Kerber won their only previous meeting. That was in January this year at the Australian Open. She won on a hard court in straight sets.
They have similar results this season.
Pliskova reached the quarter finals in Mallorca last week. She had a
tough 3 set win over Britain’s Naomi Broady in the last round. She faced a lot of pressure on her serve but saved all 10 of the Break points that Broady had.
Kerber reached the final at Wimbledon last year. That will be her focus for the grass season. She has not played on grass for over 12 months. IF she is interested in playing a couple of matches this week to get ready for Wimbledon then she takes this but I think if she goes behind she may not be too interested.
If Kerber breaks early, lay her. I will be backing if she gets broken first
