Radwanska has had a good year so far with her win-loss record standing at 28-5. She started the year by reaching the semifinals of the Sydney International and then only managed to reach the quarterfinal of the only Grand Slam this year - the Australian Open. She has since, picked her game up and won her eighth WTA title at Dubai, with that she cracked the Top 5 in March and then jumped to the World No.4 spot in the world winning her ninth WTA title in Miami, upsetting Maria Sharapova in the final. Her pulsating three set victory over Na Li in the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix proved why she has jumped the rankings so fast. In the semifinal of it however, she was completely outplayed by World No.1 Victoria Azarenka. She comes into the tournament as one of the favorites along with Azarenka and Sharapova.
Errani has had an outstanding season herself which makes this match an even more intriguing contest. She started the year well when she first reached the quarterfinal at Auckland and then followed that by reaching her career's first quarterfinal of a Grand Slam event. In February she picked up from where she left off and won her third career WTA title at Acapulco. And has continued to do well ever since barring a couple of disappointments at Indian Wells and the Miami Masters. In April she won her fourth and fifth WTA title at Barcelona and Budapest respectively. With her win-loss record at 28-8, coming into this event, the Italian is one of the true dark horses and Radwanska must not take the World No.24 lightly if she has to through the next round.
Having met five times in the past the Poland No.1 leads the Italian by four matches to one.
TennisEarth pick: Expect this to be a highly competitive match with both players firing on all cylinders.
