But conditions were awful for a more agressive player , wind was blowing balls away from its trajectory
if it was bothering someone, it should clearly bother Radwanska more, who proved in her entire career that her poor-paced shots are extremely prone to wind, and she tends to have next to no control over them if it blows hard. if it wasn't bothering someone, it should be Roberta, cause middle-paced top-spin shots are perfect for such conditions. Still, she hit numerous shanks that landed in the service box, forcing Aga to come to the net after some poor slice on full stretch, allowing Roberta to hit an easy passing shots. We've seen that numerous times in the match. Roberta should have broken Aga to even the first set, but this is the only regret she can have.
