Her next match will be against former world No. 1 Karolina Pliskova of Czech Republic.
The win over Garcia was Linett’s fourth top-10 win of his career.
Lynette said in one of her interviews, I still can’t believe what happened. I don’t want to say that I didn’t expect it because coming on the court I was sure how well I was playing, but she is also a good opponent.
Pliskova, on the other hand, extended her dominance over China’s Zhang Shuai to advance to her 11th career Grand Slam quarterfinal. The Czech player’s 6-0, 6-4 victory in just 55 minutes improved his career record against Zhang to 8-0 and sealed his fourth Australian Open last eight appearance.
