Here's to a player I like seeing do well!  Agnieszka Radwanska is currently ranked number 11 in the world.

Very smooth game.

Indeed. Between her, Jankovic, chakvetadze and one or two others you have covered my whole wta list of favourite players but she definitely has serious potential.

Whatsup with this whole sibling business anyway? Bondarenko, Radwanska.. who else weren't there a few others?

Radwanska takes out A. Pavlyuchenkova 3 & 2 today.  She gets Kuznetsova next.  This could be a good match.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I really like her game, it's a shame that she gets over looked at the big tournament IMO, I was very impressed with her at Eastbourne, must say I haven't seen any of her at Wimbledon (BBC hasn't shown her matches  ..-) ), I like her game, her personality, she comes across as a really nice girl, because she's not wearing certain outfits her name has not been mentioned at Wimbledon (BBC) I think she is a dark horse at this years big W, I like the fact though she keeps a low profile herself  :cool:

I expect many great things from her in the future!

Yeah, those things certainly do not hurt.  :)

I love how natural her game is.  I am still bummed that I have not gotten to see any of her Big W matches. 
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I have been at work all day and when I last checked Radwanska was down something like 104 in the 3rd set against Kuznetsova!  I just now checked and she won the third set 7-5!!!  Up next is a big challenge though as she has drawn Serena. 
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Well you know who I will be pulling for in this one!  Radwanska has had a great tournament, hopefully she can go home now and enjoy this success. :innocent:

A. Radwanska Interview - 30 June
 
 
Monday, 30 June 2008


Agnieszka Radwanska def. Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-4, 2-6, 7-5


Q. So what were you thinking late into the third set? She gets up on you 4-1 and you start your comeback again.


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Yeah, actually is the fourth round of a Grand Slam so you're just fighting till the last point. Even if I was 4-1 down, with the break, it's hard, because it's the grass, and one break is a lot. But still, you know, we are breaking each other before. I had still the chance, and I did it.


Q. She started playing very aggressive to get to 4-1 and felt like she stopped a little bit playing aggressive, and you seemed to gain control of it again.


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: I mean, in the first set I think I was playing more aggressive. Then from the second set till 4-1 in the third set, she was the boss on the court. But then I was fighting and also trying to play more aggressive like the first set, because this is just the way to win the match. There was like 50/50 in the end.


Q. What are your thoughts on how your game is suited for grass court play?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Actually I like the grass. Actually, I'm doing very good every year. I just like the surface.


Q. What do you like about it?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: I don't know. It's something different than on other surfaces. It's just three tournaments on this surface. It's something special. It's the different one.


Q. What are your thoughts now about playing Serena Williams, and what it will take for you to do well against her?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Well, first of all, you know, I have to play a very good match to beat her. I was playing once against her in Rome, in Berlin, sorry, on the clay court. But now is the grass, so I don't know. I will see.


Q. What's the biggest challenge about her game for you?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: I mean, for sure she is a very great player, so is going to be the next challenge for me, you know, to play her in the quarterfinal in the Grand Slam. You know, I just will enjoy and try my best. I lost against her, so I'll try to do something tomorrow I guess.


Q. Do you still feel like a young player who is happy to be in the quarterfinals, or do you feel like now you've been on the tour for a couple years, a former junior champion, and you actually belong at this level with the great players?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: It's hard to say, but for sure I'm top 15, so it's the third or fourth round is something, you know, what I have to do, I mean, for me. But for sure the quarterfinal, it's a big success because I beat someone who is higher than me, top five player, so...


Q. Do you like to play against Serena when she's the favorite and maybe people don't think you have too much chance? Are you happier than when people think you're the one who is going to win?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: For sure it's a bit easier for me. Nothing to lose. So she is the favorite. But sometimes it is very hard. If she's playing very well, it's hard to do anything. So you're just losing, losing till the end. We'll see. Depends for her.


Q. I don't know who your coach is, but does your sister help you at all with advice?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Not really. I mean, I know Serena and I know how she's playing. For sure I saw a bit of my sister match against Serena, so I know what I have to do. I just have to play, you know, aggressive, and that's it.


Q. Can you talk about your relationship with your father and how you separate the father/daughter from the coach and the student.


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: It's hard to explain because my father's coaching me 14 years already, so it's long time. I think it's just my father everywhere, even on the court. I'm not calling you coach, so...


Q. When you're done with matches, when do you stop talking about tennis with your father and just talk about other things?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: We're not talking so much, you know, about the tennis or about the matches or practice. So just talking about something else because it's too much.


Q. Is he easy on you or sometimes he's easy and sometimes not so easy?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: I mean, he's normal coach. Of course it's a different relation with the coach and player or, you know, father and daughter. But, I mean, it's hard to explain, because he's coaching me like from the first practice, so hard to even imagine how can I work with someone else.


Q. How surprised were you to win at Eastbourne?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Very surprised actually because I was injured a little bit in Paris, so my first normal practice was there, in Eastbourne. Then I won four very tough matches and even in the final, you know, it was very hard and it was very tough. But, yeah, was very surprised actually.


Q. Do you remember the first time you saw Serena play? Can you talk about your memories of that?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: I mean, for sure was on TV many years ago, but I cannot remember first time. But long time ago.


Q. Just your images of what you saw of her as a player.


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: I mean, for sure she's a strong player and she can hit the ball, you know, very strong. Even in Berlin she was playing unbelievable against me. I was playing not that bad and I won just four games, so...


Q. What are the biggest strengths of your game that might give Serena the most trouble?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: For sure I cannot play in the middle of the court. You know, just to making her run right left, right, left, and I think that's it.


Q. Are you optimistic?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Depends. But I have nothing to lose. You know, I just did my first quarterfinal at Wimbledon, so I'm already very happy about that. So now I'm just going to the court and try to beat one more good player.


Q. How did you like your chances today before the match?


AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: I was playing her five times before. Even I lost her here last year. But she was playing not that good at Eastbourne. Actually bad.

But then I saw her here, and she was playing much, much better. I expected what I can do on my match, but...

I hope she wins  :whistle: I didn't watch the match today, but I had a sneaky feeling she would win this match, a much tougher match with Serena, and like I say I hope she pulls through this one

Well she is not cocky that is for sure, at least from that interview.  Regardless, I hope it is a good match.  I like both players so it is no major loss for me either way.  I prefer to see Radwanska sneak through this time though.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I'm with you on that one Pawan  :) lets have another shock or two I say.

Great win for Radwanska yesterday over Kuznetsova. Afer losing that 2nd set so easily and being 1/4 down in the decider she did incredibly well to come back. Yes Kuznetsova got tight once again and gave her an opportunity but Radwanska took it with both hands and deserves her spot in the quarters. Now for a win over Serena Williams I say  :)
