Agnieszka Radwanska had never reached a grand slam semi final before this fortnight but now the Polish player is into her first grand slam final at Wimbledon.
The world no. 3 beat German no. 8 seed Angelique Kerber 6-3, 6-4 Thursday in the Wimbledon semifinals. Radwanska came from 1-3 to win the first set
``This is a dream from when I was kid,'' the 23-year-old Pole told the media. ``I'm playing tennis almost 18 years, and of course everybody's dream is to play the final of a Grand Slam.''
Radwanska is the first Polish woman to reach a grand slam final since 1939, when Jadwiga Jedrzejowska lost in the French Open finals.
Playing on Centre Court, both Radwanska and Kerber started well but soon started to show their nerves.
``We both were a bit nervous in the beginning,'' Radwanska told the press. ``Of course this is the semifinals, so you really want to try your best, but sometimes too much, and your hands a little bit shaking. After a couple of games, I just relaxed a little bit. I was really focusing on every point.''
