MATCH PREVIEW

Barty Back on Track

Ashleigh Barty takes on sixth seeded Karolina Pliskova in the quarter finals of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart. The world number one has bounced back to form after losing to Paula Badosa last week in the Charleston clay tournament.

That was a quarter final defeat but she'd also had problems in the previous round. Barty had to go to three sets to get past Shelby Rogers. The loss was a setback for the Australian after her impressive victory in the Miami Open. That strengthened her place at the top of the world rankings. In terms of points earned this year, she is second behind Naomi Osaka. The Japanese player isn't in Stuttgart this week and Barty will overtake her if winning this title.

Barty is the reigning French Open champion, her only Grand Slam final. The Australian didn't defend her title last year and will want as many matches as possible on clay before next month's Grand Slam event.

This week has seen her beat Laura Siegemund in straight sets. The first was won without losing a game but it was a much tougher task to win the second set. Barty eventually won it 7-5 to set up this last eight match against Karolina Pliskova. The winner takes on either Elina Svitolina or Petra Kvitova in the semi-final. 

The world number one has won four of her previous six matches against Pliskova. They first met on grass in Nottingham nine years ago when Barty was only 16. Their first four matches were shared but Barty has won the last two though, most notably when winning in Miami two years ago. Their previous six meetings have seen six tie-breaks played. That could be an interesting bet to make for this match.

Pliskova Not at her Best

Karolina Pliskova is ranked ninth in the world but four years ago was world number one.  This time last year the Czech was third in the rankings and began the year in sixth. It's not been a great year for Pliskova and this is only her second quarter final of the year. The other was in Qatar last month. Pliskova beat Ons Jabeur before losing to Jessica Pegula in straight sets, winning just four games.

The 29-year-old last played in Miami. That didn't go too well with another loss to Pegula in the last 16. She fared even worse this time, winning just two games. Thankfully for Pliskova, the American isn't in Stuttgart this week.

Pliskova struggled in the first round of this event, her first clay tournament of the year. She had to go to three sets to get past lucky loser Tamara Korpatch. That took her into a second round match against Jelena Ostapenka and again she had to go to three sets to progress. This time she lost the first set on a tie-break before recovering to reach the last eight.

The Czech has won three clay court titles, including one in Stuttgart three years ago. 2019 saw her win the Italian Open beating Johanna Konta. Only once has she got past the third round in the French Open, a 2017 semi-final. Pliskova can still beat the best on her day but doesn't look to be in that form at present, go for Barty to win this match in straight sets.
