Two-time Wimbledon champion and world number five dominated her Fed Cup partner in Singapore
Petra Kvitova left fellow Czech left-hander Lucie Safarova staring at possible elimination from the WTA Finals when she beat her 7-5, 7-5 on Wednesday.
Two-time Wimbledon champion and world number five Kvitova, 25, has now dominated her friend and Fed Cup partner 8-0 on hardcourts, grass and clay.
“I’m really glad that I was able to play and win the kind of match after my loss in the first match here,” said Kvitova, who fell to Germany’s Angelique Kerber in straight sets on Monday.
