Agnieszka Radwanska Defeated by Ajla Tomljanovic

Already, the world of tennis saw a major change with Serena Williams facing Garbine Muguruza. The latter spoke of how the time was right to welcome the new breed of players in the great game. 

Similarly, Ajla Tomljanovic , who is a Croatian gave Agnieszka Radwanska the curve a day ago. And Li Na who held the #2 position lost big time to Kristina Mladenovic. 

Therefore, from the looks of it, the three players at the acme seem to have been substituted by some young and eager talent. And this is the first time such an event has transpired in the history of tennis. 

Meanwhile, Victoria Azarenka is out of the game due to an injury she is currently suffering from. Radwanska was a weak player and no match for the assertive Tomlhanovic who soundly thrashed her in the final round. 

The few opportunities that Radwanska got to avenge her losing streak were missed one by one as Tomljanovic closed in for the kill. 

However, Radwanska is adamant that she just didn’t play that ably on Friday. She has in fact refused to acknowledge that the defeat is final and said that it is just a temporary hurdle that has come up along the way.  

“It doesn’t mean if first and second seed lost, doesn’t mean the third one is going to win,” Radwanska said, adding, “I just didn’t play good enough today to win the match.”

Tomljanovic is a new and upcoming talent who is just bursting with energy and enthusiasm. Since she is fresh to the field, she faced the media and reporters after the event with some apprehension. 

But, Tomljanovic says it went like a breeze. It’s been over 365 days since she decided to enter the game and she has never looked back. Her confidence is such that she feels on top of the world. 

“After seeing the two first seeds go out, you kind of feel like, ‘I can do this, too,’ ” Tomljanovic said. “I grew up with these girls that are beating them.”

She originally trained at Chris Evert’s academy in Florida. She recounted how both Evert and another coach named David Taylor saw a lot of potential in her due to her high self esteem and passion for the game. 

“He definitely saw me as an aggressive player, someone who right off the bat should be the one dictating, since I’m a big girl and have a big serve,” she said, adding, “The biggest thing was he really thought I was good.”

The fact that they believed in her all the way led to her constant winning streak. She attributes what she has achieved today to their mentoring and camaraderie.

ESPN at Wimbledon, Week Two: Lots Of Excellence, One Error

The story of ESPN’s performance in week one at Wimbledon is archived here. Why was this account so lengthy? Very simply, ESPN (and at times, ESPNEWS) covered Wimbledon with only one television channel at one time. ESPN covered tennis until the early World Cup match came on, and ESPNEWS then filled in. However, the WorldWide Leader didn’t (and doesn’t) devote two channels to the first week. Hence, one channel was left with the large resp ...
