Pliskova has in her arsenal everything necessary to lead the WTA tour. Indeed, without any doubt the Czech has one of the best innings and even due to the second ball is able to score light points. In recent years, the tennis player has added several times to move around the court, because she stopped standing still and investing in every blow, but forces herself to work with her feet.
Karolina aggravates successfully only from forehand, from backhand he often breaks as carefully as possible and without risk. However, Pliskova lacks stability; she cannot compete in such an attacking manner at a distance.
With the tournament in Doha, Karolina Pliskova has pleasant memories. In 2017, a Czech tennis player took the title in these competitions.
Last week in Dubai, Pliskova confidently started with a win over Kristina Mladenovic (6-1, 6-2). However, in the quarterfinal match against Rybakina, she could not oppose anything to the opponent at the reception (6-7, 3-6). Against Pera, reception problems are also possible. The American serves the first ball very well.
In recent years, Pera has worked hard to improve results on fast coatings. However, as before, almost all important victories and rating points are gained by a tennis player on profile soil. And this situation is very strange, because of Bernarda acts on the court in an aggressive manner, invests in every shot and often runs out to the net.
But if on the tacky ground she has time to manage to make her wide swing before blows, then there is no such luxury on hard, and the American is not able to punch through it bitingly.
For the first time in the career of Bernarda Pera in Doha, she entered the second round. In 2018, the tennis player successfully overcame the qualification, but in the first round of the main net, she lost to Johanna Comte (6-7, 1-6). Last season, Bernard was not able to overcome the qualification.
This year, the American successfully passed two qualifying rounds and very confidently outplayed Caroline Garcia in the main draw (6-3, 6-1). Note that I never gave my services to an opponent, took more than 80% of the points in the first serve.
