• Czech player continues to build towards Wimbledon
When you can’t stop winning, just keep going. Less than 24 hours after arriving in Eastbourne following her victory in Birmingham at the weekend, Petra Kvitova adjusted quickly to the change in conditions with a 7-5, 6-3 win over Kateryna Bondarenko of Ukraine on Tuesday to book her place in the third round of the Nature Valley International.
In glorious sunshine and just the slightest breeze, the 28-year-old Czech won five straight games from 3-1 down in the second set to earn her 38th win of the year, the most on the WTA Tour. It was not her most fluent performance but she got the job done as she continues to build towards Wimbledon, where she won in 2011 and 2014.
