Petra Kvitova and Karolina Muchova are the last two ladies standing at the Czech Tennis President’s Cup final, a national three-day exhibition tournament organized while the COVID-19 pandemic is preventing international tennis from happening.

In Wednesday’s semifinals, two-time Wimbledon champion Kvitova had her ups and downs against Katerina Siniakova, but eventually advanced in straight sets. The world No.12 Kvitova went a double break up for a 3-0 lead in the first set and after allowing Siniakova to level to 5-5, the higher-ranked Czech eventually took the first set 7-5. The second set also started with a double break lead by Kvitova and Siniakova again recovered, going from 0-3 to 3-3. Eventually, favorite Kvitova celebrated a 7-5 6-4 victory.

Kvitova’s opponent in the final of the Czech Tennis President’s Cup will be Karolina Muchova, who beat Barbora Strycova 6-1 4-6 10-6 in the semis earlier in the day. Initially, the encounter between Muchova and Strycova was a one-sided contest, but it developed into a balanced match, which was eventually decided in a competitive tiebreak.

Kvitova and Muchova, the last two players left in the eight-Czech-women draw, will play their final tomorrow. You can follow their match live on VistaSportTV YouTube channel.
