Fed Cup should be very easy.

If we win the group then we play with the winner of GROUP B which should be Sweden and Agnieszka will play Larsson then. ;)

That's exactly what I think too. With a little more power, she could end the points more easily. She already knows where to put the ball and she controls the game very well, just a little more power would be just perfect and like you, I think she could be seriously a top 3 player or even more.

I'm not surprised. But why did she get a WC then? That's weird, they want to show they understand their mistake, but at the same time it seems they are not happy about Peer playing here.

When the "drama" happened 3 years ago, the WTA imposed on the organizers to give a WC to Peer the next year, whatever her ranking. Maybe it was actually applicable for several years, or maybe they want to prove their good faith now.

DOHA, Qatar - We collected questions for Agnieszka Radwanska on our Twitter page and gave them to the Polish No.1 to answer. Here are the results...

@Fabry__ what is her goal for this season?
"I'm not really thinking about one goal. I think for sure playing the WTA Championships is always the goal but I'm not thinking about whether I'm No.1, No.2, No.3, No.4 - I just want to finish better than last year."

@goncalog9 Hi Aga :) what a fantastic win today! What happened to your shoulder? Cheers from Portugal.
"Thanks. It's been a little up and down with my shoulder. I had a lot of matches in Fed Cup two weeks ago. The surface was pretty slow with heavy balls, so I played a lot of tennis there and after that it was a little worse but now it's getting better so hoping it will not get worse again."

@alibaranseljr why don't u play doubles with your sister ursula?
"We are going to try and play Olympics together. We're going to fight for this Olympics and we'll see if we can make it. So in a few months you might see us. But first we are going to play separately. I'm going to play with Daniela this season as well."

@scots_seahawk I see a lot of Martina Hingis in your play. Was she a favourite of yours? If not, who was your tennis idol?
"Yes for sure. I always loved Martina when I was little. I watched all her matches. I was very happy to play against her once when she came back after the break. She is one of my idols for sure."

Close match once again. She`s in poor form, struggling. The R1 match vs Wozniak was horrible, pushing from both. Aga has to play more aggressive tennis or at least guide the ball with enough depth. The general problem is she clearly lacks power.

Pleeeeeeease. :help: KL were probably promised a top 10 player and after Bartoli withdrew they had to find a replacement.

http://sport.onet.pl/tenis/radwanski-zapowiadalem-ze-miejsce-w-piatce-to-kwes,1,5037601,wiadomosc.html
onet.pl: Is that why Agnieszka is going directly to Malaysia, instead of resting a bit at home? Playing in Kuala Lumpur had not been planned before?

Robert Radwański: We received a very interesting offer from Malaysia and it'd be a sin not to take advantage of it. I'd like to remind you that Isia as a player who finished the last season in top 20 has pretty much no liberty in planning her appearances. Her schedule is limited to a dozen or so tournaments mandatory for the best players. Only once in six months she can play a tournament of the lowest tier, like the one in KL.

Looking at the draw you don't see any particularly dangerous opponents there, so in her form she might go for another trophy. Truth be told we look at it as a form of a bit serious sparring, or an active rest before the big tournaments in IW or Miami. Before she'll fly to the US, she'll probably come home for a day or two.

As always her consistency, excellent footwork/movement and mental strength pulled her through. Julia is a very talented player, had Aga in a lot of trouble with her huge forehand. Typical Aga to show her best tennis in the later stages of the tournament. In R1 she played absolutely shit tennis, passive pushing and many short balls. But Aga came back and won this match after being 3-5 down in 3rd set to win 7-5, and now won the tournament. Amazing!

Były trener Angelique Kerber Paweł Ostrowski uważa, że Borna Bikić, nowy trener Agnieszki Radwańskiej, to zupełnie normalny wybór. Chwali naszą rakietę numer jeden za to, że "stała się już zupełnie samodzielną instytucją".

PRZEGLĄD SPORTOWY: Czy Agnieszka Radwańska się zmieniła? Czy może awansować w światowym rankingu jeszcze wyżej niż na piąte miejsce?

PAWEŁ OSTROWSKI: Zacznijmy tak: Agnieszka stała się spokojniejsza, bardziej stabilna niż kiedyś. Zimna głowa dobrze jej służy. Na pewno ciszej jest również w jej otoczeniu i to dobrze wpływa na formę tenisistki. Tata nie jeździ z naszą tenisistką i to ją w jakiś sposób odblokowało. Również rankingowo.



PS: Z Radwańską podróżuje Borna Bikić. Opinie na jego temat są skrajnie różne...
Niepotrzebnie pojawiają się wokół niego emocje. Radwańscy na pewno nie pozwoliliby sobie na zatrudnienie człowieka bez warsztatu. Myślę, że już przez godzinę od pierwszego spotkania dziewczyny sporo o człowieku wiedziały. Trener tenisowy nikogo nie oszuka, na korcie nie ma żadnego hokus-pokus. Wszystko, co człowiek potrafi, jak się zachowuje, widać jak na dłoni.

PS: No właśnie, co widać?
Człowieka z charakterem, faceta, który miał pozytywny wpływ na taką furiatkę jak Jelena Dokic. Jeśli był w stanie okiełznać i pomóc w powrocie do pierwszej setki takiej zawodniczce, na pewno sporo potrafi. A co do samego odbijania i umiejętności czysto praktycznych – ma je takie same jak inni szkoleniowcy. Może być również sparingpartnerem.



PS: A przedstawiano go niemal jak „wilkołaka"
Niepotrzebnie. Gdyby coś było nie tak, Agnieszka zwolniłaby go po piętnastu minutach. Ona stała się już absolutnie samodzielną instytucją.



PS: Radwańska przebywa teraz w Kuala Lumpur. Dobrze postąpiła jadąc na Daleki Wschód?
Ależ oczywiście, ta wyprawa ma same plusy. Jest w Malezji gwiazdą, tam wszyscy wokół niej stają na baczność, a jak trzeba „tańczą i śpiewają". Może trenować tyle, ile chce, również podczas spotkań. Bez żadnych konsekwencji wybierać konkretne warianty - na przykład grę przy siatce czy uderzenia ze wznoszącej piłki i wszystkie mecze w turnieju traktować jak sparingi. W tak małym turnieju punkty się dla niej nie liczą. Tak naprawdę to zgrupowanie w luksusowych warunkach, tygodniowy mikrocykl, bezpośrednie przygotowanie startowe. Isia jadąc do Kuala Lumpur zyskała finansowo, ale poza tym doskonale przeanalizowała, co ją czeka. Poza tysiącami kilometrów spędzonymi w samolocie raczej nie dostrzegła zagrożeń.
