When last time they met in Istanbul, Serena Williams just blew away the Pole with her sheer power and precision-oriented shots and yes, we felt a bit bad for Agnieszka Radwanska, who just could not come up with any resistance against the American hurricane. Well, that contest had Serena written over it but prior to that we saw these two square off against each other in the 2012 Wimbledon finals, where Radwanska showed her true class and added more fans to her ever-swelling fan base with her resilience and determination. Serena started off in her typical style in Wimbledon and did not waste much time to win the first set 6-1. Yes, Radwanska was not 100% fit that day, but Serena was looking way ahead of her opponent. We saw the real Radwanska in the second-set, as the Pole outsmarted the American on many occasions with her guile and baseline-hitting. When no one would have given her a chance against the surging Serena, the Pole clawed back from 4-2 down - in the middle set of the Wimbledon final last year. Though, she lost that title battle that day, we could see her fighting spirit and marvelous presence on court.
They will battle it out again today for a place in the final of the 2013 Sony Open. Gunning for her sixth Miami title, Serena Williams advanced to the semifinals on Tuesday and tied the women's record for career victories in the tournament by beating fifth-seeded Li Na of China 6-3, 7-6 (5). Despite committing six double-faults, Serena rallied to win the encounter in straight sets. With that victory, Serena also improved to 59-7 in the tournament. Steffi Graf, another five-time champion, finished with 59-6 in Miami.
On the other hand, defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska played an incredible behind-the-back backhand, which could be called as a shot of the tournament, in an intriguing quarterfinal contest to beat Belgian player Kirsten Flipkens. Radwanska won the duel with a 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 scoreline on Tuesday to set up a semi-final meeting with Serena Williams. Well, the top-seeded Serena has beaten Radwanska in all four of their previous meetings. Interestingly, the Pole has only won one set against the American in those four meetings.
When asked about her opponent, Radwanska quoted, "I think playing Serena is always a great challenge. We haven't played since last year so I'm really excited about this match." On the other hand, Williams said of Radwanska, “She doesn't miss. She gets every ball back and makes you fight for every single point. So I don't know anything that could be less dangerous."
