    Magda Linette Exits Strasbourg Quarterfinals Defeated by Madison Keys

    Magda Linette’s run at the WTA 500 tournament in Strasbourg came to an end in the quarterfinals, where she was defeated by Madison Keys. The Polish player fell 1-6, 3-6 to the American, who controlled the match from the start. 

    Keys asserted her dominance early on. Following an initial 1-1 tie, she won three straight games. At this point, the match was interrupted by rain, leading to a suspension of play for more than four hours. The extended break did not favour Linette, who quickly lost her serve upon resumption, resulting in a 1-6 loss in the first set.

    Although Linette showed some improvement in the second set, her difficulties persisted. She lost her second service game, giving Keys a 3-1 lead. The higher-ranked American secured another break late in the set, winning it 6-3.

    With this victory, Madison Keys moves on to the semifinals, where she will face Russian Ludmilla Samsonova.
