Goerges hits 56 winners to beat Radwanska at Olympics


In the first round of the Olympic Tennis Event and on the first day in 100 years that rain sent the Olympic tennis indoors, Julia Goerges upset second seed Agnieszka Radwanska 7-5 6-7(5) 6-4.

En route to the victory, Goerges fired 56 winners, including 20 aces, 17 forehand winners, 12 backhand winners and 5 volley winners. Her differential of winners to unforced errors was +31, while Radwanska’s was just +3.

To make the win even bigger for Goerges, Radwanska’s last tournament and actually her last final came at the same Wimbledon venue this month. (source: WTA Tour, photo: © Neal Trousdale)
