Agnieszka Radwanska joined in the footsteps of two time Grand Slam winner, Amelie Mauresmo by becoming the latest player to have won the WTA Finals before winning their first ever Grand Slam.
The French Woman, won the coveted year ending trophy in 2005 when the WTA Finals were held in Los Angeles and Mauresmo followed her success by winning the Australian Open and Wimbledon in the following year.
Radwanska has been a Wimbledon finalist before in 2012 and had to play some incredible tennis prior to Singapore in order to ensure qualification. But her test did not stop there as she had a mountain to climb with two straight losses first up in the group stage before finally, with her back against the wall clawed her way back into the tournament.
The Pole defeated Simona Halep, Garbina Muguruza and Petra Kvitova to lift the year ending trophy and will be looking for similar motivation as she looks to win her first grand slam next year. "Well, for sure it gives me more confidence, especially that in a grand slam you also to have win and beat (a) couple of top players in a row, Radwanska said. "I think here it's even harder because there is just eight of us and you don't have any first rounds to get used to the courts.
But definitely a good start. I'll definitely try to do that next year". Also Read: ATP Paris Masters: Will Anyone Interrupt Novak Djokovic´s Reign of Superiority? .
