Terrible performance from aga in the first set...

Ana was annoying as hell in this match, especially in the third set shouting like a banshee and pumping her fist 10 times after winning any point.

Phew, boy that was exhausting.
Really important that Ana managed to close it out in the end. A mix of some great play of old-Ana with some abysmal misses. My favourite point was that BH slice passing winner. :drool:
Now good luck in the final against Bepa, please play like in the 1st set, cuz otherwise you don't stand much chance! :hug:
I'm gutted for Aga, so close from a big win and it would boost her confidence too. :( Have fun in Doha! :hug:

I like how Radwanska has improved her serve and is more aggressive with her groundstrokes. Her touch is also really nice. It's a shame she didn't get the final spot at the Yec. She deserved it more, if you ask me.

Excellent 1st set from Ana. She was aggressive and confident and looked awesome. Then the rest of the match was plain ugly. Her 1st serve percentage was only 50% for the match :eek: Bepa is going to have a field day if she plays like that tomorrow. But good to see Ana back in a final for the first time since RG. Hopefully she can pull it off

Surprisingly bad match with only few highlights. Good returns in the final stages produced by Ana.

I hope Vera beats this overreacting, in-your-face fist-pumping, one-dimensional spoiled brat tomorrow. She's so lucky to be beautiful, otherwise should have one tenth of the fans that she has today.

Aga, off to holiday and then some training with top 8:)

Doubt Radwanska will ever get a better chance to beat Ivanovic.

Not that it was much of a chance anyway considering Ivanovic controlled the whole thing, even serving poorly, and blowing very hot and cold off the ground.

Great match! Amazing points, but Ana could have reduced the no. of U.E. Both played great really, but Ana played better. It would have been unfair if Aga won. [My opinion, not asking you to judge my opinion]

The line judges and the umpire :armed:

Agata.
Oct 25th, 2008, 04:50 PM
Aga :sad: She could've won it
But even if she'd won her last service game, I'm pretty sure she'd lose the TB (bad record against the top players) :lol:
Nice played from her after a few bad tournaments, but I feel she could've played much better anyway, maybe next time ;)

The "good" thing about Aga losing is the fact that if she won she'd not propably win even 6 games against Vera, now it's not going to be her who meet Vera in the final :lol:

Maybe Ana should should tilt her fist more to the right and it would come off as 'inspiring', a fist pump is a fist pump :weirdo: and how does a fist pump come across as 'spoilt'? :tape:

I think Ana's coaches need to drum in "be aggressive permanently" because when she ruthlessly wins the first set, she eases off and nearly always ends up in a tense situation. The coaches need to help her utilise her power game more consistently.

She has always taken the worst possible pressure you can have in tennis and won the RG grand slam, so she shouldn't really feel pressure in these situations.

Well, as much as I like Vera, I think Agnieszka deserved it more. I know the slams aren't everything, but 2 consecutive 2nd round losses is pretty bad for a player that has qualified for the YEC, wheras Radwanska has been really solid at the slams this year.

:yeah: Exactly. Good rep for you. Don't try to make such a lot of fuss about players' on-court antics if it bothers you so much; just focus on the tennis. And actually...I love the fistpumps from players because if you can't see the ball in a stream, seeing the fistpump will tell you who won the point. :lol:

Well done Ana! :banana: I couldn't watch the match today but I was happily surprised that you managed to win despite playing poorly (mark of a champion :yeah:) and won a tight match again. :drool: Good luck against Bepa tomorrow; serve better!

Might be true but Vera played better when it mattered while Aga did not. Aga has won 3 titles this year and made 3 finals but nothing recently, her. Bepa made six finals (not counting Linz) and lost to Maria, Serena, Jelena only Daniilidou (W/O) one could really question.

I'd say not including the slams Bepa did well enough in my opinion.

Good win for Ana. :clap2: She had me worried toward the end. Fortunately she stepped it up in the last couple of games with some nice shots off of her beautiful forehand and attacking the second serve.

Aga put in a good effort today. She really gave Ana a lot of trouble with her nice shotmaking. If she can do something about her second serve, then she will have a better chance against the elite players like Ana.
