Radwanska eyes winning return

Agnieszka Radwanska is determined to move on from her Wimbledon disappointment when she begins her campaign at the Bank of the West Classic (Radwanska 13/8f – Tournament Outright).

The Polish star looked on course to win her first Grand Slam when she reached the semi-finals at SW19 as the highest-ranked player left in the event.

Serena Williams’ shock exit to Sabine Lisicki opened the door for the world number four, but that was then firmly shut as the 23-year-old German star pulled off another memorable victory in downing Radwanska in their last-four contest.

Victory over Lisicki would have set up a final clash with Marion Bartoli, against whom she owns a 7-0 winning career record, but it was not to be and the 2012 Wimbledon finalist has now set her sights on winning the Californian event.

She is set take on 21-year-old American star Christina McHale in the early hours of Wednesday morning BST and is a strong favourite to progress, having lost just three games in two previous victories over the world number 94 (Radwanska 8/11, McHale 11/10 – Match Prices).

And the Krakow-born star is now keen to draw a line under events at the All-England Club after admitting that she was carrying an injury during the grass-court season.

“It was a huge chance this year,” she said. “Definitely I had a chance to win a Grand Slam, but it is in the past now.

“It’s always disappointing and of course I was sad that I didn’t use the opportunity that I had but I wasn’t 100 percent fit.”
