Rest the key for Radwanska

China Daily | Updated: 2013-07-04 07:52

Good shoes, a relaxed mind after negotiating a perilous tournament for top seeds and her experience 12 months ago are standing Agnieska Radwanska in good stead for a tilt at another run to the Wimbledon final.

Massage treatment, rest and watching compatriots Jerzy Janowicz and Lukas Kubot clash in the men's quarterfinals on Wednesday are foremost in her plans before the fourth seed faces German Sabine Lisicki next.

"It's not really the injury. My legs are a bit overused. A lot of treatment and massage tomorrow and I will be ready for the semi-final," she said.

Radwanska came through another three-set battle with Tsvetana Pironkova on Monday having also been taken the distance by Madison Keys in the third round.

"A lot of tennis the last couple days, so it's been really tough," she said. "Especially on grass... everything comes to your legs."

The Pole has, at least, not been getting as closely acquainted with the green turf as some at this year's championships with slipping and sliding players eyeing the courts with suspicion and scepticism.

"Just good shoes," was a smiling Radwanska's answer when asked how she was staying on her feet.
