Despite her loss to Bethanie Mattek-Sands in her opening match at Sydney, world No. 5 Agnieszka Radwanska still believes she can win the Australian Open. 

Radwanska won several matches at the Hopman Cup exhibition last week. She has reached the quarterfinals in Melbourne four times, including last year when she fell to eventual finalist Li Na, whom she beat in the 2013 Sydney semifinals.

“Yeah, of course,” Radwanska said when asked whether she could contend in Melbourne. “I think every week is a different story. You start over and over again. I think every tournament isn't the same thing. You're not winning every week every match. I think just couple of guys can do it. Normally you just to have to start again, not really think what was happening in the last week.”
