It does not matter how you start as long as you finish strongly is the philosophy Agnieszka Radwanska applied as she lifted the biggest title of her career by beating Petra Kvitova to win the WTA Finals.
"I lost first two matches but it's not like I was playing bad. It was still good matches. I just didn't use the chances - Radwanska said - I wasn't really focused enough and something just slipped away and then it was hard to come back.
But definitely not bad matches, especially the one against Maria. I was really feeling better afterwards and I think I got used to the conditions, used to the surface". Starting the campaign with a tough loss to Maria Sharapova, the Poland native was also beaten by Flavia Pennetta in her second match.
But Radwanska was not ready to give up – having played a good latter part of the season to just qualify for Singapore; the Pole then stunned the top seed, Simona Halep and followed it up with an upset victory over Garbine Muguruza in the semi-final.
In the final, she still had to play for everything as she faced off against Kvitova who had beaten the favorite Sharapova in the semis but Radwanska had all the answers as she won in three sets. Also Read: WTA FINALS - Agnieszka Radwanska upsets also Petra Kvitova and wins the title! .
