Kimiko had to also deal with some really horrendous overrules, Alves's long lost sister was probably officiating.

Radwanska's injury timeout was total bullshit, but Kimiko has only herself to blame for this one. 4-1 lead in the third set, served for the match, break point at 5-5, game point at 5-6...not to mention Radwanska only held once the entire first set. Seriously, how many chances do you need?

Yep. The very obvious gamesmanship of Radwanska was extremely off-putting to watch (I've really lost any respect I may have had for her), but Kimiko had plenty of chances to win it even after she let Radwanska back into the 3rd set. Served for it, and then had numerous chances in the games thereafter. At the end of the day, you either produce or you don't, and Kimiko didn't play the big points well enough. Unfortunate result, but she needs to really work on mentally tightening her game up when it counts.

I don't understand how that's NOT cheating? :lol: It's obviously within the rules that you can take an injury timeout to retrieve treatment... Radwanska was not hampered by an injury. The only thing that needs treatment is the fact that Radwanska is still in this tournament. :happy:

I would stop short of saying Aga cheated but it was certainly gamesmanship and I didn't like it and I don't have a lot good to say about Radwanska right now. I'm pretty bummed about that. Kimiko deserved this match.

But I do have to aknowledge, although it wasn't the most sporting thing to do, Radwanska was pretty clever taking that break. Kimiko has always been a slow starter and she plays her best tennis once she is warmed up. I've seen that time and time again. When Kimiko is on top of her game there isn't a lot an opponent can do except hope for (or engineer) a break in the play.

What happened here actually reminded me of the Wimbledon 96 semi against Graf. Kimiko was all over Graf and the only thing that was going to stop her from winning was a break in play. And then after the 2nd set the match was called for darkness and the next day Kimiko never got that magic she had in the 2nd set back. This was quite similar.

I'm very very bummed right now. Actually I'm downright angry.

Total gamesmanship from Radwanska (never really liked her or her BORING game, today just sealed it), but it's within the rules and she came out on top. Nothing more to it. At 40 years of age, Kimiko should be better equipped to deal with shit like this.

Disappointing to see her lose and 100 points go begging, but she should have been able to close this thing out :(

Couldn't have said it any better. However, Kimiko has to work on this aspect of her game. Her serve doesn't win her many free points, but she's lost most of these close matches cuz she had some really easy errors on crunch time. You can't afford that.

If Kimiko can play like that for the rest of the year she will make some deep runs. Choke was disappointing and not exactly sure what brought that around, her play dropped considerably after the injury timeout, but she is a veteran and should not be affected by any psyche out tactics (if that was one at all).

Loled at the racquet breaking.

It is fairly obvious she didn't have an injury, looking at her play before and after the timeout, her play wasn't hampered at all. Kimiko was on a roll and Radwanska had no answers other than to take a timeout and screw with her rhythm. But at the same time Kimiko has no business falling for bush league tactics like that, she is a veteran of the tour and should continue to go about her business but she managed to let that get to her and her play dropped considerably.

Sorry sweetheart but I didn't hate Aga until this match. Kinda hard for this shit not to have a significant impact on how you view a player, but I can honestly say I'm not surprised.

I don't understand what you are trying to say; are you saying you are too stupid to be able to tell whether someone is really injured? You can't actually TELL that that was gamesmanship? Why don't you take the situation into account? How badly she was losing? How hampered she DIDN'T look by an injury?

The whole tour IS filled with liars and cheaters. An abundance of them. And it's just disheartening and repugnant to see one beat a saint like Kimiko. Sorry if the reality of people supporting justice and not a cheating pusher is too harsh for you. :wavey:

Sorry sweetheart but I didn't hate Aga until this match. Kinda hard for this shit not to have a significant impact on how you view a player, but I can honestly say I'm not surprised.

I don't understand what you are trying to say; are you saying you are too stupid to be able to tell whether someone is really injured? You can't actually TELL that that was gamesmanship? Why don't you take the situation into account? How badly she was losing? How hampered she DIDN'T look by an injury?

The whole tour IS filled with liars and cheaters. An abundance of them. And it's just disheartening and repugnant to see one beat a saint like Kimiko. Sorry if the reality of people supporting justice and not a cheating pusher is too harsh for you. :wavey:

Believe what you want and I'll do the same. If you think that WTA is filled with liars and cheaters then I don't know why you're following such a fake sport.
Thanks for calling me stupid and the 'I'm not suprised part'. You really seem to be a very nice person.

One and only warning, no more posts about Aga being a bitch. Until they change the rules that say medical time outs are not allowed she did nothing wrong. Is it gamesmanship, probably but that doesn't make her a cheater.

Total gamesmanship from Radwanska (never really liked her or her BORING game, today just sealed it), but it's within the rules and she came out on top. Nothing more to it. At 40 years of age, Kimiko should be better equipped to deal with shit like this.

