Saturday was not a good day for the Czech women at Wimbledon 2022. Petra Kvitova (WTA 26) bid farewell, but faced a very tough competition. The two-time London event champion lost 5:7, 6:7 (4) to Paula Padusa (WTA 4). In the first set, the Spaniard won four consecutive matches of 3:5. There were no breaks in the second game and at the end of the first half the tennis player from the Iberian Peninsula concluded the promotion.

In the two-hour, five-minute match, Padusa scored 37 out of 53 points with her first pass. Saved 10 of 11 break points and used two of the nine breakout opportunities. The Spaniard finished the match with 16 hits at the end with 11 unforced errors. Kvitova has 34 direct wins and 31 fouls.

This was the second meeting of these tennis players. In the second round of the Australian Open 2020, they also had a fierce battle, but Kvitova was happy to win (7:5, 7:5). The Czech scored his 54th Grand Slam performance, and 14th place at Wimbledon. In London, she triumphed in 2011 and 2014. Padusa equaled her best result in this tournament from last season. He will face the Spaniard of Romanian Simona Halep in the quarter-finals of the Grand Slam, after Roland Garros 2021.

Roland Garros 2021 winner Barbora Krijkova (WTA 14) was eliminated. The Czechs lost 6: 2, 4: 6, 3: 6 Ajali Tomljanovic (WTA 44). In the two-hour and six-minute match, the two players scored four breaks. Krijikova (81-79) scored two more points. She had 26 final hits with 34 non-forced fouls. Tomljanović accumulated 16 straight winning balls and 26 fouls.

Wimbledon remains the only Grand Slam tournament in which Krezhikova has not reached the quarter-finals. The Czech gave her best performance a year ago when she reached the fourth round. Twelve months ago in London Tomljanovic reached the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam. The Australian will play France’s Alize Cornet, who finished the Iga Świątek series 37 winning games in a row, to achieve this result.
