What Happened at the 2019 WTA Prague?
Swiss qualifier Jil Teichmann became the surprise winner of the title when she defeated wild-card entrant Karolina Muchova in the final in a tense three-setter. She won 7-6, 3-6, 6-4 to clinch the title. This was following the withdrawals of Petra Kvitova, Karolina Pliskova and Marketa Vondrousova from the tournament.
Second seeded Anastasija Sevastova, fourth seeded Mihaela Buzarnescu, fifth seeded Danielle Collins and seventh seeded Viktoria Kuzmova were all losers in the opening round of the tournament.
The 2018 edition of the tournament featured a very promising draw, with Kvitova and Pliskova leading the opposite brackets as the top two seeds. The remaining slots were filled by Daria Kasatkina, Daria Gavrilova, Strycova, Zhang Shuai, Buzarnescu, Katerina Siniakova, and Aliaksandra Sasnovich.
The first round saw more than five of these top eight seeds fall, with Pliskova withdrawing from the tournament altogether. In such a scenario, Camila Giorgi and Buzarnescu moved on to dominate the bracket and eventually met in the semifinal. The Romanian won that match in three sets to reach her second final on the WTA Tour that year.
In the opposite half, it was business as usual for Kvitova. She stormed past her opponents in straight sets, overcoming Natalia Vikhlyantseva, Katerina Siniakova, and Zhang in the process.
In the final against Buzarnescu, Kvitova lost her first set in the tournament. However, backed by the crowd and her massive experience, she won the match 4-6, 6-2, 6-3.
