Radwanska confident of retaining WTA Finals title

Agnieszka Radwanska is confident she can handle the pressure and successfully defend her WTA Finals title in Singapore next week.

The world number three beat Petra Kvitova last year to win the season-ending tournament in Southeast Asia for the first time in her career.

Radwanska claimed her third singles title of the year at the China Open this month and the second seed feels she is capable of signing off for 2016 in style by lifting the Billie Jean King Trophy once again.

"I think I had really great couple of weeks in Asia, so I'm feeling good. I'm pretty confident," said the Pole.

"I just hope I can keep it up and really play the same good tennis that I was playing especially in the China Open.

"There is always a little bit more pressure when you really have to defend a big title, a lot of points. But on the other hand, when you're top five, Top 10, you're pretty much defending every week more or less.

"So just trying not to really think about it and of course just try to repeat what I did last year."

Radwanska will face Garbine Muguruza, Karolina Pliskova and either Johanna Konta or Svetlana Kuznetsova in the White Group.
