Camila Giorgi vs Karolina Pliskova: Preview
Pliskova competed at the Canadian Open as the fourth seed at the start of the US Open Series. After overcoming Donna Vekic and Amanda Anisimova, she faced Sara Sorribes Tormo, whom she defeated in straight sets in the quarter-finals. Pliskova played top seed Aryna Sabalenka in the semifinal, whom she had beaten in the Wimbledon semifinal just two months earlier; this time, she won in straight sets after breaking early in the match and only lost the advantage once in the second set, before breaking again to secure the victory. Pliskova has reached her sixth WTA 1000 final and her first final at this tournament with her victory. In the finals, she will face unseeded Camila Giorgi in the Rogers Cup 2021 finals.
Camila reached her first WTA 1000 and biggest final of her career at the Canada Masters in Montreal, having never advanced past the fourth round of any tournament at this level before. She beat No. 9 seed Elise Mertens in the first round, No. 7 seed Petra Kvitova in the round of 16, No. 15 seed Coco Gauff in the quarterfinals, and Jessica Pegula in the semifinals, all of whom were ranked in the Top 25. She returned to the top 50 in the WTA singles rankings after this strong run.

Camila Giorgi vs Karolina Pliskova: Prediction
Both the players are aggressive baseliners who are always looking for the next big thing. Camila Giorgi’s groundstrokes, on the other hand, are heavier than Karolina Pliskova’s, and she also has stronger footwork. Pliskova’s serve is remarkable, and it may cause Camila some problems. We feel the match will be intriguing since we have more experience, but Pliskova will win in the end.
Our prediciton: Pliskova to win in three sets
