Petra Kvitova has had a poor year so far and is yet to win a title. She started the year in Sydney making it to the semifinal. She did well again at the Australian Open and once again ended up a losing semifinalist to Maria Sharapova. In February Kvitova was injured and wasn't able to take part in a tournament. Still recovering from the injury, the Czech failed to make an impact at the Indian Wells and Miami.
In the clay court season, the World No.4 did well making it to the semifinals of both Stuttgart and then Roland Garros. At Wimbledon, current champion Serena Williams ended her reign in the quarterfinal of the event. At the recently concluded Olympics, the Czech once again fell short of expectations losing to Russian Maria Kirilenko in the quarters.
Her opponent - Bartoli has 28-17 win loss record this year and has 7 career singles titles to her name. She must be hoping to add one more title here in Montreal.
Both the players have met two times before and Bartoli has won each of them. Last time they met at EASTBOURNE last year where Bartoli won 6-1 4-6 7-5.
