Today was really about the nerves: Petra Kvitova after beating Paula Badosa

The Czeck radiant, 29-year-old flawless marvel, Petra Kvitova had earned her way in to the third round of ’20 AO on Wednesday (January 22nd), as the 22-year-old Spanish spesh, Paula Badosa, had put up a good fight and the Seventh Seed had to press really hard to leave the Rod Laver Arena as a winner on Wednesday’s’ (January 22nd) second-round ’20 AO match.

Although, Petra Kvitova had secured her spot in to the third-round with a straight-set 7-5, 7-5 win over the 22-year-old Spanish young fab, the scoresheet could not chalk up the entire narratives as the Czeck Seventh Seed had to flare up seven aces alongside four break points amid a highly windy condition to cement her way in to the next round, where she would meet the 25-year-old Russian 25th Seed, Ekaterina Alexandrova.

Meanwhile, adding Wednesday’s (January 22nd) second-round match against the Spanish young flair took a heavy toll on her nerves, the 29-year-old immaculate Czeck, Kvitova said in a post-match press conference on Wednesday, “Today was really about the nerves, about the wind, about the opponent.

I really wasn't playing probably my game which I wanted to play. I was struggling with the serve a little bit sometimes. I was down 4-2, but I was managing to win it somehow. Three set points in the second set. But I think in the end of the day I think this match is kind of important to have, for sure. ”
