Petra Kvitova vs. Casey Dellacqua: Rogers Cup Round 2 Preview
Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova will have to get her act together rather quickly as she will be up against the resurgent Casey Dellacqua of Australia in the 2nd round of the Rogers Cup in Montreal on Wednesday. Can the Czech powerhouse notch up a straight forward win on the day?

Former World No.2 Petra Kvitova will be seen on court for the very first time since her perfect performance in the Wimbledon final against the Canadian Tennis Princess Eugenie Bouchard. In fact, it was one of the finest displays of grass-court tennis from her on that particular day as she simply took Bouchard to the cleaners – outplaying her in every aspect of the game to eventually bag her second Major title in just over 50 minutes of play.

Kvitova has won the Rogers Cup in the past in 2012 when she took advantage of a depleted field because of the London Olympics and last year, when the event was held in Toronto she made it through to the quarters. The North American hard courts have generally not been happy hunting grounds for the southpaw as the heat and humidity there has never helped her cause. Being an Asthma patient, Kvitova experiences a lot of issues while competing in Canada or in the United States.

On the other hand, Casey Dellacqua too has enjoyed a stellar season so far, improving her WTA ranking from No.130 to 31. Dellacqua is extremely happy in her life at the moment as motherhood has given her a big reason to stay positive and that positivity can very well be seen on the courts. Her standout performances in 2014 have been a run to the pre-quarters of the Aussie Open, to the round of 8 at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells and the semis of Birmingham.

Head-to-Head: It would be the first confrontation of the two players on the ladies’ circuit with Kvitova coming into the clash as the hot favorite.
