According to a published report of the ESPN, the former second top-ranked female tennis player in the planet scored an impressive 6-1, 6-2 win over the 19th ranked Strycova, who was beaten by Radwanska in all of their six official matchups since 2005.
"I think I'm playing better and better each match," the two-time Australian Open semifinalist told reporters after the match that lasted for an hour and 16 minutes.
"I think I was doing everything right today, and I cannot really complain about anything," Radwanska added.
She also said that she feels comfortable and really likes playing in Australia while feeling very happy in making another tournament final appearance.
The victory puts the current WTA women's singles world No. 3 a triumph away in claiming her second Sydney International title, which she won in 2013 after beating Slovakian tennis ace Dominika Cibulkova in two spectacular 6-0, 6-0 straight-sets win.
The 27-year-old native of Krakow will be facing the United Kingdom's No. 1 player Johanna Konta in the championship round. Konta, who was born in Sydney but moved to England at age 14 and was granted British citizenship in 2012, battled her way to the finals after defeating the Canadian tennis star Eugenie Bouchard in their respective semifinal match.
Basing from the head-to-head matchup record in the official website of the WTA, the upcoming championship showdown will be the two elite tennis players' third official meeting with Radwanska enjoying a 2-0 edge over the current world no. 9.
Radwanska defeated Konta in the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, USA, and in China Open in Beijing, China, last 2016.
