Karolina Pliskova vs. Kiki Bertens, Wimbledon R4 Prediction

?? Wimbledon, R4 Prediction
?? (7) Karolina Pliskova vs. ?? (20) Kiki Bertens

On grass, I favour Pliskova in this match-up. Pliskova thrashed Bertens on clay in Stuttgart earlier this year, recently she described that win as one of her ‘easiest’ victories of 2018. Importantly, Pliskova has served very well over her last couple of matches, if she is serving well on this surface she has a real chance to go all the way. Conversely, Bertens may have had a great win over Venus Williams in the previous round but grass is still her least preferred surface, a surface that doesn’t really suit her game. Pliskova does everything a bit better on grass, I expect Pliskova to be too solid here.

Prediction: Karolina Pliskova to defeat Kiki Bertens in 2 sets
