The tournament in Hua Hin is the first major in her career. In Thailand She started with the qualification, winning twice in two sets, and in the main draw Leonie started surprising: On her way, she defeated Lin Zhu, Wang Qiang and Nao Hibino who are the 70th, 27th and 84th rackets of the world respectfully, and in all three matches Kung was a clear underdog.
Moreover, These victories are not accidental: the Swiss shows a very good tennis. Although, it should be noted that the last two meetings were very difficult for the young Swiss, taking away a lot of her strength.
Magda Linette, a Polish athlete is ranked 42nd in the WTA ranking table. She came to this tournament as the main favorite, it is justified, since no one can resist her. This year, Magda played 9 games, of which she won 6 victories, suffered 3 defeats. On the way to the finals, she lost only one set to Wang Xinyu, with the rest of her opponents she had no problems.
At this tournament Linette is the 5th seeded and honestly, she was very lucky with the net: for the entire tournament she didn’t met any representative of the TOP-100. At the same time, in two extreme matches, she could not break the lead of the 4.5, which indicates a successful combination of circumstances in the result of which Linette got into the tournament finals. In tennis, she does not show anything supernatural: she keeps the pitch rather mediocre, although she plays well at the reception, it is worth paying attention to this. There is also a lack of stability in the game on the back line.
