Karolina Muchova and Magda Linette meet in the quarterfinals of the 2019 tennis Bronx Open.
Karolina Muchova is coming off a straight sets win over Kristie Ahn that took 16 games to decide. In the victory, Muchova won 81 percent of her first serve points and 63 percent of her second serve points. Muchova won 74 percent of her total service points and converted on five of her 15 break points. Muchova got 62 percent of her first serves in play, faced just one break point and hit seven aces. Muchova has now won six of her last seven matches overall. Muchova has won seven of her last nine matches in straight sets. Muchova looks to win three straight matches for the third time in her last five tournaments. Muchova has won six of her last eight matches on hard court.
Magda Linette is coming off a straight sets win over Aliaksandra Sasnovich that took 17 games to decide. In the victory, Linette won 88 percent of her first serve points and 56 percent of her second serve points. Linette won 71 percent of her total service points and converted on four of her six break points. Linette got 48 percent of her first serves in play, faced just one break point and hit 10 aces. Linette has hit a combined 17 aces in her first two matches and has won each of her last 10 sets when you include qualifying for this tournament. Linette looks to win back-to-back matches on the main tour for the first time since Hua Hin back in February. Linette has won six of her last seven matches on hard court.
There’s no match history between these two players.
Linette has a shot here if she keeps getting free points with her serve, but it’s Muchova who has been playing better overall and has had far and away more success on the main tour this season. With a quarterfinal trip in Wimbledon and two effortless victories here, Muchova has positioned herself nicely for another deep run.
I like Muchova to reach the semifinals in New York.
