Lucie Hradecka crushes Urszula Radwanska to reach round two – Family Circle Cup 2012
Czech star, Lucie Hradecka, flashed past the Polish contender, Urszula Radwanska, with a breadstick at the Family Circle Open 2012 on Monday. She jolted down a 6-1, 6-4 victory over the 21-year-old to power into the round of 16 at this green clay court tournament
held in Charleston, South Carolina.
The Prague native showed tremendous skills and abilities to triumph over Radwanska in straight sets in their second meeting. After earning the fame in almost an hour-long venture, Hradecka not only avenged her loss at the Eastbourne WTA event last year but
also secured a place in the second round.
Hradecka entered the Family Circle Tennis Center with poise and held her serve in the opening game. After Radwanska kept her serve in the following game, Hradecka blasted powerful groundstrokes to wind up the following five games in a row, ultimately pulling
out the opener with a breadstick. She brushed off all three breakpoints she faced and capitalised on two out of three break chances to joggle up this spectacular 6-1 score line.
Ranked 73rd in the WTA Premier Rankings, Hradecka swayed in the start of the proceeding set and gifted away her serve in the second game to go 0-2 down. However, the Czech made a fitting reply and not only grasped her break back but cashed in
another break chance to go 4-2 up. She then held her remaining serves and clinched the set with a 6-4 score line.
Overall, the 26-year-old formulated a poor first serve share of 47 per cent as compared to the Pole’s 55 per cent but impressively clicked 18 out of 28 points on it. The Czech also superbly warded off six out of seven breakpoints she encountered and ended
the deal with 60 points.
The Czech will next face the Swiss qualifier, Stefanie Voegele, who stunned the 16th seed, Jarmila Gajdosova, in a three set thriller in an hour and 44-minute marathon. The Swiss lost her serve six times but cashed in six out of 12 break opportunities
to manipulate a 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 score line. She fully capitalised on nine double faults the Aussie spilled and clobbered a higher first serve share of 70 per cent to rule the match.
