Agnieszka Radwanska, enjoying her career-high No.5 ranking earned over the weekend by clinching the Dubai trophy, rushed to Kuala Lumpur to play the BMW Malaysian Open, but rain interfered so much that the Pole finished her first round match two days later than the encounter was scheduled, and right afterwards she played and won her second round.

The 22-year-old Radwanska beat Akgul Amanmuradova 6-2 6-4 on Thursday, while the match started on Wednesday and was supposed to start on Tuesday. Later on Thursday the top-seeded Pole met Karolina Pliskova and defeated her as well, 6-4 6-4.

In the quarterfinals of the $220,000 Malaysian Open Radwanska’s opponent will be Taiwanese qualifier Su-Wei Hsieh.

Defending champion at the tournament was seventh-seeded Jelena Dokic, but she lost today, in the second round to Olivia Rogowska 3-6 6-4 7-6(2). (photo: Johan Rivera)
