“My match against Kerber was on high-level,” says Petra Kvitova
Petra Kvitova defeated Angelique Kerber in two sets at the 2021 Madrid Open and after the match she spoke about her performance.
Petra Kvitova was a favorite ahead of the match of two Grand Slam champions. The Czech won 6-4, 7-5 after 83 minutes and reached third round where she’ll play against Veronika Kudermetova.
"I don't think that I really played like bad games when she broke my serve. It was kind of important to stay calm, which I did very well I think today, through whole match. I just took her straight away back," Kvitova said after the match.
"I served very well, especially in the important points. I think like overall the intensity and the tennis itself was on the high level I would say. I think we really played very well. She even served very well, as well. It was tough to attack her serve.
"I think I was pretty pleased that I stayed calm during the whole match. I was just there, doesn't matter what the score [was]. That's what I'm pleased with."
