Kvitova wins her first title
Petra Kvitova has won her first Sony Ericsson WTA Tour title. She defeated Iveta Benesova, 7-5, 6-1 to win the Hobart International tournament. The left-handed Kvitova, who reached the French Open round of 16 last year, is ranked number 49 in the world. That ranking will be higher, of course, on Monday.
