Suddenly, Garbine Muguruza figured out how to play against Agnieszka Radwanska.

ATP: Delpo's Comeback Begins with a Win in Sydney

After dropping her fifth consecutive set to Radwanska in the opener, 6-3, the 21-year-old Spaniard turned the tables and earned a hard-fought 3-6, 7-6(4), 6-2 victory to earn a spot in the Apia International quarterfinals where she’ll meet either Angelique Kerber or Daria Gavrilova.

Muguruza squandered a 4-1 lead in the second set but she made good in the tiebreaker, crushing a crosscourt forehand pass to draw level.

After missing an easy overhead to allow Radwanska to close to 3-2 in the decider, Muguruza went on to take the final three games, closing festivities with her 11th aces of the evening.

"I knew it would be a tough match before we started. I played her two times before and I lost. I was like, 'Okay, this time I want to win,'" Muguruza said after the match. "For me to have won this match, I feel like I've improved a lot.”

In other action at Sydney, 2nd-seeded Petra Kvitova eased past China’s Peng Shuai while Sam Stosur was knocked off by Barbora Zahlavova Strycova.
