It’s Na problem for Radwanska
FOURTH seed Agnieszka Radwanska was poles apart from Li Na as she swept into the Wimbledon semis.
Radwanska, last year’s runner-up, defeated the Chinese sixth seed 7-6 (7-5) 4-6 6-2 on Centre Court.
But she needed EIGHT match points to finish the rain-affected marathon, which lasted two hours and 43 minutes.
And Wimbledon chiefs closed the roof when rain disrupted play for a second time.
The 24-year-old from Poland will now meet Serena Williams’ last-16 conqueror Sabine Lisicki tomorrow.
“I’m very happy to have got through,” said Radwanska.
“I’m very, very happy to be in the semi-finals.”
Radwanska had to dodge four set points in the opening set as she fought back from 5-3
SEMI JOY: Radwanska down to take it on a tie-break.
Li then won four games to force a decider – then Radwanska called for a medical timeout to deal with a thigh problem.
It swung the match back in her favour as she broke immediately and kept her momentum to seal the match.
When asked about her thigh problem, she added: “Too much tennis in the last few days, that’s why I was struggling, but it’s a good problem to have.
“I’ll just keep going and try my best in the semi-finals.”
