Agnieszka Radwanska is looking in imperious form as she progressed to the quarter-finals of the AEGON International after beating Eugenie Bouchard 6-3, 6-3 yesterday.
The world no.3 rarely looked in trouble against the former Wimbledon finalist; and at times Radwanska showed the watching public that it might just be the year that the 27-year-old wins her first Grand Slam.
It was Radwanska’s all round game which caught the eye; but once again her serving was on point which allowed her to cruise to a straightforward straight sets victory.
Preparation for Wimbledon is going well
The closest Radwanska came to winning Wimbledon was when she was one set away against Serena Williams; but 2012 wasn’t to be her year; but playing some impressive at Eastbourne her chances look good for the main event of the tennis season.
Speaking about her victory over Bouchard, Radwanska said: “I think that was much better match than yesterday, I think it was a good match from the beginning till the end.”
The serving was always going to be key; both players have big serves, and before the game it was billed as the ‘battle of the serves’, but it was Radwanska who certainly performed better of the two when it came to that department.
“I think I was serving pretty good, I think that’s also very helping, especially in that kind of match,” said Radwanska.
Momentum is certainly building for Radwanska; she won Eastbourne back in 2008, and finished runner-up to Belinda Bencic last year.
But speaking about her preparations for Wimbledon, Radwanska said: “I think every match like this gives you a lot of confidence. It’s easier afterwards in the end of the tournament or going to the Grand Slams.”
It will be interesting to see how the 27-year-old does against Dominika Cibulkova today, if she wins a place in the semi-finals beckon and from there who knows what the next couple of weeks will hold for the Pole.
