Mattek-Sands, who is back on tour after a four-month layoff because of a right knee injury, lost in the first round in Brisbane last week and had to win three matches just to qualify for the main draw in Sydney. "Very happy with it," Mattek-Sands said. "Ive played her a couple times and Ive never beaten her, so its probably one of the best wins of my career." Radwanska received treatment on her right serving shoulder during last weeks Hopman Cup in Perth and said Tuesday it was still bothering her. "Maybe a little bit, but I have good painkillers," Radwanska said. "Its not a big deal, it should be all right."

Former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki was also on the receiving end of an upset, falling to Lucie Safarova 6-4, 7-6 (7).
