Karolina Pliskova vs Naomi Osaka, Indian Wells QF Prediction

BNP Paribas Open, ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒด Indian Wells QF Preview
๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฟ (5) Karolina Pliskova vs ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต Naomi Osaka

Iโ€™m going to give the edge to Naomi Osaka here. I think Osaka has been the more impressive player throughout the event, Osaka has come up against and beaten some very tough opponents such as Sharapova and Radwanska whilst Pliskova has benefited from a favourable draw. I think the slower surface favours Osaka in this match-up. Osaka can match the power of Pliskova, importantly she can take care of her own serve if Pliskova is serving well. I think Osaka is the more dynamic payer, Osaka moves better and has more explosive power than Pliskova. On a slow surface where there will be more long rallies, Osaka should have the slight edge because she is the greater athlete and has more to her game.

Prediction: Naomi Osaka to defeat Karolina Pliskova in 3 sets
