What does Ula's ranking need to be to play doubles with Aga at the olympics?

Do Jans/Rosolska have a shot at playing doubles?

Pszczelny
Jun 9th, 2008, 06:16 PM
doubles qualifying is not clear at the moment

but there's no chance for Ula: her doubles rank is 172, even with Aga's singles rank, it won't be enough
Aga most probably will play doubles with Marta Domachowska, who has singles qualification, unles there'll be some strange pairing with Jans or Rosolska

ITF begins Olympic entry process

The entry process for the 2008 Olympic Tennis Event in Beijing begins this week, with the ITF notifying National Associations and National Olympic Committees (NOCs) of the players eligible for direct acceptance into the singles and doubles (top 10 only) events and sending out application forms for ITF places.

Fifty-six players will qualify as direct acceptances into both the men’s and women’s singles events. Six ITF Places will be allocated by the ITF Olympic Committee, while the two Tripartite Commission Invitation Places have already been announced.

National Associations/NOCs have until 23 June to confirm the entry of players eligible for direct acceptance and to return the application form for ITF places. At the same time, National Associations/NOCs will nominate doubles teams for the Olympic Tennis Event. The ITF will announce the full list of entries on 2 July.

Aga has a wrist injury, some joint inflammation, but father says it's not dangerous.

Does anyone know when Aga has the olympic pledge? Tennis players are scheduled on Friday, but Aga won't be able to be in Warsaw then (well, probably no tennis player will be there :lol:). Yesterday was the main olympic pledge, but there would by any news, if Aga was there. :confused:

Maybe she will have it already in Beijing. :shrug: Any thoughts?

Aga and her dad are complaining about the weather in Beijing. She says that it's very hot and the smog is really heavy. She was training at 11.30 am and they had to use electric light.

Today Aga was training with Shuai Peng and Radwanski says that her hand is much better but again he says the weather is really awful and it's killing them.

I never care about draws, doesn't matter if it's strong or weak. Aga just must play well and then we'll see. ;) But this time I wished she had an easy draw. Does she have it now? No, but obviously could be worse.

Aga must be careful against Chan, then some fight with Schiavone (if Amanmuradowa, then it should be much easier) and a tricky third round.
But if Aga plays her BEST, she can be at least in semifinal. So dawaj Aga, focus first on Chan. :cool:

In doubles no need to check what's after first round. Bondarienkos are beatable, but it will be very tough, and if Marta/Aga win, everything is possible then. :lol:

i think it's awesome, my only worry is her shoulder ;)

i mean Chan - aga never had problems with girls who play like that
Fran - being in a mediocre form, i think aga will have extra motivation to avenge the 2 losses :)
Vera - completely out of form, losing everything atm, i wont be surprised if she doesnt reach R16

No, not hard, but neither easy. I can imagine easier round 2 and 3. We all can agree that everything depends on Aga (form, health, day's performance) till quarterfinal or even semifinal. :angel:

I agree in everything you said. The only problem for Aga will be her health/form, not the oponents. The most important thing is that she won't play Serena before the semifinal! And if somehow Elena will beat Serena (yeah right) than Aga can even play for gold :bounce:

W tej konkurencji czuliśmy się faworytami :) Niestety, wszystkie stoły były zajęte i zagraliśmy w "cymbergraja". Wstyd mi się przyznać, ale... przegrałem aż 8 golami... z Agnieszką!!!

I'm seriously worried about how she will cope with her injury and weather conditions. She lately said that her hand still hurts.
The sad news is that she will probably skip the opening ceremony. So we won't have a chance to see her marching with the rest of Polish athletes. Of course considering her preparations for the match it's a good news :)

Serena and especially Venus will have to jump over their own hoops before they face Agnieszka. I agree that our favorite will have to show new quality to go that far, too. I believe she is capable of doing it; Agnieszka is steadily improving. It may or may not be her time, I keep my fingers crossed (and thumbs squeezed) that it is. I am more worried as olivero about her arm and the fact if she will be acclimated. As Malva stated every match will be tough, starting with the first one where her opponent will be playing in front of her own crowd in conditions she grew up in. I am rooting for Agnieszka all the way :devil:

Chan is representing Taiwan. The Communist China has been in the past, and is continuing today, bitterly opposing it and bully it anywhere it can.

