Two weeks ago, Aga didn't even know if she was going to be able to play Melbourne, having been out for almost three months with a stress fracture in her foot. But she popped in at the last minute, survived Kimiko and a busted racquet, and saved two match points today against Peng to advance to the quarterfinals, matching her best result at the Australian Open, winning 75 36 75 in two hours and 44 minutes.
Q. Maybe next time you go into a Grand Slam, you should have no practice and no matches.
AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Yeah, I think I should have surgery before every Grand Slam definitely.
Her reward? Some chick named Kim.
But Aga's playing with no pressure and it seems to suit her.
I think now is no pressure. I just feel very good after my very short off season. Well, I mean, she's a great champion, so I have nothing to lose. So I'm just going to try and play my best tennis and try to win.
Good on ya, Aga.
