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.
