Radwanska puts on a tennis show in San Diego

Everything the talented Agnieszka Radwanska does well, she did even better tonight in San Diego. Going into her quarterfinal match against Shahar Peer, who had a 1-3 record against her, Radwanska brought her very best game. She served well (her first serve is significantly better than it used to be, but her second is still her weakness), she read the court with her usual cleverness, and she volleyed expertly.

The 4th seed used every trick in her repertoire tonight, and it was all just too much for Peer. Radwanska was all over the court, she made very few errors, and in just over an hour, she had a 6-2, 6-0 victory.

Great match for Radwanska! But I also think that even though it was a lopsided loss, Peer fought and stayed positive throughout to try and win.

I watched this match and yes it was a clinic. I agree with Sunny that Peer fought even when you knew there was no hope. Never really got down on herself but was really out classed last night.

ARad's first serve does have more pop on it. Noticed it in Stanford when she was acing Sharapova and others and you are right, the second serve does need a lot of work. After all, you are only as good as your second serve.
