  • MASSIVE DISAPPOINTMENT FOR AGGIE
    Aggie Radwanska has been speaking about her defeat to China's Peng Shuai.
    The Pole has reached at least the quarter-finals at every other grand slam but has not made it past the fourth round here.

    It always is disappointing (to go out), especially in the first week of a grand slam. But I think here it's not really a new thing for me unfortunately. I really want to know the answer. Then maybe I will find a way to play better here and just try another way to be in the second week. There is just something here that I can't really pass those rounds. I have couple of years to try. Hopefully one day I will do it."
