Personal lifeEdit

Magda Linette was born on 12 February 1992 in Poznań to Tomasz and Beata.[3] Her father is a tennis coach and her mother is an educator.[4] Linette was coached by Izudin 'Izo' Zunić during the first half of her career, but beginning in 2018, formed a partnership with Great Britain's Mark Gellard.[3][5]

Tennis careerEdit

YouthEdit

As a youth she represented local club Grunwald Poznań with successes at junior level.[6]

2010Edit

 
Magda Linette in 2009

In May, Linette received a wildcard to the qualifying draw of the Warsaw Open, a Premier-level tournament. She beat her doubles partner Paula Kania in straight sets but lost to Anna Chakvetadze. In June, she won her first professional tournament in Szczecin as a wildcard entrant.[7] In July, she made it to the final of the ITF Circuit tournament at Toruń but lost to top seed Ksenia Pervak, in straight sets.[8]

Magda Linette won another two ITF titles in August, in Hechingen and Versmold, both in Germany. In Hechingen, as a qualifier, she defeated Sílvia Soler Espinosa of Spain, and in Versmold, she beat Irina-Camelia Begu in straight sets.[9]

She continued to play $25k tournaments and won her fourth title of the season in Katowice, where she defeated Eva Birnerová in three sets. The week after, she reached another final in Zagreb but lost to Renata Voráčová in three sets, after 21 consecutive wins on the ITF Women's Circuit. She reached the final in Opole, losing to Sandra Záhlavová in three sets.

2011Edit

In early February, Linette played for the first time as a member of Poland Fed Cup team. She defeated Anne Kremer in straight sets, but lost her three other matches. In May, she made her first appearance in a Grand Slam tournament, playing in the qualifying rounds.

2012Edit

Starting the season with several early exits, Magda Linette reached her first singles final in over 18 months at the $10k event of Florence in May but lost to Anaïs Laurendon. She reached a $25k final in Kristinehamn a month later, defeated by Sacha Jones from Australia. In Ystad, she won her first doubles title with her friend Katarzyna Piter.

 
Linette at Flushing Meadows for the US Open

She won the $10k of Prague after beating Kateřina Siniaková and Zuzana Luknárová without dropping a set, lifting her fifth singles trophy in career and the first since September 2010.

In October and November, Linette got some of her best wins of the season by beating Eleni Daniilidou in Limoges, Monica Puig in Nantes, and Karolína Plíšková in Équeurdreville. She added two more doubles titles to her prize list, including her first $50k level trophy in Limoges with compatriot Sandra Zaniewska. In December, she ended her season by winning another tournament in doubles with Katarzyna Piter in Ankara.

Getting through WTA tournament qualifying at the Baku Cup, Linette made her second appearance in a main draw at this level. She defeated Julia Cohen, runner-up of the previous edition, then Kristýna Plíšková to reach the quarterfinals where she benefited from a controversial retirement of Ons Jabeur.[10] She lost in her first WTA semifinals to Shahar Pe'er.

Linette started to compete in successive indoor hardcourt events in France and got more success. She reached the semifinals at $50k Joué-lès-Tours. The week after, she won her eighth doubles title, pairing up with Viktorija Golubic. She competed in her first $50,000+H singles final in Nantes, falling to Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

In September, she played a series of WTA events. At Guangzhou, she reached her first WTA doubles final, partnering Alizé Cornet.

In late October, she won the WTA 125K Ningbo International Open, defeating sixth seed Wang Qiang in the final; it was the biggest title of her career.[11]

2015: First top-100 seasonEdit

Linette won a Grand Slam match for the first time when she beat her compatriot Urszula Radwańska at the US Open, but then she lost to Agnieszka Radwańska. She reached the Japan Open final, peaking at a ranking of No. 64.

2016-2018Edit

Linette reached the quarterfinals at the Katowice Open and the Pan Pacific Open. At the end of the year, she was ranked No. 96.

