Poland’s Magda Linette upset former world No.1 Karolina Pliskova, 6:3, 7:5, to reach the final four at the Australian Open in Melbourne.
The 29-year-old had already announced plans to retire when in 2018 she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and said that this year’s Australian Opener would be her last.
Having defeated Donna Vekic of Croatia (7-5, 6-3), Iga Swiatek of Poland advanced to the fourth round of the Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne on Saturday.
Poles Iga Świątek and Łukasz Kubot gained the so-called 'wild card' and will play together at the Australian Open Grand Slam tournament, Artur Bochenek, from the Warsaw Sport Group Open, announced on Wednesday.
The Grand Slam Opener win is another step forward in the Warsaw teen’s impressive sporting career.
