Pliskova pro­duced her best year of ten­nis in 2016, end­ing the year with a ca­reer-high rank­ing of No. 5 and adding two of her seven ca­reer WTA ti­tles in Not­ting­ham and Cincin­nati. She fell in the fi­nals of the US Open, mark­ing her best all­time fin­ish in a Grand Slam. Pliskova also as­sisted the Czech Repub­lic to the 2016 Fed Cup crown. She has al­ready started off 2017 with a ti­tle at the Bris­bane In­ter­na­tional. Pliskova’s game is on the rise, and she should be a player to watch at this year’s Mi­ami Open. Pliskova first played on Key Bis­cayne in 2013 as a qual­i­fier and has since had her best re­sult in 2015 when she reached the quar­ter­fi­nals.
