Wimbledon. Williams was supposed to be, will Vesnina
Radwanska (WTA 3) won the first round of Slovakian Magdalena Rybarikova (WTA 122) 6-3, 6-3 in just over half an hour. Polka well served by, prevailed in longer exchanges and most of the match in control of events on the court, though several times she gave a hard-breaking ball shoot rival. – Match far more stubborn than the score suggests – said Agnieszka, who before Wimbledon complained of fatigue. Between January and played 63 games, garnering three titles and earned over $ 2 million.
– I would like to finally reach the semifinals of the Grand Slam, that’s my goal – highlighted the 23-year-old Polish woman who has reached quarter-finals five times. In 2008-09, succeeded her in London, but always on the way there were American sisters Venus and Serena Williams.
The fate of this year also pushed toward the older Radwanska of American sisters. They had to face since the second round, but an American suddenly thrown out of the tournament yesterday, Elena Vesnina (WTA 79). Venus for several months struggling with energy sapping autoimmune disease – Sjögren’s syndrome. Since that time, not playing that well, lost in speed and dynamics. With Vesnina often was wrong, she could not speed up, sometimes standing in place. – I went through a lot already in my life and I continue to try to get back to tennis. The main thing is do not lose hope and good humor – said after the defeat of 31-year-old American who at Wimbledon only once were eliminated in the first round – in 1997 government .. Pole Magdalena Grzybowska, for which the end it was the biggest career success.
With so badly playing Radwanska Williams probably also cope without problems. It is difficult to judge whether Vesnina be an easy opponent. 25-year-old Russian woman was born in Lvov, but the child lives in Sochi on the Black Sea. Cheerful, always smiling, on his website says he likes sushi, Brad Pitt and red roses. I once coached her Andrei Chesnokov, who became famous for reaching the semifinals of Roland Garros in 1989, blonde-haired Jelena actually has always been overshadowed by his more famous and successful compatriots – Maria Sharapova, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Vera and Maria Kirilenko Zwonariewej. Ugrała never so much on the court and outside it or not earning enough from ads and sponsorships, though neither talent nor her beauty is missing. Dissolving in the crowd, however, is still only the ninth missile in Russia. Regularly playing in the Fed Cup team, because – unlike some of stars – from obligations not to blink. Six times occurred in WTA singles finals, but all lost, because a few seasons put firmly on the doubles. In it achieves the best results – played in three finals Slam triumph in Indian Wells. Like any deblistka feels good ball, he can conjure wolejami, but the basis for its strong tennis is a game with the baseline.
Last year, Radwanska ograła Vesnina on the hard court in Toronto, but I’ve fallen in Rome after three jam sets. That match, however, was the era of the old Agnes, who rode to tournaments with his father, quickly irritated, was sometimes irritated and offended. Since then a lot has changed. Coach Thomas introduced Wiktorowski peace that zaprocentował great autumn and spring, and in that Radwanska has almost never had mishaps with tennis players listed below.
If the Vesnina managed to win, you can even speculate that before the Pole is preferably open ladder. Daniela Hantuchova (Third Round), Nadia Petrova (fourth round) and Samantha Stosur (quarter) – the highest on her rivals on the way to the semifinals.
Debut at Wimbledon Sandra Zaniewska (WTA 160) seeded fought bravely with the no. 30 Peng Shuai Chinese woman, but eventually capitulated 2-6, 7-6 (7-3), 3:6.
Great in his Grand Slam debut, presented himself Jerzy Janowicz (ATP 139). 21-year-old Pole, to which luck smiled on the draw, used them and defeated 3:6, 6:3, 6:3, 6:3 Bolelliego Italian Simone (ATP 118). The victory will bring him to the very top one hundred ranked ATP. Janowicz wandered so far mainly challengerach, but if he can get through, it will finally be able to compete more regularly in the major events of ATP. Since the days of Wojciech Fibak only two Poles managed to qualify for hundreds of ATP – Lukasz Kubot and Michael Przysiężny. Another rival, „Jerzyk” will be serving great Latvian Ernests Gulbis (ATP 87), who sensationally ograł rozstawionego of no. Czech Tomas Berdych 6. A native of Lodz, Janowicz is no chance. This year has already ograł Gulbis in the Challenger in Rome, but that meeting was held on the court by natural gas.
Sandra Zaniewska (WTA 160), also debuted in Szlemie, fought bravely with the seeded with a no. 30 Peng Shuai Chinese woman, but eventually capitulated 2-6, 7-6 (7-3), 3:6.
In addition to Berdych and Venus Williams, the stars on the first day rather not have failed – easily won, among others Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova.
