0-2 - Won
Barbora Strycova takes on Agnieszka Radwanska in the semifinal of WTA tournament in Sydney.
These two players have met 6 times so far and all 6 matches won Radwanska. Anyway last season they have met 2 times and Strycova managed to take at least one set in both matches, while in their last match in Tokyo she even served for a win so I think she could make some troubles to Radwanska in this game.
Stycova has opened this season very well, has 5-1 record so far, in Auckland she lost to Davis and that is the only game where she has showed some weakness. Here she managed to beat 3 very good players Makarova, Vinci and Wozniacki so I think she could continue with good results.
On the other hand Radwanska was terrible in Shenzhen last week where she lost to Riske and struggled to beat Duan. Here she looks much better, but she is still not playing her best tennis. She looks very poor on her serve games and was broken much more times than usual in this 2 weeks. I think she will not have easy job at all today, Strycova is playing very well at this moment and even she come after long and exhausting match against Wozniacki, Strycova is a great athlete and I think she could provide one more strong performance today so I will take +4.5 games on Strycova.
