Beijing R3 - [3] A. Radwanska def. [Q] P. Hercog 6-0 6-2

The big question here is:

How much of this match was Aga playing well?

vs

How much of this match was Polona tired from coming through Q?

Polona R1 - 88% First serve points won

Polona R2 - 78% First serve points won

Polona R3 - 46% First serve points won

Aga

Re: Beijing R3 - [3] A. Radwanska def. [Q] P. Hercog 6-0 6-2

This score is really unfair for Hercog. She did many UE's in key moments. She did great job, defeated VIP
Aga played not bad. Some rallies were really good. Well done.

Re: Beijing R3 - [3] A. Radwanska def. [Q] P. Hercog 6-0 6-2

the score doesn't reflect the match at all.Very solid play from Aga, especially on big points, but Hercog showed great things as well.Just not realistic enough when she had some chances

Polona had her right thumb taped at 2-0 1st set.

Tactics is key against Polona. Got to get her coming forward. She's very solid from the baseline.

The vastly superior player won. Someone had to bring Hercog back to reality.

Re: Beijing R3 - [3] A. Radwanska def. [Q] P. Hercog 6-0 6-2

Yeah I thought Polona actually had some great point patterns and shots but clearly she is not used to what Aga can do defensively and proactively. Some of the returns Aga was hitting were just ridiculously tough and she kept Hercog guessing a lot. I thought Aga was doing a great job of mixing in the backhand down the line today and had some very good slices of her own. I don't remember which game it was in but Aga redirected a hard hit forehand of Hercog's back down the line just a few inches over the net and near the sideline which was just spectacular.

Re: Beijing R3 - [3] A. Radwanska def. [Q] P. Hercog 6-0 6-2

First set stats were amaazing for Aga - 9 W and just 1 UE.

Good match overall.

Now it's time for revenge.

Re: Beijing R3 - [3] A. Radwanska def. [Q] P. Hercog 6-0 6-2

Oh and yeah I was really impressed how well Aga volleys shots that are hit right into her body. That just shows great racquet head control. Polona definitely has some big forehands and quite nice touch too but it was not enough against today's opponent. Ivanovic would give her the errors she needed. Radwanska is not gonna miss much even when going for some pretty aggressive shots of her own.

I think Ana lost to Hercog because she knows she has no chance anymore against Aga

Re: Beijing R3 - [3] A. Radwanska def. [Q] P. Hercog 6-0 6-2

Well, I think Polona played well, except for all the important points (i.e. when facing break points and when having game points on her own)
Her serve wasn't as good as in previous matches, but I think that her return games were better than before... maybe only because of Aga's club-level 2nd serve She has to improve it if she wants to defeat Kerber.

Re: Beijing R3 - [3] A. Radwanska def. [Q] P. Hercog 6-0 6-2

Polona actually played a pretty good match. She hit a number of amazing shots and her winners vs errors margin was a very respectable -1. That she only had two games to show for what was really a very decent performance that would have beaten most of the 60 players in this main draw was rather cruel. Even so, Polona had a fine tournament and I have very good vibes about how 2014 is going to turn out for her.

Unfortunately for Polona, her opponent decided today to play one of her best matches in quite some time. Always fun watching Aga when she is playing well and today she was looking fresh and totally in control of her game. Nice.
