My chances at Roland Garros? My aim is quarterfinal. But you must remember that Kim Clijsters, Justine Henin and Maria Sharapova are lower seeded than me. So you should be lucky to avoid them in a draw. It would be good as well not to have Francesca Schiavone in my quarter.

Looming Francy :unsure:
:worship: Agnieszka's quotes are GOAT sometimes :spit: I guess Aga had no idea that Kim had already withdrawn :p

I'm sure Cornet is thinking the same thing ;)

I'd be shocked if Cornet makes it out of the 1st round :spit:

Unfortunately, Radwanscrub will not draw Fran.
Schiavone is the 16th seed with Kim's withdrawal, so she'll be drawn to play 1-4.

Can't believe she has her own quarter.

An interesting precedent moving this to the player's forum. I can see a number of threads in general messages that could also be moved to player's forums :eek: :lol:

Wow when Bartoli says something it's still in GM. When Aga does - it is quickly moved to her forum :lol:

Besides, I think that thread title is too much... Maybe "turn the tables on clay or sth", I don't think any of us believe she can "conquer Paris"... ;)

You can't be serious :tape:

She can reach the QF for the 1st time if she plays well.
She got the worst of 9-16 seeds in her section. She beat Ana twice this season, Vera is playing bad, Kleybanova is pretty useless on clay. What is your problem here?

Ana, Safina, Vera can't be considered easy opponents at RG, even if they're not in their best form. Plus she has a tricky 2nd round. I just hope she'll defend her 4th round points, its doable.

I like the draw - no "looming" Peer, Martinez Sanchez, Stosur, Safarova, Rezai in Aga's part of quarter. :p

Another eeeasy draw for Aga.. and when it is easy she makes it difficult. I hope she will do her best, and use this draw.. at least once for a couple of weeks she should do this for her fans lol ;)

Baltacha comments her draw
from the site of British Federation

# British No.1 Baltacha will take on the No.8 seed Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland and is confident of her chances against the world No.8.

# "I've played her before, but it was three or four years ago and I'm a different player now. Coming in here after beating Cirstea earlier this week in Strasbourg has given me a lot of confidence. I went into that match feeling like I had nothing to lose and ready to play the best I can and I'll take the same attitude into the match against Radwanska.

# It's not the easiest first round draw I could have had but I feel really proud that I've made the main draw cut here. It's an honour to be in another grand slam draw on merit.”

# Baltacha suffered injury this week in her second round match at the WTA event in Strasbourg but is confident of making a full recovery before her French Open campaign begins.

# “My back is getting better every day and I'm very confident it will settle down by the time I play."

She sounds too* confident. :o

Beating Agnieszka is not the same as beating a slumping player.Sorry.:kiss:

Geoff MacDsnald from NYT makes analysis of Agnieszka's play seeing her together with Rezai and Martinez Sanchez
as "ones to watch" at RG 2010
Agnieszka Radwanska
Agnieszka Radwanska has arrived as a top-10 player with consistency and smarts. She reminds many tennis observers of Martina Hingis in her understanding of how to play the game.

Like Hingis, Radwanska has a variety of shots and is rarely caught out of position. She can be overpowered, but she competes well enough to find a way to disarm most players, breaking them down with her ability to handle and absorb pace. It’s a joy to watch her change tactics at a critical juncture of a match, often exposing a previously unknown weakness in her opponent’s game.

Unlike the brash Hingis, Radwanska keeps her emotions under control, and her strong mind could help her go far in the draw.

GL Aga in Paris :smooch:

Her draw is good actually , lucky for her that she gets Safina at this time ;). She avoided Sharapova and Rezai . I'm really happy for it :cheer:

Anyway, when I look at the draw one more time and really shock when I see Ana on it too :o , I have the feeling that Ana will comeback strong here . :scared: Hope Aga will stop her :hug: . If she can defeat Ana, then I'm pretty sure that she'll go deep in her draw ;) and a Radwanska-Jankovic will come as expected ;)

i hope for the best Aga!
i personally don't see anything too bad about your draw, a lot of recent question marks surrounding you (yourself included, however...)
GL Aga, make us proud!
