In the previous two matches with Elina Switolina (WTA 5), Magda Linette (WTA 44) did not win a set. First, the Ukrainian was better in the third round of the 2017 Roland Garros (6:4, 7:5) and then won the 1/8 finals of the WTA 250 competition in Strasbourg in 2020 (7:6, 7:5). ). Both duels took place on the surface of the earth. On Thursday, the ladies gathered on the lawn of Wimbledon.
The beginning was tense in Lynette’s performance. The Polish woman made some mistakes and returned the service after a double mistake. But after switching sides, everything changed. The tennis player from Poznan retrained perfectly and moved around the court. She can do just about anything. In the opening match, she finished 17 balls with only three from the Ukrainian side. When I made up for the break in the second game, I felt very confident. As a result, she easily held the pass, and then broke the opponent’s serve to 3:1.
The current fifth rocket in the world is famous for its courage and perseverance. In the sixth inning, at 1:4, she came back in style from 0-40 to hold the pass. Switolina made efforts to save the first group, but Linette would not allow her to return to the game. In the ninth game, I worked on three chances to finish the opening match and used the first immediately.

The second batch at first was very even. Switolina got out of trouble in the third inning and kept a pass from 0-30. Lynette was not surprised by her own service. The events at 3:4 turned out to be decisive. The Polish defended the break point with great aerial shots and tied the number 4, and in the ninth game she scored a decisive break. After only 64 minutes, the Pozna player won the Soitolina 6:3, 6:4!
Our representative played a great match. She finished 28 balls and has 15 non-compulsive fouls. Played boldly. I know when to attack. Switolina only recorded 8 hits win and 13 fouls. However, the Ukrainian only managed to break one break and lost the serve three times.
Lynette advanced to the third round of Wimbledon 2021 and tied her best Grand Slam result. She will fight for a place in Saturday’s 1/8 finals, her opponent, Spanish 30th seed Paul Bados.
