Aga is doing so well in Beijing. :worship: She entered some more tournaments this year. Together with Ula they will play Linz. Here is the main draw:

Flavia Pennetta ITA [1] vs Meghann Shaughnessy USA
Roberta Vinci ITA vs Anna-Lena Groenefeld GER
Lucie Hradecka CZE vs Raluca Ioana Olaru ROU
Q vs Sorana Cirstea ROU [6]

Yanina Wickmayer BEL [3/WC] vs Timea Bacsinszky SUI
Sybille Bammer AUT vs Alexandra Dulgheru ROU
Tatjana Malek GER vs Q
Arantxa Parra Santonja ESP vs Sara Errani ITA [8]

Iveta Benesova CZE [5] vs Q
Petra Kvitova CZE vs Andrea Petkovic GER
Olga Govortsova BLR vs Q
Katarina Srebotnik SLO vs Carla Suarez Navarro ESP [4]

Lucie Safarova CZE [7] vs Patricia Mayr AUT [WC]
Urszula Radwanska POL vs Yvonne Meusburger AUT [WC]
Kristina Barrois GER vs Alize Cornet FRA
Monica Niculescu ROU vs Agnieszka Radwanska POL [2]

First tricky opponent is Lucie Safarova - Aga has never beaten her before. But maybe Ula will give her sis a present and kick out Lucie earlier. ;)

Afterwards Moscow for Aga and Luxembourg for Ula. Younger Radwanska didn't enter big 100k ITFs in Ortisei and Poitiers so the only way to extend her season is to win Luxembourg. (Linz is reserved for Agnieszka :devil:)

She may need to if she wants to play in Doha. A strong showing here in Linz would almost guarantee her the 8th spot in the WTA Race.

Agnieszka doesn't play doubles in Linz which is obvious (she even said she won't do this anymore this year). But look at Ula's first round:

Kondratieva/U Radwanska vs. Jans/Rosolska [2]

:spit: :lol:

And what a partner for her? Nobody better wanted to play with her? :weirdo:

And btw. Ula plays Meusburger tomorrow at 5 PM (CET) obviously on the Centre Court. :D Hopefully a stream ;)

Seems like Aga will play in Linz and have her 1st round match postponed to wednesday.

Die Weltranglisten-Elfte wird am Montag um 22.25 Uhr in Linz eintreffen und hat bei Turnierdirektorin Sandra Reichel um einen Mittwoch-Start angesucht. „Wir werden diesem Wunsch natürlich nachkommen, wobei Agnieszka wegen des Jetlags gebeten hat, ihr Match nicht allzu spät anzusetzen“, sagte Reichel.

Translation:
The number 11 in the world ranking will arrive in Linz on Monday at about 22:25 and has asked the tournament director Sandra Reichel for a wednesday start. "We will agree for this request, of course, Agnieszka has also asked for her match not being scheduled too late because of the jetlag", said Reichel.

It might seem glamorous, but it isn’t easy to play in Beijing one week and Linz the next. Especially if you have played the Beijing final on a fast outdoor court and you have to switch to a slow court indoors. That was the challenge facing second seed Agnieszka Radwanska at the Generali Ladies on Wednesday, and she would be the first to admit that she didn’t play the greatest of matches. But she did enough to defeat Romania’s Monica Niculescu 6-4 6-2.

It was a bit messy, especially in the first set with the seven breaks of serve. The second set started off the same way with breaks in the first two games. Radwanska also had to fight off two break points before she managed to hold for 2-1, but then the Pole finally managed to assert herself and take control. A backhand winner down the line gave her a break for 4-2, and a further break at 5-2 gave her the match.

´Actually she’s uncomfortable to play, especially here where it’s slow and you can’t finish the ball that quick,´ said Radwanska. ´In the first set it was a little bit tight and was so close. In the second set I was feeling much better. It was tough because I’ve only practised once here, and this is indoors and the surface is so slow so you have to run three times more than in Asia. I’m just happy that I won in two sets and it was not that long because I’m a little bit tired after two busy weeks.´

She will now play Alize Cornet, who back in February was ranked 11 in the world. That was then. Now she is ranked 48 after an unexpected and extraordinary slump in form.

Aga achieved in Linz more than I expected. Šafářová was the toughest opponent so far, but still a very beatable one, which was seen in Ula's match. Thankfully Aga played her best match in the tournament, but in TB she looked to be on her last legs. She has a chance tol beat Kvitová, but Pennetta possibly will be too much.

About YEC. In these circumstances forget about it.

You haven't seen Pennetta play yesterday. She was clueless during the match with Olaru. :tape: If Olaru had commited less errors, she would have a shot to win - so I think that it will be Wickmayer in the final.

