Pliskova had fallen from the top 10 in the world at Wimbledon and historically has always struggled in the tournament. Having only hoped to reach week two, the Czech admitted she was shocked reaching the final.
“I think I still can’t half-believe it. Coming into this tournament, the dream was to do the second week because I hadn’t been in the second week for a while. I never thought of maybe going to the final.
“Of course you have to win a few matches to feel [more confident] and play the best tennis. It’s not that I would play horribly. Sometimes you just miss a little bit and you’re not doing anything wrong. I think sometimes just hanging on is super important, which I did. I really haven’t changed anything.

Barty wore a scalloped-hem dress in honor of her idol Goolagong, who won her first Wimbledon title fifty years ago. Against Pliskova this afternoon, Barty hopes to pay homage to that story and write his own.
“Giving me the chance to create a story that almost feels like a tribute to her is really exciting,” Barty said. “It’s a really special birthday for Evonne. I just floated and took advantage of the opportunities I had here this week. I couldn’t be prouder to be able to wear an outfit inspired by her. I couldn’t be more thrilled to have this opportunity to win on Saturday.
