World number six Agnieszka Radwanska launched a verbal attack on Victoria Azarenka, the world's leading female player, after reaching the semi-finals of the Dubai Open on Thursday.
The 22-year-old Pole said she was"angry" and had lost respect for the superbly in-form Belarussian, alleging that Azarenka's behaviour in Doha lastweek had not been good for the image of the game.
Radwanska appeared to be referring to Azarenka's hobbling and wincing between rallies during parts of their semi-final match, whilst still moving well enough during the rallies to secure a solid straight sets win.
It follows Radwanska's criticisms of grunting in the women's game last month after losing to Azarenka in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open.
Radwanska's latest comments came when she was asked in a press conference here whether she had been annoyed at the end of last week's loss in Doha.
She replied: "Well, to be honest, I don't think this is worth a comment. But I think after this match....just lost a lot of respect. That's it.
"If you do this in the match, if anyonedidn't see the match, I think it's just aquick look on YouTube and you'll know what was going on," she continued.
The questioner responded by saying that he had not been seeking for Radwanska to criticize another player,but she continued anyway.
"Yeah, I was angry because I don't think this is the great image for the women's tennis, what was going on there," she added. "So, yeah, unfortunately."
Youtube clips show Radwanska offering a peremptory handshake to Azarenka with no eye contact at the end of the match, and include a TV commentator saying that Azarenka's behavior had affected her opponent's focus.
However Azarenka contention that her ankle had been painful was lent weight by her decision on Wednesdayto withdraw from the Dubai Open to allow more time for it to heal.
Radwanska's critical remarks in Australia came after a three-set loss toAzarenka, whose hooting and shrieking while striking the ball has been attracting criticism for some time.
Though Radwanska suggested she had got used to this, she neverthelessused post-match interviews after her loss to Azarenka to criticize Maria Sharapova's shriek. She described thisas "pretty annoying" and "just too loud".
"Of course everybody can make some noise. This is tennis," Radwanska said.
"But I think it's just too loud. I don't think it's very necessary to scream that loud. So if they (the WTA) want to do something, why not?"
During some of Azarenka's matches in Melbourne, spectators mimicked her noise, and the host broadcaster, Channel 7, produced a "Whoo! meter"to measure it.
Although Radwanska is at career-highranking, she is more than 2,000 pointsbehind Sharapova, who is number two in the world, and more than 3,700 behind Azarenka at number one.
However Radwanska can climb one place to number five, above US Open champion Sam Stosur, if she wins the Dubai Open title this week. On Friday she plays Jelena Jankovic, the former world number one from Serbia in the semi-finals.

Factually Vika withdraw-ed from Dubaï (a tournament she wanted to play), so it's not an hypothesis anymore she was injured :rolleyes: - she takes with it a 0 pointer (I still don't know how why she's taking that).

Radwanska is wrong but desperately is trying to come for Vika. What's she done in her resumé to be that bold headed ? :weirdo:

I'm not really a fan of Azarenka but by already winning three titles this year, one of them a slam, she has played a fair bit of tennis. Being in finals week after week takes a toll and I'm inclined to give her the benefit of the doubt. I would rather her not play Dubai and be 100% fit and healthy for Indian Wells and Miami.

All we need is just one opponent to call out the screamers ON COURT and after just a few points awarded to a screamers opponent, watch how the screamer can suddenly play tennis without the screams.

Radwanska has had her griping side for a long time - anyone remember the shirt with a drawing of Jankovic?

I like her game but this comes across as "if other players would stop distracting me with noises and hobbling, I'd be winning more."

Plus Azarenka was supposedly a friend - handle that before going public.

Inger67
Feb 23rd, 2012, 04:11 PM
How is she not right? :shrug:

You guys really think Vika was that badly injured? She moved superbly in the rallies but was limping and acting as if her leg was falling off during the points and especially after the match. And then the next day, beats Stosur 2 and 1. Isn't the day after spraining an ankle supposed to also be worse in pain? I think it's great for tennis that Azarenka is undefeated this year but still, Radwanska is right in her comments.

