I went to the officla website to find some info but her name isn't there. Is it possible she has surprised everyone and the WTA still haven't heard of her?:lol:

No.It's not that.There's a list of tennis players where Agnes is not mentioned.And whenever there's an article where her name is mentioned they don't link her name like they do with every other tennis player's.

Hantuchova had said she never heard of the girl before :tape: She is top 40 and Dani had never heard of her :o Do most players have no clue about up and coming players?

Reminds me of what Mauresmo said about Safarova before their match at the AO, we all know how that ended. :tape:

That's interesting given the fact that Agnes won junior Grand Slams a couple of times..
But maybe they just don't care about up and coming players until they meet them on court..

How can Mauresmo not have heard of Safarova before the Australian this year?

She was a Top30 player and had won 3 WTA tour titles.

Szavay has her own profile on the website too - was looking at it earlier.

I don't understand how the WTA doesn't pay attention to its up and coming players. If they followed the players at all, they would have known she had talent and was likely to breakthrough this year.

From what I read (maybe you have other quotes), Hantuchova didn't say she hadn't heard of her before, she said she hadn't seen her play before. She might have never heard of her before either, but that's not what she said...

Its prob cos shes risen so much so quickly. She'll have her own space soon enough.

If that's true, it's to a player's own detriment to overlook the rising stars, as Momo-Safarova may have been a case in point.

You know sometimes if you don't follow the whole top 100 (rather than only top 20) for a month you find yourself in a state of shock at what has happened and her ranking really jumped in the last months so i can accept her answer. I'm pretty sure she doesn't check the ranking all the time...

Well, but Momo seemed rather ignorant, cause safarova was hanging around the top 50-100 for some time and even top 30 the year before...

In a couple of months when momo slips even more, we'll be like Amelie who?

No, she also said she had never even seen the girl before :tape: They said it on ESPN during their match.

Well Agnes has gone from outside the top 200 to top 40 in a few months. It takes some time for big corporate websites to adjust to sudden changes like that.

Agi can't be unknown by the WTA - she did a blog for the WTA site from Bad Gastein! :p

It's really unprofessional actually, especially when you have a bye in the first round, you're not even going to pop in for a set to have a look? Over-confidence or abject apathy.
