Radawanska wins Sydney Masters

The Agnieszka Radwanska juggernaut ran over hapless Dominika Cibulkova Friday, as the Pole won the Sydney International to take her unbeaten streak this year to nine ahead of the Australian Open.

The top seed crushed Cibulkova 6-0, 6-0 in just over an hour for back-to-back tournament victories, making the perfect preparation for the year-opening Grand Slam, which starts in Melbourne on Monday.

It was the world number four’s 12th career singles title and she has yet to drop a set this year.

Radwanska overpowered Cibulkova, ranked 14th in the world, breaking her serve six times, winning 68 percent of the points and capitalising on her errors.

Cibulkova, who was unseeded in the tournament, double-faulted on match point to cap a miserable night’s work.

Radwanska, who beat Belgian Yanina Wickmayer in the Auckland Classic final last week, made it two tournaments in a row, with wins in Sydney to give her a boost ahead of Australian Open.


Australian youngster Bernard Tomic will emulate Lleyton Hewitt and Roger Federer if he can win his first ATP Tour title after reaching the Sydney International final on Friday. Tomic reached his first final with a 7-6 (12/10), 6-4 win over Italian third seed Andreas Seppi to set up a decider against South African Kevin Anderson on Saturday. ‘It’s the start for me. It’s going to be a big match. I’m grateful for this opportunity. I think I’ve got a good shot,’ Tomic said.
