Zhengzhou F: [1]Pliskova def. [7]Martic 6-3 6-2

Decent win, and 4th title this year. Don't go hybernating on us again, just like after Eastbourne, please.

Barty after FO I think?

Edit: Nope, she was number 2 seed, my bad.

the queen of premiers

Great tournament from Karo I really wish she could've played like this at USO, but I think some internal factors might have played a role there (nerves, mentality etc.)

But either way, it's great seeing her play like this once again. You can just see how well she did today when she beat Martić, an opponent against whom she always has problems. I've already said this in live commentary, but she should really request mandatory rain breaks when she's playing, because she really tends to regroup and shoot her opponents out of the court right after

Title number four just this year alone!

Love that trophy, btw! Although it looks pretty heavy

Petra Still a great tournament from her, and I'm sure she'll get a premier trophy soon

In her post-match interview she said that this was her "first official tournament" with Olga as her coach. Does that mean she's split with Conchita? I thought she might have just been having a week off.

I haven't heard anything on that score. A czech commentator was even going on during the match about how Conchita got a week or two off to see her family etc. So I think Karo probably meant that this is the first time Olga has officially coached her during a tournament. But I suppose we'll see.

Pliskova joins her, Caroline Garcia (Nottingham), Alison Van Uytvanck (Budapest), and Aryna Sabalenka (Shenzhen) as the only top seeds to win their tournaments in 2019.

Quite a few #2 seeds have won this year though.

Garcia was champion in Nottingham as the #1 seed as well.

Can't believe I forgot her! I guess because Barty was originally the #1 seed but pulled out. Thanks for the correction.
