Petra Kvitova wrapped up her best week in Stuttgart taking the title over Anett Kontaveit 6-3, 7-6(2). And she also becomes the first multi-winner on the year on the WTA after picking up her second title.

“I’m glad of course for breaking this streak.”

Kvitova withstood early break points then broke mid-way through the first to seize control. Kontaveit would recover in the second and it was the Estonian with two sets points to push a decider.

“I played Anett a few tiebreaks in the past, and I almost lost all of them, which wasn’t really nice going to the tiebreak,” said Kvitova. “My last service game actually I played amazing. I really had the great serves over there, and I was just continuing in the tiebreak from the beginning. So, I think I was pretty patient and I was just there and trying not to really be that hectic, as probably like I was before.”

Kvitova wins her 27th career title and 5th on the clay. Kontaveit falls to 1-4 in WTA finals.
