I have thought Brussels was a big mistake for Aga, but maybe I am wrong.

Aga may need a couple of matches in conditions similar to RG....Rome wasn't it for sure

I still hope Aga won't try to go all the way, please tank it strategically, Aga!

Lesia...nice looking girl, gorgeous smile :) I though she showed some potential when I watched her match against Serena last month, but today she just sucked.

agree, she needs match practice and can't be fatigued for RG

It was nice to see her relax and smiling towards the end. Though I think her rack is the her best body part :drool::devil:

I think Aga can play all the way through, she should cruise to the final with that draw and her play here might not negatively affect her RG performance as she shouldn't get tired. If she requests morning matches throughout the week,she should be able to plan her days around RG preparations.

hopefully, I just don't want her to burn out around her RG QF, otherwise the TF anti-Aga brigade will give us hell about her not being in the GS SF again :devil: :rolls:

you could be right, however, I suspect that 4 matches in Brussels + 5 matches in Paris (if we dream of Aga reaching that elusive slam semifinal) could be too much within 10 days. Fatigue will unavoidably set in at certain time, which will only lower Aga's chances of beating Serena in the quarters (just kidding you Aga haters, do not tear me apart) ;)

Could have won that with her eyes shut.

There are matches and there are "matches", eg. today it was 56 minutes including 10 minutes for medical time-out, maybe 2 rallies with 10+ shots. Tomorrow should be similar, so Aga will have maybe 2 tough matches in Brussels, if that. Then you have early rounds which should be cakewalks and are played every other day, so Aga should be just fine physically going into R4/QF at Roland Garros. :shrug:

yes but it always adds up and in the later stages she has to be at her best physically. let's just hope she knows what she is doing.

Not good enough, bud, I want her in that RG final ;)

But seriously, I just hope it will be sunny and dry in Paris, wet slow clay + heavy balls will kill any chances Aga may have.

Is Tsurenko always this bad? She played in a ridiculously low level today.

Depends whom she'll draw. Luckily RG is much faster than Rome, faster courts + lighter balls, Brussels has the same balls as RG and you could see the difference today.

Many have favs that don't deliver so they need a scapegoat. Don't think Aga should be in Brussels at this time btw.

9 matches(probably including several blowouts like this one) in 2 weeks, nothing she can't handle. Don't forget that Brussels ends on Saturday and there are free days between RG matches.

too true :fiery: well you know, on the other side, going to Paris after one rubbish game in Rome probably wouldn't be that good either :scratch:

Agreed, you could argue she had enough rest already :). SF..., doubt it's going to happen in Paris, her game's much better suited to HC so we probably have to wait until USO or AO.

I don't think she's an inherently bad clay court player - she moves properly on it, her slides are exemplary. It's just on an extremely slow courts like in Rome she can't hit through the opponents and even bad moving opponents have all the time in the world to properly hit her balls. But in Paris they sped up courts themselves (it was in 2009, wasn't it?) and since last year use very light balls, so conditions are much quicker.

Last year Sharapova barely edged her out in R4, if she got past her she'd probably reach SF. I think SF is not out of reach at all.

exactly, I just hope she won't exit too early, and possibly not to Vika ( all those nice, encouraging comments afterwards :armed: )

easy for aga. tsurenko has a good backhand, hard to tell much else from that performance though.

Seems to me that Aga still dont know how to work on clay, but yeah just need to improve and learn how to slice :oh:

Radwańska 2 cm shorter and 11 kg lighter than Tsurenko (I learned that while watching the match). The latter being quite slim -- just shows how light Agnieszka is. Probably one of the lightest in the Top 30 at least, perhaps even Top 100.

What was Tsurenko trying on those easy putaways? :haha::help:

I think this court is extremely slow. :unsure: Lesia normally hits harder I believe. The injury may have affected that though.
