Since Andrea Temesvari left the game, Hungary has produced quite a few good players that have made it to the top 100 and 50. But none of them seemed to have the stuff that Agnes Szavay has to actually be a dangerous threat to the top players week end and out.

I love this girls attitude and I am concerned about her being injured already when she seems to just be getting started with great results.

But is this girl ready for the big time and will she finally put Hungary on the tennis map again?

She has certainly improved - her climb up from in the rankings this year definitley show it.

I think she definitley has what it takes to be a Top20 player. She'll improve all the time as she plays the top players more and more.

:yeah: - definitley the most improved player of the season.

Her forehand is a major weakness.

Sure she is! Always great to see a young player come out of nowhere, especially in the Women’s game. It doesn’t happen often anymore with age restrictions etc.

Bring on r32 Vs Petrova US Open 2007! ;)

Hold your horses. Back that thang up. One step at a time. Don't make her Ivanovic II yet. Don't get it twisted. Szavay has Top 20 pote but let's not get ahead of ourselves, buddy.

:cool:

It's not that bad.

She still hits a fair amount of winners with it.

Agnes needs some time to become more consistent, but she has a huge potential. I think it's out of question. Her body doesn't let her play a 2-3 weeks in a row, either. She has plenty of huge weapons, but there is a room for tactical improvement. Her forehand isn't that bad, but she cannot always keep the pace, and makes mistake. So be patient, she can break into Top 10 by time. I think she can beat every girl on tour.

Yes, definitely. She has only just scratched the surface. I just hope the back is good for the Open.

No worse than Petrova's, and she was top 3.

Do you think Agnes will recover in time for the Open?

If she does, she has a draw that could allow a major spree.

Personally I love her. :hearts: Along with Safarova :hearts: she's my fave of the young players who haven't fully crossed over. And when she and Lucie do, they'll be among my favorite top players. In both cases, their games aren't cookie cutter, and they are fun to watch play.

Curious though whether people think she's burned herself out before the Open, or if she still has it in her to take other players down.

What do you all think? :scratch:

She's showing strong signs of being able to play with the big girls. The fact that she was crying after retiring in NH shows that she believes she can win those types of matches. The (chronic?) back injury is a huge issue though...as another poster said, could end up struggling just to stay healthy like Tati. But as far as her game and mentality go, I think she could be in the top 20-25 in no time.

I think it depends on how bad her injury is, and am not totally convinced she's burt out with too many matches though. I really hope she's OK with the injury and wouldn't want her to get hurt again, but this is the US Open.

Agnes Szavay has had many great wins in recent weeks and is capable of doing well here in such form, she deserves too as well. Good luck to her...

I think she is, her ranking has improved so much.
At the start of the year, I watched her play Antwerp quallies on a small empty court against Schruff. Now look at her ranking :eek:

Her second serve motion looks so painful, it's no wonder she got back problems.

I'm not sure whether anyone has yet mentioned this, but Hungary has a claim to The Great Monica Seles.

The Seles family were ethnic Hungarians who moved to Serbia.

Monika was granted Hungarian citizenship this year:-) So she is offically Hunagrian, too :)

They didn't move anywhere. The town where they lived moved to Serbia.

I like her and her game, but if she's having back problems after a few weeks of sustained tennis that worries me a bit. how will it hold up when she plays tournaments more often?

she has a good game and realy imporved + she realy wants to win, when she is on the court she always give her best no matter what and believe in her chance, she stays concentrated...I realy think she has the talent to be in the top 20 and maybe one day the top 10!
she deserves it

Guess what!Martina Hingis has a hungarian heritage(her father maybe)too.Slovakia belonged to Hungary before Trianon("thank you" France!)And big chulk of Yugoslavia,Romania,Ukraine,Hrvatska,even Austria.That's why so many hungarians live outside of the mother country.The likes of Seles,etc.

With her back issues, I really don't see her making a run at the Open this year. A second-round loss to Krajicek seems possible, but I definitely think Szavay has a lot of potential.

She will be a top player (assuming her body holds up).

And her forehand is far from a "major weakness." Try watching her matches before spewing bullshit like that. It's not as powerful as her backhand, but she hits it with great angle and deep in the court. Her serve is actually weaker than her forehand in my opinion.
