Why did A. Radwanska lose?

Agnieszka Radwanska lost her match against Garbine Muguruza for two reasons: Radwanska’s level of play dropped, maybe a result of mental or physical fatigue; and Muguruza’s level of play increased.  The first set Muguruza could not keep the ball in play and she lost most of the rallies with a slew of unforced errors.  However, in the subsequent sets, she played more consistently, but more importantly, smarter tennis.

Although when she lost that lead in the second set, I thought Radwanska would win since she had won their two previous encounters.  Yet, that is the beauty of tennis; the match is not over until the final ball is struck.  Muguruza wants it known that she is a player to be reckoned with and she will not be satisfied with a few sporadic wins; she wants the titles.

SCORE:  [CR24] Garbine Muguruza (ESP) def. [CR6] Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) 3-6, 7-6(4), 6-2.
