Jan. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Agnieszka Radwanska will enter the Australian Open tennis tournament next week after not dropping a set in securing back-to-back titles to start the season.

Radwanska, the world No. 4 from Poland, eased past Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia 6-0, 6-0 in today’s Sydney International final to continue her undefeated run this season after also winning last week’s tournament in Auckland. Cibulkova had 36 errors, compared with eight for Radwanska.

In each of the previous four years, at least one finalist from the premier-level women’s event at Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre went on to reach the championship match at the Australian Open. Victoria Azarenka won in Sydney last year before claiming her first Grand Slam title at Melbourne Park.

The season-opening major starts in three days. Radwanska, 23, was drawn to play Bojana Bobusic of Australia in round one.

Top-seeded Azarenka will begin her title defense against Monica Niculescu of Romania and was placed in the same half of the 128-player draw as five-time champion Serena Williams of the U.S., putting them in line for a semifinal meeting.

Kevin Anderson, ranked 36th on the ATP World Tour, became the first South African in tournament history to reach the Sydney singles final. He’ll play Bernard Tomic of Australia tomorrow for the title.
