The world No3 had beaten Andrea Petkovic 6-2 6-4 on Saturday before a thrilling 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 6-4 win against Kerber on Sunday.

Lucie Safarova played her part, too, beating Kerber 6-4 6-4 in the second singles match to give the hosts a 2-0 lead yesterday.

“It was an amazing match and I’m just glad I did it,” said Kvitova.

“It was up and down from the beginning of the match and I had to fight for every single point. Maybe I was just lucky in the end. We will celebrate now.”

On social media, Kvitova gave an intriguing glimpse into Champagne-fuelled post-win celebrations in Prague.

“Champagne shower!!!!! #czechfedcupteam #pojd”

German duo Julia Goerges and Sabine Lisicki defeated Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka 6-4, 6-3 in the doubles to make the final scoreline 3-1.

This is Czech Republic’s third title in the last four years, following previous victories in 1975, 1983-85, 1988, 2011 and 2012.
