BNP Paribas Open, 🇺🇸🌴 Indian Wells R4 Preview
🇨🇿 (5) Karolina Pliskova vs. 🇺🇸 (wc) Amanda Anisimova
Surely this is where Anisimova’s run will come to an end. Anisimova has had a fantastic couple of weeks, winning 8 matches in Indian Wells as she reached the semi-finals of the 125K event last week. Pliskova should be too strong for the 16-year-old here. Anisimova has a very aggressive game but so does Pliskova and the Czech will not allow Anisimova to dictate as she pleases. Pliskova has a great record here having the semi-finals in the previous two years and will not be fazed by Anisimova’s attacking game. Anisimova had her left thigh heavily tapped in her match against Kvitova and I suspect her body will give in here after so much tennis of late whilst Pliskova is fresh and ready to go.
