The Prague Open tournament takes place in the Czech Republic, and in this analysis I will detail the match in the second round between Kristyna Pliskova and Petra Martic, and I will conclude with the related bet.
Prague is a city of 1.3 million inhabitants, being the capital of the Czech Republic.
This tournament is small, WTA International, with a prize pool of $ 202,250.
The host is the TK Spart Praha complex, which features slow, slag-covered outdoor land.
The competition table includes Giorgi, Haleo, Martic or Begu.
Kristyna Pliskova is a 28-year-old Czech woman ranked 69th in the WTA.
And Pliskova is a pretty solid sportswoman, although obviously she can’t be compared in performance to her sister.
But Kristyna also had an interesting career so far, reaching the 35th place in the world and playing quality tennis even today.
In 2019 he has the quarterfinals at ITF Indian Wells, the quarterfinals in Guadalajara, the semifinals in Lugano, the quarterfinals in Birmingham, the quarterfinals in Bucharest and the semifinals in Taskhent.
And in 2020 he has the semifinals in Shenzhen.
Last week Pliskova took part in Palermo, but there she played quite modestly and was defeated in the second round by Errani.
Petra Martic is a 29-year-old Croatian, ranked 14th in the WTA.
And Martic is on the best position in his career, she is obviously one of the best sportswomen in the world, not only if we look at the ranking. But Petra has an interesting, constant game, last year for example having round 4 at both Wimbledon and the US Open.
In 2019 he has semifinals in Charleston, title in Istanbul, quarterfinals in Madrid, quarterfinals in Roland Garros, semifinals in Birmingham, finals in Zhengzhou and quarterfinals in Wuhan.
And in 2020 he has the semifinals in Dubai and the semifinals in Palermo, last week.
In Palermo she was quite good, passing Sasnovich or Samsonova but being clearly defeated by Kontaveit.

Tennis Prediction of the Day Kristyna Pliskova vs Petra Martic
Kristyna Pliskova starts with the second chance here, playing quite poorly in the first match, although she met a 15-year-old player. Pliskova has a very good service, but since her return she has not sent many aces, having 3 with Sakkari, 7 with Errani and 1 yesterday with Fruhvirtova. Obviously, the number of aces also depends on the duration of the match, the match with Errani being 2 hours.
Petra Martic has the semifinals last week in Palermo, so theoretically she is the favorite, although in her turn she played badly in the first match, having some physical problems.
Bet Tips: Kristyna Pliskova sends under 6.5 aces
