I assume it's only a matter of time, when their father will decide, they won't participate in French Open, 'coz they don't like that particular tournament either!

You do not mention newspaper Polska as the source of the news - neither in your original post nor in your blog.
You cannot expect to be taken seriously. What's more, your post has become a fodder to some imbecile haters frequenting this board. Was that the purpose of your original posting? I hope not.

That mean and uncalled for. I'm not fan of Radwanska the Elder and the aimless crap she spouts but that is just unnecessary.

I don't understand their logic in regard to why the want to boycott Dubai but thats their choice. After all aren't most tournaments only after the big names, although if they feel the organisers have treated them badly then they like anyone else should feel free to avoid the tournament.

It's perhaps because Agnieszka didn't get to play a day later. She said, she had no time for getting used to the conditions, as she had just arrived from Paris. On top of it, she wasn't feeling that great, she said she was sick.

Also it may have to do with the fact, that she had to play qualification last year being ranked in the top 20, right after making the semis in Doha, but that's just my theory.

Still, I don't think all of this should lead to a statement like that, coz that's just the way the life of a tennis player looks like.

I'm afraid you're missing the point.

I tried to find more on this story by searching Polish papers (auto translated by Google), but the best found was from a site called Sport.PL. See link below.

It's hard to understand but the gist seems to be that their father Robert (coach) had trouble getting into Dubai after Aggie's match in France due to a passport problem. Not sure based on sketchy translation, but there's also some suggestion that the father objected to girls' being scheduled to play against each other in the first round.


SPORT.PL: The good news is that a Radwańska sister will play in the second round. The match will be exciting, but in fact we have no luck. Great tournament, dozens of girls, and two Polish women go at each other. Victor Archutowski is manager of sisters.

The Radwanski sisters for the first time play each other at a WTA tournament, in the first round.


Father Robert Radwański was not satisfied. I prefer that fought with the rest of the world and played with each other for victory throughout the tournament, said the coach father. On Sunday he was still in Paris where he has been with Agnieszka in the quarterfinal with Amélie Mauresmo. The coach may not watch the match live on the daughters, because had problems with the handling of visa to Dubai. .... Robert's problems are more prosaic, lacking any stamps. I hope they will allow him to fly, Archutowski smiled.

Oh riiiight - the visa scandal - I almost forgot about it. Radwanski, like Peer, didn't get his visa. They told him a stupid thing, that he hasn't left UAE the last time, so he's practically still there, so he can't enter. :devil:

Gosh. This is nothing to do with liking my favourites, or not liking them, or liking whoever else, or even 'hating' them.
In my opinion, anybody who refers to a tennis player, ANY tennis player, as to 'a creature that is sure to scare away customers from buying tickets', who 'might be welcomed in the Dubai zoo' (please see one of the posts above) deserves to be called an imbecile. You of course may disagree.

It's not politics. Just not going to play where we do not want, to translate his "English" Robert Radwański who decided that his daughter will not take part next season in the WTA tournament in Dubai.
For the organizers of this tournament, if your name is not Williams or Sharapova, you are nothing. Clearly gave us all to feel that way- Radwańskich manager explains Victor Archutowski.

They have right to skip one Premier 5 event, so I don't see any problem. If they don't like this tournament and weren't satisfied with the way they were treated, it's their decision. If WS can skip IW why should Radwanskas care about Dubai?

I surmise that "Sarah" in this article is Agnieszka, maybe "szka" at end of her name translates to that.

2009-02-23 23:30:13, updated: 2009-02-23 23:30:13

This is not politics. We're just not going to play where we do not want to, said Robert Radwański by translators. Sarah's father and trainer, and Ursula decided that next year both our tennis players will not take part into account of the startup plans this year at Barclays Dubai Tennis Tournament Championships.

Politics, as noted, the affair, which rozpętała refusal to grant visas to Israeli Arab Emirates tennis player Shahar Peer. WTA Federation imposed by the organizers of the tournament to the highest penalty in the history of 300 thousand dollars. They also condemned the action tenisiści. American Andy Roddick announced even that did not come to Dubai to defend before wywalczonego title.

We also do not like the behavior to Peer, but what proved to be decisive in this case was personal reasons, Radwańskich manager explains Victor Archutowski. For the organizers of this tournament, if your name is not Williams or Sharapova, you are nothing. Clearly they gave us all that feeling, he adds.

It started with the fact that a visa for Dubai was not gotten for unclear reasons, said the father of sisters. Granted it only after they have done [were finished?] so Agnieszka and Ula organizers of a scene and requested a refund for the unused ticket. So much that it was on Thursday and was not already why bother going there, because Ula dropped two days earlier, and Agnieszka fought only doubles, somewhat sneeringly Archutowski laughs.

