We felt embarrassed for Alize Cornet when she lost yesterdays match (6-0 6-1) to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. From what we witnessed the French girl should have stayed at home, since she didn’t make the slightest effort. To be even more critical, we just don’t understand Cornet’s motive for bothering to turn up at a classic in such poor shape!

Pav’s really impressed us in the first round of Washington when she wiped the floor with Alison Riske. However, in the next round, Coco Vandeweghe literally blew her away. It was that which got us thinking the Russian still lacks something, and that brings us on to the next point. 

Coco is a similar type of player to todays opponent Karolina Pliskova, and by that we mean both are dominant and powerful types. And, that leads us nicely on to the QF of this last year, because it was another power play specialist Monica Keys who sent Pav’s packing.

The other obvious thing that jumps out here is that Karolina won all four matches against Pavlyuchenkova in straight sets. In fact, she never gave up more than 4 games to the 26 year old, and all four wins were on hard court.

Although it’s not been touted very loudly, Karolina is the current world number one. She comes into this tournament on the back of a 37-10 YTD, plus she’s already won Brisbane, Doha and Eastbourne. Then their is the fact that 21 of her season wins have been on hard court, and she’s sure to be fully fired up for this!
