Karolina Pliskova is fully focused to play her best tennis in the upcoming quarterfinal against Ajla Tomljanovic in Brisbane but before that, she had to deal with a tricky situation on court: a snake.
The Czech is the last “casualty” of the organization that asked some top players to pose with the local wildlife. A few days ago it was Naomi Osaka that had to deal with a giant snake while now it was the time of Karolina that didn’t seem to be at ease… again. Pliskova looked extremely relieved when giving back the reptile.
