Agnieszka Radwanska has been officially acknowledged as Poland's tennis queen with a rapturous public reception back home upon her return from a title in Miami. The No. 4 who beat Maria Sharapova for the trophy admitted she was surprised at her public reception.
"I didnít expect the crowds at the airport," said the 30-4 player this season, whose only losses in 2012 have come against No. 1 Victoria Azarenka. "My game is proof that you don't have to serve at 210 kph to win.Ē
Radwanska, who also won Dubai in February and claimed back-to-back Asian titles last autumn, doesn't boast the big physical tools of other top players but is considered court-smart and strategic in the style of former No. 1 Martina Hingis.
The new member of the WTA elite is now focusing on lifting her ranking even farther. "I'm very happy that I can be for the first time top four. It's still far to No. 3, 2, or even 1.But I hope I'm gonna play like this on a really good level in hopes of reaching top three very soon."
