Karolina Pliskova was asked in a press conference at the WTA Finals in Shenzhen if she watched the Wimbledon final between Simona Halep and Serena Williams earlier this year. The Romanian won her second Major title. The Czech player replied: "No, I didn't watch.
My reaction? There was no reaction. I don't know. I like her, so it's not that I would be upset if she wins or lose. It's not my business." On how she reacted to Bianca Andreescu's retirement on Wednesday in the Chinese event during their match, Pliskova concluded: "I didn't really look at her, so I don't know what really happened.
I thought she did ankle at first moment, but then I saw she was taped by the knee. I don't know what really happened. I was finishing my serve, so I couldn't really watch. Anyway, I don't know how bad it is. I was just ready that she was going to call physio because so far I think she has been calling physio in every match.
It was not really a surprise for me. I didn't know it was really that bad. Of course, I feel sorry for her. I don't know if she's going to be ready or if she withdraw completely, I'm not sure. Anyway, I think she had a great season. Of course, everybody is tired a little bit by this point, but I think that's normal."
