devastating stuff on serve, and even the returns were clicking today. recipe for utter disaster for any opponent...
and for the record: her I/O-FH is actually ridiculous when working on the green stuff, great length and lowest bounce while curving away. beautiful sight to behold. :yeah:

Its on every surface but she just doesnt move most of the time. She is waiting for the ball rather than positioning herself.

Pliskova is top 5 Wimbledon contender for sure. Has been playing consistently good.

Watch her peak in Eastbourne only to lose R2 at Wimby yet again :lol:

Great match though for sure :drool: seems like she really got some grass pointers from Conchi to use, as she's really using the surface to make her shots deep and quick. But she's of course still vulnerable to a lot of things on the surface, so I'm tbh just celebrating every match won :lol:

Well done Karolina ! :)
I really liked what I saw in the last three matches. :yeah:
The next match against Kiki will be a big test against a player who defends very well. :)

Pliskova was very good today. Just super solid and didn't really make any mistakes, serve was clicking.

Alexandrova on the other hand played with no tactics at all. She didn't even try to exploit Karo's movement or goad her into rallies. She would just aim for the corners where (a) Pliskova wasn't even going to chase the ball, and (b) Alexandrova would usually miss anyway.

Karolina has been cruising so far, it’s like watching her in practice matches.

She’s even experimented new shots and tactics during games; goes to show how confident she currently is.

She is playing beautiful power tennis but she’s not been pushed. Mertens should have given her a bigger battle but Alexandrova was totally outclassed today. Bertens will be tougher, but Karolina is looking very confident right now. I’d love to see a Karolina-Angie final as the two of them have been outstanding this week.

not bad for someone who supposedly can't play on grass. :banana:

hope is not the same story: plays well at the WTA prior to the slams, only to fail miserably there.

Hope Bot can learn from this and have a good Wimbledon

She has 2 finals and 2 titles on grass :wavey: Its just Wimbledon that she seems to have issue with :tape: :eek: The movement gets exposed if she gets tight and if the serve is off.
