Pliskova vs Linette Prediction & Pick

Linette continues to take down one ranked opponent after another in an unexpected display of great tennis. She has dropped only one set throughout the first four rounds, but taking on Pliskova is going to be her hardest test to date. This is an opponent she has beaten just twice in nine career showdowns.

Pliskova is playing her best tennis in years, too. This is her second straight quarterfinals appearance in a Grand Slam tournament and she can see her first title on the horizon. The 30-year-old has yet to have even one close call in this Australian Open thanks to her iconic serve and will to win at any cost.

Give me Pliskova to advance over Linette here, but this one is far from an easy choice.

Pliskova vs Linette Best Bet

Pliskova has proven throughout this tournament that she is capable of getting off to an amazing start. In fact, she has earned a first-set win in all four of her matches with scores of 6-1, 6-0, 6-4 and 6-0. None of those sets were close as her serve confused her foes and left them searching for an answer.

On the other side, Linette has already dropped one first set in this tournament and her three first-set wins came by scores of 7-5, 6-3 and 7-6. She was only able to assert herself as the clear favorite in one of those sets. Fading Linette while also trusting Pliskova lines up as a safe option at the start.

Bet: Karolina Pliskova to Win First Set (-156)
