Pliskova has won all 4 of their previous matches. They played twice on hard courts this year and she won in 2 sets each time.
Pliskova had an MTO in her epic match with Safarova. She was treated for a lower back problem. She doesn’t deal well with injury, illness or tiredness at all well usually and may not be competitive in this one. The price reflect this so no value on Ivanovic at the start. Pliskova also has her thigh heavily strapped.
Back Ivanovic if she is broken early. I expect Pliskova to be low on energy after playing in the Fed Cup and her movement will be even worse than it normally is.
