Tokyo QF: Kerber snatches 1st Top 10 win in 2017 d Pliskova 76 75

Really impressive for Angie, even if the BP conversion has been a nightmare but finally breaking to seal the win.

The final game one of the most exciting of a very watchable match.

Honestly, Kerber could win this tournament.

Re: Tokyo QF: Kerber snatches 1st Top 10 win in 2017 d Pliskova 76 75

Sept 22nd 2017: The day two former world #1´s remembered how to play tennis. So stupid.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.

Angie's back . Would love to see a Kerber/Mugs final. I would be happy with either player winning, although Angie needs it much more.

It was so beautiful Pliskova played really well too. Great match to watch. Now where was this Angie all year? Great aggression and the serve wasn't broken once and only one double fault. Amazing win for her and hopefully her confidence now snatch this title

those two BH cc in the last game should be defensive strikes but turned out to be decisive slashers for Pliskie

This on court interview made me feel SO uncomfortable, Kerber can be so awkward sometimes.

My first match of this tournament, glad to see Kerber is playing well again. Hope Karolina sorts it out as well, I am hoping for a good WTA Finals.

I'd love to see stats from this match, because from what I saw it looked like Angie was hitting many, many winners. Her serve was always surprisingly excellent, making fantastic wide plays that she then followed up with winners. Karo played really well, too, and honestly, it was so close at the end that it was just a point here and there that separated them.

Re: Tokyo QF: Kerber snatches 1st Top 10 win in 2017 d Pliskova 76 75

Was it something like 14th BP she finally broke? It was also MP. This was a real good performance from Angie. Welcome back!

Have not seen Angelika serve with such confidence in ages. Her fight was also all kinds of

Karo was clutching on those BP saves but she made a few crucial mistakes. Can not afford those against Slam champ in form.
