Great Britain only has one chance of winning, as Andy Murray, World No. 1 (most-likely not for too much longer) lost to American Sam Querrey yesterday in a thrilling match. "One more win will be wonderful. It won't be a given but I'm going to give it my all".
Pliskova has won three titles this year, in Brisbane, Doha and the Wimbledon warm-up event at Eastbourne.
Johanna Konta became the first British female player in 40 years to advance to Wimbledon Semis when she defeated top rated Simona Halep in the quarter finals which held yesterday. "No point was easy. I just stuck to my true self".
Saturday's victor will also move into the Top 5 of the WTA rankings on Monday.

TMZ also reported Tidal sent a letter to West threatening a lawsuit if he attempts to join another streaming music service. Kanye West has had his run with exclusive streaming deals, and he's had enough.
"I definitely feel like there's no reason why I would not be able to be in a position to win a title like this one day", Konta said.
Ostapenko was only a few weeks old when Williams, the oldest semi-finalist since Martina Navratilova in 1994, made her Wimbledon debut 20 years ago. Now ranked 10th, she still has a long road in order to get there, but she looks fit and ready to hoist some hardware. The 23-year-old Muguruza broke twice to open the second set, claiming the first four games before dismissing Rybarikova in a mere 64 minutes.
"If somebody told me before the tournament I'd to be in semi-final, I for sure would take it", she said. "I've learned a lot".
Williams ended up with eight aces and only 13 winners. "But it's like, no, this time you have to do it for yourself, so here we are".
"In terms of how comfortable I felt out there and how focused I was on what I wanted to try and achieve out there, I felt really comfortable", Konta said. I hope I keep it up for the last match and I hope it goes my way.
"Obviously it's very short after the match, and I'm a little bit disappointed". Maybe it's even better.
