does anyone else think that she's playing like a top 20 player at the moment?

Her REAL ranking is what it is, which will most likely be around #32 next Monday! Doesn't matter how she's played the last few weeks, it's for the whole year. Amazing how people always seem to forget that when a player goes on a hot streak!

Well, even given her good performances/results she still got bagelled by Bartoli, completely outplayed by Sveta in the 3rd set today, blown off the court by Peer at the US Open and only beat Sharapova because the Russian hit 20 UEs in the 3rd set. Other players around her have had better "hot streaks" recently (think Maria Kirilenko), Agnieszka is still very up and down even over the last 6 weeks (first round loss to Azarenka in Luxembourg) and her ranking reflects that.

If she's playing like a top 20 player then she will be a top 20 player soon. Give it time. ;) The rankings are a bit behind in general.

I always felt she was overranked. :shrug:

Wimbledon 3R, USO 4R, Stockholm title, some 100k ITF title, Miami 4R...and she's almost top 30? Seems like the top 20 is stacked and it drops dramatically after that.

Her real ranking should be about 10 or 15 spots lower, but good on her for almost cracking the top 30, she should be a firm top 30 player next year.

See the rankings always catch up providing a player maintains their form. Right now Aga is playing like a top 12 player and the ranking will catch up with that within the next six months as well providing of course that Aga continues to play like a top 12 player.

Actually i was very dissapointed for her performance against Hantuchova, i certainly did not see her in the entire fortnight to make a sane statement, but she was just in very poor form against Daniela. Nothing on her groundstrokes, nothing in her strategy, but we´ll see she must have something to have beaten Maria and Svetlana in the last two grand slams.

Agi will always be a bit more vulnerable to players like Dani who like to move their opponents around quite a bit. I think Agi is playing like a top 10 player, but we'll have to see where she gets too before she has a mini peak (Nicole did at number 10, Agnes did at around 20th).

:scratch: Agi = Agnes Szavay. AGA = Radwanska, who this thread is about. :p

Well, I wasn't blown away either. But this was a good tourny for her nevertheless.

Anyway, my only concern about her she's a short girl without big serve. This is OK, but she doesn't seem to like clay surface either. This can be a problem, because if she has to rely on hardcourt, she'll have a tough job.

Aga played against 9 of current Top12 players (no matches against Jankovic, Chakvetadze, Serena) and beat 7 of them :eek: The only players she has never beaten are Henin and Ivanovic - no.1 and no. 2 in the world ;)

Shahar was #5 in the race for a long time in the beggining of last year and she finished at 17. you can never know what is going to happen I don't think that she should be top 20 at the moment but we'll see.

The question is what did she do after beating those seeds? Nothing but got crushed in the next round :tape:

Well, being crushed in a GS QF is not that bad. :) She seems to be a pretty good GS contender. 1xQF, 2x4r, 1x3r, 2x2r. Nice results for a rookie.

Well she has almoust no points to defend during clay season she has a good shot on getting much higher!!!

it was bad, considering that she had just taken out two high seeds in a row. Or at least she could put up a better fight.

Well, if we look this way, everyone in top30 is pretty good giant killer. :)

Her record agains TOP10 is 5:9, against TOP20 is 10:15. Not bad, but I wouldn't say she is a "giant killer". She deserves her 21st place on the rankings. (Szavay next to her, at nr. 20 has a positive record against top players, so Aga is in her place in this aspect.)

The way she got flattened by Danka, I'd say she's playing barely top 50 tennis.

Aga has a lot of talent. She's the only player, not named Justine Henin, who I make time to watch. She has great timing and instincts and she rises to the occasion, as can be seen from her Grand Slam results and her results against top players.

But... she's still a bit inconsistent. I think her ranking is fair, given that. I believe that she has the talent to get to the top 10 but I don't think she deserves to be there right now. She needs to prove herself and get herself some titles on the WTA tour.
