Seeds Radwanska and Pavlyuchenkova advance to KDB Korea Open final


Seed No.1 Agnieszka Radwanska rolled into the final of the KDB Korea Open in Seoul where she will face third seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Their head-to-head record is 2-1 for Radwanska. They met this year at the US Open where Agnieszka managed to eliminate Anastasia in the third round with the tiebreak closing the match 6-4 7-6(1).

In the Seoul semis Radwanska blitzed Lara Arruabarrena of Spain in straight sets 6-0 6-2 after only one hour and four minutes. This is the Pole’s fourth straight-set victory. Previously she eliminated Alexandra Cadantu of Romania 6-4 6-0 in the first round, Estrella Cabeza Candela of Spain 6-2 6-1 in the second round and Vera Dushevina of Russia 6-2 6-0 in the quarterfinals.

Pavlyuchenkova fought till the end with all she had against Francesca Schiavone of Italy. The Russian won in straight sets after closing both sets with a tiebreak 7-6(11) 7-6(6) during two hours and 23 minutes. Now the two are tied in their head-to-head meetings at 3-3. (photo: © Neal Trousdale)
