On January 20 2020 Magda Linette and Arantxa Rus faced each other in a match from WTA Australia Open in Melbourne.
Magda Linette has a very strong character, so that at any moment can turn the tide of the fight. In the previous match, not only two sets were lost, but in the third at first everything turned out not in the best way, but still there was a sensation, as it was possible to turn the tide of the match and achieve victory. This season Magda holds only the second tournament, so it has not yet been possible to reach the peak of form. However, in the past, Challenger managed to reach the semifinals, where there was a defeat in the fifth set from an uncomfortable opponent in style. This tournament is much more significant than the previous one, so there is no doubt that Linette will show great motivation and try to go as far as possible. Moreover, on the ground she knows how to play and easily withstands protracted feeds. Yes, Magda Linette likes to dictate her terms of the game more, but in some cases it turns out to act successfully depending on the style of the opponent.
The current form that Arantxa Rus demonstrates is still far from optimal, so it is necessary to play about a dozen more fights to reach the maximum of its capabilities. So far this year there has been participation in only one tournament, where it did not work out to qualify and break into the main draw. Although, in the qualification were not the most difficult opponents. As for this tournament, then Arantxa constantly shows poor results, and last year there was a relegation in the first match. Now the same thing may well happen, because Rus has not yet shown her powerful serve, but you can only see a bad game on the back line and a lot of marriage at the reception. In part, this can still be attributed to the beginning of the season and the fact that Arantxa Rus does not really know how to play hard, preferring clay courts more. But, if she does not work to improve his game, he may leave the first hundred of the rating.
