Radwanskas are tired of first-round faceoffs

No. 8 Agnieszka Radwanska is tired of being drawn against her younger sister Urszula  and is threatening not to play her if it occurs again. Agnieszka crushed Urszula 6-1, 6-1 in the first round of Sydney, the fourth consecutive time the sisters have faced off in the first round. "It's just the worst feeling playing against your sister, especially because we're very close and have been practicing together for 17 years and traveling together," Agnieszka told the Sydney Morning Herald. "Somehow we play again against each other, the fourth time in a row [in the first round]. We said the next time I think we're just going to pack and go home because this is ridiculous."

Urszula added:  ''It's just such bad luck. You can't avoid it, but it's unbelievable. I hope it's not going to happen again.''
