Third seed Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland suffered a shocking defeat from the hands of Spain’s Garbine Muguruza in the second round of the Apia International 2015 in Sydney.

The 24-year-old Spaniard pulled off her first ever victory against the fancied Pole, with a 3-6, 7-6, 6-2 triumph in a grueling encounter that lasted for over two years.

“For me to have won this match, I feel like I’ve improved a lot,” Muguruza was quoted as saying by WTA Tennis. “When I play against her I really have to concentrate and play my game, because she makes me play different styles and drop shots.”

Meanwhile, local favorite Samantha Stosur also crashed out of the tournament after losing to Czech Republic’s Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, 7-6 6-2.
