So who is Petra Kvitova?

Why, the tall Czech left-hander who's in the round of 16 at the French Open--that's who. Serious tennis fans have been watching Kvitova for a while. She had already beaten Ai Sugiyama, Anabel Medina Garrigues and Venus Williams before she arrived at Roland Garros. In Paris, she defeated Akiko Morigami and Sam Stosur to get to the third round, and today, she defeated number 12 seed Agnes Szavay, 7-6, 4-6, 6-2.

Kvitova's round of 16 oppoent will be Kaia Kanepi, who upset Anabel Medina Garrigues earlier today in a thriller of a three-hour match.
