Radwanska cruises into final

Top seed Agnieszka Radwanska put on a dominant performance against two-time defending champion Petra Kvitova to ease into the final of the Connecticut Open with a 6-1, 6-1 triumph yesterday morning (Singapore time).

Kvitova, who also won the event in 2012, was looking to join Venus Williams and Caroline Wozniacki as four-time winners of the tournament, but the sixth-seeded Czech was completely overwhelmed by the Polish world No. 4.

The two-time Wimbledon champion committed 17 unforced errors in the first set and never got into the match, which was completed in 77 minutes.

The Pole advances to face Ukrainian Elina Svitolina, who overcame Johanna Larsson 6-4, 6-2 to reach the final.
