Magda Lynet finished her US Open Grand Slam performance in the first round. The tennis player from Poznan lost at the opening in New York to the home team, Cory Gauff, seeded at 21, 7:5, 3:6, 4:6.
Lynette failed to fire only 17-year-old Gauff, who is currently the greatest hope of American tennis. After pulling the ladder, it was clear that an American woman in very good physical condition would not be an easy obstacle to overcome. Despite her young age, she shined a lot during major events. From eight previous entries in Grand Slam tournaments, she has reached at least 1/8 finals four times.
In the week before the start of the US Open, taking the 48th place in the world rankings, the girl from Poznan decided to play in the WTA event in Cleveland, where she reached the semi-finals. Earlier in August in San Jose, she was eliminated in the previous round. Meanwhile, she lost her first matches in prestigious 1000-ranked events in Montreal and Cincinnati, but then faced higher ranked competitors. It was the same on Monday in New York.
She and Geoff were playing unevenly that day. In the first phase of the first set, they both focused on a strong serve, but then there were a lot of errors in their game. For a long time, there were no cases of separation, but most often it was the responsibility of David Sylt, who watched her match in the company of his wife Agnieszka Radwijska, as she had problems keeping her own order. It was Lynette who lost her service game with a score of 4:3 to her opponent, but then scored a “break” herself. And that followed after him Medical break at the request of a Polish woman who reported problems with her left ankle. After the game resumed, the hit followed, winning three more matches and the entire match. The task was facilitated by her opponent, who was often mistaken in the end.
The Poznan player also successfully started the second stage – in which she was leading 2-0. But later, the initiative that qualified for the quarter-finals of this year’s French Open, which has scored as many as five consecutive games, took its toll. Lynette was unable to make up for the loss.
Jove advanced 4:0 in the deciding set. The Polish woman showed some good manners, but there were also some mistakes on her part. The representative of the hosts also at one point did not avoid her – she lost her passes in the sixth inning, indicating a double foul at the end. Linette cut the loss soon after to 3-4, but In the end, the American did not allow herself to slip anymore and maintained the advantage, winning a duel for two and a half hours.
For these two players, the best score in the New York event so far is round three. Goff reached her in 2019, and the woman from Poznan the following season.
Now a talented teenager from the United States will face more experienced native Sloane Stephens, the winner of the 2017 New York Championships.
Kamil Majherzuk also withdrew from the first round of the tournament. On Tuesday, the two remaining Polish singers will join the match at Flushing Meadows – Iga wietic, seeded “7”, and Hubert Hurkacz, appearing “10”.
