"Doesn't give you many free points": Pliskova opens up on daunting nature of facing World No.1 Swiatek

Czech Republic’s tennis star Karolina Pliskova believes that the toughest part of facing the world number one Iga Swiatek is that she never gives away any free points.

The two are set to clash in the second round of the Omnium Banque Nationale Canadian Open on Wednesday.

Talking about it before the encounter, the 31-year-old stated that the current top-ranked player is extremely hard to play against because of committing very few errors.

"She can really make you feel, like, not lost, but I mean, she doesn't give you many free points,” she said. "You have to find that balance between playing risky, aggressive, but not too risky, not too much.

“Because then [Swiatek's] not going to give you many points. Of course, that's going to be the most difficult part, to find what is too much and what is not enough."

Pliskova defeated China’s Zhu Lin in the first round of the competition with a score of 6-3, 6-7, 6-2 to book her place in the next round.

On the other hand, Swiatek will be playing her first match in the competition as she qualified straight to the second round.
