Petra Kvitová won the Madrid Open on Saturday evening, beating Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 7-6 4-6 6-3 in an encounter lasting almost three hours. The two-time Wimbledon winner, who had knocked compatriot Karolína Plíšková out in the semi-finals, became the first woman to win the tournament three times.
Kvitová’s triumph in Spain came a week after she won the Prague Open and brings her WTA titles tally to four this season and 24 overall.
