11-09-2016

Karolína Plíšková failed in her bid to win her first Grand Slam tournament. She lost 3:6, 6:4, 4:6 to Germany’s Angelique Kerber in the final of the US Open. Plíšková started nervously and lost the first set but fought back to draw the match in the second. Plíšková said after the match that she was proud of her achievement, pointing out that noone would have expected her to get to the final two weeks ago. Trainer, Jiří Vaněk said that a few balls alone made the difference for the final result. He said that Kerber was like a ‘wall.’ Kerber, already the winner of the Australian Open, is now the new world number one.
