Kvitova looking to recapture Wimbledon title

Petra Kvitova has said that her game is in great shape heading into the French Open. The 22-year-old, shot to fame after capturing  her first ever Grand Slam title at Wimbledon.  The Czech tennis star believes that she is a threat on any surface after racking up six titles last year.  In truth Kvitova has had a disappointing year so far but revealed that she is in confident mood as the second Major of the year approaches: “I think from last year that I can play on all surfaces and I won in Madrid on the clay, Wimbledon and I won on hard court as well, so I think that I have a game to play very well on different surfaces,”

The world number four believes that Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova will pose the biggest threat in Paris.  Kvitova lost to Sharapova in the semi-final of the Australian Open, but beat current women’s number  one; Azarenka in last year’s Wimbledon semi-final.  Securing a victory at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris, would really establish Kvitova’s form coming into the highly anticipated Wimbledon tournament. With the Female competition so open this year with all big players firing, The French open should be another cracker, as the heavyweights of women’s tennis look to outdo each other once again.

Kvitova needs to perform well in Paris and put her recent poor form behind her and gain some confidence going into her summer schedule. Should she fail to make waves and recapture her consistency of last year, her Wimbledon defence may not be very effective if she remains horribly out of form.
