Third seed Karolina Pliskova defeated Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 6-4 on Saturday at the Eastbourne International to underline her status as a Wimbledon title contender.

The Czech secured her third title of the season after breaking Wozniacki once in both sets, leaving the Dane still searching for a first trophy since her win in Hong Kong last October.

Former world number one Novak Djokovic faces French second seed Gael Monfils later for the men’s title on the English south coast.