Disappointing to see her lose and 100 points go begging, but she should have been able to close this thing out :(

I would stop short of saying Aga cheated but it was certainly gamesmanship and I didn't like it and I don't have a lot good to say about Radwanska right now. I'm pretty bummed about that. Kimiko deserved this match..
Radwanska´s pathetic behavious was something to see, i hope she loses right away really. :rolleyes:

Anyway Date is responsible for this loss, especially with that crap of a game while serving for the match... Radwanska did very little to deserve the last couple of games, but Date gave them away with easy errors.

Anyway no need for this delusional comment :tape:
What happened here actually reminded me of the Wimbledon 96 semi against Graf. Kimiko was all over Graf and the only thing that was going to stop her from winning was a break in play.
It was not the first time Graf loses a second set in her carreer to then recover in a third set, and inittially it was Graf who was walking over Kimiko at 6-2 2-0, when she started to fool around.. :rolleyes: :p

Besides Aga was miles away from playing her best tennis and still Kimiko couldn't capitalize on that. She didn't hold her serve even once in the entire 1st set! I don't think that's Agnieszka's fault.

Errr, isn't the point of an injury time out to ease/fix the pain in which case making it easier for the player to play better tennis.

Therefore, wouldn't it make sense for Aga to come out of the injury timeout playing better because hey, guess what, it's actually done what it's meant to do. :rolleyes:

She basically is saying what Radwanska did was not illegal, but it did affect her big time. When she starts out she feels cold and can't execute well. Kimiko was starting to cramp as well. She will talk to doctors how she can solve it back in Japan...

Not everything is pitch black or ivory white.

Was Agnieszka cheating when she took an injury break? Of course she was not. What she did was very much within the rules and plenty of players have done the same thing in the past and with the same motivation and plenty of players will continue to do so in the future. What Agnieszka did was not a hanging offence, nor does it justify anyone refering to her as a "bitch" or using other similar terms.

On the other hand, it was hardly the most admirable way to go about winning a tennis match. Agnieszka did lose a very substantial amount of respect from me today.

One thing you are forgetting is that Agnieszka's presence at the tournament was uncertain until very last moment because of the medical procedure she went through in the end of last year, so her medical break could be well justified. There is no reason for her to not do everything within the rules to win the match. Would I like to see a clean win? I certainly would, but it wasn't possible at this time.

I'm afraid your points here don't really wash. Her medical timeout involved treatment to her back which had nothing to do with the foot she needed surgery for. Had Radwanska needed treatment to her foot, which thankfully appeared in good shape throughout the contest* your point would very well made. As it was, she merely felt like a backrub.

I obviously don't know what was really happening. However if she wanted to make a fake time out believable she could do it about the foot; since it was about her back then there was probably something there. I am just giving her benefit of doubt, it is not like she is notorious with things like that.

But the point is, we NEVER know if Radwanska's back was really that hurt, and making assumption accusing someone of cheating based on one's own OPINION is a far worse thing to do, not any better than cheating, at least.

Again, please, is it so hard to actually read my posts? I have already stated that I do not believe Radwanska broke any rules and have made it clear I do not back accusations of cheating. There is a strong distinction between "cheating" and gamesmanship which can done within the rules allowed by the game. Let me be very clear, I am not fond of having my words twisted and I will not allow you to attempt to twist what I am saying. Please read what I originally wrote very carefully.

If you think it was totally acceptable what Aga did as she did not break any rules that is fine. I am not going to try to change your opinion. I, however, was very disappointed in her actions.

Give the girl a break. She had a foot surgery in November and was on crutches until the beginning of December. She came in with hardly any practice and had a period (her father hints at that in his interview today).
Kimiko beat Sharapova, Na Li, Peer, Stosur, Pavlyuchenkova and Hantuchova last autumn so I would hardly expect Aga to double bagel her.

Don't get me wrong, I watched the game until 1-2* in the third set (thought it wasn't worth wasting a night's sleep for this) and wasn't impressed with Aga AT ALL. It was one of her worse matches out of the ones I've seen and in normal circumstances I would have been disgusted. But show me any other player who came back 2 months after surgery and isn't rusty?

Ever heard of a deuce?

I wasn't implying she won all her games on errors, genius :weirdo:.

I have seen Radwanska play many other times when she was fully fit and playing year round and I have never been impressed by her. She is nothing more than a poor womens Wozniacki (hence why the Woz has such an easy time beating a much inferior clone of herself) with a Dementieva like 2nd serve. Sorry nothing she has done ever in her career convinces me otherwise.

What's wrong with that stupid umpire?:mad:

She actually made kimiko in big trouble last year's Osaka too.
What? she likes to control the match or something?
She definitely like overrule which often seems to be her mistake.

It would have been different if the match was held in the court with challange system. Then the stupid umpire won't try hard.:rolleyes:

Aga should play the game of kimiko.. taking the ball early.. slices it up when necessary and come to the net as often as she can. Obviously Kimiko does everything better.

No, because she beat herself, that's why. (And we know why.) Granted she's old enough to know better, but there's only so much you can do about cramps anyway. :(
