Petra Kvitova advanced to the last four of the Western & Southern Open by beating Australian qualifier Ajla Tomljanovic 6-2, 6-3 at the Linder Tennis Family Center in Cincinnati on Friday afternoon.

Kvitova, ranked No 28, will face American Madison Keys next.

“I didn’t feel the best,” the Czech said despite winning. “I started not great, but I somehow handled the first game and she already had break points. I think it was really, really important, actually, for the whole match then to keep it up.

“I was tired, but I was, like, ‘Ajla has to be tired, as well, because she went going from the qualies and she had late matches. So it was really battle talking with myself whole match. Yeah, so it was a nice match, I think, even the score looking how it’s looking. It was a good one, and I think Ajla really had a great tournament.”
