Plíšková managed a tie-break drama. She also averted the match ball and is in the 3rd round of the US Open

Czech tennis player Karolína Plíšková won the duel of the 2nd round of the US Open, when she defeated the American Amanda Anisim 7: 5, 6: 7, 7: 6. In the 3rd round, she complemented compatriots Barbora Krejčíková and Petra Kvitová.

After the winning first set, Plíšková did not allow an opponent of a single breakball in the rest of the match, yet she was shaking for victory on Arthur Ash’s court. In the second set, she also did not get to the possibility of breaking Anisim’s serve and lost 5: 7 in a tie-break.

In the third act, it was not until 5: 5 that the native of Louny developed four breakballs, but did not use any of them, so the shortened game decided again. In it, the world four lost 2: 5, but with four successful points in a row, she developed a match. However, she did not change it, and the possibility of ending the duel, on the other hand, was given to a 20-year-old American, the 75th player in the WTA standings.

However, Plíšková turned her sword away away, created another herself and already used it. After two hours and 23 minutes, she could rejoice in the victory.

“It was a super challenging match from the first moment,” said Plíšková. “She played fast, sometimes I didn’t catch up, but she was patient. We both served great. It was about a few balls and at the end also a bit of luck,” added the Czech tennis player, who will challenge Australian Alaja Tomljanová, the 46th tennis player in the rankings, in the next round.

Barbora Krejčíková and Kateřina Siniaková were eliminated in the doubles in the first round. Tokyo Olympic gold medalists lost to Polish-American pair Magda Linette, Bernarda Pera 3: 6 and 4: 6.

The tournament doubles did not use either of the two breakballs in the match and lost service once in each set. They lost the match in an hour and seven minutes. Krejčíková thus lost the opportunity to return to the top of the doubles in the WTA rankings, for which she needed to play at least the semifinals.

Krejčíková and Siniaková won the grand slam title at Roan Garros this year and reached the finals at the Australian Open. In the first round of the grand slam, they dropped out for the first time since the year before Paris.

The other Czech players did well in the opening round of doubles. Tereza Martincová and Markéta Vondroušová, Marie Bouzková with Lucie Hradecká, Květa Peschkeová with Australian Perezová and Renata Voráčová with Ukraine Kalininová advanced.
