Aryna Sabalenka Form


Aryna Sabalenka arrived at the Linz Open full of confidence after winning the Ostrava Open just a week ago. She did so by seeing compatriot Victoria Azarenka in the final in straight sets.

Sabalenka was the favourite coming into the Linz Open and the top seed. Unsurprisingly she defeated Jasmine Paolini 6-4 6-4 in the first round.

It was even easier for the Czech in the round of 16 as Stefanie Vogele came and went without much of a fuss – Sabalenka winning 6-0 6-3. Oceane Dodin was Aryna Sabalenka’s quarter-final opponent and didn’t offer much resistance either. With the score at 6-3 3-3, Dodin left the court injured.

Sabalenka smashed 14 aces on her way to 7-5 4-6 6-3 win over Barbora Krejcikova in the Linz Open semi-final.

Facing fifth seed Veronika Kudermetova in the quarter-final, Mertens couldn’t afford to lose focus as she had in the previous two rounds. That spurred her on as she won comfortably 6-4 6-1.
