Tennis, WTA – Toronto 2022 tournament: Pliskova beats Anisimova

Between two players of the caliber of Karolina Pliskova and Amanda Anisimova, we could expect a shock. It didn’t happen. The Czech crushed the American in the second round of the WTA 1000 in Toronto: 6-1, 6-1 in 53 minutes.

Slamming seven aces during the match, the number 14 seed never lost her serve and only conceded two break points to 22nd in the WTA rankings, when she was already leading 6-1, 4- 0.

Since the beginning of the year, this is only the third time that Pliskova has passed two rounds in the same tournament. Injured in the arm, she could not start her season until March, in Indian Wells.

Pliskova will face Sakkari

When she entered lice, the former world number 1 had already distinguished herself with a convincing victory over her compatriot Barbora Krejcikova (6-3, 6-4).

In the round of 16, Karolina Pliskova now has an appointment with Maria Sakkari, seeded number 3. She is led two victories to one in her face to face with the Greek.
