She has had a mixed tournament so far but was efficient against Brady, hitting 23 winners to the American's six, and dominating with her first serve.Brady won only 22 points, compared to Pliskova's 55, and struggled for rhythm as she played on Arthur Ashe Stadium for the first time."I think she was a little bit nervous, it was her first time on Ashe, and that's normal," Pliskova said."I wanted to take advantage from that. Hopefully I'll be on here for the next match as well."
