Kvitova: 'I was surprised with how I played, I didn't have expectations'

Petra Kvitova's Roland Garros campaign ended in the second round as she lost to Bethanie Mattek-Sands 7-6(5) 7-6(5). The Czech player was still satisfied with the way she played even she lost. 'I think it was good fight, and I think in the tiebreak showed that I don't really have matches under my belt. So otherwise I feel good. I mean, I didn't really have time to prepare or practice as much as I wanted, but I feel good. I'm happy that I'm back. I still do have the motivation inside, which is good. And of course the throwing racquet show that I'm a bit angry, as well, to me. A couple of double faults in the tiebreak, it's nothing really nice. It's something what I need to improve. But of course, I didn't have that many serves in the practices, so I'm just taking as it is. We'll try to improve it and to fight again and again and again and forever, and, I don't know how I think it will be.'

Asked what was her goal coming to this event, Kvitova replied: 'I didn't really have expectations here. Just came to, you know, open my comeback, kind of. The mission is completed, which I'm very happy for that, and I'm happy that this all ended. I just will focus now for grass and for the tennis again. Wimbledon should be much more relaxed afterwards. I really am looking forward to being there. It's a really great tournament for me. I have the best memories which I can have.
I think that, you know, my game still suits on the grass, and I will do my best to be there. I will really enjoy the time to be there. We will have a house again in Wimbledon Village and will be similar to other years. I'm happy that I will not miss Wimbledon this year. Actually, I hope
', said Kvitova, who still doesn't know where she will play before the third Grand Slam event of the season.
