Good breakthrough tournament for Ula but I think Woznacki should beat her in 2.
cw will take this one in two, with or without shoulder injury.Ula can outhit her and Wozniacki is rather average at any part of court(except net of course), it will be interesting match and I beg it to be televised.
she's not popular at all. average person wouldn't recognize her, and she's not considered polish here. although, whenever there's her match televised or you hear sport news on radio/tv commentators always say: 'caroline wozniacki, danish player with polish roots,...'cw will take this one in two, with or without shoulder injury.
on a separate note, i have always wondered how popular is cw in poland?
I am encouraged that Urszula feels motivated. Whatever the result; it is a good tournament for herfrom IW blog
Good luck Ula & Caro. Have fun :bounce: Kick butt :devil: after your are done Have some icecreams together :lick:The oddest thing happened during Urszula Radwanska-Alexa Glatch match out on Court 4. At game point Glatch up 4-2 in the second set, the chair umpire called a let out of nowhere and then took it back. At first, it appeared that the only reason why she yelled out “let” was reflexively, because she had just called one on the point prior off a Glatch serve and she still must have been thinking about it. Apparently, a ball came out of the crowd, but it never disrupted play, so she called the let, and unfairly took it back even though she spoke before Radwanska missed her forehand. The Polish teen understandably lost her cool, chiding her for a good three minutes and finally throwing her racket into the chair.
“I was really pissed,” she said. “Maybe that's why I played better later. For me it was actually during my shot. She said she called after, but I couldn't do anything. Actually I was angry maybe two games later and then it was okay.
How Radwanska was able to regain her composure after kicking herself during the entire set is befuddling. But, U-Rad pulled a quick U-Turn. In fact, even before the let call, she has cracked the ground extremely hard with her racket on six occasions after losing points, finally breaking it. She may not have sister’s Aggie’s calm demeanor, or on smarts, but she’s fights like hell and is extremely scrappy.
“Well, right now it's not that bad,” she said. “When I was smaller, like when I was 14 or 15 it was really bad. Like I was destroying the racquets and screaming. Now I'm trying to control this.”
In the end, she came through 6-3, 7-6 (3) and now will face Caroline Wozniacki, who bested her in the Wimbledon junior final. That’s a victory that might be appear to be beyond her at this point, but if she stays as low to the ball and moves as fluidly as she in her upset of Svetlana Kuznetsova and in her defeats over Michelle Larcher de Brito and Glatch, she’ll push the Dane very hard.
“She's my close friend,” she said of the Polish speaking Wozniacki. “We know each other. At junior Wimbledon, I lost against her, but I had a match point, so I don't want to remember that match. I’ll be ready.”
