Lepchenko ousts Radwanska in Korea


SEOUL: Varvaro Lepchenko upset world number five Agnieszka Radwanska for the second time in two meetings as she ended the Pole’s title defense in the WTA Korea Open quarterfinals on Friday (Saturday in Manila). Lepchenko lost an opening-set tiebreaker but she came back with a vengeance to win 6-7 (4/7), 6-2, 6-2 and set up a semi-final against fellow American Christina McHale. The result means former Wimbledon champion Radwanska, who also lost to Lepchenko in July, is still yet to successfully defend any one of her 14 career titles.
