Pliskova peaks at Wimbledon without losing any set

Karolina Pliskova found her most stable and powerful version at Wimbledon this year, taking her to where she had never gone in the tournament: the semi-finals. The 29-year-old Czech 13th in the world beat the Swiss on Tuesday Viktorija Golubic by a double 6-2 in 1:21 and will face on Thursday Aryna Sabalenka or Ons Jabeur, who play in the center.

Pliskova has reached the penultimate round without dropping a set and has only given up her serve three times in her five matches. He submitted to his last rival with 28 winning shots, eight of them from direct service, and 19 unforced errors, and notable percentages, also of points at the net (17/21).

Karolina hasn’t come to London as the insecure tennis player who has failed over and over at the Grand Slams since she was a semi-finalist in Australia two years ago. At that point he also arrived at Roland Garros 2017 and even higher at the US Open in 2016, when he was a finalist. Now he has a new opportunity to reach the last fight for the trophy of a major.
