Kvitová wins Aegon Classic in Birmingham


Czech tennis player Petra Kvitová won the Aegon Classic tournament in Birmingham, just six months after sustaining a career-threatening injury. The two-time Wimbledon champion defeated Australia's Ashleigh Barty 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in only her second tournament since the start of her comeback. Kvitová was sidelined for five months after she was hurt during an attack at her apartment, sustaining injuries to her left, playing hand. She returned at last month's French Open, where she lost in the second round.
