At a tournament in Brisbane in one of the quarter finals on January 10, Plishkova and Risk will play. Czech has a considerable advantage in face-to-face meetings, but most matches were in the fight. What will be the prediction for the match?
In the predictions for the matches of Alison Riske in Brisbane, we have repeatedly noted that the American is not the first season to show herself perfectly at the January tournaments. Brisbane this year was no exception for Alison.
Two victories without given sets already won Riske. In the first round, as an underdog of bookmakers, she confidently passed Mukhov (6-4, 6-2). Following, Strykova just as convincingly outplayed (6-3, 6-5). She obviously brought herself to the start of the season and will try to impose a struggle on Carolina, as she did in last year’s two matches. Then she lost both times, but at the same time in Dubai, the defeat was in two tie-breaks (6-7, 6-7), and in Toronto she took the set (4-6, 7-6, 2-6).
Karolina Pliskova is the current champion of the tournament in Brisbane. On the way to defending the title, the Czech tennis player had only one match, as she started right away from the second round.
Karolina had to play at the start against the local tennis player Isla Tomlyanovich. It was not immediately possible to catch my game, but Karolina had already played out to the third set and brought the matter to victory (6-4, 6-7, 1-6).
Statistics and personal meetings
- In eight personal meetings, seven victories in the account of Pliskova.
- In the current tournament, Riske in two matches has never given sets to rivals.
Alison Riske vs Karolina Pliskova Prediction
In the first two matches in Brisbane, Riske showed excellent form and is able to withstand Karolina. Alison shows good movement, is ready physically well, nailed to the local court and confidently works on her pitch. Last year, both times Riske imposed a fight on her rival. Now, at the start of the season, Karolina is still far from optimally looking to arrange the rout of Alison. We offer a forecast for a positive head start on the underdog.
Our prediction is the victory of Karolina Riske
