Kvitova scores emotional win in return from knife attack
OUR MAY SUPERSTAR IS PETRA KVITOVA.
KVITOVA cruised into the French Open second round on Sunday as the Czech star returned from a lengthy lay-off after a harrowing knife attack at her home in December.
The two-time Wimbledon champion swept aside American Julia Boserup 6-3, 6-2 in her first match since suffering career-threatening injuries to her left playing hand when she tackled an intruder at her home in the eastern Czech town of Prostejov.
Kvitova was left fighting to save her career after the attack, admitting her hand was "still not 100%" while speaking to reporters at Roland Garros on Friday.
