Petra Kvitova Wins the Pan Pacific Open

Czech star Petra Kvitova defeated Angelique Kerber of Germany 6-2, 0-6, 6-3 to secure the Pan Pacific Open title in Japan.

The former Wimbledon champion earned it the hard way. It was a roller-coaster ride of a match that featured several momentum swings before Kvitova sealed the contest with a rapier-like crosscourt forehand winner.

Kvitova dropped six straight games en route to a second set bagel before recovering her poise and going on to win the deciding set.

“Angie came back at me but I tried to stay focused and it’s amazing to win such a big tournament,” stated the champion after the match.

It was Kvitova’s first title success since Dubai in February.
