WTA Carlsbad and Washington: 2nd Round Predictions including Hantuchova-Radwanska

Agnieszka Radwanska v Daniela Hantuchova (WTA Carlsbad, R2)
Aga Radwanska
In her tireless pursuit of points, Agnieszka Radwanska is playing four straight weeks with Stanford, Carlsbad, Toronto and Cincy all on her schedule.  After two long matches in Stanford in the quarter-finals (vs. Lepchenko) and final (vs. Cibulkova), one has to question how Aga is going to get on this week.  There were already signs of tiredness in her second serve in the Stanford final and having burnt out at the same stage last year, it seems strange that she is overloading her schedule again.  

Radwanska takes on Daniela Hantuchova in the second round after she claimed her first ever double bagel win over a helpless, Tamira Paszek.  Since Birmingham, Hantuchova has gone 2-3 on the tour and this match will be a steep uphill battle as Radwanska holds a 5-2 head-to-head lead.  I predict Radwanska will win this match, but will struggle later on in the week.

Prediction – Radwanska to beat Hantuchova in 2 sets (1 tight, 1 easy)
