Re: Pliskova Twins Cheering Thread

Czech usually are very calm: Kvitova (before the podj era), Safarova, Benesova. Barbie is the most glaring exception. Cookie also. Just forget what I said

Lucie ''Lucka'' Safarova, Petra ''KvittyGoat'' Kvitova, Sabine ''BoomBoom Bine'' Lisicki

Re: Pliskova Twins Cheering Thread

How does Kris go from playing three sets agains Peng, to getting bageled by a girl with no ranking? Sometimes it's hard to root for them when they could care less.

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Re: Pliskova Twins Cheering Thread

Karo got a wc into the Bahamas qualfying, where she is the #1 seed. First round is a bye, and will be meeting Diana Ospina in the second round. These two have never played each other.

Diana Ospina? I have to admitt I have never heard of her so I guess she´s nowhere close to Karo in the rankings and Karo should win and make the main draw...

Re: Pliskova Twins Cheering Thread

Karo beat D.Ospina 6-1, 7-6. Quite a close score against an unknown player. With similar game to Petra, tt seems that the US/Bahamas slow hardcourts are not suited for their game very well at this moment. I'm not expecting much of them here.

Lucie Šafářová, Petra Kvitová, Lucie Hradecká

Re: Pliskova Twins Cheering Thread

Karo faces #5 Sharon Fichman for a place in the main draw. These two have played once, 2009 Fort Walton Beach, which Karo won with the WTA-loving score of 76(7) 46 75.

Kris's first-round opponent is slumping Alla Kudryavtseva.

Prediction: if Karo makes the main draw, Kris beats Alla.

Re: Pliskova Twins Cheering Thread

Karo defeated Sharon, 75 64, to qualify. She now faces Alison Riske in the first round.

Kris moved to the second round, when Alla retired 4-1 down. Now faces #1 seed Pauline Parmentier. I think this match is winnable.
