Karolina Pliskova v Ana Ivanovic Live
The draw has been kind to Ana Ivanovic with the Serbian star set to go up against Czech Karolina Pliskova in the second round of the ongoing US Open. The match will be played at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Thursday, August 28.
While the Serb is currently ranked 9th by the governing body for tennis, Karolina Pliskova is ranked 42nd.
Ana Ivanovic beat American Alison Riske 6-3, 6-0 in the first round in an hour and five minutes. It could not have been a better start at this event for Ana Ivanovic, who has not been at her best in the recent past.
Ana Ivanovic was sent packing at the ATP Stanford classic by Serena Williams and the former crashed out of the Montreal tournament in the second round. However, Ivanovic threw her weight around at Cincinnati where she was beaten in the final by Williams junior. The Serb had got the better of Svetlana Kuznetsova and Maria Sharapova on her way to the final.
Karolina Pliskova has more losses than wins in her past 10 outings on the hard court, six to be precise. Although she won her first round match against Austrian Yvonne Meusburger 6-2, 6-2, Karolina Pliskova is expected to struggle against one of the premier names in women’s tennis when the two clash on Thursday.
