Karolina Pliskova vs Sara Sorribes Tormo: Prediction

That said, Tormo has already beaten big guns in Ash Barty and Ons Jabeur earlier in the year, and that is likely to propel her make life uncomfortable for the Czech player. All said, considering the big match experience, the lanky Pliskova appears poised to sneak in a tough three set win.
