Wimbledon champion Petra Kvítova and teammate Tomáš Berdych had straight-set victories over their French opponents at the Hopman Cup in the Australian Perth on Saturday, giving the Czech Republic its second Hopman Cup title. Kvítova won the last three games of the first set and went on to beat the French Marion Bartoli 7-5, 6-1, while Berdych beat French Richard Gasquet 7-6 (0), 6-4. This is second time the Czech Republic has won the eight-country fixed-teams title; its first victory at the Hopman Cup took place in 1994, when Jana Novotná and Petr Korda beat Germany in the final.
