Magda Linnett (WTA 52) made a big surprise on Sunday and in the first round she defeated one of the candidates for the tournament – Tunisian Anas Jabeur (WTA 9) 3:6, 7:5, 7:5. – I was pissed off because of this. The draw is for an hour. Later I felt completely light. The thought came that I was ready, I got rid of all my anger and I am now ready to win this match – admitted Linette in an interview with Sport.pl.
In 2020, Iga Świątek kept Trevisan at Roland Garros
It was known that the easiest competitor was waiting for Lynette in the second round. Selected by Monday’s match: Martina Trevisan (Italy, WTA 59) – Harriet Dart (Great Britain, WTA 111). Trevisan won with confidence 6: 0, 6: 2. The Italian broke her opponent six times, losing her bid only once. The Italian girl had more winners (20-12) and I (17-29).
Trevisan continues its streak that it started in the final audition for Roland Garros. The Italian won the WTA 250 tournament on clay courts in Rabat. In the 1/8 finals, she defeated the two-time Grand Slam winner (Roland Garros 2016 and Wimbledon 2017) – Spain’s Garbina Muguruza (WTA 10) 2:6, 6:4, 6:1.
Trevisan feels best on clay. He has the best balance on them – 211 wins and 111 losses (67.6%). In the Grand Slam tournaments, the Italian women’s best result was the quarter-finals of Roland Garros in 2020. She then defeated Italian Camila Giorgi, American Cory Gauff and Greece’s Maria Sakkari, and was only stopped by Iga Švetik in the quarter-finals.
At the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open, she did not advance to the third round.
The Linette-Trevisan match is scheduled for Wednesday, May 25th.
