Pliskova set for Sakkari rematch in Rome

AFP, ROME

Former world number one Karolina Pliskova set up a rematch with Greece's Maria Sakkari at the Italian Open on Friday, a year after the Czech player smashed the umpire's chair in a temper tantrum after losing to the Greek.

Pliskova and Sakkari last met in the second round at the Foro Italico when the Czech, furious at a line call, smashed a hole in the umpire's chair after losing in three sets.

Pliskova, the fourth seed, beat Belarusian Victoria Azarenka 6-7 (5/7), 6-2, 6-2 on Friday and plays 39th-ranked Sakkari, who ousted France's Kristina Mladenovic 5-7, 6-3, 6-0, for a place in the final.

“With Sakkari I didn't play since last year, so I think everybody is going to be waiting for this match -- even me,” said the 27-year-old Pliskova, who was fined by the WTA for her outburst.

“It was I think (at a) couple (of) tournaments already close to happening, the rematch after this. But she always lost before.”

“I think she was scared to face me,” she joked.

Since then, Sakkari has won her first WTA title on clay in Morocco last month.

“It was not a nice memory I have,” said the player from Athens. “But since then, I think we have both forgot about it.
