Radwanska progresses on rainy day in Montreal
MONTREAL: Agnieszka Radwanska’s hope of claiming the world’s top ranking ahead of the US Open remains alive after she survived a testing first match in the Montreal Cup on Thursday.
The Pole, who is seeded second in the Aug. 4-13 tournament, will replace Victoria Azarenka as World No. 1 if she wins the US$2mil event and the reigning Australian Open champion fails to reach the quarter-finals.
Radwanska, who was stretched all the way by German Mona Barthel on a day of upsets, came from a break down in the final set to win 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-5). — Reuters
