Radwanska struggling in semifinals this year

I think Agnieszka needs to look in the mirror why the poor performances in semifinals this year? Serena and Carla destroyed her very embarrassing loses in the semifinals of Australian open and middle east. Now losing easily to a low ranked German. I know clay is Aga worst surface but this is a huge disappointment this loss. She needs to get some teeth in her game. The serve especially the second one needs to improve. Sadly I have to agree with the people who do not see Aga winning a slam. She has not made the adjustments like Kerber did. Kerber looks thick she looks muscular and very strong these days. Aga looks like a waif. I honestly do not know how a waif can win a slam? The big girls just hit through her.

Change the Slams to RR and allow her to lose a few times. She'll be fine.

Re: Radwanska struggling in semifinals this year

Aga may win a slam at some point but 'struggling'?

She was outplayed, outsmarted, and outmaneovered in every single one of her semifinals, and there was nothing she could have done against her opponents, winning an average of four games per match. I wouldn't call that 'struggling', I'd call that losing to inspired players who are better on the day, and there's no shame in that. She's had a great year and will probably do a lot more.

Re: Radwanska struggling in semifinals this year

We know that, hence why she won the title... the point that poster is trying to make is that you don't win slams after losing your first two matches.

She should do herself a favour and retire.

My thread that I linked to didn't explain the rules of round robin, I wasn't explaining HOW she won based on round robin rules. Rather, I was explaining WHY I think RR is a fair system, even when players lose twice and advance.

The point I'm making is that I don't think she should be ridiculed for losing 2 matches under that system because she was the most deserving player of the title.

Bur why is Aga struggling in the semifinals? Sure Aga opponents player well BUT she played like crap to lose 6-2 6-0 love to Suarez Navarro! Come on people something mental is going on in Aga head she also is 1-4 I'm grand slam semifinals as well. She blew to huge chances to win a slam losing to Lisicki and Cibulkova in 2013 and 2014. Last year disappointment losing to young Garbine Mugaruza. She needs power that is the missing part in Aga game but the girl is so skinny. She looks like a school girl out there being overpowered by women.

I think you are missing the mark completely, there was nothing Aga could do better to win against Siegemund this week, just like there was nothing Halep or Vinci could do, both much better clay court players than Aga.

Aga was the underdog in this match and her losing was no shock.

I think Aga is she is the most accomplished woman NOT to win a slam. She just needs more strength in her game she is too thin. She also needs a better second serve.

I agree, putting on a little bit of muscle mass and increasing her power and also stamina would do wonders for her game, it frustrates me she doesn't put any effort into this.

It's refreshing to see you making sense for once.

Re: Radwanska struggling in semifinals this year

Because the semifinals features the top 4 best players of the week, and if you're only the third or fourth best player remaining each time, you'll lose.
