If she could serve, the match would've been a lot tougher. It has to be said though that Kvitova's serve was monstrous! Maria was having a hard time returning her slice, which stayed extremely low and opened the court for Petra so well.
Agree! But I believe she will read kvitova's serves better if they are to meet on grass again
Even if she was struggling returning those lefty slice serves that day, she returned some of the balls with great depth and angle
