Petra kvitova advances to 2 round of the French open 2017. #Emotions

On a normal day, a 6-3, 6-2 first round win by a two-time Wimbledon champion and current world No.16 over a player ranked 70 places lower would generate little comment; and nor, when the higher-ranked player triumphed, would that person usually drop their racket in disbelief, tears in their eyes on and on their cheeks, while the crowd rose in acclaim. Petra Kvitova’s opening day triumph on Court Philippe-Chatrier was the exception. In circumstances that were anything but routine, she produced a victory over not just her opponent Julia Boserup but very much more.
It is barely five months since the Czech suffered career-threatening injuries to her playing hand when an intruder at her Prostejov apartment attacked her with a knife. Just last Friday she confirmed that Roland-Garros 2017 would see her restored to competition, and at 11.09am on humid Parisian morning, she struck her first ball in anger since she and her compatriots lifted the Fed Cup last November.
