Karolina Pliskova vs Maria Sakkari Prediction
Two contradicting-styled players will face in one of the quarter-finals at the US Open. Pliskova likes to attack from the baseline and dictate the rallies. While Sakkari relies on defense using her incredible agility and quickness on the court.
However, if Sakkari can move Pliskova around the court as often as possible, she may have a good chance. The reason for that is Pliskova’s lack of quickness on the court.
To summarize, both players will battle hard to reach the semis. Hence we will see a very entertaining game. At Vbet, the total games market seems the best option for this match.
