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.
