She fought back well from a break down in the second set. Christina beat Leela Fernandez and Patricia Tig and has recently found a bit of form after a long while so I wouldn't underestimate her, it's certainly winnable for Vera but also not a super easy one I think.
Wow that was a convincing win against Christina. Petra has been up and down and this is not her best surface (she won today 16 60 62) but I'm still not really expecting Vera to beat her- still, she can, especially if Petra loses her rhythm somewhat.
Third set was a rollercoaster, Vera was down 02, won 5 games in a row and had MP for 6 in a row. Kvitová came back 54 15-40, but Vera won 4 points in a row to seal the victory. First win on a Top 10 player this year, back in top 100! Well done Vera!
Amazing! Had match point on her serve after having match point the game before and won on Kvitova's serve
Next is Pliskova, so Vera has to be ready. Now she can get some points and be in main draws every major if she can focus and hold serve
