Sydney International. R1 Prediction
(4) ?? Johanna Konta vs ?? Agnieszka Radwanska
It is hard to know what to expect in this match given the way Konta and Radwanska ended week 1 of the season. There are injury question marks around Konta, the 2017 Sydney champion was forced to retire from her quarter-final match in Brisbane last week with a hip injury. Conversely, Radwanska produced a lacklustre performance to get beaten by Sachia Vickery in straight sets in her quarter-final match in Auckland.
If Konta is fit and ready, she should be too strong for Radwanska. Konta’s clinical, deep baseline hitting coupled with a much stronger serve and a more dangerous return should see her beating Radwanska on a the quick hard courts in Sydney.
