WTA Indian Wells 2023: Emma Raducanu vs. Magda Linette Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2023 WTA Indian Wells tournament as Emma Raducanu takes on Magda Linette in the second round on Saturday, March 11, 2023.

Former US Open champion Emma Raducanu is hunting her second successive win – a feat she is yet to achieve in 2023 – when she squares off against Australian Open semifinalist Magda Linette. Who will prevail and advance into the third round of the 2023 Indian Wells tournament?

Emma Raducanu vs. Magda Linette Match Preview

Emma Raducanu was back in action for the first time in almost two months and the Briton did not have any fitness issues in beating Danka Kovinic 6-2 6-3 in just 81 minutes. Despite going down 0-2 in both sets, Raducanu still showcased flashes of brilliance to keep the Montenegrin at bay. She will to equal her best showing at Indian Wells (third round in 2022) when she faces Australian Open semifinalist Magda Linette.

Magda Linette, meanwhile, had a bye in the first round and will therefore play in her first match in almost two weeks. Linette has been slow off the blocks since her scintillating run to the Australian Open semifinals. The Pole was fortunate to escape Panna Udvardy in Merida and was sent packing at the first hurdle in Austin. Regardless of her exploits in Melbourne, this will be a different challenge for Linette at Indian Wells where she has never advanced beyond the second round.

Emma Raducanu vs. Magda Linette Prediction and Pick

Emma Raducanu leads Magda Linette 1-0 in their head-to-head. Their solitary meeting took place last season with the Briton toppling the Pole in Seoul. Raducanu dispelled any doubt about a potential wrist injury, as she played very well against a tough first-round opponent in Danka Kovinic. From the thrills of her Australian Open run, Linette has come crashing down to earth with a couple of early exits in February. Her performances have clearly not been up to the standards she set in Melbourne. We like the fit-again Raducanu to string back-to-back wins for the first time this season at Indian Wells.
