History at the Aegon International

When Radwanska steps onto the court in Eastbourne in June, she will be doing so for the tenth year in a row. The world number two made her first appearance at the Aegon International in 2007 and since then has had her share of success.

Radwanska won the tournament on the second time of asking in 2008. The Polish player defeated Nadia Petrova in three sets to pick up the title. After winning the title at the seaside coast Radwanska did not manage to make it to another final, until last year. This time around the world number two could not claim the trophy, as she fell at the final hurdle to teenager Bencic.

The Polish number one, will be hoping to go one step further than last year and win the trophy for the second time. This would be a great way to mark her tenth year anniversary at the seaside coast.
