Pliskova looked very strong throughout the tournament but failed to win the final where she had a poor match and was defeated comfortably. Throughout her career, Karolina Pliskova has impressed in regular tournaments but has always failed when it comes to Grand Slam events. At the age of 29, Pliskova will be hoping to realize her potential and produce some big results in major tournaments. Considering her form in Rome, Pliskova should enter this tournament with confidence on her side.
On the other side of the coin, Donna Vekic enters this match having last played at the Australian Open which took place in February. It has been a big break for Donna Vekic and she will be hoping to return to the court without any issues. This is a tough match to mark her return as she is playing the number 9 seed in Karolina Pliskova. Defeating Pliskova often requires Pliskova to play poorly but it will be important for Donna Vekic to maintain some consistency as the constant pressure is vital when playing against the Czech superstar.
