She'll gain more haters simply by being more successfull. But she'll never rival Wozniacki, except if she keeps going on about the grunters. Especially if she would have the nerve to beat them.

The more you win the more you are hated , simple. She just needs to overtake Maria in the rankings (which seems likely by Wimbledon) , or god forbid get a win over her (also likely) and pretty soon it'll be 'Woz who? Down with the Ninja'.

People really need to stop trivializing "hate" by using the term in this sort of context. Someone being beaten to death because of their ethnicity, creed, values or sexuality is an example of hate.

If you think there are people here who want to see Radwanska or Wozniacki be physically harmed in some way then maybe the term is appropriate.

Radwanska's game is FAR more polarizing, some people love it and some hate it (just read any WWW threads for Radwanska's matches this past week), whereas Wozniacki's is almost universally hated.

i don't think i have ever seen that much insulting posts to aga(again, i am not saying hate. i think people are very confused between the word 'hating' and 'disliking') when she won Tokyo, Beijing.

it's apparently right after her foul-mouth remarks in 2012 (firstly, her biased hypocritical comments on grunting to take a shot at maria), and vika a few days ago, which get on the nerves of some of the biggest vika fans too. plus, the number of vika fans seem to be increasing (aka bandwangon-ing) since she just grabbed her 1st slam. so i guess all the factors combined to make it seem like she has got more insulting posts :shrug:

To the OP.

No!

Though Aga's a weak hitting (lately big mouth talking), skinny, tennis vulture of sorts. She does have some game, shown improvement, booted her father recently and tries to go for her shots when she can.

Woz on the other hand, is bigger gal physically, was #1, had a good defensive foundation to start with (who also has had a equally big mouth recently), and has seemed to regress, and not improve over the past two years.

So regardless of the "Vulture" moniker bestowed on Aga and her recent griping, I don't think she'll ever reach the levels of hate on TF (and certainly not in the press, that Woz received) for making the top 5.

In away you can say Aga deserved it, though her slam results can still improve. Maybe it will, sometime soon (though I'm not sure if the French or Wimby would be the event for her)? But you never know?

We'll see?

i love how people seem so sure aga wont make it to number 1. has woz not taught people anything? if vika gets an injury and maria and kvitova have a bad wimbledon (serena kim and venus will all probably be low seeds/unseeded looming for the upset) aga will be sitting pretty atop of the rankings.

she is one falling apart slam draw away from it i feel, as you can rely on her to make semis and finals of most the regular tour events from now till wimbledon, especially seen as she will be seeded so high for them.

I like Aga, she is using her abilities as an athlete alongside her intelligence to play smart counter punching tennis. She has great all round skills and it's nice to watch someone constructing points and thinking her way through a match. I think she's making the best of everything she's got.

Feb 26th, 2012, 04:28 AM
No. Aga has a good fanbase on TF unlike Woz. Woz became more hated because of her annoying fanbase on TF. That's a fact. You won't see many delusional Agatards saying she will win many slams for example.

delicatecutter
Feb 26th, 2012, 04:35 AM
As an Aga fan, I couldn't care less if she ever wins a Major or is #1. I loved her when she was in the Top 20. That's not why I'm a fan of hers and I don't think anybody should be a fan of someone based on her success. :unsure: I love her game. But the more success she garners, the more outspoken she is, she is going to acquire haters. But she will never have the level of disdain that Wozniacki has. Because Aga has a pleasing game to watch.

And if Aga does make a Major SF or by some miracle WIN one (which I think she has a higher likelihood to than say Wozniacki), I will be ecstatic just because I've been a fan or hers for so long. Hopefully it's Wimbledon. This year. And she doesn't draw Cetkovska. :sobbing:

Radwanska seems to have a good deal more craft to her game than most players. She exploited Maria's serve woes before it really became an issue (07 US open)... I think that right there shows how she has an eye for details.

I just really, really wish she would beef that 2nd serve up a little bit. Kick serve, slice out wide, it doesnt even have to be incredibly fast as long as the placement is good. If she can get that and keep a hold on her nerves.... she has a good chance of having a very nice career. Even with that said, unfortunately she will usually be vulnerable to being overpowered by the top girls.

It's not just her playing style, it's her attitude on court.

She expect all her opponents to just fold against her, and when she gets out played.

The pressed look on her face, the sore loser attitude, If she ever has the success of Wozniacki and the same attitude remained I could see her garnering quite a few detractors.

Of course on the flip side, Poland is very patriotic country, so she is likely to attract alot of fanfare as well.

I'm not sure the comparison is apt. In fact, I don't think it is. I think Bartoli's expressions were more about her playing and her father's coaching than about the opponent. She seemed, to me, to be very inwardly focused, even though she used a lot of distraction tactics (kicks, jumps, side-to-side movements, air swings) on court.

In fact, the antics suggest the opposite -- that she was insecure about her game -- that she didn't expect to win. I will say, though, that she looked like she felt she was going to win in the later matches at Wimbledon I saw. The belief was there, but I also don't think it had anything to do with expecting the opponent to fold.

No, because she is even more harmless against big names than Karolina.

edit: though she is desperately trying to close the gap with her tongue.

Lol, okay.

