Czech Petra Kvitova commented on her victory in the second round of the tournament in Miami .
“It seems that Sakkari and I met for the first time. Before that, we didn’t even train together, so I didn’t know what to expect from her. Constantly, if I play with an unfamiliar opponent, the match turns out to be unusual. I need several games to understand the basic techniques and competitor weaknesses. It seems that today I did it.
I played poorly in the match with Venus in Indian Wells, so I had to wait for the next exit to the court for a long time. I trained hard, but you never know how everything goes in an official match. It helped me that I started this meeting powerfully, “the WTA press service quotes Kvitova.
