Poor Aga, could have barely moved at all...take some rest girl, take vacation and forget about tennis for a while

Petra, good job!! She is very crafty, I like her, the movement is her liability, but she is fun to watch!

Petra played a very good match. She deserved this win.

But Asian marathon took it's toll on Agnieszka. I'm glad it's not very important loss :)
Rest for Moscow Aga :)

Some fantastic ball striking from Kvitova. Her game is at its best indoors. Win the title.

Agnieszka :hug:... I even did not have the heart to encourage her to win. It was too many matches in the last two weeks. I am happy about the signs of return of her form. This was not a good season for Agnieszka, but one she had to go through.
Petra congrats :yeah:

That was really good ballstriking from Kvitova, especially from mid-first set to mid-second set. It all started to fall apart at the end but luckily closed it out in style with a FH winner. Hard to find a weakness in her strokes and a player like Radwanska with little to no power or direction in her shots, Kvitova is able to stand her ground and just wail on the ball until the intended result is achieved. Showed some craftiness as well with slices and drop shots. Overall a good performance from Kvitova as she moves into her second ever WTA final...hopefully that Wickmayer doesn't show up again.

This is why Radwanska will never be a Slam winner. She just doesn't have the goods.

Congratulations Petra, some amazing shots there :)
Agnieszka has earned herself a welcome breather before Moscow. Just as well, she's got a score to settle in the first round :devil: :cool: :kiss:

In the 8th game of the 2nd set, Kvitova was leading 40-0 but Radwanska scored the next 4 points. The game went to 8 deuces before Kvitova finally won.

Perhaps the most important play of the match took place in game 3 set 2. Kvitova was leading 2-0 and serving at Advantage. Up until this point in the match, Kvitova was scoring all her points on power, but in this 20 shot rally Kvitova allowed Radwanska to beat hereself on this point, which gave Kvitova an insurmountable lead of 3-0 in the 2nd set. Kvitova would then come back from a 0-30 deficit in game 7 to take a 5-2 lead. This was clearly not Radwanska's day.

Aga :hug:
She was very tired, much slower than she usually is and making lots of UEs
Seems like the match against Safarova took her last sources of energy left after the 3-weeks of constant playing

Congrats Petra, very well played

No, this match simply shows that Agnieszka is tired after a lot of tennis, nothing more.

She does not have the physical build, strength, or weight of shot needed to win seven matches in a row in modern times. She will still have a great career, Top5 definitely as she is probably the smartest girl out there, but she does not have a GS-winning game. Not just shown by this match. By saying that, I meant how she is so easily overpowered even by C-list power players.

Well, she's less than 100 pts away from Jelena and Vera and will be ahead of Flavia next week no matter what happens with the Italian.

If Flavia wins the Title, there will be less than 150 pts separating the #8 from #11.

Great performance by Kvitova. She seems to play so much better once she gets her teeth into a tournament. I know if I was her opponent I would always rather face her in the 1st round rather than in the semifinals. Once she is grooved and feeling confident in her strokes she is one very dangerous opponent. Today she did a nice good most of the time choosing the right shot to unload on and when unloading most of the time doing so with a good margin for error.

Wasn't great from Aga, she really did look out of gas out there and I think she made as many and perhaps more errors than Petra. And Aga will never defeat Kvitova in a match in which she matches or exceeds Kvitova in the error count.

I think this defeat probably substanitially reduces her chances at the qualify for Dubai. But frankly, even if Aga was to do enough in Moscow to get to Dubai I would be very surprised if she wasn't a spent force by the time she got there.

I don't normally rise to the bait on this forum, but... if you are seriously judging Agnieszka's overall game on the basis of today's performance, you are deluding yourself. She's been playing for almost three weeks almost without a break, beating some pretty good opponents in the process and providing us fans (and some non-fans) with some pretty good entertainment. Why does her slam-worthiness matter to you anyway, do you care? Maybe she will win a slam and maybe she will not - time will tell. ;)

I perhaps take the bait more often than gaja and I will here. I don't mind when some posters make predictions like that, they just do it to tease others, but then some others like iPatty who often display great deal of objectivity should not do it. There is no way to know if someone will or will not ever win a slam. All we can say that here are objective strenghts that will help win and weaknesses that will prevent winning. The beauty of tennis is that so many players were able to overcome their weaknesses by either eliminating them or neutralizing by some other strengths. We are all here to see that. So predictive statements like this one mean nothing :shrug:

She was broken 6-7 times today?

That goes to show what a shit player Safarova really is. Just serve/play with angles and slice to her backhand all the time and she´ll do absolutely nothing.

Theoretically it is still very possible Aga could make in to Dubai. All she has to do is simply go substantially further in the draw than Zvonereva and Jankovic in Moscow. But in practice I think realistically this is not a highly likely prospect.

It seems I need to clarify. My post was not intended to bash Radwanska or poke fun at her fans or whatever else I have been accused of doing in this thread. I do not judge players based on whether or not they will win Slams, otherwise my entire signature would be wiped out. I was simply stating that, today's match adding to my opinion, it will be very difficult for Radwanska to win Slams. The style of tennis she plays has not won majors since Hingis and that was a while ago. This by no means makes her less of a player in my eyes, contrary to that she is probably my second favorite player in the top ten right now. I was merely saying that I don't believe she has the game to win slams, and so, based on that opinion, she will not win a Slam. My word is obviously not definite. I never thought Safina had the game to win Slams and now look at her, look how close she is. I don't mind being wrong, and if Radwanska won a Slam it wouldn't displease me in any way.

Thank you for the explanation... as usual it makes a lot of sense. Just so you know I did not think you were bashing Agnieszka; I was just merely saying that a statements "player X will never win a slam" and "player X will certainly win a slam" don't make sense. In fact this uncertainty and the ability of some to beat the odds make the game (or other sport) beautiful and interesting beyond stats, technic, etc.

Kvitova is talented. She needs to get in better shape, obviously. But there's no reason she can't get to Top 20 in the world.

Aga has to win.
Vera has to lose before the semis.
JJ has to lose before the final.

All down to Moscow!

Kvitova is a dangerous player for anyone ask Safina,she is so carefree on court thats one of her best attributes.She is never nervous she goes about her tennis with verve,she is underrated but she is a very crafty player.

Kvitova easily beats Radwanska 6-3,6-2

Good.

Without a serve, Ratwanska was a sitting duck.

Kvitova played poorly for the most. Too many wild errors, the overwhelming majority of the points she won were 1-2. Her rally shots are crap - she has to work on that and hit them with more authority. She's completely unable to win a point unless she is dictating it from the start. Top notch serving though, even better than in the QF. Occasionally spectacular of course, but I readily admit that this kind of game isn't for everyone.
