Radwanska eyes Grand Slam after success at Finale

Savouring the biggest success of her career by winning the WTA year-end singles championship, Agnieszka Radwanska has now set her eyes on Grand Slam glory, saying the confidence-boosting performance in Singapore will surely help her win a Major trophy.

In a stunning show, the world number five from Poland overcame two losses in the Group stage to reach the semifinals, where she toppled nemesis Grabine Muguruza and finally trumped Simona Halep to become the champion.

Radwanska, however, has not tasted much success at Grand Slam stage. She has three semifinal appearances to show and in 2015 season, she reached the last-four stage of only the Wimbledon.

Last year she had reached semis of Australian Open and in 2013 she made semis at the hallowed turfs at Wimbledon.

“For sure, Singapore performance has given me a lot of confidence, I just hope that it will help me win a Grand Slam next year. I can try to be my best because nothing comes easy (at that level),” Radwanska said in an exclusive interaction on the sidelines of IPTL, where she is playing for the Indian Aces team.

Asked what she needs to add in her game to get that elusive Major, Radwanska said, “It’s always hard to say one thing.”

“You just need to believe that you can do it. You can win those seven matches in a row. Couple of things have to be together to win a Grand Slam and a little bit of luck also on the way. In every Grand Slam, you have a chance.” The 23-year-old said tournaments in the Asian region post the US Open helped her redeem the otherwise ordinary 2015 season.