I tried to intervene earlier with the tournament director. I sent mail to him, three times, called for a few days and got nothing. Once received, it was a woman, who unfortunately, spoke only in Arabic. That is the organization of the tournament with a prize pool of $2 million. Ironic, said the manager Radwańskich family.

Another was forcing Sarah to play the match in the first round of single (Ula was a rival) on Monday by 12 noon. Doctor examiner her in Paris on Sunday evening. She was too tired to travel, was vulnerable to illness, and on antibiotics. We asked the organizers to give her a little more time for acclimation. Tłumaczyliśmy that will contribute to the Arab weather on arrival from a European winter, it is difficult even for someone healthy. No one, however, is not celebrated, and the effects they have seen. Agnieszka just fell in the first half of the set. In addition, we then had to listen to trivializing comments that apparently the older sister Radwański was nervous.

Next year go to another tournament, and if played at that time, we'll play a lower-ranking tournament, for example, Memphis. I will not change my mind, even if the WTA wants to punish us for it financially, said at the end the father of Sarah and Ula.

END


I guess the part about the tickets is that the Radwanska team's visa issues were not sorted out until Thursday and they wanted a refund from tourney for the unused (or rescheduled) tickets. Purely a guess though.

Radwańscy bojkotują Dubai

24.02.2009 | 09:52

Agnieszka i Urszula Radwańskie nie wystąpią w przyszłym roku w turnieju WTA w Dubaju. Przyczyna? Afera związana z odmową przyznania wizy uprawniającej do wjazdu do ZEA dla Shahar Peer, która pochodzi z... Izraela.




Czyżby Radwańscy zaangażowali się w politykę? Robert Radwański zaprzecza i przekonuje, że jest to tylko gest solidarności z Shahar Peer. - Nam też nie podobało się zachowanie wobec Peer, ale decydujące okazały się w tym wypadku względy osobiste - tłumaczy menedżer Radwańskich Wiktor Archutowski, w wywiadzie dla "Polski The Times". - Dla organizatorów tego turnieju, jeśli nie nazywasz się Williams albo Szarapowa, to jesteś nikim. Dobitnie dali nam wszystkim to odczuć - dodaje. Zaczęło się od tego, że wizy do Dubaju nie dostał z niezrozumiałych powodów ojciec sióstr. Przyznano ją dopiero po tym, jak Agnieszka z Ulą zrobiły organizatorom awanturę i zażądały zwrotu pieniędzy za niewykorzystany bilet lotniczy.

- Wcześniej próbowałem interweniować u dyrektora turnieju. Wysłałem do niego trzy mejle, dzwoniłem przez kilka dni i nic. Raz odebrała jakaś kobieta, ale, niestety, mówiła tylko po arabsku. Tak wygląda organizacja turnieju z pulą nagród 2 mln dol. - ironicznie dodaje menedżer rodziny Radwańskich.

Organizatorzy nie chcieli także zgodzić się na przełożenie meczu Agnieszki Radwańskiej na kolejny dzień, mimo że polska zawodniczka była osłabiona długą podróżą z Paryża oraz chorobą. - Tłumaczyliśmy, że przyzwyczajenie się do arabskiej pogody po przylocie z europejskiej zimy jest trudne nawet dla kogoś zdrowego. Nikogo to jednak nie obchodziło, a efekty sami widzieliście. Agnieszka po prostu padła w połowie pierwszego seta. W dodatku musieliśmy potem słuchać bzdurnych komentarzy, że niby podłożyła się siostrze - denerwuje się Robert Radwański. - W przyszłym roku wybierzemy się na inny, rozgrywany w tym czasie, turniej niższej rangi, np. do Memphis. Nie zmienię zdania, nawet gdyby WTA chciała nas za to ukarać finansowo - kończy.

I interpreted that the Peer situation was a very minor consideration ... and that even without that problem, they still won't play there next year. Could have misunderstood though.

Does anyone know why Aggie didn't play doubles at Dubai with sister Ula, instead with Kirilenko?

I think thats just a bad translation, maybe he had to take care of his papers when leaving last year and he didnt, so it looks like he'd never left the country. I'm pretty sure they didnt mean he'd been in Dubai all year long :o

my question to Aga is, when would she had prefered to play her first round match if not Monday at noon. Monday at 3 pm? or 7 pm. Would some hours had made the difference for her?
She must had known that all first round matches were to be completed during Monday for the final to be contested on Saturday.
