Johanna Konta vs Radwanska
What a match in the start of the tournament in Sydney- Radwanska will meet Johanna Konta.
Both of them have three meetings and the Polish player leads 2:1. The last meeting was in last year's final in Sydney when Konta beat her opponent 6:4 6:2 and won the title. Last week they played in Brisbane and Auckland and won two matches, but lost in the QFs. Konta was close to beat Svitolina but received an injury and that influenced on her performance and she has to retire in the 3rd set. She was almost unmistakable in the first set winning it 6:1. If she is absolutely fit for this match, she has really good chances against Radwanska.
The Polish player showed in Auckland once again she is far away from her best days. Her serve can be broken even by players out of top 300 but she continues to be good on return and made a lot of breaks against Haddad Maia. Konta's serve can't be compared with the Brazilian and their play from the baseline. In the QF Radwanska lost so unexpectedly by Sachia Vickery with 6:2 6:2.
I can't be 100% sure Konta will be at her max level, but if she's okay her chances to win are high. I like Konta as a player so much and expect her to progress, but this is very tricky match and everything can happen.