Yes, Pennetta has meltdowns from time to time, but doesn't matter if it's her or Wickmayer. I'd be Aga's 15th match in 3 weeks. The collapse is close. :unsure:

So - first of all. Aga looked tired as hell. She barely moved. She shouldn't go to Moscow now - would be even good for her ranking. ;) After Linz semifinal she has 3720. So 3720-250(Linz 2008)-370(Doha 2008)=3100(which means she'll be ranked 12 or 13 so she won't have any schedule commitments next year ;))

I'm wondering if Agnieszka applied for a WC to Bali, playing there could be good as she'd have a week of break before this tournament and she said herself that she wanted to play there (not that I don't want her to play in YEC, but even if she somehow manages to qualify in Moscow, then I can't see her having enough of energy to achieve sth particular there).

Ofc playing in Bali would only make sense if Agnieszka feels helself that she has some energy left this season and will be able to recover enough in one week (which may be doubtful).

Correct me if I am wrong... how can she apply for a wildcard in Bali? She has not won a title this year.

And that's exactly why she would need a WC to play there :). If she had won an International title, she would have been in directly, without a WC. 10 highest ranked players who have won an International title and haven't qualified to YEC + 2 WCs will play in Bali.

Oct 17th, 2009, 04:16 PM

Aga is still 10th in the YEC race with 3340 points after this week's play. Assuming Aga doesn't play Moscow, Pennetta needs to make the final in Moscow to pass her, Bartoli needs to make the final of Bali to pass her, and Stosur needs to win in Osaka and make the final of Bali to pass her.

And I have to say Kvitova played very well.
Aga`s mind wanted to win but her body didn`t allow her to.:sad:
Too much tennis in these last weeks.:(

I think that, obviously, she shouldn't play more than what her mind and body allow her to play and, therefore, if she doesn't feel prepared to play in Moscow, she shouldn't. But still, as I said, I'm hoping that she will. And I say that because I would prefer to see her holding her spot inside the top-10, so that she could start next season as she started this one . This was a tough year, an "adaptation" one, but she managed to regain her top-10 spot and all the experience that she absorbed would be (and will surely be) quite useful. I don't mean to say that ending the year ranked #12 or #13 (and avoiding the schedule restrictions) would be making "a step back", but I can't help but looking at the possibility of playing these "smaller" tournaments as some sort of "moral hazard" generator (specially for a player whom already played a whole year commited to a top-10 schedule)... I think she needs to drag this "year-end mood" to the next year, getting used to play in the big tournaments, with the "hard schedule" and with the same "sense of urgency" that she has been showing so far! But it's just an opinion! :yeah:

Race Ranking shows how many points aga will have at the end of the season, now when there is no compulsory tournaments it means that even if aga won't play moscow, doha or bali she will have at least 3340 points and the only player who can overtake her seems to be Flavia who has only 190 pts less, so it is very likely that she will finish this season in top10 ;)

No, MartinUla is right. Unfortunately race ranking only counts to qualify for Doha... to 'finish this season in top10' Agnieszka would have to defend her 370 points from last year's YEC (and she can only do that if she goes there, and actually plays, even as an alternate) and also somehow compensate for last year's 250 semi-final points from Linz, which will be taken off on the 20th of Oct - the tournament is played earlier this year and is not worth as many points. That's 620 points, quite a lot. For last year's Linz Pennetta will have 140 taken off while Bartoli 250, like Aga she got to the semis. But neither Pennetta nor Bartoli have Doha points to defend, so they might overtake Agnieszka in the rankings at the end of the year.
Actually, quite a lot depends on Moscow.

haha unfortunately(or fortunately whatever)you are mistaken :) since Race rank works completely the same as the entry rank, the only difference is that there are not counted the tournaments that has to be played(Luxembourg, Moscow, Doha, Bali), therefore to finish the year being top10 aga only has to defend her 190 points ahead Flavia which she has at the moment - so it seems that if marion and flavia won't play doha or bali Aga will be top10:)

Look i only try to say that if the season would end at the moment and none of flavia, aga, marion would play YEC or Bali, aga would be 10th with 3340pts. and yes everything depends on moscow if flavia won't be in the final she will not overtake aga in rank ;)

But then Aga played stronger and stronger.;)

3rd set was painful to watch because of Azarenka`s cramps.
Feel sorry for her.

I really enjoyed watching the great tennis in sets 1 and 2.

Caroline`s dancing after 2nd set was cute!:lol:

Another dramatic match at YEC.

Loved the outfits of Aga and Vika.:drool:

Nice hug at the net.:awww:

Good way to finish the year with a win at YEC for Aga.:cool:
To make it to YEC again -like 2008- is really impressive.
