Magda Linette vs Leylah Fernandez – Match Predictions

Leylah Fernandez to Win

In what promises to be a captivating showdown, Fernandez enters the match as the favoured candidate to emerge victorious. Despite her lower ranking, the Canadian has consistently scraped out wins in any competition she can enter prior to the French Open. Adding to her confidence is a previous triumph over Magda Linette at Roland Garros in 2020, where Fernandez demonstrated her ability to conquer the Polish ace. Armed with her fearless and aggressive style of play, Leylah Fernandez is poised to replicate her past success and secure another well-deserved victory in their upcoming encounter.

2-1 to Leylah Fernandez

We anticipate another fierce battle on the clay courts as Fernandez and Linette go head-to-head once again. With both players not performing at their peak, it is expected that blows will be exchanged throughout the match. Adding to the excitement is the fact that their previous two encounters have taken place on clay surfaces, resulting in hard-fought three-set battles. Given Fernandez’s past success against her rival at the French Open and her tendency to give strong performances here, we can anticipate a closely contested affair with the Canadian ultimately prevailing with a 2-1 scoreline in her favour.

Magda Linette vs Leylah Fernandez Preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the French Open.

Magda Linette

The seasoned Polish tennis player had a career-defining run at the Australian Open, where she defeated top-ranked players en route to the semifinals. Since then, Linette has struggled to build on that success in subsequent tournaments. Her inability to string together consecutive victories in her last four tournaments and a lack of quarterfinal appearances since her memorable Melbourne campaign highlights the challenges she has faced in maintaining consistency. At Roland-Garros, she has experienced early exits in four of her eight main draw appearances.

Leylah Fernandez

The talented Canadian tennis player has experienced both triumph and adversity throughout her young career. With a fearless and aggressive playing style, Fernandez captured the attention of the tennis world with a remarkable run at the 2021 Roland-Garros. Her past success in the first rounds of major tournaments, including a 3-0 record at Roland-Garros, serves as a reminder of her resilience and the potential for a comeback. As she steps onto the courts once again, Fernandez aims to rekindle her fiery form and showcase her undeniable talent to the tennis world.
