Magda Linette vs Caroline Garcia Prediction and Odds: Australian Open

The 4th seed, Caroline Garcia is taking on the unseeded Polish player, Magda Linette in this fourth-round game. But before the first ball is struck, take a look at these two betting tips:

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Linette vs Garcia – Match Predictions

Caroline Garcia is the highest seed left in the bottom half of the women’s singles at the 2023 Australian Open. As the number 4 seed, really, she is tipped to make at least the semi-finals due to the way things have panned out. Yet standing in her way of progressing to the quarter-final is the number 45 in the world, Magda Linette. These two have played once in the past with Garcia emerging as the victor with a straight-sets win.

However, this previous clash was back in 2017, and both of them have progressed since then. With that said, Garcia is clearly the higher-ranked player. Subsequently, she is the favorite to win this match, which is why I’ve gone for the tennis predictions today that are mentioned below.

Garcia to Win 2-0

To state the obvious once again, I believe that Garcia will take the win in this match. Yet there isn’t a whole load of value in simply shooting for Garcia to win. Instead, I’ve chosen to go for Garcia in straight sets since the odds are then 1.85. 

Garcia to Win and Under 21.5 Games

To complement the market listed above, this one also looks appealing thanks to decent odds. Now, the odds are higher for this market compared with the other one too. And that’s because Garcia would need to win while reducing the number of games lost. Ideally, she’d need to win each set by 6-4 or better, which I believe she can do.

To gain a better understanding of these two players relating to the upcoming match, let me share some relative information for a quick preview right now:

Magda Linette Preview

With Magda Linette making the fourth round at the 2023 Australian Open, this is her best performance ever. She’s taken out the 16th seed in the second round followed by the 19th seed in the third round. So clearly, she’s playing good tennis. Yet this game against Garcia is a challenge that’s on a whole new level.

Caroline Garcia Preview

As the number 4 ranked player in the world, Caroline Garcia is obviously one of the favorites to win the tournament. Yet the Australian Open hasn’t always been a great event for the experienced French player. She’s only made the 4th round once before, and that was back in 2018. With that said, Garcia is in the form of her life after winning the WTA Finals last year while also making the semi-finals of the 2022 US Open.

Linette vs Garcia Head to Head

As touched upon earlier, Garcia has beaten Linette in their one and only meeting. This was a 6-3, 6-3 victory in Strasbourg back in 2017. And since that was almost six years ago, it doesn’t really hold much substance.
