Kvitova calls Dubai a mini major

by: Matt Cronin February 21, 2013

Former Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova has high praise for the depth of the Dubai field.

The world’s top two of Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka were in the draw before pulling out with injuries. Kvitova beat world No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska, 6-2, 6-4, today to reach the semifinals.

“Well I mean, it’s like a small Grand Slam,” she told reporters. “Everybody is playing there, so I can’t say that I have any chance I will win. I play my best I can.”
