Australian Open 2023: Karolina Pliskova vs. Magda Linette Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2023 Australian Open as Karolina Pliskova takes on Magda Linette in the quarterfinal on Wednesday, January 25, 2023.

Will Karolina Pliskova be another power-hitting victim to succumb to Magda Linette? The Polish World No. 45 has surpassed expectations at the 2023 Australian Open. Another win would be added bonus, and Linette is not ready to put a capstone to this journey. Who will prevail and move into the semifinals?

Karolina Pliskova has turned back time and played solidly throughout the opening week of the Australian Open. Now ranked 31 in the WTA rankings, Pliskova had had a less harrowing time as compared to Magda Linette in her passage to the last eight. The big-serving Czech is yet to drop a set and has lost more than four games in a set just once in her opening four matches. If Pliskova stacks up to those numbers on Wednesday, she will likely cruise into the semifinals.

Magda Linette, by contrast, has had one heck of a ride. She had never advanced into the second week of a Grand Slam before this year’s Australian Open. Linette was also pitted against a handful of clean strikers on the women’s tour in each round but has navigated that path successfully with some stonking wins. Can she add another and reach the semifinals at the expense of Karolina Pliskova?

Karoline Pliskova leads Magda Linette 7-2 in their head-to-head. This includes matches at all levels from the ITF circuit to the WTA Tour. They played twice last year, with Pliskova winning in three sets at the US Open and Linette avenging that defeat at the Billie Jean King Cup in November. Pliskova has looked frighteningly good, romping to the quarterfinals without breaking a sweat. And it will be interesting to see how the Czech fares in her first acid test of this year’s Australian Open. Linette has shown tremendous qualities against higher-ranked opposition. I think the Pole will be unfazed by Pliskova’s power.
