Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

She looked gingerly, unsure of herself, puffy balls all over the place, dumping many of them in the middle of net.

Was is it just Li Na's power, using the classic "how to beat a pusher" strategy.

Re: Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

Li Na played well but I was surprised at Agnieszka she didn`t play well ON THE BIG POINTS. And that was the shock! Agnienzka had so many leads in the first set and blew it! She had a 3-2 lead could not consolidate, then she had a 5-4 lead serving for the first set and gets broken at love! Li Na played okay, but Agnieszka didn`t bring it today she needed to play a more aggressive form of tennis. I felt like Agnieszka thought Li was just going to spray balls and did somewhat. But I believe Agnieszka blew her chances that`s why she lost she wasn`t aggressive enough. This is so disappointing four time an Australian Open quarterfinalst this result is a huge disappointment!

I don't think so.

I am not arguing she is a power players like the of the top 3, but usually her shots have more zip or punch than what I saw today.
She played like someone who had a long, tiring match in previous round and did not get enough rest.

Re: Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

I thought she did well until the sun came up. Heat's probably an issue since she's running so much

Re: Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

I think it has a lot to do with how consistently deep Li Na's rally ball was, very few players on tour are capable of that, another notable example being Azarenka who can also make Radwanska look helpless. It probably messes with the timing of her strokes.

Re: Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

I don't know if she was tired; in fact I don't think she was. I think she was very nervous and it took quite a bit of energy and accuracy from her. She also lacked her usual concentration. I think she feels pressure to win a slam.

Re: Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

When you win 13 straight matches or whatever the number was one day you´ll get tired, especially with her retrieving running all over the place.

I wonder when she has the serve and ability to serve out the set when encountering a power baseliner... Aga is too passive today and nervous, at the end she gave up. That's all.
Remember she played just one more 60 60 match than Li...

Re: Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

Worst I've seen her play for a while, she was incredibly poor, seemed lost, footwork wasn't right and the errors were sloppy.

Hopefully she bounces back though, it's definitely not her normal standard as some are saying, she didn't get the Wimbledon final because of a fluke, and going 13 matches unbeaten at the start of this year is no fluke either.

Re: Radwanska: Why Was She So Physically Weak Today?

Radwanska is never a powerful player, but she's very good at reflecting opponents' strokes, the faster and stronger she receives the ball, the faster and stronger it goes back too. Li Na realised it after first two games and reduced her usual stroking power, only used full strength on killer shots, that's probably why Aga looked more puffy and made more errors today than usual.

You see the movies "The Avengers"? It's what Phil Coulson said to Loki.

"You lack commitment."

She lacks commitment. Bring it to her at all, and she goes into her shell. It happens that her level of skill is so high, it takes a lot to intimidate her, but once you do, she's over.

Na played the same amount, with one less (the 60 60 bagel in Sydney final) And Li is 30, Aga is twenty sth only...
