Berlin, Germany : Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova displayed her grass court prowess by defeating Donna Vekic of Croatia 6-2, 7-6 to claim the German Open Title on Sunday. The victory not only confirmed her exceptional form on grass but also served as a statement just over a week before the prestigious Grand Slam tournament in London.
The 33-year-old Czech left-hander showcased her remarkable skills on the grass surface, dominating the match against Vekic. It was a familiar matchup for Kvitova, who had previously defeated Vekic on her way to victory at the Miami Open earlier this year. With this win, Kvitova secured her 31st career title and added another chapter to her impressive tennis journey.
Kvitova’s comfort and confidence on grass were evident throughout the tournament, as she captured her sixth title on this surface. This remarkable achievement places her at the top among active Women’s Tennis Association players, highlighting her undeniable mastery on grass courts. Her performance at the German Open served as a stern warning to her rivals as Wimbledon approaches.
This season has been particularly significant for Kvitova, as it marks the first time since 2019 that she has clinched multiple titles in a single season. Her consistent success on grass continued with an impressive record of winning 12 out of 13 matches on this surface, dating back to her title run in Eastbourne last year.
