SYDNEY (AFP) - The Agnieszka Radwanska juggernaut ran over hapless Dominika Cibulkova on Friday, as the Pole won the Sydney International to take her unbeaten streak this year to nine ahead of the Australian Open.
The top seed crushed Cibulkova 6-0, 6-0 in just over an hour for back-to-back tournament victories, making the perfect preparation for the year-opening Grand Slam, which starts in Melbourne on Monday.
It was the world No. 4's 12th career singles title and she has yet to drop a set this year.
"I'm extremely happy that I've won two titles in a row and not even losing one set. It's really been amazing two weeks," Radwanska said.
"I definitely didn't really expect that at all. She's a great player and she had some great wins this week, so I definitely didn't really expect that score."
Radwanska overpowered Cibulkova, ranked 14th in the world, breaking her serve six times, winning 68 per cent of the points and capitalising on her error-prone opponent.
Cibulkova, who was unseeded in the tournament, double-faulted on match point to cap a miserable night's work.
"This is tennis and this is sport. Sometimes things happen like that and of course I feel bad," Radwanska said.
