Kvitova reaches 1st final since attack

Posted June 26, 2017

Petra Kvitova completed an emotional Aegon Classic victory to seal her first WTA Tour title since being subjected to a career-threatening knife attack previous year. My view of life has changed a lot and there are more important things about tennis.

She sealed victory by winning 17 of the final 18 points.

The 27-year-old fired down 13 aces and 35 winners as she comprehensively overpowered Barty in the second and final sets with the Australian unable to respond. You know, Paris was a bit weird and odd, and I couldn't play the best over there.

Kvitova seized control of the decider as she broke immediately then pressured the Barty serve again, only for the momentum to swing again as Barty broke back to level at 2-2.

World No.77 Barty, meanwhile, qualified for the biggest final of her career by coming from behind to beat former Wimbledon finalist Muguruza 3-6 6-4 6-4.

This was only the second tournament for Petra after that horrific accident she experienced back in December when the attacker injured her hand, but luckily it seems that everything is alright and that she is going to be among the favorites in the upcoming Wimbledon. "So I'm happy that I was able to win it anyway". Barty has a chance to win her second career title and second of the season. I played four matches already, so it's a good record and good preparation for the final.

But she too double-faulted, repairing some of the damage with a brilliant passing shot which saved match point on Kvitova's serve at 6-4.

"From the first hit on the grass I felt great. But I guess the other one played much better today".

"It has been a hard time and I wasn't sure if I would play again". And she's one of the key figures in women's tennis; she's won two majors (Wimbledon in 2011 and 2014) and an Olympic bronze (2016), and has two other semifinal appearances (the Australian Open and the French Open in 2012), won the Tour Championships in 2011 and the WTA Elite Trophy in 2016.
