Linette vs Raducanu: prediction for the WTA Seoul match
Magda Linette approached the start of Seoul tournament in a great form. One week ago, Polish player reached the final of Chennai tournament. She lost the title match to Linda Fruhvirtova (6:4, 3:6, 4:6).
Magda extended her success in South Korea. At the start of the tournament she secured a victory over Hartono (6:2, 7:5), after that Linette had to play three sets against Mladenovic (4:6, 7:6, 6:2).
Emma Raducanu approached the start of Seoul tournament after an unsuccessful performance at Portoroz. British player suffered a sensational second round defeat to Friedsam in Slovenia (5:7, 6:0, 3:6).
Emma didn't lose a single set in first two matches at South Korea. In the first round she defeated the Japanese player, Uchijima (6:2, 6:4). After that, Raducanu secured a narrow victory over Wickmayer (6:3, 7:5).
In two of four latest matches of Linette tiebreaks were played
In three of five latest matches of Raducanu more games were played in the second set than in the first one
Linette gained momentum and she is in a great physical condition, despite a deep run into the Chennai tournament during the previous week. Raducanu is yet to play against the strong opponent, so it is hard to assess her current form. We think that Polish player is underrated by the bookmakers, so we offer to place a bet on Linette to win.
