RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil
Petra kvitova strode purposefully past former caroline wozniacki and into the third round of the Olympic Games on Monday.
A match that had been billed as a potential banana skin for Kvitova turned out to be remarkably straightforward as she closed out a 6-2, 6-4 win in an hour and 38 minutes.
Kvitova's only slight wobble came when serving for the match, a couple of wild errors helping Wozniacki pull back one of the breaks. However, there were no nerves at the second time of asking, a love hold seeing her book the first spot in the last 16.
