Qualifier Linette wins Inaugural Bronx Open for first career WTA title
The 27-year-old Polish took out four seeds en route to the crown.
Published Aug 24, 2019
On Saturday, qualifier Magda Linette prevailed over Camila Giorgi, 5-7, 7-5, 6-4, to capture the inaugural NYJTL Bronx Open.
After failing to seal the deal in the second set, Giorgi broke in the first game of the deciding third set to surge ahead. Down 4-3, Linette found an opening in the eighth game, winning the next three to close out the match in three well-fought sets.
The match lasted two hours and 32 minutes, with the Polish claiming her maiden career WTA title. She becomes the second qualifier on the WTA to win a title this season—Jil Teichmann won Prague in May. Next week, she open her US Open campaign against Astra Sharma.
Giorgi had come into New York riding a three-match losing streak, having lost in both Rogers Cup and Cincinnati openers. She faces Maria Sakkari in the US Open first round. It will be a rematch of their 2019 Cincinnati first-round match, which Sakkari won easily in straight sets.
