Petra Kvitova


P. KVITOVA/P. Hercog
7‑6, 6‑1

THE MODERATOR:  Questions, please.

Q.  This first set was obviously the key today.
PETRA KVITOVA:  Yeah, I think the tiebreak was really key.  I'm really glad that I won it.  I had 6‑4 and I did double‑fault, so it wasn't very easy for mentally.
But yeah, I stay calm and focused and it's helped me a lot.  The first set is very close, and I'm very glad that I won it.  Then it was important to break her serve.
Then when I kept my serve, it was much easier.

Q.  You played a lot since the French Open.  How do you feel coming into this US Open with all the victories you had in the summer?
PETRA KVITOVA:  I'm feeling very good.  I mean, with the victories it's always much easier.
So, yeah, I think yesterday I was a little bit tired physically, but today was pretty good.  I was surprised in the morning.

Q.  You have asthma.  Are you doing something in the States?
PETRA KVITOVA:  I have to say that my asthma improve a lot the last two, three years.  But still in the North America and in New York it's always tough for me.
But I have inhaler, so if I can't breathe, I using on the chair.
