Nominated for the most improved player award after two titles and five Finals last year, Pliskova has also enjoyed a fine start to 2015 .Pliskova could go on to a last-16 tie with Ana Ivanovic, the former world No. 1 from Serbia, and if she were to progress further then a meeting with Venus Williams, the defending champion, is a possibility.The 16th-seeded Peng followed her 7-5, 6-1 first-round win over Elena Vesnina by adroitly avoiding questions about following the only Chinese player to have won a Grand Slam singles title.After going a break down in the first set against Vesnina, who not long ago was on the verge of the top 20 herself, Peng broke back immediately.
