Re: Pliskova Twins Cheering Thread

18 May 2010 - Kurume, Japan - Nick Fishpool

Twin sisters face off for title



The singles final of the $50,000 ITF Pro Circuit tournament held in Kurume, Japan saw twin sisters Karolina and Kristyna Pliskova face each other across the net for the third time in their Pro Circuit careers but their first in a final.



This match, their second meeting in 2010 following a semifinal clash in Gifu, Japan in April, saw the 18-year olds from the Czech Republic, who are more accustomed to playing together as a team, share three sets. Karolina, who had won both their previous encounters on the ITF Pro Circuit in straight sets, took the opening set 75 and appeared to be on her way to recording another victory over her sister. Kristyna though was not about to let this happen and struck back in emphatic fashion, dropping just two games in the next two sets to win her first singles title 57 62 60. This victory was her first over her sister since 2006 when she triumphed 64 61 in an ITF Junior Circuit tournament in Malta.



The sisters, as qualifiers, also contested the doubles final but were unable to claim a first title together on the ITF Pro Circuit as they lost to China's Sheng-Nan Sun & Yi-Fan Xu, the No. 2 seeds, in straight sets.



The WTA World Rankings released on May 17th 2010 showed that both sisters had climbed to new career high positions in both singles and doubles. Karolina was up to 170 (singles) and 421 (doubles) with Kristyna now at 237 (singles) and 396 (doubles).




That's the article from ITF website I'm so happy for Kristyna hopefully she can get her ranking up at least as high as her sister (where it belongs).

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

Karo and Kris seeded [2] and [8], bottoms of the respective draws. Both have good chances going deep!

Hopefully junior Roehampton and Wimbledon will be better for the twins...
and I hope they could both play US Open qualifying.
