Serena Williams all set to demolish young Agnieszka Radwanska in today's Wimbledon final, but admits to being inconsistent

Four-time Wimbledon champion, Serena Williams would be gunning for her 14th Grand Slam title when she takes the court for the ladies’ singles final against third seed 23-year-old Agnieszka Radwanska at Wimbledon today.

The sixth seeded Serena has been in great form at the BigW this year. She crushed two seeded players — Petra Kvitova and Victoria Azarenka — en route to the final.

The 30-year old Serena is ready to give her best in the final too. “Well it’s the Wimbledon final, I don’t know any other way to come out, except my best,” Serena said.

“Radwanska has been playing well and won in Miami. She has been consistent this year, more consistent than I have. And that tells me, from the beginning I really need to go out there and be ready to hit a lot of shots,” Serena added.

However, Serena looked pretty happy to be back to where she belongs. “I am so happy to be playing here on the court at my age. I feel like I belong here on this tennis court and nowhere else,” Serena said.

Meanwhile, in head-to-head analysis, Serena is leading 2-0 against her young opponent. Serena beat Radwanska at Berlin and Wimbledon quarter-finals in 2008.

First Grand slam final
Agnieszka Radwanska is in her maiden Grand Slam final and is the second Polish woman to reach a Grand Slam final after Jadwiga Jedrzejowska’s appearance in the 1939 French championship.

The 23-year-old was all praise for her rival. “It’s always tough to play Serena, she is a very tough opponent. She is playing great tennis on grass. She has won this championship earlier and so I don’t think I have anything to lose, so will just go in and try my best,” Radwanska said.

But Radwanska, who is on verge of becoming World No 1, looks to do everything to get the coveted spot. “I will do everything to be No 1,” she said.
