Petra Kvitova was there in the media center at the courts near the Yale athletic complex. Kvitova will face Zhang Shuai in the first round.

“Yeah I meaN I love the people in New Haven for sure, I hope they love me too just a little bit,” Kvitova said. “I’m really looking forward to stepping on the court and feeling the crowd, and feeling the energy from them.”

“It’s something really special for me, I won this tournament three times already, and I just feel great here. It’s like my second home, so I’m really looking forward to my match again.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