I'm not sure the comparison is apt. In fact, I don't think it is. I think Bartoli's expressions were more about her playing and her father's coaching than about the opponent. She seemed, to me, to be very inwardly focused, even though she used a lot of distraction tactics (kicks, jumps, side-to-side movements, air swings) on court.

Bartoli's sportsmanship was among the worst I've ever seen. "Allez!" after the opponent's UEs and DFs. When a set or a break down, Bartoli was limping, dying between points, was routinely taking tactical timeouts, only to sprint to the chair during changeovers if she managed to level the match. Such a disgraceful player. :facepalm:

Yeah, Bartoli stans have no right to criticize Aga's attitude (especially labeling the "sore loser" label on Aga is pathethic, given that she gave like two cold/bitchy handshakes over the last 3 years).

Marion ran on heart and adrenalin and fought despite contanstly baring minor injuries, she is a great role model and was always a gracious loser (despite one incident with razzano but we a know the back story there)

Aga always looks so disgusted when she gets outplayed, like she has no respect for her opponent, marion never acted so condesending.

And on that note, can anyone please, PLEASE tell me why on all the Chinese tennis forums she is referred to as "Pig Kidney"?

I mean no disrespect BTW, but I can only garner one reason why.

Will Radwanska attract more hate towards her than The Woz?

No, far from it. The casual fans/tournament goers, drawn mostly from older demographics, love Agatha's antediluvian playing style because it reminds them of how tennis was played back when they first began following the game, whereas the very same people, at least in Europe, never warmed up to Wozniacka's (apparently) cruder, more physical take on baseline attritional pushing. RG and French TV pretty much pretended Wozniacka didn't even exist, and the crowds at the bigger European events were mostly lukewarm towards her.

No, because she is even more harmless against big names than Karolina.

edit: though she is desperately trying to close the gap with her tongue.

:lol:

Two years on and I suppose things haven't changed all that much.

How is a player who did everything humanly possible to distract the opponent a role model? There was no end to Bartoli's gamesmanship antics. Making a grumpy face after losing a point is far, far less egregious than Cake's disgusting behavior.

Aga has never done anything special to be hated, actually. Except some cold handshakes, it's not like she insults her opponents or something else. She rarely complains to the umpire, she doesn't show much emotion on court (including when she wins amazing points), rarely does any fist pump. Overall, she's very discreet on court and it's not a flaw. Yes, she shows some frustration sometimes but it's always directed to herself and she always moves on quickly. She's exacting with herself, and you can easily understand why once you have understood how she plays.

It goes without saying but her game is beautiful (even more in real it seems) and many people love her for that, believe it or not. Also because she's really a fun girl off-court.

i do not hate anyone
i found her repulsive, since the 1st time i saw her.
and after tones of crap directet to vika, i find her discusting now
but she plays a good tennis, unfortunately

Thats all that should matter really in theory but he snooty attitude certainly doesnt help.

But the truth is that she plays good tennis - if you are talking about club tennis. How she is rolling in pro is a mystery to me.

Here is my advice: always bet against Aga. She'll make you rich.

Yup. Along with the comments she made at the Olympics, she's for sure the best flag bearer they've ever had.

well, she plays all these fed cups in mug groups (like all week in israel year after year) and this year also played hopman cup, that's not something other top players do :lol: (except petra - but i don't know if even petra would go to play some group 3 zone time after time)


she tried to cheer herself up with a classic tennis line "oh well, next week is also a tournament" but media blew it out of proportion, fired up with angry people who give a shit once every 4 years about sports like kayaking or wrestling suddenly unloaded on her for not bringing 3 medals (singles, doubles and mixed) because newspapers wrote she's a medal hope and so poland could get 15 medals :spit:

everyone can lose a match, no biggie, but people expected her to at least burst with tears and say how much she was preparing for start in olympics for the whole 4 years and now she disappointed all people in the country (then she'd be forgiven very quickly, instead, it's still being brought up) nobody of those people watched tennis before her wimbledon final 2012 anyway :lol: and then second time they watched tennis is when janowicz played in paris in autumn that year

the funniest part was then some fat old dude from polish olympic committee spoke about "lost olympic medal hopes" and mentioned aga, and he dared to say how "those sportsmen lost money that polish olympic committee has invested in them"

as if aga got a single $ :haha: even if she got a few hundred euros by accident... seriously? she's not some 50 km walker who did his best to end in top 10 to not lose his 200 euros of monthly scholarship and continue career. she's fine funding career on her own lmao, also ula's career. where were these old fat outspoken dudes when janowicz couldn't afford a flight to participate in australian open in the very same year :lol:

this last example shows the best the magnitude of ridiculous hysteria over aga's olympics

Did anyone else see the handshake at the end of the match against Cibulkova in Miami? I completely understand she had match points in the second set BUT there is no excuse for poor sportsmanship and a lack of graciousness towards your opponent.

Radwanska plays on the international stage, and as such is seen by many. I would hope that young people do not follow or emulate that kind of poor behaviour.

.........and Wo Wo's absolutely respectful handshake after losing to Li Na???????
How can there be a comparison between these two players in regards to sportsmanship and graciousness?.....and let's not forget Wo Wo got to number 1 to boot!
