“The first match is always tough, always tricky, especially with the conditions here every day being so different,“ Radwańska said after taking the last point, in what is the first Grand Slam tournament of 2016.
“I'm just very glad I could win that match in two sets.”
Radwańska is currently rated No.4 in the world by WTA, and fans are keeping fingers crossed that she can keep up her winning streak, after triumphing in four tournaments – including the WTA Finals - over the last four months.
“I really feel good here in Australia, very comfortable on the court," Radwańska said.
“I love the crowd, I'm really playing my game and enjoying tennis - I think that's the most important thing.”
She will now face either Canada's Eugenie Bouchard (WTA No. 37) or Serbia's Aleksandra Krunic (WTA No. 119). (nh/pk)
