I woke up this morning and read that Bartoli had to withdraw and I didn't believe it. I don't think I've ever woken up so happy and had the best morning. so happy for Aga :sobbing: :hearts:

Red: Caro, Petra, Bepa, Aga
White: Maria, Vika, Na, Sam

So a win over Vera plus another needed :)

I see such results:
Kvitova def Wozniacki
Zvonareva def Kvitova
Zvonareva def Wozniacki

Aga should beat Vera, but I think she'd have good chances against Petra too. If Caro continues to play like shit she should be beatable too.

The draw is actually best for Aga. :angel:
Wozniacki should be better for her than Sharapova
Kvitova better than Azarenka
and of course Zvonareva whom Aga loves to play ;)

I agree, very good group for Aga. But I think that anyone can advance. All results will depend on Aga's and Petra's game, I think. Tha court is similar to the one in Beijing, so it's goona be okay for Aga:)
Any idea when OOP is released?

Anyone has a chance, so does Aga. Hope she will do her best.

Not very good draw.
But anyway, i think all players in this group have approximately equаl chances

Bad news, I'm afraid. Papa Radwanski has told press (http://www.rp.pl/artykul/60574,738432-W-Stambule-odbylo-sie-losowanie-grup-mistrzostw-WTA.html) he has some info about the surface, and it looks like it's going to be pretty slow. Aga's chances just got slimmer... :awww:

Slow HC isn't always bad for Aga. Look at IW. Moscow was just extremely slow. But also slow for Aga means slow for Kvitova which may be a good thing :)

Radwanski told it is "too slow for Agnieszka's tennis" and that it will be good for those stronger players.

What's up with the "wanna-be" in the thread tiles. It means that someone wants to be something but doesn't have the capability to be what she wants. I really don't know if Aga will achieve what she wants, but I believe she has the capability, don't you?

I guess I don't like it. I am all for irony, but it could be more positive towards Aga since we are her fans, aren't we?

Very tough, close match against Caroline. Only a few points decided the match :sad:

Really good tennis from Aga in set 1. Then Caroline improved and Aga got weaker, late in 3rd set some great points. I loved that both girls attacked the net so often, was fun to watch. Aga was very smart and has amazing volleys.

Aga showed why she is one of the mentally strong players

1st set: 4-5 [0-40] -> Aga wins the set 7-5 :worship:

3rd set: 2-4 [0-40] -> Aga fights back to 4-4 :yeah:

Tatcher

Aga has a shoulder injury and she is not in the best form.
However it's not very bad result. She lost in three sets.
I think, Aga has some chances. She can win another two matches. Good luck !!
