Twitter: @ARadwanska

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 14 titles to her name, Aga remains a contender for a future Slam.

One of the highlights of her career came in the 2012 Wimbledon final, 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.

In what was considered a genius move, Aga hired former champion Martina Navratilova as her “coaching consultant” in December 2014. The hope was that the 9-time Wimbledon winner would be able to help Aga get that extra edge over her competitors and succeed in the Slams. Unfortunately, the pairing did not go as well as planned. After a 4th-round loss to Venus Williams at the 2015 Australian Open, Martina had some harsh words for her new charge, aired on Tennis Channel.

Tweets from Martina about Aga 2015 AO Four months later, the partnership dissolved because Martina was “too busy.” The sad result is that the brief collaboration seems to have made the Polish player even more uncertain about her game. Where she once acted intuitively on court, she now often seems lost. Coaching changes usually lead to transition periods like this, and we can only hope that Aga is soon able to incorporate any new ideas into the core awesomeness she already possesses.

On to the fun stuff. 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.

Our beloved Polish Princesses stick together…

Aga appreciates her fans…

She’s not afraid to have a little fun…

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

And not afraid to make bold fashion choices…

And if you can still focus, here are some videos to give you an idea of the woman in action!