I am curious how the public will be reacting. I can't hardly believe their reaction is going to be spontaneous. In terms of personal freedom, the Beijing regime is still one of the hardest in the world.

You may be right, but look how us, Poles were happy with wins of Wozniak, Wozniacki or other players of Polish origin. So I am not sure how to look at it. Communist regime is one thing, people often entirely different.

For obvious reasons I hate this draw. :( But both of my girls are struggling with the injuries, so I'll be happy to see them both advancing to the QF and then may the better get to the medal stage. I'm sure these are not the last Olympics of Aga & Ana.
Anyway, I probably won't be following much of Olympics next week as I'll be abroad. :sad:Most of mainlanders hates Chan,so:drool:That's pretty sad.
And I don't see how it might have a positive effect on Aga from our point of view. I mean if I were Chan I'd do EVERYTHING possibly to piss of haters and be as successful in the dragon's den as possible.

Radwańska i Domachowska: za włosy się nie ciągniemy

Inne dyscypliny - Pekin 2008 - Tenis ziemny (http://www.sports.pl/artykuly/index.asp?Kategoria=Inne dyscypliny - Pekin 2008 - Tenis ziemny)

07.08.2008 | 21:23

Agnieszka Radwańska i Marta Domachowska na korcie są przeciwieństwem, ale w deblu tworzą zgraną parę. "Za włosy ciągnąć się nie będziemy" - powiedziały niemal równocześnie obie tenisistki i wybuchły śmiechem, zapytane jak zareagują na ewentualne błędy w turnieju olimpijskim w Pekinie.


"Mamy zupełnie inne style gry, ale to fajnie. Dzięki temu uzupełniamy się. Na niepowodzenia swoje, czy koleżanki reagujemy raczej spokojnie" - zapewniła notowana na 54. miejscu rankingu WTA Domachowska.

Los nie był dla nich specjalnie łaskawy, szczególnie w deblu. Zmierzą się bowiem z rozstawionymi z numerem szóstym ukraińskimi siostrami Aloną i Kateryną Bondarenko. W singlu Radwańska spotka się z Yung-Jan Chan z Tajwanu, a Domachowska z Bułgarką Cwetaną Pironkową.

"Losowanie było generalnie dobre. Yung-Jan Chan znam jeszcze z czasów juniorskich - jesteśmy w tym samym wieku. Jest świetną deblistką, ale dobrze gra również w singlu. W deblu mieliśmy z Martą trochę pecha" - oceniła w rozmowie z PAP dziewiąta w światowym rankingu Radwańska.

"W warunkach panujących w Pekinie gra się bardzo ciężko i to będzie przede wszystkim walka samej z sobą, a dopiero później z rywalką. Na szczęście organizmy powoli się przyzwyczajają, choć dwa pierwsze dni były bardzo trudne" - dodała.

Obok upału Radwańska zmaga się również z kontuzją -zapaleniem śródręcza.

"Mecz to nie trening, więc nie wiem jak zachowa się ręka. Cały czas przyjmuję leki, mam zabiegi, zastrzyki. Opieka medyczna w misji jest świetna - pewnie mogłabym skorzystać z wynalazków, jakie przywieźli na przykład pływacy, ale nie chcę ryzykować - nie wiem jak by to mogło na mnie zadziałać" -wyjaśniła.

Tenisistkom bardzo podoba się życie w wiosce olimpijskiej, które przebiega w spokojnym tempie. Gdy wspólnie szły na obiad, obiecywały wrócić w ciągu pół godziny. Zajęło im to niemal dwa razy dłużej. "Widziałem, że ze stołówki skorzystali również debliści Mariusz Fyrstenberg i Marcin Matkowski. Na pewno się zagadali" - wyjaśnił ojciec Agnieszki, a zarazem jej trener Robert Radwański. I rzeczywiście niedługo cała czwórka w doskonałych humorach była z powrotem.

Obie tenisistki podkreślają jak dużą radość sprawia im możliwość występowania w narodowych barwach - coś co jest zabronione na profesjonalnych kortach tenisowych.

"Co prawda w turnieju zagramy w naszych codziennych strojach, ale w wiosce chętnie pokazujemy się w ubraniach przygotowanych przez PKOl. Dla podkreślenia przynależności do polskiej drużyny obie pomalowałyśmy sobie paznokcie na biało-czerwono" - wyjaśniła Radwańska, po czym zawodniczki zaprezentowały efekty swojej pracy.

