That's the type of level that can win you Wimbledon. Just outstanding play from Karolina.

Angie shouldn't be too upset. She had a very fine week. Ran into a player that was too good on the day.

Bot was good but doubt Kerber would surrender that easily at Wimbledon.

Hsieh, Martic & Sevastova in her section for Wimbledon, we'll see how she fairs vs the flair players, normally struggles.

Absolutely dominant performance from Karo. The first 10 games were all her. Angie tried to front some resistance, but losing the first serve of the second set, which she could have avoided, proved to be her downfall as Karo was basically unbreakable for most of the match. Fantastic tennis from Karo throughout. If she can maintain this form for a fortnight; she could definitely win Wimbledon.

if there was a deserved title this year look no further than this one. ridiculous level throughout the whole tourney, and ruthless performance in the final.
pojd, karo!

One of the best performances by a female player so far this season.

Hit the ball incredibly well, defended incredibly well and moved incredibly well.

Fair play to Angie for staying in touching distance in that second set.

If Pliskova plays like that for the next two weeks then she wins Wimbledon; however when it comes to Wimbledon you can never rely on Pliskova.

That was a fantastic performance by Pliskova, conclusion to a perfect week. I'd say she was better in every department today. Angie wasn't great but just like yesterday I would definitely say it was more about Pliskova not letting her play better. To me it seemed like Pliskova's level declined a bit (still high, but in the first set she was getting to every single ball) in the end but her serve carried her through and prevented the momentum from shifting. Deserved title.

Angie is so nice at the net after all of her losses lately. :eek: Did she receive some handshake training by the WTA after that Andreescu incident or was it an eye-opener for her? :lol:

I thought this was easy money, as I said in the WWW thread. Pliskova takes this opponent seriously.

What a final and what a week from Karo :hearts: she really brought out that form she bagelled Sloane in Singapore with (before that choke :tears:) in full force here. I really, really hope she can continue like this in Wimbledon, because it's hard to imagine many players beating her when she plays like that. But for now, I'm just happy with what she showed here and I guess we'll see next week :lol:

Also, I'm just laughing at Karo defending her titles... a year too late :lol:

Pliskova is on the easy side of the Wimbledon draw. She should cruise to the final.

I love the sound of the ball on Pliskova's racquet. Such a clean "th-wack". Hardly misses too. Bet she would have been a sharp shooter or good poker player...or both in the olden days.

One the most dominant performances in an entire tournament for a while. The last time i remember that was this dominant was serena at the olympics.

Pliskova can have off days though and it really comes out of nowhere, thats always the worry for her.
