China's 2017 tennis season will start with the WTA Shenzhen Open on Sunday when Polish world No.3 Agnieszka Radwanska will hope to carry the luck of the top seed. In the past four years, the top seed of each edition won the crown and top seeded again in Shenzhen, Radwanska will begin her title defence facing 100th ranked home player Duan Yingying in the first round.

The year 2016 has seen the 2015 WTA Finals winner consolidate her place at the very top of the tennis tree and the highlight came in October when she defeated British rising star Johanna Konta to collect her third China Open crown in Beijing. The biggest question surrounding the 27-year-old in the new year would be whether she can eventually win the Grand Slam. Her best Grand Slam result was at Wimbledon in 2012 when she entered the final.

World no.1 Serena Williams powered her way into her seventh Australian Open Final, brushing aside the challenge of the no.4 seed Agnieszka Radwanska in straight sets, 6-0, 6-4.

Williams was in no mood to hang around again today and the faster conditions under the closed roof only augmented her game as she raced through the opening set in a little over 20 minutes, 6-0. It wasn't that Radwanska played poorly, in fact she made just 3 unforced errors all set, it was that Serena was just that much better.

World no.1 Serena Williams stayed on course for a record equaling 22nd Grand Slam title, crushing long term rival Maria Sharapova in straight sets, 6-4, 6-1 to advance to the Australian Open semi-finals. Joining her in the final of the year's first Grand Slam is the no.4 seed Agnieszka Radwanska, a 6-1, 6-3 winner herself against 10th seed Carla Suarez Navarro.

Radwanska opened proceedings on Rod Laver Arena this morning, and raced to a 4-0 lead as the Spaniard, a notoriously slow starter, struggled to compete with the always consistent Pole early on. Radwanska was done with the first set in a hurry, taking it 6-1.

Agnieszka Radwanska benefited from an unfortunate code violation and a severely cramping opponent inĀ Anna-Lena Friedsam to advance to the quarter-finals of the 2016 Australian Open.

Friedsam, ranked 82 in the world, came out all guns blazing against the 4th seeded Pole and nicked the opening set 8-6 in a tiebreak. Radwanska upped her game in the second set to take it 6-1, but the match was evenly poised going deep into the third when cramps got the better of the young German, leaving her barely able to move and in tears.

Agnieszka Radwanska, winner of the Year end WTA Championship, stayed on course to end her long wait to go one step further this year and win her maiden Grand Slam singles title by getting past the tricky challenge posed by Canadian youngster Eugenie Bouchard in what was expected to be a thrilling second round contest.

Bouchard gave early indications of it being just that as she raced to a 4-2 lead in the opening set, only to lose 10 out of the next 12 games, going down rather tamely in the end 6-4, 6-2 to the no.4 seed.