Linette's season in 2017 was highlighted by third tour-level semifinal of her career at Kuala Lumpur and the semifinals at the Malaysian Open. She appeared in her third career WTA Tour doubles final at Bogotá (with Cepede Royg), having been runner-up at 2014 Guangzhou and 2016 Hong Kong.[12] In 2018, Linette advanced to the quarterfinals at the Taiwan Open and at the Copa Colsanitas in Bogotá.

2019-2020: First WTA titles and top 50Edit

In August, Linette won the first edition of the Bronx Open, her first WTA Tour title.[13] The following week, Linette continued at Flushing Meadows where she lost to defending champion Naomi Osaka in the second round of the US Open.[14] Linette cracked the top 50 for the first time in her career, after reaching the second round of the US Open.

Linette reached her third WTA Tour final at the Korea Open, losing to Karolína Muchová.[15]

In February, Linette won the Thailand Open, rising to a career-high ranking of No. 33. In December, she won the WTA Fan Favorite Shot of the Year, which she performed in round two of the Thailand Open against Peng Shuai.[16]

2021: WTA semifinal, new coach, first Grand Slam doubles semifinal, two Grand Slam singles 3rd roundsEdit

Linette started the season at the end of March due to a knee injury. In May, she advanced to her first semifinal since triumphing at the Hua Hin Championships last February. At Strasbourg, she defeated Yulia Putintseva in the quarterfinal before losing a three-set semifinal match against Sorana Cîrstea.[17]

On May 21st, Linette posted on Instagram that she started a new coaching partnership with Dawid Celt, who was previously coaching Agnieszka Radwańska.[18]

At the French Open, Linette defeated Chloé Paquet and No. 1 seed Ashleigh Barty. In the third round, she lost to Ons Jabeur in three sets. At the same tournament in doubles, she reached the semifinals, partnering with American Bernarda Pera, for the first time in her career.

Linette continued at Wimbledon, where she defeated Amanda Anisimova and No. 3 seed Elina Svitolina to advance to the third round. In the third round, she lost to Paula Badosa in three sets.

She lost her opening match at the US Open to Coco Gauff.

Playing styleEdit

 
Linette playing a slice backhand, a shot that she uses frequently to break her opponent's rhythm.

Linette started out defensive player, whose game was primarily built around her strong movement and consistent ball striking from the baseline. The Pole has, however, began finding an increasing amount of success after altering her game style away from being a counterpuncher, to actively creating opportunities to hit winners on the court. Ever since partnering with Mark Gellard, Linette also worked on improving the mental aspect of her game.[19]

"My whole life, I've needed a bit more time for everything![...] You have a different starting point but you're measured by the same measures as everybody else."

 —Linette on the lack of institutional support in Poland and having her most successful season at the age of 28.[4]

Her strengths on court are her speed, footwork, court coverage, and anticipation.[19] Her strongest groundstroke is her two-handed backhand, which is hit flat and with depth, and which is responsible for many of the winners she accumulates on court. Her forehand is also strong, and is hit with topspin, making it a safe and reliable shot.

Having spent a significant time on the doubles circuit as well, Linette has developed solid volleying skills and often looks to finish points off at the net. She is capable of introducing drop shots and sliced backhands into points, constantly breaking up an opponent's rhythm, and to attempt to draw unforced errors out of aggressive players.

Linette's serve is not particularly strong, with her first serve averaging 95 mph (153 km/h) and her second serve averaging 80 mph (130 km/h), but is reliable, meaning that, whilst she does not ace frequently, double faults are also uncommon. She is a strong player on return, also, effectively neutralising strong first serves with a backhand down-the-line or a cross-court forehand.

Notes

  1. ^ a b The first Premier 5 event of the year has switched back and forth between the Dubai Tennis Championships and the Qatar Open since 2009. Dubai was classified as a Premier 5 event from 2009–2011 before being succeeded by Doha for the 2012–2014 period. In 2015, Dubai regained its Premier 5 status while Doha was demoted to Premier status. The two tournaments have since alternated status every year.
  2. ^ a b In 2014, the Pan Pacific Open was downgraded to a Premier event and replaced by the Wuhan Open.
