Beatriz Haddad Maia

The Czech Republic tennis virtuoso has staged a strong watershed after a sloppy start to the season. The erstwhile world ace has managed to carry forward the rigour which she racked up during her runners-up finish at Wimbledon in the North American hardcourt. She has managed to reach the final in Montreal, the semis in Cincinnati and the quarters in the US Open. Pliskova started her Indian Wells campaign with a resonating victory against World number 106, Magladena Frech as she blew away her counterpart in straight sets.

Beatriz, on the contrary, racked up her best rating of 58 way back in 2017. Her form has declined since then and she is ailing in the 115th spot of the rankings currently. Her major area of expertise has been the ITF circuit. She has managed a win-loss record of 63-18 with five titles disseminated across the ITF $60,000 and $25,000. She belted out a fine showdown in the second round against Egypt’s Mayar Sherif as she walked away with the bragging rights, thanks to an emphatic margin of 6-3, 6-0.

Pliskova leads the race in the contest of this duo confronting each other as she smashed Beatriz in the only encounter, they had way back in the 2018 Australian Open by 6-1, 6-1. The current equation stands 1-0 in Pliskova’s favour.

Going by the drastically contrasting rankings of these two superstars, it is needless to say that Karolina Pliskova will be emerging as the victor. There were glimpses of rust for Pliskova as she committed six double-faults and was broken twice. Given the fact that Beatriz will come into this encounter as a dark horse, every single opportunity that will be presented to her, she will make a meal of it.

Beatriz, on the contrary, relies on tiring her opponents out and will be playing in a far deeper stretch than Pliskova usually does. Given the Czech’s affinity towards errors, especially after intermittent bursts of mediocrity against Frech, the Brazilian will like to exploit that void. However, with the glaring numbers favouring Pliskova, it is highly unlikely that there is a chance of an upset.

Prediction: Pliskova to win in straight sets.
