The Polish tennis player Magda Linette is waiting for a tough job in the first round of the US Open Grand Slam. Our player will play with the famous Serena Williams. However, Agnieszka Radwańska is confronted with Tatjana Maria, which is mentioned below.
Agnieszka Radwańska is currently 39th in the WTA rankings (from next week she will be at the end of the fifth decade) and Tatjana Maria is 67. For the first time in 11 years Polka was not in the group sown in the Grand Slam.
The 29-year-old Chekhovian woman with her rival, who is two years older, has had three times to date and every time she won very confident. In each of these meetings she lost up to three games. Recently, these competitors had to deal with Tiencin two years ago. In the Grand Slam they had the opportunity to play against each other – eight years ago, in the first round of the Australian Open, the coach of Tomasz Wiktorowski gave away only one player to the rival.
A German woman who gave birth to a daughter five years ago has not achieved success in events of this ranking. Only once – in Wimbledon 2015 – did the third round. In the US Open twice – also in the previous season – she was promoted to the second stage of the competition.
The 60th Linette rocket of the world had bad luck in the draw. Poznanian went to seeded with "17" Serena Williams, six-time US Open winner. Although the American is 26 on the WTA list, the organizers of the fighting in the Flushing Meadows facilities in June already announced that they will now look at the impact of pregnancy on the current lists of female players. Williams left the previous edition of the New York tournament for this reason – she gave birth to a daughter on 1 September.
The 26-year-old Linette never had the opportunity to cope with an 11-year-old tennis player. The American player has counted a record number in the Open Era since 1968, won 23 major titles in singles and only one is missing to match the best in this respect, Australian Margaret Court. The best result of the Poznań girl in the league of this rank is the third round. In New York, however, it only went once to the second phase of the competition and it was in 2015.
It is difficult to assume that Williams, who returned to march in March, is in a weak form after a termination of pregnancy. In the first few gigs of this season she did not achieve any significant results, but in July Wimbledon reached the final.
