Re: Pliskova Twins Cheering Thread

Very sensible decision from Karolina. She looked a bit fatigued (mentally more than physically) in Beijing this week, and she'll want to be as fresh as possible for her first YEC.

Better scheduling, hope she doesn't go back to playing until she's zombie-Plis.

Re: Pliskova Twins Cheering Thread

Kris won against an Austrian wildcard in three sets. It is a good sign she's winning three setters again. Before she changed her coach she was probably going into that third set knowing she had a bad record. Now onto the 2r against Ana Bogdan and she's 1-0 against her (6-2 6-2) in Glasgow 2015.

Re: Pliskova Twins Cheering Thread

Update:

I've noticed a career-long pattern—when Kris is able to win the first match, she goes on a roll.

Defeated Ana Bogdan, 64 57 60

Defeated Tamara Korpatsch, 61 61, to qualify.

On an 18-match win streak now

Faces Oceane Dodin, who also qualified, in the first round. Maybe not the ideal matchup, 2-1 in the h2h, 1-all on hard.

Kris needs this win to keep at her current rankings, she has 50K final points that will drop next week.

Faces qualifier Oceane Dodin first round of the main draw Should be an interesting match. Kris is 1-2 against her.

Gluck to Kris

Re: Pliskova Twins Cheering Thread

I think it's time to have a Kristyna cheering thread and a Karolina cheering thread. They both deserve to have their own thread.

I understand they draw people's attention at first place because they are identical sisters and probably the prettiest identical twins in the world. But with their ranking-rise and all these different tournaments, opponents, results, news, this thread become inefficient when you only want to follow one.

Apparently, Karolina has more fans because of her tennis, and we can feel Kristyna is also improving especially lately. But this thread feels like waiting for Kris to chase up Karolina so that they can play doubles together and make a pair of dreamy twins team. Of course, it will be great and as close sisters, they probably want it too.

But come on, they are different individuals. I don't get why this thread hasn't been separated when there is a huge gap between their rankings since last year. They even couldn't play doubles together.

Any different opinions here? Let's discuss. As I notice, there are several posters have the same feelings as me. Also, some posters enjoy talking two pliskies together in their posts. I guess it's because we have different opinions on individualism and the novelty of identical twins.
As they apparently put singles ahead of doubles and they are not Bryan brothers who only play doubles. I think we should stop putting them together.

We can keep the already exsisting threads here and add two subforums under this Pliskova forum respectively dedicated to Kristyna and Karolina. I don't think this is hard but I'm not allowed to open new threads...

Re: Pliskova Twins Cheering Thread

^ Well, start a new thread that's KrisPlis only

Regarding a separate forum, you have to ask here: Player forum request thread

Usually, the mods only create new ones twice a year.
