    Agnieszka Radwanska has a tennis game that so classic that she would have been very dangerous in any era. All of her terrific skill and talent has not been quite enough to to take a major in today's power age. She is still #3 in the world. Watch how great it is to watch a graceful lady play tennis.

    Quiet Speed -

    A superstitious desire to avoid jinxing Radwanska compelled me to refrain from replying to Your post during the French Open but - as always - she managed to "jinx" herself.

    Radwanska may possess loads of highly impressive technical skills but she is perennially undone by her fragile confidence, which shatters like a delicate champagne flute struck by a baseball bat the moment things get a bit difficult. Well, that and her mini-cork pop-gun calibre serve that's more suited to a fifteen year old girl taking a few tennis lessons for fun than to a top five ranked professional. And her habit of simply returning the ball straight back to opponents in the hope they shall commit an unforced error...

    The moment her match against the 93rd ranked (!!!) Pironkova was delayed due to rain with Radwanska up 6-3 and 3-0 I feared the very worst. As usual, my fears were justified for she only managed to win three games when play resumed the next day.
