How similar/different are the games of Karolina & Kristyna Pliskova? (Pliskova Twins)

I'm wondering apart that Karolina is right handed and Kristyna is left handed, how similar/different are their games? I know both of them have great serve.
and who has more potential?

The both won Junior slams. Karolina won Australian Open 2010, then Kristyna followed her by winning Wimbledon 2010.

Kristyna just broke into the Top 100 at Australian Open 2013 a few weeks ago, and now Karolina followed her by winning her maiden title at Kuala Lumpur and broke into the Top 100. Now the pressure is back on Kris When will she win her maiden title?

Does one actually have a pleasant game to watch?

Just go to Pliskova forum and ask there. No reason to open a new thread for this.

Who are you? The forum admin/mod? They can move it there if they think it should.

I don't see anything wrong with asking this at GM.

Wich one is better ? As far as I know, now Karolina has a title, while Kristina has higher ranking. Can anyone actually tell them apart ?

This should stay here, as this girls are interesting (and confusing case) for me, and, as I suspect, for some other posters...

I'm alaways right, even when Im wrong...

Maybe Kris has more potential just because being a leftie might giver her so advantage, but their games are pretty much the same...

Jankovic | Goerges | Petkovic | Safarova | Hsieh | Tsurenko
Azarenka | Mitu | Voegele | Beck | Muguruza | Cibulkova
Koehler | Mladenovic | Garcia | Robson | Cepelova | Duval
Babos | Ormaechea | Jaksic | Gasparyan | Soylu
Allgurin | Kontaveit | Zacarias | Pigossi | Haddad Maia | Abduraimova
Konjuh | Bencic | Komardina | Haas | Jorovic | Galfi | Stollar

and the funny thing is Karo achieved a bit more so far

She won 9 ITF titles and now 1 WTA title at Kuala Lumpur. Kris only won 2 ITF titles.

I think it would come to who has better mental strength and dedication at the end

the big breakthrough of the first will make or break the other imo.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Re: How similar/different are the games of Karolina & Kristyna Pliskova? (Pliskova Tw

What I find amusing is the way the two have so regularly overtaken each other in the rankings. Whenever one of them leads the other you can be sure before long something will happen so that the other one is able to catch up. Kristyna had built up a fairly hefty lead over her sister prior to the start of Kuala Lumpur and what happens? Shazam!!!! Kristyna loses in the 1st round and Karolina wins the tournament and overtakes her in the rankings.

Extreme case, but it seems the two are continually flip-flopping with each other. As to who will have a better career I really think flipping coin would probably give you as much of a shot at predicting correctly as anything else.

Their games remind me of two sisters who played a few years ago, but I don't think they were twins, although they were born on the same day, I think

They are always so close in the ranks, they even had the same amount of points for a while

How could they be sisters and born on the same day but not twins?

You mean they are not identical twins?

Yes, it is if the mom gave birth around midnight

But i don't think it's possible to be siblings AND born in the same day and not being twins
