Wimbledon ladies quarter finals: Radwanska beat Kirilenko 7–5, 4–6, 7–5

Agnieszka Radwanska is keeping her feet on the ground despite reaching the semi finals of a Grand Slam for the first time.

The Polish star beat Maria Kirilenko in three sets in a rain-affected match that started on Court 1 and finished on Centre Court under the roof.

“I’m just very, very happy,” Radwanska told the BBC. “It’s the first time I’ve reached the semi-finals.

“There’s no word to describe it. Today for me was like 40 hours.

“It’s never easy with the conditions and we ended up playing the roof. In the end, I’m happy I got through in three sets.

“They told me right away when we finished on Court One that we might move to Centre.

“But I’m happier to finish in one day rather than go to the next day.

“I was just trying to be focused on every point and focused on my serve.”
