Petra Kvitova will play against the American youngster Coco Vandeweghe in the second round of the BNP Paribas Open which is going on at Indian Wells. The match will take place tomorrow.
Kvitova had finished the last season in fine style, but, she couldn’t bring that momentum into this new season and has been struggling so far.
The 24 years Czech has lost to fairly inexperienced players in a couple of matches this year and has thus dropped in the world rankings.
This tournament is a good opportunity for her to get back in form and her fans would be hoping that she manages to do so.
Kvitova has been one of the most unpredictable players in the professional arena in the last few years. She can be breathtaking on one day and in the very next match, she can put up one of her worst performances ever.
As far as her opponent Vandeweghe is concerned, she is not much known in the world at the moment as she has never been in top 50 in the world rankings. She generally plays in the lower level tournaments.
Vandeweghe’s form hasn’t been too encouraging either this season. In fact, she hasn’t won even a match in 2014 and that must be in the back of her mind. She would be desperate to win and would not let any stone unturned for that.
Vandeweghe might not be as skilled as Kvitova at this stage of her career, but, because of the poor form of the Czech player, she can pull off an upset in tomorrow’s match.
There has been one match played between these two players till date and it’s Kvitova who has won that. She would not mind at all enhancing that lead and making it 2-nil.

Petra Kvitova has seen some good times and bad times in her short career so far. Her fitness has always been a big concern for her, but, she has shown that she knows how to fight her way through it. Even in the last season, she struggled at times with her fitness, but, she bounced back and came up with some fantastic performances in the second half of the season.
Kvitova is pretty optimistic about the upcoming season. She is hoping that she hits top form pretty early in the season and makes her way to the top of the official rankings published by WTA.
Kvitova has won just one Grand Slam in her career so far. She had done that at All England Club a couple of years back. She is currently ranked 6th in the world.
Yesterday, in one of her interviews, when she was asked how different she was in 2011 when she had achieved glory in the Wimbledon Championships, the Czech player said, “In the last couple of years, a lot of things have happened in my career and I have learnt from them. Now, I know that even if the things are not going your way, you can get better of your opponent if you are mentally tough. So, I am not the same player which I was back in 2011.”
“I still have a lot of things to learn. As a player, it’s important for you to keep learning and keep improving your game.”
Kvitova’s first tournament in the upcoming season will be the Apia International Tennis tournament. It will be played on the hard courts of Sydney, Australia and playing in that tournament will help the Czech player get ready for the Australian Open.
