Agnieszka Radwanska is the top seed in this week’s Brussels Open, and a title success could send her to No. 2 in the world rankings. The Pole’s tennis this season has been consistently superb, and it’s hard to see anyone getting the better of her here.
Radwanska took some time out of her schedule in Brussels to speak to reporters about her success this year and this week’s competition. “I'm very happy because I've managed to play my best tennis since the beginning of the year and I've improved my ranking so much in just a couple of months,” said Radwanska, talking about her rapid ascension of the WTA rankings.
“But it's funny, because I haven't really changed anything - I've been practicing in the same place, with the same people, doing the same stuff.”
“It's my first time in Brussels - I think it's my first time in Belgium, but I'm not sure, if I've been here before it was a long time ago and I don't remember!” she added.
Radwanska will meet Lesia Tsurenko of the Ukraine in round two. Tsurenko is ranked just outside the top hundred, and has been in decent form this year. Still, it’s very likely that she’ll fall short on Wednesday, with Radwanska in such great form.
