Karolina Pliskova was asked what her off-season will be like following her loss to Ashleigh Barty at the Shenzhen's WTA Finals. The Czech player replied: "The season is over, that's true. Well, I have of course some holidays, maybe about two, three weeks.
I have to see. I want to see when I feel like playing tennis. I also want to enjoy the off-season. I probably go deny to Tenerife like I was last year. It was great off-season. I might do some things which worked, then we will see", admitted the former world No.
1 who got married to her husband earlier this year in Monte Carlo. Analyzing her loss to Barty, Pliskova said: "Well, for sure there was one situation which I would maybe change if I can. That's the second set, 1-All, 40-Love, three breakpoints in a row.
I think I could definitely do something better or just different. She played well, of course. Overall I think she played just great on the breakpoints, important points. Always first serves. She was just tough today. I think there was not many things I could do better.
Of course, the energy with the time we played went a little bit lower and lower. Her game is just too difficult playing without energy. You always have to go down to the slice. She makes you run a lot. Then the serve, you need to be super quick to react.
I think I was missing a little bit later in the match. But overall I think she didn't do anything wrong. She was playing great today. I'm also kind of happy with my performance. Of course, it's sad that I'm out of the tournament. I think I did well."
