Re: Rome R3: Kvitova def. Cirstea 62 57 62
Petra has two wins over Kerber already this year, one on indoor hard in Ostrava for Fed Cup, one on indoor red clay at Stuttgart. So I like her chances, especially if she gets her shit together like she did in the last set.
Still, her serve was MIA today, and she can't beat Angie without serving well. Both these previous encounters were quite close: one break each set at Stuttgart (6-4, 6-4?), and a three-setter in Fed Cup.
"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005
P. Kvitova def. S. Williams 6-2, 6-3
