2018 closing comment: Karolina Pliskova continues to be impressive but unspectacular. Pliskova made it to the WTA Finals for a third consecutive year in 2018, highlighting just how consistently good she has been over the last couple of years. However, it feels like Pliskova has not really improved in recent times and she has a real tendency to struggle against certain opponents (the best defenders / counter-punchers). Pliskova’s serve also does not seem to be the weapon it once was, her ace count was well down in 2018.
