Exciting Weekend: Kvitova Wins Again

“Kvitova will win in straight sets,” said the New York Post photographer sitting next to me before the match even began. He was right. No contest. Petra Kvitova beat Magdalena Rybarikova in the Ct. Open singles finals, 6-4,6-2, held at the Ct. Tennis Center Saturday.  Kvitova has now won the event twice in the last 3 years and will compete in the U.S. Open in New York this week. The two close friends played before a lower than average crowd of 3,285 Saturday but overall attendance for the event was up, 47,140 from 45,796 in 2013.
