At least the better Karolina won

The stadium looked pretty empty though
Thank you KL for giving us this tournament for 4 years

Congrats to Karolina!

1st set was poor but she definitely stepped up in the last 2 sets (with the help of BMS).

Tough for BMS, hopefully she'll win her first title soon.

Re: KL F Karolina Pliskova bags her first title def Mattek-Sands 16 75 63

Out of nowhere.

Both were a bit randomly in this final after not so good months.

Pliskova deserves her title, of course, but she did not face one single Top 50 player.

Titel [Suicide T.]: Stuttgart 2017, Doha 2017, Tokyo II 2017, Doha 2016, Linz 2015,
Marrakesch 2014, YEC Singapur 2014, Rom 2013, Guangzhou 2013, Peking 2012 & Fes 2012
[TT]: ITF Cagnes-Sur-Mer 2011 & ITF Hechingen 2012
[FITD]: Biel 2017, Tokyo I & II 2017, s'Hertogenbosch 2016, Peking 2016 & Budapest 2013

BMS was dominating the first set, was the better player at the start of the second set, but she kept Pliskova in the match with dozens of UEs. Pliskova started to play better and better, and won the third set convincingly.

Re: KL Last F: Karolina Pliskova bags her first title def Mattek-Sands 16 75 63

this Pliskova is quite a servebot, ain't she?
Anyway, a player with more firepower won, so it's all good then

Poor Beth She won't get many more chances at a title, so she should have taken advantage of this

BMS I think she choked? or should say Pliskova just stepped up since she's got nothing to lose?
Congrats!

Bye KL! You'll not be missed and good riddance for the tour.

This serve-bot really knows how to serve Barely didn't lose any point on her serve at all in the third. Won 90% of first serves in the second and the third. Movement is ridiculous though.

Please "like" my FB page: https://www.facebook.com/AGFfotografia

There you can watch all my pics of Madrid and other tournaments Help me to share it ^^
