Karolina Pliskova wiki, bio, age, tennis, salary, age, twitter, dating

A Czech tennis player who plays right-handed and two handed backhand, Karolina Pliskova was born in Louny, Czechoslovakia on 21st March 1992. She is 6.1 feet in height and 24 years of age. Her salary as per a website is over $700 thousand, and no information is available about whom she is dating currently. Let's look at her bio.

Pliskova and her sister started training once a week under a coach in their home town of Louny, at the tender age of 4. She turned pro in 2009, and began her WTA career in 2012 playing her first senior Grand Slam tournament at the French Open, but lost in the first round to Marion Bartoli in the straight sets. In 2013, after exiting the Brisbane International and Sydney Open in the first round, she won her first WTA title at the Malaysian Open defeating the American player Bethanie Mattek-Sands in three sets.

 The same year, she with her twin sister Kristyna won the WTA doubles title at the General Ladies Linz to become the first set of twins in WTA history to win a double title together on tour. 2014 was a good year for Pliskova, having reached the semifinals and finals in a couple of major tournaments, she broke into the top 50 rankings and later kept performing so well that she ended up climbing up to world rank 24 after defeating Varvara Lepchenko in Hong Kong to get her second career title.

Despite losing several finals, Pliskova ended number 11th in the rankings in 2015 and also became the 13th most popular player of the year according to WTA's website, but not before she won her first Fed Cup title as a doubles team. She began 2016 by representing Czech Republic in the Hopman Cup partnering with Jiri Vesely, and has recorded singles victory against Jarmila Wolfe and Victoria Duval. She has won over $2 million in prize money so far, with 4 WTA and 10 ITF titles. Her highest career rankings have been number 7 (as of 17th August 2015) and she currently stands at number 11 in the singles category and 39 in the doubles. Karolina is currently coached by Jiri Vanek.

Pliskova's updates on her personal and professional life can be gathered from her social media pages like instagram (karolinapliskova) along with 37.7 thousand other fans, and twitter (@KaPliskova) where she has over 19 thousand followers. Apart from tennis, what Pliskova likes to do in leisure are fishing, listening to music especially pop and Czech music, watching movies (Rocky and Public Enemies are her favorite), reading books by Paulo Coelho – she's read The Alchemist a few times, etc. Her favorite food is pasta.

The funniest moment according to her is when people confuse her and her sister when they wear the same clothes during doubles, despite her being righty and her sister playing lefty. An interview posted in the wimbledon.com says that if she had a time machine, she would go back to her childhood at the age of 5, because at that age, one doesn't have to worry about many things unlike now, with tennis in her life.
