A tantalizing quarter-final that few saw coming is set to take place on Tuesday afternoon at the All England Club, as Agnieszka Radwanska and Madison Keys complete to determine who will advance to the final four at Wimbledon. This will mark the fourth time that the two comeptitors will cross paths on the professional tour and the second time at the Championships. Radwanska holds a 3-0 head-to-head record against Keys and will look to maintain that undefeated streak en route to the semi-final round.
After a terrible start to her season, Agnieszka Radwanska has started to look like her old self again. Following solid weeks in Nottingham and Eastbourne, Radwanska now has an opportunity to reach the final four at Wimbledon following her straight sets victory against Jelena Jankovic, who was playing fantastic tennis in her own regard. She eventually beat the Serb 7-5, 6-4.
“I think I was a little bit nervous at the beginning,” Keys said. “She was playing really well and I wasn’t playing as smart as I wanted. “But I sat down and gave myself a talking to, I started playing my shots and kind of got myself back in control.”
Radwanska’s quarter-final meeting will come against Keys, who reached that stage of the tournament after rallying from a set down to beat Olga Govortsova in three sets. After a slow start, Keys picked up the pace and managed to secure the 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 win.
This will mark the fourth time that the two competitors will cross paths on the professional tour and the second time at the Championships. Radwanska holds a 3-0 head-to-head record against Keys and will look to maintain that undefeated streak en route to the semi-final round.
“I think she’s an incredible fighter. She is a great mover, and her hands are unbelievable,” Keys added. “You know, I feel like she’s always there. She makes you play four extra balls. You know, she’s a really tough opponent.”
Prediction: Agnieszka Radwanska in Three Sets
