Maria Sharapova has beaten Karolina Pliskova 6-3 6-4 to level the Fed Cup final between Russia and the holders Czech Republic in Prague.

The Russian world No4 broke twice in the second set as Pliskova squandered three break points.

Earlier, Czech Republic’s world No6 Petra Kvitova came from a set down to beat Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 2-6 6-1 6-1.

Kvitova will take on Sharapova on Sunday before Pliskova faces Pavlyuchenkova.

“I was nervous throughout and made some errors at inappropriate times, but overall I’m really happy,” said Sharapova.

“I didn’t serve my best and that’s something that I’ll definitely need to improve.”
