The 30-year old Linette is yet to drop a set in the Chennai Open and is on a top form in the tournament. The veteran enters the final as the favourite.
She began the tournament by dropping just six games in the first two rounds as she clinched victories against Moyuka Uchijima and Oksana Selekhmetova in straight sets.
In the quarterfinal, she faced seventh seed Rebecca Marino and it was a tough match with the first set going into the tie-breaker, she however managed to win it in straight sets.
In the semifinal, she faced unseeded Katy Swan and lead the contest 3-0 in the first set. However Swan soon pulled out due to a injury and Linette progressed to the final.
This is Linette’s first ever appearance in a final this season and she looks to win her third career title.

Her dream run continues

17-year old Linda Fruhvirtova has shown tremendous promise with her performances in the Chennai Open so far and looks set for the big stage in Tennis.
She defeated 2020 French Open semifinalist Nadia Podoroska in the semifinal and reached her first-ever WTA Tour final.
Fruhvirtova, who is ranked 130th in the world currently is soon to jump places in the world rankings and she will look to make her time in Chennai even more memorable as she aims to win her first-ever WTA title in her career.
The teenager started the tournament with a come-from behind victory in three sets against Chinese Taipei’s Liang En-shuo.
In the second round, she clinched an upset victory over fifth seed Rebecca Peterson with a straight set victory and entered the quarterfinal.
In the last-8 stage she clinched yet another upset win with a 6-4, 6-3 victory over Varvara Gracheva to enter her maiden WTA semifinal.
With her brilliant performances so far, Fruhvirtova was presented with the Margaret Court award for promising young player by the organisers of the Chennai Open.

Linette vs Fruhvitrova Head-to-Head: Both the players will be facing each other for the second time in their career and Linette leads the heads-to-head record 1-0. The 30-year old defeated the youngster in their first meeting last year at the Tennis in the Land event. While Linette will once again be the favourite this time around, Fruhvirtova has emerged as a giant killer as she has won higher ranked opponents in the tournament so far and is one opponent who cannot be taken lightly.
