Petra Kvitova outplays Clijsters to win in Paris!

20 year old Petra Kvitova outplayed the newly appointed #1 player Kim Clijsters 6-4, 6-3, to win the GDF Paris tournament. The young Czech player, who has been getting better and better with each match, showed both maturity and control as she methodically took the Belgian apart. Clijsters was out served, out hit, hot foxed and outplayed.

I was reminded of a similarity between Kvitova and Graff, and if this young player continues to improve she may wind up as the next top player on the WTA tour. She has what it takes. A great serve, a big forehand, wonderful defense, and an uncanny knack for anticipating her opponent’s tactics. She played confidently throughout the week in Paris, and defeated an in-form Yanina Wickmayer on her way to today’s final. This match was much closer than the final, and was the best match of the week.
