Irina Begu returns to the circuit after a break of several weeks after the break from qualifying for the US Open tournament. She will take part in the Seoul tournament, which will not meet Magda Linette, who is in excellent form in the last period, in the first round.
▫️Irina starts very well in this qualifying tournament, with no notable results this season, currently being 99th WTA.
▫️He won several hard wins at the beginning of the season, reaching the quarter-finals in Budapest.
▫️The rest of the season was a bad one, with few tournaments played and without any notable results, the last tournament he took part in was the qualifications of the US Open tournament, where he was defeated in the second round.
▫️The 27-year-old Polish player currently ranks 45th in the WTA rankings, the best career ranking.
▫️She is a consistent player on all surfaces, very consistent, despite the fact that she has no main weapon in the game.
▫️But he is going through the best period of his career, managing to win the first WTA career title, in the Bronx tournament before the US Open, and in the last tournament played, in Nanchang, he reached the quarterfinals.
The two players have met twice so far, both games being won by Magda Linette, but they took place in 2010.

Tennis Prediction of the Day Irina Begu vs Magda Linette
Magda Linette starts as a favorite in this match and I expect to take advantage of Irina Begu’s lack of matches, which has not had any notable results lately, while the Polish is in the best part of her career. I expect her to confirm this form in this match and get a comfortable victory over romance.
