Petra Kvitova in French Open semi-final

No. 7 seed Petra Kvitova breezed past unseeded German Laura Siegemund 6-3, 6-3 on Wednesday to reach her second semifinal at the French Open.

The last time she made it to this stage of Roland Garros was in 2012.

The two-time Wimbledon champion, Petra Kvitova, is yet to lose a set at this year's tournament in Paris, which has lost the top three seeds in the women's draw.

Roland Garros was where Kvitova made a return to professional tennis three years ago after being sidelined for six months following a burglar attack at her home that left her with severe damage to the nerves and tendons in her left hand.

“It means a lot to me, definitely,” Kvitova said in her interview after the match. “I didn't dream to be in a semifinal after everything that happened.

“Right now it's my lucky place, I'm really happy to be here, to play. I really missed it when I was off. I'm happy I'm still able to play and compete with the best.” Asianet Online
