Jessica Pegula v Magda Linette Head to Head
The two players have never met before on the WTA Tour.
Pegula Beats Collins
World No. 3 Jessica Pegula just beat her compatriot Danielle Collins 6-1, 7-6(0) to reach the fourth round for the third successive year in Miami. The last time around, she made it as far as the semifinal.
Combined with her opening-round win over Katherine Sebov, Pegula is now 17-5 in 2023.
The 29-year-old has been wonderfully consistent, having won the United Cup and taking home the runner-up silverware from the Qatar Open. In addition, Jessica was among the final four in Dubai, and most recently, she made it to the R16 in the BNP Paribas Open.
She has been in remarkable form and will be quite optimistic about her prospects of beating Linette.

Linette Upsets Azarenka
Magda Linette has posted an impressive win in Miami as she beat former world number one Victoria Azarenka 7-6(3), 2-6, 6-4 in two and a half hours. The Belarusian gave it her all – in fact, she had a better service game – but Linette dug deep to hold her own. In the preceding round, she had beaten Evgeniya Rodina in straight sets.
Her record for the season is now 12-6. Notably, a significant portion of her victories was earned during her major semifinal debut in Melbourne, where she beat Anett Kontaveit, Ekaterina Alexandrova, Caroline Garcia, and Karolina Pliskova.
Later, Magda reached the quarterfinal in Merida, after which, her form took a hit with disappointing early exits in Austin and Indian Wells.
These results have also given her a great deal of valuable experience – which she can use to face Pegula.
Pegula v Linette Prediction and Tip
This should be a good match. Linette has improved her game greatly over the last couple of seasons, posting decent stats of 40-29 in 2021. She should be able to give Pegula a run for her money – especially after her brilliant performance against Azarenka.
That said, the American will start as the heavy favourite owing to her far superior consistency.
The 2023 WTA Miami Open will be played from March 20 to April 2. You can get all the tennis betting news with our tennis betting blog here. Also, get the rest of the tennis match previews here.
