Agnieszka Radwanska Defeats Angelique Kerber to Reach Wimbledon Final
World No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska reached the Wimbledon final, defeating World No. 8 Angelique Kerber in her first career Major semifinal, 6-3, 6-4.
“In the beginning I was a bit nervous, of course,” Radwanska said. “I think we both were. But then after a couple of games I was really feeling good, of course. I really had tough quarterfinal, so it’s always tough to rest for just one day and come back and trying to play the best tennis. But I think I really did great job today.”
Radwanska hit 20 winners and just six unforced errors in the match, also managing to win 59% of Kerber’s second serve points. She was a perfect three-for-three on break points.
“My plan was playing aggressive tennis and make the points, but she moved very well and makes not so many mistakes, so it was really tough to play really constant, you know, and make winners against her today,” Kerber said. “But I try to fighting until the last point. I mean, yeah, what can I say? I mean, she played a very, very good match.
Radwanska will face Serena Williams in the final. If Radwanska wins, she will claim the World No. 1 ranking. If she does not, she will move up one spot to No. 2.
