Australian Open 2023 LIVE updates: Quarter-finals continue as Novak Djokovic, Andrey Rublev, Karolina Pliskova and Aryna Sabalenka take to the court

In Magda Linette’s maiden grand slam quarter-final appearance, she defeated former world No.1 Karolina Pliskova in straight sets 6-3, 7-5 and will now head to her first semi-final.

“I’m so emotional, I can’t really believe it,” Linette said post-win. “It’s a dream come true…I’m super grateful and happy.”

After dropping the first set, Pliskova increased the intensity in the second and started to play more aggressively – but Linette held her composure.

Linette also played a more disciplined game, as Pliskova had 36 unforced errors to 16.

Linette will next face either Aryna Sabalenka and Donna Vekic in the semi-finals, who battle it out next on Rod Laver Arena.
