The winner of the ASB Classic women's tennis tournament in Auckland,Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska, has continued her ideal Australian Open preparation as she moved into the Sydney International semi-finals on Wednesday.

Radwanska justified her billing as the top women's seed at Sydney Olympic Park, becoming the first player into the semis with a 6-4 7-5 over Italian Roberta Vinci.

After winning in Auckland last week the world number four has already won seven matches from as many attempts this season and says she could hardly imagine a better way to set up her tilt at a maiden grand slam title.
