Czech tennis player Petra Kvitova commented on reaching the final of the tournament in Dubai.
“Very difficult match. She did not give anything at all just like that. The first set turned out to be difficult, and I am glad that I managed to win back in the second. At the end of the first set I didn’t play very well. I am pleased that after losing the first set I was able to concentrate, calm down and played well from the beginning of the second set.
It is hard with her because you go to the court and you do not know what awaits you there: what a blow, how she will receive, will be wrong or beat right through. She likes to play on the line more than other rivals. Of course, you need to prepare for this psychologically and physically – you need to constantly sit very low. Sometimes I went to the net, because otherwise I would have to play forever. I am glad that the game has worked today since the summer, “the Tour press service quotes Petra.
