Second Serve


World No.12 Petra Kvitova beat the crafty Karolina Muchova 6-3 6-3 in the final of an all-Czech tennis tournament held in Prague on Thursday.

The event in Prague - contested by Czech men's and women's players and with out spectators – represented a return to normalcy, as did the fact that it was Kvitova, a 27-time WTA titlist, who came away with the trophy.

Missing from action were World No.3 Karolina Pliskova and last year's French Open finalist Marketa Vondrousova—and a proper handshake after the final.

Kvitova and Muchova tapped racquets and traded sheepish smiles before heading off the court.

Kvitova did not drop a set in the event, which also featured top pros Barbora Strycova, Barbora Krejcikova, Lucie Hradecka and Katerina Siniakova On the men’s side, 20-year-old Michael Vrbensky beat Zdenek Kolar 6-4 6-7 (5-7) 10-8. The 405th ranked Vrbensky upset World No.65 Jiri Vesely in the first round.