"Spotykamy sportowców z całego świata, widzimy inne twarze, inne miejsca niż na co dzień. To coś zupełnie innego niż turnieje zawodowe. Póki jesteśmy w wiosce czujemy się wyjątkowo. Kiedy jednak wsiadamy do autobusu i jedziemy na trening - wraca tenisowa rzeczywistość" - dodała po chwili Domachowska.

Najlepsze polskie zawodniczki ćwiczą wspólnie, choć obie skupiają się raczej na singlu.

"Trenujemy tak samo jak zwykle, choć tym razem mamy siebie za partnerki. Na pewno zagramy też treningowo debla, ale to raczej sporadycznie. Nie mamy dużego problemu ze zgraniem się, więc to nie powinno przeszkadzać" - powiedziała Domachowska.

Ranga olimpijskiego turnieju tenisowego rośnie - czołowi zawodnicy zapowiadają walkę o medale. Nie wykluczone, że pomogła w tym decyzja o zaliczeniu zawodów do punktowego rankingu ATP i WTA.

"Nie wiem czemu do tej pory nie przykładali do medali większej wagi. Dla mnie to coś wyjątkowego - podkreśliła Domachowska. - Najważniejszy pozostaje jednak wielki szlem, ale te zawody, to taki piąty turniej wielkoszlemowy" - dodała Radwańska.

Tenisistki nie miały specjalnie czasu na aklimatyzację w Pekinie - przyleciały do Chin bezpośrednio z imprez rozgrywanych w bardzo oddalonych częściach globu. Nie spędza im to jednak snu z powiek, bowiem zahartowały je częste podróże, zmiany klimatu oraz stref czasowych.

"Jest nam zdecydowanie łatwiej, w porównaniu do koleżanek i kolegów z innych dyscyplin. Mimo to nas też dotyka panująca w Pekinie duchota. Nie grałyśmy wcześniej w takich warunkach. Szczególnie ciężko się oddycha, ale z treningu na trening jest lepiej" - zapewniła Domachowska.

"W Pekinie marzy nam się jak najlepszy występ. Może uda się sztuka, którą zapowiadają siostry Venus i Serena Williams - złoto i srebro w singlu oraz złoto w deblu" - z rozmarzeniem uśmiechnęły się zawodniczki, które prosto z Pekinu pojadą na kolejny wielki turniej - do Nowego Jorku na wielkoszlemowy US Open.

Poles may have a different mentality from most other nations. Perpetually persecuted and oppressed by aggressive neighbors, scattered throughout the world by numerous misfortunes, and last but not least, distrustful of their Communist government for much of the 50 years of their rule, which many considered to be nothing but vassals of Moscow, it is easy to understand why they could hold dissident feelings.

I can assure you that in other countries I know, and some quite well, this is not the case. I trust you have read the next post after yours.

There's still Schnyder, Zvonareva, Peer... Let her win her first matches first. Then - let's think about quarterfinals, semifinals. Withdrawing from doubles could be a good strategy. She's not Serena or Venus. She won't make both singles and doubles with her injury.

no injury = SF :drool: ;)

I don't get it, do the two losing semi-finalists have to play each other for the bronze medal?

To all of our Polish fans: be prepared to record whatever Polish TV is going to show of Agnieszka's matches.

Spx.

Yeah, I think there are cameras only on the centre court, court 1 and court 2. We'll see...

and court 3,4,5,6... TVP have 1000 cameras there ;)

optimism >>>> reasonThere's Schiavone as well. Aga has never beaten her. I don't believe Peer will get that far, but Aga hasn't beaten Bepa nor Patty before so the SFs are far from being a gimme... Aga has to be at her best. And I repeat Chan is no pushover either.

"Tajwanka w drugim secie gra jak w transie, nagle wszystko zaczęło jej wychodzić - returny w linię, loby... w dodatku Agnieszka się myli. Być może już po prostu odpuściła drugiego seta i myśli o trzecim. Generalnie zacząłem się niepokoić."

Taka typowa Radwańska - kiedy jest pod ścianą, walczy do końca. Wygrała kilka ważnych piłek i zrobił się remis 5:5. Mecz się zrobił wyrównany. Rywalka to dobra deblista, więc dobrze gra przy siatce - smecze, woleje. Ale mogą przerwać mecz, bo zaczyna kropić.
