This could be a stiff little test for Karolina Pliskova, who is one of the frontrunners for the Australian Open 2020 title. The Czech player will just have to be on her toes as she faces a solid underdog Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova for a place in the fourth round at Melbourne Park.

Steady and controlled from Pliskova so far

World number two Karolina Pliskova has sailed through her first two matches at the Australian Open 2020. She knocked over Kristina Mladenovic in the first round and then sent Laura Seigemund packing without dropping a set in either match. Coming into action at Melbourne Park, Pliskova was carrying some form.

She picked up the title at the Brisbane International just before the start of the Australian Open. In that she beat Naomi Osaka and Madison Keys on her way to lifting the title. So she has come through some early stern tests already this year. In facing Pavlyuchenkova, Pliskova is just going to have to watch herself against a player who likes taking on the big guns.

Pliskova was not particularly fluent in her second round match, but still, there’s a lot better to come. She has a good recent record at the Australian Open as well. She made the quarter finals in 2017 and 2018 and then was stopped in the semi finals last year. Pliskova is generally a player who comes out strong at the start of the season. Is this going to be her year to get that elusive Slam title?


Pavlyuchenkova is a dangerous Russian floater in the draw

It is unlikely that Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is going to give Pliskova an easy time of things. Pavlyuchenkova is ranked 30th in the world at the moment and already this season has gotten under the skin of some of the top talents in the game. At the year’s Brisbane International she took the first set against Petra Kvitova, before being able to hold out.

Then in Adelaide, she also took the first set off world number one Ashleigh Barty in their round of sixteen tie. Again Pavlyuchenkova couldn’t hold form and get the win. So while she is unlikely to outlast the world number two Pliskova in this contest, she could make her Czech opponent sweat a bit early in the match.