Rest Maria!
Feb 23rd, 2012, 04:12 PM

Just because she withdrew does not mean it had to be her ankle injury - although of course she probably cited that as the reason why. Pure exhaustion and playing another 4 matches in a week after just playing the week before is definitely the reason why. She's played 17 matches already, surely she has to be somewhat fatigued.

i completely agree.

I am not sure how Aga has managed to remain so "unpolished" (sic!!). I guess all this expected correctness comes with big, fat contracts which enforce compliance with norms and rules.

Aga, Dear, you are not gonna make millions if you keep on yapping like that! The truth is not always what matters ;)

1. Radwanska could be all around a fitter player
2. Radwanska is not undefeated on the year. Surely Azarenka doesn't want to go into a tournament feeling fatigued and have the possibility of losing increase. Especially since so many comparisons of her are being drawn to Novak of last year.

dont know if she is either more shameless or stupid. :spit:
the only logical explanation I can think of... after she realised she´ll never win a slam - let alone reach a SF - she just want to be most hated on TF to become somehow relevant. Good start- maybe even improves calling out Kvitty or Serena - but needs way more to snatch Caro´s wig, honey. ;)

anyway, next ON COURT trashing from Queen Masha or Queen Victoria cant come soon enough. :lick:

Lol Inger, Victoria has always had a strong dramatic like personality, that's what makes her one of the most fascinating, she's a film -- this isn't new that's actually for your warming up remark. You didn't like her yesterday willn't like her today. :lol:

Anyways whichever reasons motivated her withdrawal Radwanska has no authority in saying what is clean or unclean for the WTA tour -- Victoria has won her stuff in a legit way that's the only thing that counts as a player since they're tennis players before all.

Radwanska has been part of all of Victoria's successes this year by losing to her, Sydney, AO and Doha -- I can understand her frustration. :lol:

Wow. Radwanska only said she thought that Azarenka's behaviour was bad during this match, and all Tennisforum is overreacting on it. How powerful she is :rolleyes:

She said just what she had felt during this match against Vika, and once again journalists dramatize it ("verbal attack" ? Please...). Like her or not, but Radwanska was on the court and surely lived the match like you didn't; she saw that, despite of the dramatic fall, Azarenka was running nearly like a rabbit until the end of the match and was in really good shape in final against Stosur, that's why she has doubts. And that's it.

When you play Sotsur in a final and she's unable to keep good shots consecutively in court, it's a practice session for a great player like Vika. She can beat Stosur anytime, anywhere even on one foot and actually this is what she did. So that final isn't a fact against Victoria that she wasn't hurt.

One footed Vika has still enough talent to be able to win a tournament such as a Premier 5 without losing a single set -- why does Radwanska not show her credentials instead being a very bad spokeswoman for the tour ?

But there was no reason to say this to hundreds of people, she has been a bad friend to Azarenka, insted of being happy for the great year Victoria is having so far.

Just because she withdrew does not mean it had to be her ankle injury - although of course she probably cited that as the reason why. Pure exhaustion and playing another 4 matches in a week after just playing the week before is definitely the reason why. She's played 17 matches already, surely she has to be somewhat fatigued.

She could have also withdrew because she'd heard the speculation regarding her injury (i.e. it didn't show on the TV that her ankle was affected) and she wanted to prove everyone wrong :shrug: by saying "see I am injured, I've had to withdraw from this tournament".

Anyway, I thought Aga and Caroline were more BFF's than Aga and Vika were. Always seemed Vika was the outsider.

Anyways shes done it now, and that is that and she has to live with the fallout, it will be interesting but at the end of the day azarenka has the grand slam and she plays the better tennis In my opinion.

I don't mind Aga. In fact, I enjoy her game very much, but to insinuate that Vika faked an injury defies logic. Faking an injury only makes sense if you're losing and want to get your opponent out of her/his rhythm. But Vika was winning, so there would be no point in doing that. If anything, she would risk breaking up her own rhythm and change the momentum of the match. So, either the injury was real or Vika is the worst tactician in tennis.

