Wimbledon 2015: Petra Kvitova at a loss to explain Jelena Jankovic defeat
Petra Kvitova admitted that she did not know what happened to her game after her defeat by Jelena Jankovic
Petra Kvitova admitted that she was at a loss to explain what happened to her game after the defending champion was knocked out of Wimbledon by Jelena Jankovic in three sets.
The world No2 slumped to a 3-6 7-5 6-4 defeat by the 28th seed to set up a clash with Agnieszka Radwanska in the last 16.
“It’s tough to explain. If I knew what happened, I would tell you,” said Kvitova.
“But really I’m not really sure what happened out there. I was up in the second set. Suddenly I felt like she’s coming back, playing a little bit aggressive.
“Suddenly from my side, I didn’t have answer for it. My serve didn’t help me at all this time, as well. I was really struggling with each shot which I played.”
Meanwhile, world No5 Caroline Wozniacki reached the fourth round after beating Camila Giorgi in straight sets.
“It was nice to win this one,” said Wozniacki. “You never really feel comfortable against a player like her.
“She hits the ball as hard as she can. Thankfully for me, it wasn’t really going in that much. I also kept serving well and I returned well, which was a big help for myself today.”
