Radwanska turns on the magic again

US Open Tennis; Leigh-Ann Ludwig; Leigh's Lounge; #leighslounge; #USOpen; #USOpen2016; #Tennis; #SSTennis; #SuperSport; @USOpen; @SuperSportAgnieszka Radwanska has a habit of “pulling the rabbit out of the hat” when it really counts, and her match against Naomi Broady of Britain yesterday proved no different.

Broady, who is ranked 82nd in the world, serving at 120 mph and playing some unbelievable tennis, soon found herself 5-2 up against the No. 4 seed.

But, there’s a reason why Aga is known as the “magician” and holds the “Shot of the year” title for the past three years. She has an incredible knack of reading the game and fighting back, and soon found herself forcing a tie breaker in the first set and having to save four set points before Broady hit a forehand unforced error to hand her the set.

Broady was first out of the starting blocks in the second set, and soon notched up a 2-0 lead. Radwanska fought back to make it 3-2, and after Broady drew level at 3-3, Radwanska shifted gears and managed to win the next three games and the match, 7-6(11) 6-3.

Radwanska’s third round opponent will be Caroline Garcia of France, who defeated Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic 4-6 6-4 6-4.
