Karolina Pliskova, known as one of the Pliskova twins (her sister is Kristyna) from the Czech Republic, is now also known as the winner of the 2013 Malaysian Open. Pliskova defeated Bethanie Mattek-Sands 1-6, 7-5, 6-3 in today's final. The young Czech player has noe broken the top 100; she will be ranked number 84 in the world when the new rankings are published. This is Pliskova's first WTA title.
Shuko Aoyama and Chang Kai-Chen won the doubles title when they upset top seeds Janette Husarova and Zhang Shuai. The scoreline makes me wish I had been there: 6-7(4), 7-6(4), 14-12.
