Kvitova safely through in Paris
PARIS, May 31 – Czech fourth seed Petra Kvitova strolled into the French Open third round with a comprehensive 6-1 6-3 win over Pole Urszula Radwanska today.
Kvitova, who had only dropped three games in her opening round, was never threatened by the world number 79, hitting 30 winners in a one-sided match on Court Suzanne Lenglen.
The Wimbledon champion ended Radwanska’s misery after 70 minutes on her second match point when the Pole sent a backhand long.
Kvitova, heading towards a possible quarter-final clash with defending champion Li Na of China, will next face Frenchwoman Claire Feuerstein or Russian Nina Bratchikova. – Reuters
