Val has named her: “Agalicious,” “My Polish Princess” (she shares this royal rank with Caroline Wozniacki)
Birthday: March 6, 1989
In a nutshell: Agnieszka Radwańska is a lithe, fleet-footed, crafty player who drives her opponents to madness with an endless variety of shots delivered in unexpected patterns and from any spot on the court. With her small frame and delicate style, she favors strategy and speed over power. When she’s on her game, she’s a joy to watch, bounding lightly from one end of the court to the other, splashing a rainbow of shots across the canvas, creating a tennis masterpiece.
The lack of force, particularly on serve, makes it difficult for her to consistently take out other top players. Still, with a high ranking of #2 and 20 titles to her name, including the 2015 WTA Finals, Aga remains a contender for more big titles. It is generally considered that her greatest hope for a Slam is at Wimbledon, where her playing style will have the most devastating effect.
One of the highlights of her career came in the 2012 Wimbledon final, in fact, against the legendary Serena Williams. Overwhelmed in the 1st set to a 1-6 scoreline, Aga whipped up a phenomenal 2nd set, doggedly battling for each point, rallying herself to a 7-5 victory. Unable to maintain that stratospheric level of play, she fell 2-6 in the third, but it remains an inspirational performance. We here at Tennis Inside Out hope we’ll soon see her elegantly leap over that final hurdle to Wimby greatness.

Aga’s also not afraid to gloat a little about her famous how-low-can-you-go squat shot on the baseline…

Similar to fast-food junkie Benoit Paire, the slender Radwanska has a surprising food addiction–to cheesecake. In fact, she’s such a fan of U.S. chain The Cheesecake Factory, they became a sponsor of hers in 2014.
