‘Super solid’ Pliskova usurps top seed Sabalenka to make Montreal final

Loading...

An
intriguing
semi-final
pitted
two
of
the
favourites
against
one
another
in
Montreal
and
it
was
Pliskova,
the
fourth
seed,
who
came
out
on
top
6-3
6-4.

The
Wimbledon
finalist
broke
early
in
the
first
and
then
clinched
the
set
on
Sabalenka’s
serve,
too,
although
she
was
made
to
work
a
little
harder
in
the
second.

Pliskova
fell
behind
in
the
seventh
game,
but
she
responded
by
winning
three
straight
games
to
wrap
up
victory.

“It’s
an
amazing
feeling
to
be
in
another
final
this
year,”
Pliskova
said.

“I
think
I
was
super
solid
today.
I
just
did
everything
what
I
was
supposed
to
do
to
win
this
match,
played
smart.

“My
serve
was
pretty
good,
I
have
to
say.”

Indeed,
the
Czech
landed
71
per
cent
of
her
first
serves
in

with
10
aces
to
two
double
faults

helping
her
to
win
69
per
cent
of
her
service
points.

World
number
71
Giorgi
progressed
to
the
decider
with
a
three-set
win
over
Jessica
Pegula
in
two
hours
and
11
minutes.

The
6-3
3-6
6-1
win
means
the
Italian
qualified
for
her
first
career
WTA
1000
final.

Giorgi
had
toppled
seventh
seed
Petra
Kvitova,
ninth
seed
Elise
Mertens
and
15th
seed
Cori
Gauff
on
her
route
to
the
decider.
