The pole is doing very well in the stadiums of Strasbourg. In the 1/16 finals, the 30-year-old confidently defeated Russian Warwara Gracieva (71 WTA player) 6:3, 6:0, never losing her assists. In the next match, Linette faced a player from Great Britain – Heather Watson (105th WTA). The Polish performed very well and won 6:1, 6:1 in an hour and ten minutes. Interestingly, the British, like the former competitor of the 30-year-old, did not have a chance to break Lynette. In addition, the Polish woman showed an unprecedented balance in winning points after the first service – she was 100% effective.
