Pliskova hasn’t had a great season, so it’s not surprising that she’s trying new things to get back to peak performance.
Ten days ago, Pliskova and Bajin called it quits.
“Sometimes the best of times have to come to an end. For all that he has done for me and the team, I want to express my gratitude to @BigSascha. I had a fantastic time and picked up a ton of new knowledge! Primarily, how to think and act in a more optimistic and confident manner.
Congratulations on being one of the best coaches around!” Following Wimbledon, Pliskova took to Instagram. Pliskova did not achieve any success while working with Bajin. Her time with Bajin was not without its highlights, as she reached the finals of three major tournaments, the 2021 Wimbledon being the most notable.
Pliskova hired Bajin in the hopes that he would help her to a Grand Slam victory. When Pliskova reached the final of Wimbledon last year, she came up short to Ashleigh Barty in three sets.
Since Pliskova broke her hand in the offseason, she has had a difficult season. As a result of being sidelined at the beginning of the 2022 season, Pliskova did not begin her campaign until the middle of March at Indian Wells. The offseason setback undoubtedly had an adverse effect on Pliskova’s performance, and she has struggled mightily since her return.
It remains to be seen if Pliskova, who is currently 9-11 in 2022, can rediscover her game and form during the upcoming North American hard court swing.
