Radwanska Cruises Into the Second Round

Former finalist, Agnieszka Radwanska has kicked off her 2014 Wimbledon campaign with a comprehensive 6-2 6-1 victory over Romanian qualifier Andreea Mitu in just 48 minutes of play.

Radwanska led 4-2 before rain ended proceedings on day 1. When the match recommenced on day 2, the Pole took little to finish off the opening set. Radwanska would hold to love before breaking to 15 to take the opening set 6-2.

Before no time the number four had raced away to a 5-0 lead. Mitu managed to hold in sixth game to avoid a bagel set but Radwanska was ultimately untroubled, serving out the set 6-1. Mitu possessed no weapons that could hurt the world number 4, when she tried to make something happen she was too rushed and that played in to the hands of Radwanska. The Pole served particularly well throughout the match, firing down 7 aces with a healthy first serve percentage of 74. It was a solid performance from Aga, hitting 16 winners to just 6 unforced errors, she did what she needed to do. Radwanska will face a much tougher task in the second round when she meets Australian Casey Dellacqua who is currently in career best form.
