Victoria Azarenka has been in great form winning two singles titles, one doubles title, and including Madrid, she has made one final and a quarterfinal. Vika was the favourite coming into her match against 18th seed Petra Kvitova today but it was Kvitova who won her first clay title and moved inside the top ten with her 7-6, 6-4 win.
Likewise Kvitova has been in great form blasting to wins in Brisbane and Paris along with some great play at the Australian Open. Unfortunately for Petra, her win was somewhat overshadowed by Novak Djokovic beating the King of Clay Rafael Nadal.
It’s nice to win the tournament and to be in the top 10 at the same time, but it’s just a number. I want to improve my game and we’ll see – I don’t want to be only number 10!” – Petra Kvitova
“Petra had such a great week and totally deserved to win today. She showed some impressive tennis.
I had some opportunities and there are a few things I should have done better, but that’s how tennis works. Now I’m looking forward to Rome and the other tournaments coming up. I’m taking it day by day and we’ll see what happens.” – Victoria Azarenka
