Linetskaya has won seven singles and one doubles titles on the ITF tour in her career. On 4 July 2005, she reached her best singles ranking of world number 35. On 20 February 2006, she peaked at world number 283 in the doubles rankings.
Linetskaya was born in Moscow, and is Jewish and plays with a Star of David necklace around her neck. She is coached by George Akopian. Her mother introduced her to tennis at age 6; she hit balls against school building for practice. Her father's Simon Linetsky is a professor of mathematics with a black belt in karate, and her mother Maria is an artist. She studied psychology for three years at Moscow University and plans to study via online education to receive an MBA. She speaks Russian, English and some Dutch. She is superstitious about stepping on court lines.
In late November 2005, Linetskaya's coach Joe Giuliano was barred for life by the WTA Tour for violating Section 14, part IV, of the WTA code of conduct, which bars coaches from "non-consensual sexual contact". Her father, Simon Linetskiy, was suspended for two years. The bans resulted from events incidents at La Costa's Acura Classic in August 2005. Linetskiy was charged with suspicion of battery after his daughter had injuries treated at a hospital.
She did not play between January 2006 and February 2007. She dropped off the rankings computer altogether.
In February 2007 she won the Montechoro, Portugal tournament. The following month she won both the Ramat HaSharon 2 and the Raanana tournaments in Israel, without dropping a set in either tournament. In doubles, she won at Raanana with Tzipora Obziler.
