Magda Linette had a 0-6 record in Grand Slam third-round matches. When she faced Ekaterina Alexadnrova, who was also trying to break through this barrier in a Major for the first time, that statistic weighed heavily on her shoulders. There will be two Polish players in the women’s draw of the last 16 after Linette defeated the Russian in straight sets, soaking up her strength like a sponge in water. With a stunning drop shot in the first game of the match, Linette immediately established her dominance in this match. In the opening set, the two players quickly traded breaks, but in game eight, Alexandrova was the next to falter, leaving Linette to serve for a one-set advantage. She beat Garcia and Pliskova in her next two matches.

Aryna Sabalenka and Belinda Bencic’s fourth-round match at the 2023 Australian Open will be a thrilling contest between the two reigning champions of Adelaide. The fifth seed at the Melbourne Major, Sabalenka, has had an outstanding start to the year. Without dropping a set, she began the season by taking home her 11th career title at the Adelaide International 1. The Belarusian entered the first Slam of the year in this excellent form. She advanced quickly into the round of 16, giving up just 14 games in the process. In her third-round match on Saturday, Sabalenka thrashed Elise Mertens, her former doubles partner, 6-2, 6-3, extending her winning streak to seven games. She beat Vekic and Bencic in her next two matches.
