Karolina Pliskova vs. Anett Kontaveit, Stuttgart SF Prediction

Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, Stuttgart SF #2 Prediction
?? (5) Karolina Pliskova vs. ?? Anett Kontaveit

I’m going to side with Pliskova here. I think Pliskova is looking good this week remembering that she also had a big win on the weekend against Kerber in Fed Cup action. Importantly Pliskova is serving very well this week, this is the most important factor in the Pliskova game and makes her very difficult to beat. Kontaveit has done well to reach this stage but in truth her run is not as good as it may seem given her narrow wins over Mladenovic and Pavlyuchenkova were against opposition that were very vulnerable and low in confidence. Pliskova is the far more consistent and mentally tougher player and far more experienced at this stage of a big event. All signs point to a Pliskova victory.

Prediction: Karolina Pliskova to defeat Anett Kontaveit in 2 sets
