Magda Linette (born 12 February 1992) is a Polish professional tennis player. She has a career-high singles ranking of world No. 19 achieved in March 2023. She has reached six finals on the WTA Tour, winning two titles, the semifinal of the 2023 Australian Open, and the third round of the other three major championships.

Linette made her first appearance in a WTA tournament main draw at the Internationaux de Strasbourg in May 2013, where she also scored her first match win at this level. The same year, she reached her first WTA semifinal in Baku, coming from qualifying. Linette won her first WTA 125 title at the 2014 Ningbo International Open, and her first WTA Tour title at the 2019 Bronx Open. Her best result in WTA Premier tournaments is the quarterfinals of 2016 Pan Pacific Open.

In 2020, she earned the Fan Favorite Shot of the Year award by the WTA for a slice forehand that she played against Peng Shuai en route to her second WTA Tour title at the Thailand Open.

Personal life[edit]

Magda Linette was born on 12 February 1992 in Poznań to Tomasz Linette and Beata Linette.[2] Her father is a tennis coach and her mother is an educator.[3] Linette was coached by Izudin Zunić during the first half of her career, but beginning in 2018, formed a partnership with Great Britain's Mark Gellard.[2][4]

She reached the final in Opole, losing to Sandra Záhlavová in three sets.

In December, she ended her season by winning another tournament in doubles with Katarzyna Piter in Ankara.

Back in Europe in late March, Linette reached semifinals of the indoor hardcourt tournament in Tallinn, falling to Aliaksandra Sasnovich. At the end of the month, she lost the singles final at the $25k Civitavecchia event to Anna Karolína Schmiedlová.

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.[9] She lost her first semifinal match on WTA Tour to Shahar Pe'er.

Playing style[edit]

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

Linette started out as a 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.[28]

"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.[3]

Her strengths on court are her speed, footwork, court coverage, and anticipation.[28] 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.
