Radwanska targets first slam

WTA Tour champion Agnieszka Radwanska hopes to build on the platform she created for herself at the end of 2015, by making tremendous inroads during the Australian Open Series.

Radwanska, who was once the number two ranked player in the world, has only reached one Grand Slam singles final – Wimbledon 2012.

However, since joining forces with tennis great Martina Navratilova for a brief spell in 2014 there have been strong indicators that the Pole might be able to shift the standard of her game to a higher level. She certainly believes this can be achieved in 2016.

"The goal, of course, is winning a Grand Slam," Radwanska told Australian journalists this week.

"I didn't make it yet, so I'm trying everything to win those Slams. I was close few times, but I never won seven matches in a row," added Radwanska, who is not going to compete at the Hopman Cup next season. That is already an indication that the focus this year is solely on the big prize.
