The Line: -- Over/Under:
Czech tennis superstar Karolina Pliskova has made it into the fourth round at Wimbledon. At this stage of the tournament, Karolina Pliskova will play against Karolína Muchova.
Karolína Muchova had a good match in the previous round where she defeated the number 20 seed, Anett Kontaveit, in straight sets. During the victory, Muchova served exceptionally well. Karolína Muchova hit 5 aces which aided her to win 69% of her service points. Karolína Muchova won 91% of her service games and 2 return games during the victory.
Karolína Muchova finished second at the Prague Open in May but the Czech player has not been playing well since that tournament. Between the Prague Open and Wimbledon, Karolína Muchova had only won 1 match. This is expected to be a very tough match for Muchova as she is playing against the number 3 seed.
Looking at Karolina Pliskova, she won very comfortably in her previous match which she won in 3 sets. Pliskova defeated Hsieh Su-wei in the previous round. During the win, Karolina Pliskova won 86% of her service games and 2 return games. Pliskova has been playing very well in this tournament and she is one of the favorites to win the title.
Pliskova entered this tournament in supreme form as she won the Eastbourne International last week. Pliskova has been in outstanding form in 2019 and she will be very tough to stop in this tournament.
Karolina Pliskova and Karolína Muchova have played each other once in the past. The match was earlier in the season at the Australian Open where Karolina Pliskova won in straight sets.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Karolina Pliskova to win this match. Karolína Muchova has played well in this tournament but she lacks the power to compete with Pliskova. Pliskova has demonstrated her power and skills in this tournament and she looks in supreme form. Considering her recent form, I see Karolina Pliskova being too strong for Karolína Muchova in this match.
