Bubble in paradise

Agnieszka Radwanska claims the Sony Ericsson Open title with a 7-5, 6-4 victory over Maria Sharapova in Key Biscayne, Fla., on Saturday. Radwanska improved to 2-7 against Sharapova, the other victory coming at the 2007 US Open.
Agnieszka Radwanska, ranked a career-best No. 4, earns her ninth career title and fourth since last summer with a two-set win against Maria Sharapova. Radwanska is 0-4 in 2012 against top-ranked Victoria Azarenka and 26-0 against everyone else.
Maria Sharapova finishes with 45 unforced errors, many from the backhand side. Agnieszka Radwanska commits only 10 unforced errors and erases all three break points.
With the loss, Maria Sharapova falls to 0-4 in the Key Biscayne finals. She was also runner-up in 2005, '06 and last year.
Agnieszka Radwanska, winning her ninth WTA title Saturday, improves to 26-4 on the season, tied for most match wins on the tour this year with Victoria Azarenka (26-1).
