Guadalajara (Mexico) – Tennis player Karolína Plíšková could not handle a three-set battle with Hailey Baptiste at the WTA 1000 elite category tournament in Guadalajara and was eliminated in the second round in Mexico. The thirty-one-year-old former world number one did not use a match point in the match, and she lost to an opponent ten years younger from the second hundred in the world ranking 6:7, 7:5, 6:7 after almost three hours. She also lost the second mutual match with the American, at the end of July she also lost the first round duel in Washington in three sets.
Plíšková, seeded 16th today, did not manage the important ends of the sets and confirmed her black record this year in tie-breaks, in which she succeeded only once. In the first set, she failed to serve at 5:4, and Baptiste won it in a tie-break 7:5. In the second, the native of Loun gave hope. She wasted a 3-0 lead when her opponent turned five games in a row to 5-3. But even she was unable to complete the set, and the Czech player finally leveled the match after another turn.
However, the same problems were repeated at the end of the match. At 5:3, Plíšková missed a match point on her serve, letting Baptiste catch up and the tie-break was the deciding factor again, again with a winning end for the American.
