Zhengzhou QF: [1] Plíšková def. [6] Kenin 6-4 4-6 6-1

Kenin hasn't won a match against Karo in all the four times they played each other. I hope Karo can claim her new pigeon officially soon

Tbf though, I think a lot of their matches have been a close deal and I don't doubt Kenin will nab a win one day. This time though, she only won the second set because Karo basically brainfarted halfway through. The third one was pretty much a walk in the park for KaPlis bar like two games. Very nice showing after playing for the second time today (not like the Hercog match was so long though).
PLP and Perun like this.

Anett Kontaveit ; Karo Plíšková ; Markéta Vondroušová ; Naomi Osaka ; Daria Kasatkina ; Kateřina Siniaková

Kenin didn't play badly and seems to be improving. Pliskova felt very on/off to me. The match basically depending on whether or not she got her first serve in. At one point she was something like 90% points won on first serve, and 30% points won in second serve. However overall a much better serving day compared to her previous match where she was a DFing mess. She had 18 aces so her first serve clearly was on fire!

Very efficient and business like performance by Karo from the bits I saw. Stats make it seem like she served incredibly well and that usually means she is more imposing of the ground as well. Good to see her in the SF.

Sofia Solid start to her Asian swing. Hopefully she can continue this way in China.

Rest in Peace Bally!

I only saw the first set but I’m sure it was never really in doubt. Kenin is so stubborn on 1st serve return. She’s going to keep losing to big servers until she’s more flexible in her approach. I think she probably is the worst 1st serve returner on tour. Her contact point is actually inside the baseline... against Pliskova of all players. It’s a shame because her ground game is otherwise really quite good.

Pliskova ran here more than she ran in the entire US Open.

Ka Plis surprisingly won several points on defense, but her serve remains her power.

not really sure. karo ran 2234 meters in her R4 loss to konta with 2210 meters and was outrunned by only wang and barty with 2400 meters out of all the 16 players in that round. next in that list is görges with 1863 meters in her 3 set match against vekic.

karo served well today, but even so, you never are sure she will win until the final point.

as usual sonja gave 100% as always, but got overpowered in the end.
still, the last 2 matches she has played against pliskova have gone to 3 sets, so a win against her may not be far off.

Lol. Go watch the match and tell me that again. How many balls did Pliskova go by when she can actually chase it which she did in this match.

I have noticed this and commented on it too. I love Sofia, but so disrespectful. LOL

Also Karo won 2 matches in a day?! So it can be done TF.
