Karolina Pliskova has insisted that she “doesn’t care” about Serena Williams despite the pair being in the same side of the draw at Wimbledon.
Seventh seed Pliskova fought back from a set down to avoid an early exit against Romania’s Mihaela Buzarnescu, eventually prevailing 3-6, 7-6(3), 6-1.
And Pliskova – one of only two top ten seeds left in the draw alongside Simona Halep – afterwards insisted that she is not worried about Williams.
“She’s not in my next round, so far I don’t care about her,” Pliskova said.
“I know she’s been winning also couple matches, tough one today. I beat her in US Open, so there is no reason why I should be worried.”
