Williams once again appeared in her striking, all-black catsuit.
A break in the third game of the decider proved crucial and Williams claimed victory on a second match point with a sweeping, running forehand.
Pliskova also broke to tie the game at 3-3. She found her gear and what she needed to move through the match.
As Barty said, "I think when push came to shove, the real Serena came out".
