Fourth Seed Caroline Garcia suffered a straight sets defeat against Magda Linette (6-7, 4-6) in 4th round of Australian Open women’s singles event. Garcia, World No. 4, was one of the favourites to go the distance in this year’s first Grand Slam but could not go beyond the 4th round. Garcia didn’t look confident in her last match as well but was able to overcome world number 158 Laura Siegemund in a 3-setter. This time, however, she couldn’t find a way past Linette.

France’s Garcia won 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 in 2hr 10min to reach the fourth round at the Australian Open for the first time since 2018.

“She played a great match, she was able to read me very well,” said a relieved Garcia, the fourth seed.

“I was getting more stressed and at the beginning I was super nervous.”

Garcia will play either 19th seed Ekaterina Alexandrova of Russia or Magda Linette of Poland, the world number 45, next.

It was a rollercoaster ride on Kia Arena, one of the smaller stadium courts at Melbourne Park, in front of a loud but well-behaved night session crowd.

“I got a lot of support and that means a lot, and thank you so much,” Garcia said of the rocking atmosphere. “It was great. I didn’t know what to expect when I came here.”
