Kvitova races past Linette into fourth round of Wimbledon


For the first time since winning the 2014 Wimbledon title, Petra Kvitova is back to the tournament’s second week and the Czech has done it with a confident 6-3 6-2 victory over Poland’s No.2 Magda Linette.

Opening Saturday’s action on Court No.2, in both sets the sixth-seeded Kvitova wasted break point opportunities in Linette’s first service games, but broke her in her second service games and never looked back, landing 75% of her first serves and winning 81% of the points behind them.

In the entire match the two-time Wimbledon champion Kvitova didn’t face a break point, but her break point conversion was far from impressive, as the Czech won just three out of 12 break points she earned.

Last year, the 29-year-old Kvitova lost in first round of Wimbledon, while from 2010 to 2014 she reached at least the quarterfinals.
