Agnieszka Radwańska vs Karolina Pliskova
|Date & Time||Monday August 13, 2018, 12:00 PM (EDT)|
The Line: -- Over/Under:
Former world number 1, Karolina Pliskova will be playing at the Cincinnati Masters. The Czech superstar will be in action against Polish player, Agnieszka Radwańska. Agnieszka Radwańska was once the world number 2 so that shows the quality that she possesses. Both players will be determined to do well in this tournament since it is a major WTA tournament which means we should get some good performances.
Agnieszka Radwańska last played at Wimbledon where she was eliminated in the second round of the tournament. The Polish superstar looked tired in that tournament and it is interesting to see if she is fresher after not playing for a few weeks. This is not an easy opening round match since she is playing one of the best players in the world but the Polish superstar will not be fazed by this.
On the other side of the court, Karolina Pliskova will hope to win her opening round game with some ease. The Czech superstar had a poor run in the Rogers Cup in Montreal where she was eliminated in the second round of the tournament. This will be the last chance that Karolina Pliskova has to get some wins under her belt before the US Open and I am sure she will look to take full use of that opportunity. The Czech superstar will need to ensure that she is not taking this match too easily since her opponent was once one of the best players in the world.
All in all, I am going to pick Karolina Pliskova to win. The Czech superstar is the better player at this moment in time and I think she will be good enough to win. That hard court has always been a favorite for Karolina Pliskova and I am sure she will demonstrate that in this fixture.
