Pliskova wins junior Wimbledon championship

When Sachie Ishizu went up 4-2 in the third set in today's junior girls Wimbledon championship, her chances to win looked good. She was broken back, however, then Krystina Pliskova broke her again and served successfully for the championship 6-3, 4-6, 6-4. Pliskova was seeded 9th at the tournament, and Ishizu was seeded 10th.

Kriystina's twin, Karolina, won the junior girls Australian Open championship. Krystina, who plays left-handed, won the Wimbledon warmup tournament in Roehampton, and is now on an eleven-match winning streak on grass.
