Petra Kvitova was asked if she would like to see team events being introduced on the WTA Tour. The Czech said: "Of course I see those new team competitions on the ATP. I would like to stay with the Fed Cups. I think we do have enough tournaments to play.
I always love to play team competitions. I mean, I'm really enjoying those weeks being in the Fed Cup team. It's different compared to other tournaments. Yeah, I saw the Laver Cup. It's amazing" said Kvitova referring to the men's tennis event that featured Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in Geneva.
"I'm not really happy that we don't have it on our tour. But it's nice to see guys that are enjoying the time over there. I'm not really sure if we do have a space for that." Asked if getting crowd support makes her feel pressure, Kvitova replied: "The pressure is there when we are playing Fed Cup at home.
But not fans like here. It's like more energy for me, not pressure on my side." On her next match against Elina Svitolina or Alison Riske, Kvitova concluded: "I played Elina I think last year in Singapore. She's a good mover.
It will be probably about my game, how I going to put the pressure on her, if I going to face her. And with Alison, yeah, we played each other as well, but it's pretty long time. I think she is playing a little bit more flatter shots, trying to play more aggressive probably, as well. It will be similar game like today probably little bit."
