Karolina Pliskova v Ashleigh Barty Head to Head

The head to head tally between the two players is presently tied at two wins each. They last met in the US Open last year, where Pliskova won in straight sets. The preceding year in Wuhan, it was Barty who stunned Pliskova in the quarterfinal.

Barty – Can She Pull off the Biggest Win of her Career?

Ash Barty has had a pretty brilliant season so far. Earlier this month, she reached her career-best singles ranking as the World No. 11, following a quarterfinal stint in the Australian Open and a fourth-round feat in the Indian Wells.

In fact, she started the season on a strong note with a runner-up feat in the Sydney International, where she defeated Simona Halep and Kiki Bertens.

Barty, who won the Nottingham Open and WTA Elite Trophy last year, is a player of great calibre. Over the years, she has defeated many top 10 players and is slowly gaining momentum on the tour.

Miami is where she had her first major breakthrough, having reached the most important final of her career so far. She started as the number 12 seed and moved past the likes of Dayana Yastremska and Samantha Stosur in the early rounds in straight sets.

In the fourth round, she met Bertens and dispatched the Dutch in three sets. After that, she knocked out Petra Kvitova and Anett Kontaveit to make it to the final two.

Pliskova’s First Final Since Brisbane

Presently on the WTA Tour, Karolina Pliskova is one of the few players with great consistency and momentum. In every single tournament she has played in so far, the Czech has made it to the quarterfinal and beyond.

She started the season with a winning run in Brisbane and followed it with a semifinal feat in Melbourne and a quarterfinal run in WTA Dubai. The reigning Pan Pacific Open champion also reached the quarterfinal in Indian Wells, where she lost to Belinda Bencic.

As for her run in Miami, it has been fairly easy, starting with early wins over Petra Martic, Alize Cornet and Yulia Putintseva. In the quarterfinal, she met Marketa Vondrousova and after defeating her, she faced Simona Halep in the semifinal.

Despite a massive disadvantage in the head to head tally, Pliskova, against all odds, defeated the Romanian and denied her the No. 1 ranking.

Pliskova v Barty Predictions & Tips

This is a fixture that can very well go either way. While Pliskova has been in a brilliant form this season, Barty has been truly sensational in Miami. The Aussie has the experience needed to defeat Pliskova but it all depends on things pan out on that day. Expect this one to be an entertaining fixture.
