Denisa Allertova is proving that she is much more capable than her current ranking of 130 in the world suggests. Allertova blasted her way through the qualifying draw at Melbourne Park without dropping a set. Allertova has continued to storm through the tournament in the main draw, beating Pauline Parmentier 6-3 6-0 in the opening round before beating Shuai Zhang 6-4 7-6. Allertova did also reach the third round stage at Melbourne Park in 2016. The quick hard courts in Melbourne really suit the same of Allertova.

Magda Linette started the event with a 2-6 6-4 6-3 win over Jennifer Brady before causing a big upset as she defeated the 22nd seeded Daria Kasatkina 7-6 6-2. Linette was seemingly struggling with an ankle injury throughout the match but Kasatkina was unable to take advantage of the situation.

The pair have never gone head-to-head in a completed match.

(1) 🇨🇿 Karolina Pliskova vs 🇵🇱 Magda Linette

Karolina Pliskova will be competing at a Grand Slam event as the world number 1 for the first time at this year’s U.S Open.

Shuai Zhang caused the biggest upset of the opening round when she eliminated 3-time former champion Petra Kvitova in straight sets. Zhang claimed a surprisingly easy 6-2 6-1 win over Petra Kvitova on Monday night and will look to bring momentum from that big win into her second round clash with Magda Linette on Wednesday. In more good news for Zhang, she holds a perfect 2-0 head-to-head record over Linette heading into this second round clash at the Connecticut Open.

Agnieszka Radwanska vs Magda Linette, U.S Open R2 Preview

U.S Open R2: (15) Agnieszka Radwanska vs Magda Linette

Agnieszka Radwanska began her 2015 U.S Open campaign with a comfortable 6-2 6-3 victory over Kateryna Siniakova. Radwanska will continue her quest for a maiden quarter-final appearance at Flushing Meadows on Wednesday when she comes up against compatriot Magda Linette.

Radwanska produced a very clean performance on Monday to advance to the second round. The Pole’s serve worked nicely, maintaining a high first serve percentage and winning a very high percentage of first serve points. Aga was far too classy for Siniakova from the baseline, throwing in some trademark drop shots to perfect effect. Radwanska should find her second round encounter equally comfortable.

 

Magda Linette picked up her very first main draw victory at Flushing Meadows on Monday, defeating Urszula Radwanska 7-6 6-1. Magda’s victory over Urszula was also her very first main draw victory at a Grand Slam, a big achievement for the Pole. Magda now has an opportunity to play her nation’s number 1 player in the second round.

This will be the very first meeting between Aga and Magda. Aga will however have a good insight into Magda’s game, Ula will no doubt tell Aga everything she needs to know. Aga should be far too classy, it is important that she wins these kinds of matches as quickly as possible to remain as fresh as possible moving forward.

Prediction: Aga Radwanska to defeat Magda Linette in 2 sets
