Tennis: Unseeded Linette stuns former world No. 1 Pliskova to reach first Grand Slam semi

Tennis: Unseeded Linette stuns former world No. 1 Pliskova to reach first Grand Slam semi

MELBOURNE – Unheralded Pole Magda Linette continued her dream run into the semi-finals of the Australian Open on Wednesday, stunning former world No. 1 Karolina Pliskova in a deserved 6-3, 7-5 victory on Rod Laver Arena.

The world No. 45 played wonderfully controlled tennis in the opening set as twice Grand Slam finalist Pliskova racked up 14 unforced errors under the blazing sun on the main show court.

Pliskova had to raise her game in the second set but Linette had the answer to everything the Czech threw at her and broke for 6-5 before serving out nervelessly for the win.

Linette will battle for a place in the final against fifth seed Aryna Sabalenka or Donna Vekic, who face off in Wednesday’s second women’s quarter-final.
