Czech Karolina Pliskova commented on her entrance to the quarterfinals of the tournament in Dubai, where she will meet Su-Wei Hsieh from Taiwan.
“I had to run. The last few games Riske had done well, she did not give me any points. I had to fight in every draw. She likes my pace of the game, I have her rhythm. Sometimes we made long draws.
In the second game we both added, but I managed to make a number of excellent strikes. In the first set, we made a lot of mistakes. Perhaps because of the strong wind we could not correctly calculate the time. However, we kept our feeds until the tiebreak. But on it, my opponent did not play the best way.
The match against Su-Wei Hsieh will be completely different. She is completely unpredictable and feels great ball. On the other hand, she has not the strongest pitch, I can take advantage of this.
Over the past months and years, Su-Wei Hsieh is constantly progressing, she manages to beat the top tennis players. I doubt that someone wants to meet her on the court. However, I have already managed to beat her, so I will be positively tuned, “the WTA press service quotes Pliskova as saying.
