Saturday was a fantastic holiday for Polish tennis fans. Magda Linette and Hubert Hurkacz just before the start of the US Open played in the finals of two US tournaments. In addition, they both won their meetings with the rivals above, thanks to which they not only made a lot of money but also made their campaign in the rankings!
Although Magda Linette was not a favorite during the Bronx Open, she defeated several senior rivals along the way and in the final she won after a three-hundred fight with Camila Giorgi (then No. 58 WTA). In New York, she not only got her first plate of her career to win the WTA tournament, but also $ 43,000.
– I'm 27 years old, so it's not a very young age for the first victory. It means a lot to me. Triumph gives additional power – trust – Linette told WTAtennis.com. The Polish woman also thanked the audience, who gathered in large numbers supported her throughout the meeting.
Victory in New York also gives her a big promotion in the WTA rankings ahead of the upcoming US Open. In last week's ranking, the Polish woman took 80th place, and now she has advanced 27 places and 53rd place. Hubert Hurkacz also had great success in the United States.
Wroclaw won in Winston-Salem with Benoit Pair and also won his first ATP tournament of his career. In his case, marketing in the rankings was not that impressive. The 22-year-old jumped from 41st to 35th place. His account was credited to almost a hundred thousand dollars.
