French Open 2014: Radwanska rues missed chances after surprise exit

Agnieszka Radwanska was critical of her failure to convert chances after the third seed was the latest big-name casualty following her third-round loss to Ajla Tomljanovic.

The Polish star was comfortably beaten 6-4 6-4 by her unseeded Croatian opponent as Radwanska made an early exit like her fellow top seeds Serena Williams and Li Na.

Fourth seed Simona Halep, who beat Heather Watson on Wednesday, is the highest seed left in the women’s draw – and Radwanksa paid credit to Tomljanovic following the defeat.

After seeing the two first seeds go out, you kind of feel like ‘I can do this too’

“She definitely played good tennis today,” said Radwanska. “I had my chances, I didn’t take them. I think that cost me the match.

“It doesn’t mean if the first and second seeds lost, it doesn’t mean the third one is going to win.

“It’s stupid to say that. It doesn’t matter who is in the draw, if you play good then you’re going to win. I just didn’t play good enough today to win the match.”

Tomljanovic revealed that she drew inspiration from the surprise losses of Li and Williams as the 21-year-old moved past the third round of a Grand Slam for the first time.

“After seeing the two first seeds go out, you kind of feel like ‘I can do this too,'” said Tomljanovic. “I grew up with these girls that are beating them.

“I went on the stadium for the first time, and Radwanska kind of feels like home there, because she’s been there a lot more than I did. I went out there, and I really, inside really thought I could win.

“I think that showed and it is why I won.”
