Pole axed by Pironkova

2013 AEGON International

Tsvetana-Pironkova2012EBwarmupTsvetana Pironkova pulled off the second shock of the day, following Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova being dumped out at the first hurdle, with her comprehensive straight set success.

The leggy Bulgarian destroyed the high hopes of 2008 Eastbourne winner Agnieszka Radwanska with an emphatic 71 minute 6-2 6-4 victory.

Agnieszka_Radwanska1Stunned Radwanska confessed:

“It was not my day today, that’s for sure, I’ve had a lot of matches this year and I’m a bit tired.

“I was trying everything, but she is playing really good on grass.

“It’s not much time till Wimbledon so I can’t really have a lot of time off, but one or two days off will be good for me. A day off means no racquet at all, not even sports shoes.”

Pironkova ended her five match losing streak to Radwanska, and six was the unseeded player’s lucky number as she dropped just six games.

Her superb serve and pinpoint returns overturned the world no3, coming up with four out of nine break point chances.
