Agnieszka Radwanska: Heads to Melbourne after back-to-back titles.
Agnieszka Radwanska says a hot run of form has raised her hopes of finally winning a grand slam.
The world No 4 goes into next week's Australian Open buoyed by a whitewash win over Dominika Cibulkova in the final of Sydney's warm-up tournament that stretched her unbeaten run to nine matches.
Radwanska reached her first major final at Wimbledon last year, only to be beaten by Serena Williams, and has yet to go beyond the quarter-final stage in Melbourne but admitted her confidence is higher than ever.

"I'm extremely happy I've won two titles in a row and have not even lost a set. Really it's been an amazing two weeks.
"The Australian Open is a different tournament, a different story, and I just have to start from the beginning.
