Karolina Pliskova Player Profile
Karolina Pliskova is through to the final in Stanford after beating Varvara Lepchenko.
The Czech right-hander has broken into the world's top 10 for the first time and will be looking to make her mark in New York.
Pliskova, 23, has four WTA titles to her name, three of them coming on hard courts so Flushing Meadow should certainly be to her liking.
She made her mark a year ago when reaching the third round of a Grand Slam for the first time, putting out former world number one Ana Ivanovic along the way before losing out in three sets to Casey Dellacqua.
This year started well as she reached the final of the Apia International in Sydney, going down in two tie-breaking sets to fellow Czech Petra Kvitova which was enough to take her into the top 20 for the first time in her career.
Pliskova won both her singles rubbers as she made her debut for the Czech Republic in the Fed Cup and with confidence high she reached the final of the Dubai Duty Free Championships as 17th seed, losing to top seed Simona Halep.
She was a popular winner of the Prague Open and a consistent campaign was further rewarded with a career-high ranking of seven.
