Petra Kvitova, currently number three in the world, beat Anett Kontavelt for the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix final to become the first player to win a succession of multiple titles for the WTA Tour of 2019. The two time Grand Slam victor managed to hold off eighth seeded Kontavelt to claimed a 6-3 7-6 (7-2) win that took just over an hour and a half.
She saved two break points for the opening game, and went on to break in game six of the opening set, and then served it out. It was an even contest for both players during the second set, with four breaks of serve for the first five games, but it eventually came down to a tie break, of which the Czech player dominated the court.
Her new title, which is her second following her victory at the Sydney International at the beginning of the year, means that it’s now 18 and out on her WTA Tour as the run of the various title winners has come to an end of the season. Talking about her latest win, Kvitova said that there are only three of them left now, referring to Dominic Thiem, Roger Federer, and herself as the only two time champions for the year.
She added that she had played Anett a few tie breaks in past games and almost lost all of them, which she said wasn’t nice going into her latest one, but she remained patient and managed to push through.
