Twin Peaks! Birmingham R2: Kr Pliskova def Ka Pliskova 62 36 76(7)

DF on her first MP but got it done in the end. Plays Strycova next.

No doubt some will suggest that this result was agreed in their hotel room beforehand

Ka.Plis serving at the end was horrendous, helps big sis get back into top 100

Double fault by Karolina at 5-5 and 7-7 in the tiebreak plus missing a sitter at 4-4...

I love how bots agreed to go as far as deciding set tie-break, so it doesn't look too fishy. However, Kaja made it too obvious with 2 DFs from 5-5. Just in case...

These DF were NID, really. Kris played her best match in forever but Karo certainly helped a lot.

Karo had such a hard time against sis not only was Kris playing great, but also, those DFs near the end... really gave away how nervous she was about this match. Thankfully she had nothing to defend in Birmingham and this will hopefully be a big confidence boost for Kris. I just wish she would play like this more often and not just against her twin

Karolina is nice to her sister....but her sister didn't even hug her back.
So ungrateful.

The OC interviewer accent tripped me... he said "you share rooms, meals together" - I first heard "you share rooms, males together"

OMG... Lefty Bot fired 24 aces!!!?? Was Righty Bot not moving for any of these? Lefty Bot now owns the H2H 5-4. Hahahahah.

If Karolina wanted to tank, why come back from 1-4 down in the third?
