Tuesday’s clash between Magda Linette and Valeria Sawinjic in the first round of the WTA 250 hard court tournament in Nanchang ended in a major upset. How did the Russian media report on the success of their tennis player over the Polish one?

The favorite for the match in the first round of the 2023 Jiangxi Open was Magda Linette (WTA 23), seeded second. Standing in her way was Waleria Sawinjic (WTA 146), with whom the Pole has so far had a positive balance in meetings on international courts.

Their match on Tuesday in Nanchang was full of twists and turns. In the end, after three hours and two minutes of fighting, Sawinich won 7:5, 3:6, 7:6(3) and advanced to the 1/8 finals (more here).

For the Sawins, the victory over Linette was one of the greatest victories of their careers. Despite this, it is difficult to talk about euphoria in the Russian media.
