Pliskova leads their previous matches 5-1. Their most recent was last month in Fed Cup on an indoor hard court. Pliskova won in straight sets. She has won their last 5 matches.
Muguruza came through in 3 sets over Svitolina in the last round. It looks like Svitolina
finally ran out of energy after an excellent start to the year. Muguruza’s second serve has looked a little vulnerable this week and I would expect Pliskova to put it under a great deal of pressure.
Pliskova needed 3 sets against Puig in her first match but Begu was beaten in 2 tight sets. She only had to play 1 set in the last round as Bacsinszky retired at 1-5.
This is Pliskova’s to win or lose. She seems to own Muguruza. Wait for 1.80 before backing.
