#27 Svetlana Kuznetsova
5' 8˝" 161lb RH 2H-BH

#4 Petra Kvitova
6'0" 154lb LH 2H-BH

    On Saturday in Spain, in the final of the Mutua Madrid Open, the 2011 Madrid champ (and 2015 champion at Sydney), 25 year old 4th seeded #4 (career high: #2) Petra Kvitova from Fulnek, Czech Republic, defeated the 2009 French Open (and 2004 US Open) champion, 29 year old #27 (career high: #2) Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), 6-1, 6-2 (Svetlana is shown during the match; Petra is shown holding the hardware afterward).

    Petra's prize is €799,450 (about $904,004 US); Svetlana's prize is €392,000 (about $443,267 US).

    Petra said: "I knew that I had to play aggressively because Svetlana's a great player on clay, and the last time we played in Paris, I lost to her when we played the normal rallies. So I knew that I had to make a lot of winners, and I knew I that had to go for the volley if I got the opportunity. That's what I was trying to do, and it worked well. I'm glad everything went how I wanted." WTA story

    Petra now leads Svetlana 4-1 in career matches. Their previous meeting was in 2014 on red clay in the 3rd round of the French Open at Roland Garros, when Svetlana defeated Petra 6(3)-7, 6-1, 9-7.

    Petra is now 16-5 in WTA singles finals, and has a 19-5 singles match record this season. Svetlana is now 14-21 in WTA singles finals, and is 11-10 in matches this year.

Vika and Serena firing forehands

    Victoria struggled with injuries in 2014. Serena said: "She's absolutely on her way back. It's so good to see a Grand Slam champion like her playing so well. I'm always rooting for her when she plays. Yeah, so it's good to see her on her way back. She's clearly doing great." WTA story

    Vika said: "I think overall it was a great match. I think the one negative part I can take about today is the result. Overall I felt like I played a pretty high level, I was there on every point. It just didn't go my way in the end, but overall I should take more positives out of today."

Maria twisting a serve

    Maria said: "I think really in the third it just came down to a few points. I think [Caroline] was the more aggressive player in the third set. She was going for a lot. Of course I could have had a higher percentage of first serves. Even on some good second serves she stepped in and hit some really good shots and there was just not much I could do. I think the percentage from her dropped a bit at the end." WTA story

n4 s4 Petra Kvitova CZE d n41 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova RUS 6-1, 6-4

Petra driving a backhand

    Petra said: "I'm glad I did everything well. Especially that I served well. The last game was really important, and I made it from 0-40. I'm happy for that for sure. I didn't expect that I was going to play three, four matches here before the tournament, so I'm really glad to still be in." WTA story

Serena serving

    It was Serena's 27th consecutive match victory, her 19th straight win at Madrid, and her 50th consecutive match victory at WTA Premier Mandatory events.

    Serena said: "I approach everything as I want to do the best that I can. I'm so determined for every single point. If I lost the match, it's okay, as long as I know I gave the best I could on that day." WTA story

    Carla said: "[Serena is] playing her game, dominating and hitting some really good winners. The winners just come out when she plays. Everything works for her."

n3 s3 Maria Sharapova RUS d n5 s5 Caroline Wozniacki DEN 6-1, 3-6, 6-3

Maria driving a forehand

    Maria said: "I think I became a little bit more aggressive at the end. I was so far back for a long period of time after winning the first set. I definitely thought that was an improvement, something I started doing better in the third. And opening up the court a little bit more and then moving forward. I was staying too far back and letting her get in the rallies, which she's really good at." WTA story

Serena serving, and Petra following a forehand

    Petra had been 0-5 in previous matches against Serena. Petra said: "For sure I'm happy I won today. I had never beaten [Serena], so it's a really special moment for me." WTA story

    Serena said: "I think [Petra] just played well today. I mean, she went for broke on every serve, every return. I hit some second serves, 170, 175, and she just hit them for winners. I was very slow off the mark. After my serve I wasn't moving as well as I should have. You know, I wasn't in it. I wasn't Serena today. I think that was the main thing."
