Karolina Pliskova is overrated lots to prove

I think Karolina Pliskova has a serious problem dealing with pressure she has lost I think five finals this year! How does a woman lose five finals? This is a sign of a lack of mental toughness on Karolina part. And to lose to a 35 year old woman lol! Girl go see a psychologist!

Re: Karolina Pliskova is overrated lots to prove

She lost P470 finals and all against current Top10 players. No shame there.

I think she isn't overrated, probably she hasn't even hit a proper radar. She needs some consitency but she is still young and needs to gather some experience. Not every player is a mental giant, she has a lot of space to still improve.

Also this is her first season as a top player she has to prove herself yet.

Re: Karolina Pliskova is overrated lots to prove

I've never seen a top player with such compact groundstrokes, perhaps not since Andre Agassi (although his is not as extreme). I'm surprised she's able to make it work. She has a great serve and just needs to develop the mental toughness and consistency. I don't think she's overrated.

Re: Karolina Pliskova is overrated lots to prove

Things can change.. Kerber lost in four finals last year. But this year she won four finals and only lost in her very last final of the year..

I don't see Pliskova being particularly overrated..

Re: Karolina Pliskova is overrated lots to prove

If she is overrated by reaching all the event finals, then those who never reach or even come close to reach a single final are useless then if the logic applies, which includes any of your favourite.

I think you have not seen any of those matches. She played super today and if she lost it's all but not mental/pressure. She found someone who was playing great too and a couple of points decided it all. Same happened in her losses to Kvitova or Kerber. Am actually impressed on how Karolina can play.

Re: Karolina Pliskova is overrated lots to prove

it's more like she's overplayed than overrated with that heavy schedule of hers in '15 and playing dubs in most of those tourneys as well.
and somehow i really do think karo might be one of the very few athletes out there who is living through her sport in almost every regard. she's not and never was in for some off court crap like photo sessions and sponsor appointments, she just leaves her passion on the courts and plays the actual game the way she feels it. and considering her decent looks with her sexy long legs and the laid back attitude with no intention for bitching/drama/swearing i really wonder what else a spectator could ask for who wants to watch tennis as a pure sport...


Азаранка. Plíšková. Đoković.

cheering for crowd favorites is so fedal.

So far, the only poster who agrees with is thejuju.
I know why: you included " And to lose to a 35 year old woman lol!"
That is not a credible endorsement.


Most promising new comers have problem dealing with the pressure of high expectations.
Some grow out of thta phase and overcome it, other don't.
It is tool early to tell, but she has got a powerful game

Re: Karolina Pliskova is overrated lots to prove

Not really much she can approve on apart from movement and tactical play but even then she won't take her game much further

the serve will always be her main weapon
