Petra Kvitova vs Anastasia Potapova: Preview
Petra Kvitova is looking to get some momentum before heading into the business end of the season as she saw a slight dip in her form since she won the 2021 Doha Open. After a quarter-final run at the 2021 Cincinnati Open, the 2-time Grand Slam champion lost in the 3rd round of the 2021 US Open to eventual semi-finalist Maria Sakkari.
Anastasia Potapova ends her streak of 1st round defeats as she advances into the 2nd round of the Ostrava Open having started the tournament as a qualifier. In the 1st round of the main-draw, Anastasia defeated France’s Caroline Garcia in straight-sets and will come into the tie confident going against the former World No. 2.

Petra Kvitova vs Anastasia Potapova: Prediction
The 20-year old Anastasia will come into the clash with a career Hardcourt record of 58-44 and a season record of 11-11 on the surface while having a 19-19 record across all surfaces this season having played majorly on the lower levels. Petra will take the court with a career Harcourt record of 259-132 and a surface record of 15-9 for the season having gone 26-15 across all surfaces so far.
Petra seems to be the clear favourite given her better record, her recent form and experience as compared to the Russian youngster.
Prediction: Petra Kvitova to win in straight-sets.
