2012 Wimbledon Coverage: Agnieszka Radwanska Forces Third Set

Serena Williams is in for a fight.

Agnieszka Radwanska fought back from a 4-2 deficit in the second set to win, 7-5, and force a third set in a match that looked like Williams would dominate en route to yet another grand slam title.

Radwanska has gained momentum as she's figured out how to handle Williams' power. It's paying off as the only way to beat Williams is to play with confidence and not allow her to intimidate you into playing poorly. Radwanska has gathered herself mentally and turned this Wimbledon final into a match instead of a formality.

Radwanska is playing for her first Wimbledon title while Williams is looking for her fifth. One player will be going home empty handed. We'll let you know who that player will be as soon as it happens.
