Re: Kristyna Pliskova

She currently holds the record for the most aces (31) in a match on the WTA tour, which she set in a second round match against Mónica Puig at the 2016 Australian Open.

In Tashkent Open 2016, she won her maiden WTA title.

Re: Kristyna Pliskova

KrisPlis starts the new year in the MD of Shenzhen:

(6)Sevastova vs Pliskova,Kr
Q/LL vs Golubic
Sakkari vs King
Buyukakcay vs (3)Konta

2016 was a breakthrough year for Kris. Will she keep up the trajectory in 2017?

Upsets Chang Kai-chen 6:1 6:2 in 47 minutes. Wohoo!
Johanna Konta next. A big challenge.

Re: Kristyna Pliskova

Kris is actually 2:0 against her, but this is their first meeting on hardcourt.

Both those matches are in 2014. A long time ago, Johanna is totally different player now.

Kris goes down swinging, 46 76(11) 36.

Great effort, saved 5 mps before losing.

Re: Kristyna Pliskova

It was a very good match, Kristyna really fought hard and played very well. (15 aces, 42 winners, 24 UE)
Konta was solid and also served very well.

Re: Kristyna Pliskova

Mental strength on Kristyna has definitely changed, in the past this would have end in straights after Konta break her in first set, she's more confident now and I hope she can keep improving more

Tough day too as she lost in singles and doubles, they lost first set 5-7 after being up 5-2

Re: Kristyna Pliskova

Yes, Kristyna really fought hard.

And I agree with you about her mental strength.
She almost broke Konta in the third game of the third set.
But after that she ran out of gas.

IMHO, She must really improve her forehand which is often harmless and too short.

Re: Kristyna Pliskova

AO draw:

(1)Angelique Kerber v Lesia Tsurenko
Q v Carina Witthoeft
Kristyna Pliskova v Viktorija Golubic
Yaroslava Shvedova v (27)Irina-Camelia Begu


GL to her! Second round points to defend. Can she get to Kerber?

Re: Kristyna Pliskova

Kristyna plays in a few hours, I think she can pass Golubic and actually have a good run to the point to get to Kerber, maybe I'm just blind but, pojd Kris!
PS: Funny how they're playing doubles here too, of course they clash in singles lol
