The statistics surrounding Petra Kvitova’s 13-match unbeaten streak are stunning standing alone. That she has put together one of her best runs of play just over 13 months after her future in the sport was left uncertain after being attacked in her home is flat-out astounding.
Kvitova moved her record to 14-2 this season, after navigating a tough draw to win the Qatar Total Open. En route to her 22nd title, Kvitova defeated No.1 Caroline Wozniacki, No. 3 Elina Svitolina, No.4 Garbiñe Muguruza, No.10 Julia Goerges, and Agnieszka Radwanska, and moved her exemplary record in tournament finals to 22-7. After winning her first title of the season two weeks ago at the St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy, Kvitova has now won back-to-back titles for the first time since 2011 and will return to the Top 10 on Monday for the first time since June 2016.
With her Doha run, Kvitova’s record against Top 10 opposition in 2018 is now 6-0 and she will surge up the Porsche Race to Singapore leaderboard to No.4. Not too shabby for a woman who started the season at No.29.
