Tennis Prediction of the Day Alison Riske vs Karolina Pliskova
I bet on a second act with at least 5 aces from the two offensive players. Both Riske and especially Pliskova are high tennis players with the potential to serve many directly winning balls.
In the second set, I think both will find the right rhythm and can ship a large number of aces.
The tradition of recent direct matches indicates a possible balance, with 3 tiebreakers in the last 5 games played.
