Player Profile: Karolina Pliskova

As the US Open approaches it only makes sense to shine a spotlight on the WTA No.1 Seed, Karolina Pliskova. Although she has not won any Grand Slams she did make it to the 2016 US Open Final.  So, can she make it to the finals again this year, maybe even win? Lets look into some more player facts about her.

Player Facts:

    • 2017: Brisbane, Doha, Eastbourne
    • 2016: Nottingham, Cincinnati
    • 2015: Prague
    • 2014: Seoul, Linz

Overall Pliskova seems to have a lot of potential. Her loss at the 2016 US Open against Kerber was close at 3-6,6-4, 4-6. Arguably as No. 1 seed and a YTD 79% win percentage Pliskova may earn her first Grand Slam within the next few weeks.
