Kvitova wins Aegon Classic final for 1st title since attack

Kvitova wins Aegon Classic final for 1st title since attack”

"I played great, I felt good from the start", said Federer.

Kvitova is looking in impressive shape after her absence from the sport following a hand injury caused by a knife attack during an attempted robbery at her home in December.

The tournament's other Grand Slam victor, former French Open champion Garbine Muguruza, plays unseeded Australian Ashleigh Barty in the second semifinal.

Zverev will also be a player to watch during Wimbledon. "It was an incredible week and tournament".

"You an inspirtation and a champion", Barty said to Kvitova during the trophy ceremony.

Barty was off to a ideal start, dropping just 1 point in the first 4 service games, and she scored a break in the 3rd game to open up a 5-3 lead.

"It's so unbelievable to have Petra back on the court".

Safarova came through a marathon battle with Australian Daria Gavrilova, triumphing 6-7 (4) 6-3 7-6 (5).

Kvitova has made her first final in only her second tournament since returning after a six-month absence. But Barty recovered to finally serve out the set 6-4. Playing with more authority and dictating more in the rallies, the lefty Czech took control.

Federer raced out of the blocks and broke serve twice to reel off the first four games of the match. Barty managed to earn a few games, but Kvitova soon closed the door by taking the set 6-3.

"Both of us play really fast on this surface, the grass suits her game as well, so it was about a few points here in three, one or two key breaks in the match", Kvitova said. But leading 2-1, Kvitova experienced another dip in form. That allowed Barty to level the set at 2-all. Having saved match points in her opening-round win over Dominika Cibulkova, Safarova did the same again against Gavrilova.

With the result, Federer won, for the first time in his career, one tournament nine times.

In the trophy ceremony, Kvitova thanked her team for keeping her smiling and focused during her time away from tennis.
