Radwanska safely moves into the Wimbledon second round under the Centre Court roof


Agnieszka Radwanska

Yet another Agnieszka Radwanska‘s match was accompanied by rain, but this time there was no room for frustration, as the Pole’s rained-delayed Wimbledon first-rounder, originally scheduled for No.2 Court on Tuesday, got the privileged roofed Centre Court on Wednesday and in just over an hour the third seed comfortably progressed into the second round with a win over Kateryna Kozlova, while rain suspended play on all other courts.

The 97th-ranked Kozlova, making her main-draw debut at SW19, broke Radwanska’s serve once in the first set, but that improved her score just from 0-4 to 1-4 and the Ukrainian lost the set shortly afterwards. In the second set, the underdog won just one game and the final score reads 6-2 6-1 for the 2012 Wimbledon finalist Radwanska.

Radwanska’s opponent in the second round will be the winner of the match between Italy’s Karin Knapp and Croatia’s Ana Konjuh.
