“Wuhan, it’s really one of my favorite cities,” said Kvitova after winning her second title in three years in the city. “It was a great crowd all well, there were some incredible matches for me and I’m really happy that I can stand here as a champion again.”

Kvitova won 17 of the first 18 points in the championship rout.

In the semifinals the Czech upset Simona Halep, and in the third round upended world No. 1 Angie Kerber.

Ranked outside the Top 10, Kvitova will use the title as a springboard entering the China Open this week in Beijing and a run at a spot in the year-ending WTA Finals.

Kvitova improved to 18-6 in career finals while Cibulkova dropped to 6-10, and 2-3 in 2016.

jalep Says:

After that monster battle vs Angie, Petra made sure her matches were quick and clinical with Konta, Simona, and Dominika. Hope Petra has lots left in the tank because I picked her to the final in Beijing.

Pojd! all the way to the Singapore year end final.
