(January 16, 2013) World No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska extended her 2013 unbeaten streak to 11 after completing a routine 6-3, 6-3 win over Romania’s Irina-Camelia Begu at the Australian Open on Wednesday in Melbourne.
”I’m very happy to be playing my best tennis at the start of the year,” Radwanska said after winning the match.
”It’s always great to win in two sets.”
Radwanska impressed spectators by hitting a left-handed forehand as well as a between the legs shot, something she said she used to practice as a child.
The Polish woman has been on fire since the start of the year capturing Auckland and Sydney titles. She’ll play the winner of the Ksenia Pervak – Heather Watson in the third round.
Fifth seed Angelique Kerber of Germany also moved into to the third round holding back a first set challenge by Lucie Hradecka 6-3, 6-1 in 69 minutes.
“It was very hot today than the last match I played,“ said Kerber. “(It)was not so windy out there. But she’s a tough opponent, and you need to be ready for the whole match, because she’s playing the ball very hard and deep in the court.
“So I was just try moving very good and just play my game. Yeah, I’m happy that I won the match in two sets.”
Keber will play either American wild card Madison Keys or Austria’s Tamira Paszek next.
