Good result for the game, as is any win by any of the Pliskovas. The WTA could really use them, but according to all reports they aren't very good at tennis. Maybe at least one of them is getting better?

Their movement is poor...but unlike so many players today, they know how to serve.

Yes, she plays Minella in round 1 (who she lost to in the finals of a $25K in July. But Minella has lost her two first rounds since then).

They're not terrible perse, but it'd take a lot of work for either of them to be top tier

Are there any indications if one sister is better than the other at this point?

I don't think they'd be good for the game just because they're so tall and striking (or pervy hohoho twins hohoho angle). I saw some of your vidz + plus other assorted HL reels and there's a lot to like there - they serve from up a tree, and their groundstrokes are gorgeous, at near Kvitova levels of silky smoothness, almost mesmerising to watch. But they're just so lackadaisical. :o Completely lacking in intensity. Anything that requires them to take more than two steps, they just lean into the ball and hack at it.

How many Pliskova sisters are there?

Just two. They're fraternal twins; one is left-handed (Kristyna, currently the slightly lower-ranked of the two) and the other, Karolina, is right-handed. Karolina won the Australian Open Girls' Singles title last year and Kristyna clinched Wimbledon (also qualifying through to the main draw this year where she lost to Bartoli).

Karolina was the first one to get noticed - made it to the QF of Prague WTA MM in 2008 IIRC.

Karolina is given as slightly taller than Kristyna now (just checked the most recent photos of both, confirmed it) - I thought it was the other way around.

Yeah, Kris looked Amazonian at Wimbledon. Still not sure how I feel about them; I slightly prefer Karolina ATM but Kristyna's leftieness is earning her some points. :drool:

As for the result I was soooo backing Beatriz. :sobbing: Find your form again girl!!!

Good for you Krystina. Now convince your sister to win her match too. :o

Kristyna, FTW. Simply because she's a lefty as I am. Thanks for the info.
