devil:

Iceland
Jun 25th, 2008, 07:51 AM
Agi has a game that works on every surface actually, she moves pretty well, her ground strokes are always devastating and as you mentioned, she is capable of playing at the net effectively. I have no doubt whatsoever on her ability of reaching top 10. I really hope she makes something in this Wimbledon, she has a good draw for it. I'm just curious about the way she will deal with Niculescu whose slices are dangerous on grass. Yet I have no fears concerning the outcome of the match.

Good luck! :D

A good win nevertheless because you have to be either consistent or inspired to defeat Niculescu. I really hope her level improves in the next matches. Medina Garrigues will be quite a tough player in my opinion, she counters really well relying on her opponent's power so it makes her looking more than decent on grass. I want Agi to shorten points, going to the net could be something to try :).

Agi sucks. That is all there is to it. She is so predictable in her manner of blowing break points and getting her serve broken at critical junctures. Broken at 4-3 down in first set. Zheng then served it out. She was up 4-1 in the second with break points and choked, then blew 30-0 on serve and got broken, then had break points in next game and failed again. Then she was easily broken. Had 30-0 when Zheng was serving for match and lost 4 points in a row.

This year is a lost cause for Agi. I doubt she will start playing any better on hardcourts. Everything is a total struggle for her.

Iceland
Jun 30th, 2008, 01:04 PM
Agnes is not fulfilling expectations this year, that's true. Her last impressive run was in Paris but since then, she has been building consistent results which is already a satisfaction. Zheng is full of confidence after having taken out Ana & she is a tough cookie on grass whereas Agi is paying her lack of experience on this surface. As you say, I think we should more wait till next year to see flashing results from her, but all in all, a 4th round showing here is not bad at all, she will have her chances in other tournaments, she is still young. ;)

I wish I could have seen the match to be able to judge more of her level, I haven't watched her since ages.

You would have seen what you were expecting to see I think. It was obvious that Agi has the better serve, the better game and higher potentials, but she couldn't take advantage of it either by making UE-s or by choosing wrong shots at the wrong time. She hase given too many easy points to Zheng. I don't know if this is due to inexperience or lack of concentration, but clearly, this is where she needs to improve to become a better player.

Peterk07

Regarding expectations: Agi's coach, Zoltan Kucharszky said last year - in the middle of her big run - that he didn't expect big things from Agi in 2008. He said that their aim is to settle down inside the TOP20. I really would like to know the reason why he said that, but obviously he was right. Maybe there is something they have to work on, or change her game, or change her body/shape (if you look at her you notice that she changed a lot from last year). I don't know. What I'm really looking forward to see is if he was right about 2009, because he said, that 2009 will be Agi's true breakout season.

lynxy
Jun 30th, 2008, 08:56 PM
I really don't get it... when I turn my back everybody else sees a kind of flaky Agnes, when I saw a tennis terminator!
Okay, so maybe Garbin was better off eating the grass than playing on it... and made Agnes look good. But at least when Agnes had a clear plan in her head, she executed it with ruthless efficiency. When this young woman stops getting confused about her game plan, she is going to be a scary player.

This win made me too optimistic. Right after a very good performance, Agi plays like crap to lose to Pauline Parmentier 64 62. Given Pauline's record this year, I wouldn't say it is an acceptable loss. If we make the balance of all this, playing those Tier III ended up being embarrassing for her.
Agi, what's wrong with you? :sad:

I just hope now that she finishes this season high enough in the rankings to be able to take a better start next year. She still has time to improve but she will really need more than 2 weeks to work on her game/serve.

Agi won her first match against Wickmayer 75 76(2). :yeah: Very nice win, she came pretty close to losing the second set since Wickmayer was at 2pts from taking it.
The stats on serve doesn't look bad, she almost won 70% of pts after 1st serve. The first serve percentage is too close to 50% though which is definitely too low. Also quite a lot of BPs to face (8). It's overall a solid performance against a good and powerful player. We also have to consider that it is her first match on hard court since Miami.

I would really like Agi to wake up before she has to face her big points of the fall. She really must do well in Stockholm. Anything but a final would be highly disappointing.

God, it's not possible. :help:

Morita is totally out of form... Agnes' fall starts to scare me, she is still fighting but she loses it in the end. I never thought such thing could happen, she was so solid last year. But I'm sure that we are not wrong to hope about her. She is talented and she can have a great career. She has to find a good team that will give confidence in herself. I don't like these stupid comments about 'positive losses', this is not appropriate at all...
She needs also time to find her serve, her stats are terrible, she can't win more than 55% of the points after a first serve. Terrible, considering her abilities.

Get your head together Agi :o!!!! Hope Beijing will inspire her more than Tokyo...

No doubt about it, Agi is in a huge tailspin. :o

How could she think losing to Garbin, who she beats even when not playing that well (see Paris earlier this year) is a "positive defeat"?

And now this loss to...Morita. :confused: I could tell from the first game on point tracker that she was going down.

I've seen Agi say she doesn't read the press...she might need to soon, no matter how lousy it is, for a dose of truth. :help:

I guess this is what is known as "sophomore slump." If so, I sure hope her "junior" year on the WTA tour sees an improvement in her grades/results.

For her to be playing like this is a real waste.

I also like the fact that she is still defending her title, it would have been a shame to lose here in the first round.

Now that Agi went under (instead of over :lol:) 2008's last big hurdle -- Beijing -- all she can do is dust herself off and start building again.

I kind of wish she wasn't soldiering on to Stuttgart or anything else this season. It's clear her game currently isn't working.

Hopefully she can recuperate mentally and physically during the off-season. It's a matter of simplifying and finding her focus and dedication.

She has the talent to bounce back, and she can pick up a lot of points at the beginning of 2009. :)

This year has been a nightmare for Agnes. She's clearly MUCH better than her results this year suggest. Next year should see her get back on track. It would be nice though if she could beat Azarenka! :D

Iceland
Sep 30th, 2008, 02:17 PM
Agi didn't play a bad match but still lost 75 63 :sad:. She fell under pressure at each close game, after a great comeback from 35 down she failed to convert her GPs at 56 and lost the set. She got broken at 34 pretty easily.
Two things indicates a low confidence : no BPs saved (0/4) and only 29% of points won after a 2nd serve. Stats on first serve look pretty bright though (56%).

I would say this is encouraging but I'm not so sure about how well Azarenka plays indoors. In addition Agi's best result this season has come indoors in Paris, so who knows?, we might have positive elements in the coming weeks. The problem is that every tournament will have a big field, maybe she will have her chance in Luxembourg...

Agi has a chance to improve her ranking in 2009, since she didn't start 2008 very well.

Agi did have some strong moments in 2008 to build on. She won't have the pressure she did at the start of 2009. :)

I hope she can find her game again while away from the tour. She has sooooo much potential. She need only look at her old doubles partner Dinara, who in my mind, is no more naturally gifted than her.

Well Agnes has to play in Paris due to her sponsor, gaz de france-suez.
Pretty disappointing of a start for her, but Anne has been playing solid tennis lately. Let's wait a bit more before going pessimistic. On the other hand, we don't have anything to be positive about. I really hope a miracle happens for her in Mebourne...
