With the best serve on tour, Pliskova has the weapons to trouble anyone on her day. Know as the #AceQueen Pliskova served more aces than any other player in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Pliskova almost has the complete game, a huge serve, powerful, solid groundstrokes from each side and a good game at the net. However, Pliskova’s movement and stamina are not great and she can a bit one-dimensional at times. As a result Pliskova has a tendency to struggle against the top defensive players, something that holds her back from winning the biggest titles, this is especially true on a slower surface. Pliskova has a great attitude, cool and a cucumber and very consistent, which is rare for such an aggressive player on the WTA tour.
