WTA Tour

Petra Kvitova stormed to her 28th career title and second at the Qatar Open win with a 6-2, 6-1 rout of Garbine Muguruza in Doha.

Kvitova struck 11 winners to 18 unforced errors for a victory that was claimed in just 66 minutes, making it five wins in succession for the Czech Republic star over Muguruza.

“It’s been a great run in Doha,” said Kvitova said afterward. “It’s been a great whole week.

“I just feel like home a little bit. I love the court, I love everything, and the people are really friendly as well.”

Mugazuza accepted she was second best as she congratulated her opponent.

” I think Petra played very well from the baseline, and it was hard to try to make her move, or try to do much,” said the Spaniard.

“It was very windy, as well. I mean, it really wasn’t my day, I guess.”

This was a repeat of the 2018 final in Doha, which was won in three sets by Kvitova, but the Czech prevailed much more comfortably this time.

Kvitova has been in strong form all week and saved the best for last to lift a trophy for the first time since Stuttgart in April 2018.