When you have an opponent doing all these antics between the points, and then moves completely normal in the points, it is very difficult as a player to keep your concentration. If such a focused and mentally strong player as Radwanska is having problems with this, it tells a lot. I speak from personal experience too. If you are a little bit hurting, but still fit enough to play, please act somewhat normal between the point also. It is not fair to the opponent because as humans we tend to look out for eachother, and if one is acting all injured in between points, you can't help but worry and think "is she gonna stop", "where is this going". It's very difficult not to be affected. Radwanska's comments are understandable.

When you have an opponent doing all these antics between the points, and then moves completely normal in the points, it is very difficult as a player to keep your concentration. If such a focused and mentally strong player as Radwanska is having problems with this, it tells a lot. I speak from personal experience too. If you are a little bit hurting, but still fit enough to play, please act somewhat normal between the point also. It is not fair to the opponent because as humans we tend to look out for eachother, and if one is acting all injured in between points, you can't help but worry and think "is she gonna stop", "where is this going". It's very difficult not to be affected. Radwanska's comments are understandable.
Her own fault that she can't keep her concentration. Their job is to play tennis, not to think about the physical state of their opponents all the time and whether or not they are close to retiring from a match. That IMO speaks volumes about Radwanska's mentality more than anything else. It's not like Vika was screaming between points, she was just grimacing. If Radwanska can't help but look at the big screen to watch Azarenka's reactions or look at her directly after a point, then that's her own fault.

Rubbish! A player who's thrown off by things like that is not in a state of being focused or mentally strong. They could be someone who is usually focused but having an off day. Whenever one's reason for being off is "what the other person was doing" it shows a lack of focus. Let's say Azarenka had rolled around sobbing after every point. So what? Play your game. That's it. Period. I too have been in states where I let other's behavior affect my game. When I'm focused I don't do that.

I didn't watch this match but I have a hard time believing that the only think Azarenka did was grimacing. Surely she must have done more than that to generate such a flow of comments from both her opponent and people here on TF.

I don't think it's rubbish. It happened to Justine Henin as well against Lindsay Davenport. It's very hard not to be affected by an injured opponent. If you don't think so, well, congratulations!

But I agree with you at the same time. You can call it being mentally not strong, if you let it get to you.

I am not sure what you are guys talking about. She did not say she was distracted. She said the this type of behavior is not good for the image of the sport. I really don't have an opinion on this, it doesn't bother me, but Aga certainly wasn't looking for excuses for her losses. The losses could have contributed to her being annoyed, but I don't really know. She even stated that it is perhaps not worth a co comment. She has the right to express her own opinion.

This reminds me of what Sam Smith said once on Eurosport "In womens tennis, grudges last for decades!" :lol:

I find it all a bit strange though, having watched the highlights on Saturday and then the "handshake" at the end. This can't have just happened on Saturday, Radwanska must have been harbouring some of these thoughts for some time and now it's exploded. This situation could be irreprable between the two now, which is a pity because the media might love it but it could get nasty when they play eachother in future.

Personally I don't think Azarenka was faking injury, it could be that Radwanska was so shocked that Azarenka didn't retire as she has always done in the past, that she assumed Azarenka can't really be injured.

I heard the WTA are writing to academies and coaches of young players to discourage grunting and shrieking in future players, not sure how true this is.

Azarenka acted like a DRAMA QUEEN in that match and I see no problem with her being called out on it by another pro player. I don't care whether she faked her injury or not, she used gamesmanship after her timeout and her post-match reaction was ridicilous. She acted like she won that match wirhout one eye, one leg and eight fingers, when she clearly ran like a rabbit during every point. Her matches would be a total snorefest if not her annoying grunt, so it's actually nice that she can provide some entertainment, even if it means lack of sportsmanship. As a viewer, I have no problem with that, as a rival, I would have.

Vika should blank her next time

talk about fake
what about her fake shoulder tape ?
she's been hitting her serves harder with that fake tape on.
