The Czech Republic team of Petra Kvitova and Tomas Berdych has entered the final of the 2012 Hopman Cup. Kvitova defeated Caroline Wozniacki 7-6, 3-6, 6-4, and Berdych then won his singles match, which clinched the finalist spot for his country. Kvitova wasn't easy to watch, I should add. She made so many unforced errors and missed so many opportunities, and the match dragged on and on. This was the "old" Kvitova, but with a twist: When it came time to win huge points and make a difference, she just focused and took care of the task. Not a good career strategy, but at least she knows how to do it.
On the other hand, one could say that--with all the opportunities handed to her on a platter by Kvitova--Wozniacki still lost the match. For the first two sets, however, Wozniacki was quite impressive, sometimes taking the ball fast and returning with more aggression than we've come to expect from her.
Kvitova looked tired to me, and I have to wonder whether playing Sydney is a good idea. Wozniacki, however, looked like her indefatigable self throughout the match.
