5 Reasons To Watch AGA In Singapore

2015-10-18


SINGAPORE - The whole year has been building up to this - the WTA's crown jewel event, the pot of gold at the end of the Road To Singapore, the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global. The best and brightest stars of the WTA will be there - including Agnieszka Radwanska.

Here are five reasons you should watch Radwanska in Singapore this year - in person, on TV or online!

1) She knows what it takes to compete with the best at the WTA Finals.
Not only has Radwanska now qualified for the WTA Finals as part of the elite eight every year from 2011 to 2015, something only Petra Kvitova can match, but the Pole also played as an alternate here in 2008 and 2009 - she was called to play one match each of those years, and she won both of them.

2) She's been on fire since the Asian swing began.
Radwanska left the US Open at No.11 on the Road To Singapore leaderboard, but she's put together an incredible 14-2 record since the Asian swing began - which includes titles in Tokyo and Tianjin and a semifinal in Beijing - and she's now No.5 on the leaderboard and the fifth member of the elite eight.

"Coming to Asia I didn't think I had any chance to go to Singapore, and it's been a very good couple of weeks for me," Radwanska said after winning in Tianjin. "Winning Tokyo gave me some chances to go there, and then every match started to matter after that. And I knew if I won here in Tianjin, I'd make it there. But the pressure didn't really feel too big. I could really play my best tennis in Tianjin."

3) Those trick shots.
No matter who she's playing and no matter the end result, one thing's always true - no one lights up a tennis stadium with trick shots like Radwanska. Here's one of her hot shots from Tokyo, here's one of her hot shots from Beijing, and here are her best shots of 2014 - including a few from Singapore.

4) She could become the newest 20 Million Dollar Woman.
Radwanska's title run in Tianjin brought her to $19,373,713 in career prize money - she could cross the $20-million mark in Singapore, something Kvitova could also do (Kvitova is at $19,247,180). Right now there are 11 players in WTA history who have crossed that milestone - see the complete list here.

5) The WTA Finals is an amazing fan experience, and fans love Aga.
With her incredible on-court results and shining personality off the court, Radwanska has been voted WTA Fan Favorite Player the last four years in a row. Can she make it five years in a row this year?
