(FILA Global) - Congratulations to FILA sponsored athlete Karolina Pliskova, for reaching the women's singles finals at the 2016 US Open. Pliskova joined the FILA family earlier this year, and this marked her first career trip to a Grand Slam final. Pliskova's impressive run in New York City included a semifinal round win over top-seeded Serena Williams.
Pliskova’s successful Grand Slam journey was preceded by a victory at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati last month, where she captured the women’s singles title, her first WTA premier title.
Throughout the US Open, Pliskova was dressed in the FILA tennis Heritage collection on-court, as well as the company's performance tennis shoe, the Cage Delirium. Visit www.FILA.com
