At a time where the women’s draw is wide open opportunity knocks and for former Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska you would have thought would be one of those looking for that opportunity but so far it’s been a horrendous season for the former world number 2 now at 10 in the world comes into Wimbledon with a 11-10 win/loss ratio after her defeat to Lauren Davis in Eastbourne where she is usually effective on the grass but lasted not long over an hour into the week.
There are moments in a career where you think this could propel a player going forward or on the other hand could halt them. Back in 2015 Aga was the surprise champion at the WTA Finals in Singapore and I asked the question can Aga push on and in all honesty she hasn’t.
At the moment Aga is ranked at 40 in the world on the Road to Singapore and unless something changes quickly Singapore will not happen for her and the ranking will continue to deteriorate.
Aga’s game is about flair and producing those brilliant shots most can dream about but it lacks that steel from the baseline and players aren’t afraid, yes they may get lobbed at some point but it hasn’t been a sustainable style of playing for some time and we saw against Lauren Davis the lack of impact on the baseline and during her own service games just a lack of movement and where the rest of the tour is right now is quite far ahead of Aga and a ranking of 10 I would say is false.
First up for Aga is Jelena Jankovic and to be honest I don’t see her coming through that match at all, I’d love to be proved wrong but the way the season has gone something incredible would have to happen!
