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)
