Both sets in the match started with three straight breaks initiated by the top-seeded Kerber and both times the German added more breaks later, comfortably defeating the second-seeded Radwanska. Even though the Pole's break point conversion was 100% (2/2), her serve was endangered 13 times and broken seven times. Twenty-eight unforced errors and unsatisfactory conversion rate at the net didn't help either.
