Czech Petra Kvitova lifted the Zhuhai Women's Tennis Association (WTA) Elite trophy after overcoming Ukrainian Elina Svitolina 6-4, 6-2 on Sunday.

Kvitova made a slow start and was broken in the fourth game. Finding herself 1-4 down, she quickly found her rhythm and swept five games in a row. The Czech dominated the second set by breaking Svitolina three times.

"I played her in Wuhan and I was broken down there as well from the beginning of the match. I just probably knew that it's still not the end, so I was just trying to play point by point," Kvitova said after the match.

Former champion Petra Kvitova started strong at the Wuhan Open, taking barely an hour to sweep past Latvian rising tennis star Jelena Ostapenko on Monday. Despite what has been a difficult year overall for Kvitova, there have been some encouraging signs of late, and she continued this upward curve with a dominant 6-3, 6-1 win over Ostapenko.

"I think the first time I lost to her (Ostapenko) in Doha, where I wasn't playing well. I didn't feel as well mentally. My tennis wasn't really in the peak, which always kind of interrupted my confidence," said the Czech, who also won the tournament's inaugural edition in 2014.
