Paula Badosa’s winning run continues at Wimbledon

Spanish No.4 seed ends Petra Kvitova’s Wimbledon campaign.
Before her third round against Petra Kvitova, No.4 seed Paula Badosa was keen to make an important distinction; while grass was not her favourite surface, Wimbledon was certainly one of her favourite tournaments.

Competing in the main draw at the All England Club for just the third time in her career, the 24-year-old Spaniard produced a clutch performance to end Kvitova’s seven-match winning streak with a 7-5, 7-6(4) victory on Saturday.
The result saw Badosa move into the fourth round at Wimbledon for the second straight year and earn a showdown with 2019 champion Simona Halep.

“As you know Petra is a champion and for me one of the biggest challenges is to play Petra on grass and today being able to play against her was already a pleasure. You can imagine how I feel after this win; for me it’s unbelievable,” said an elated Badosa of the two-time Wimbledon champion.
“I remember 2014, I came here to play juniors and one of the first matches I watched was on Centre Court, her, Petra winning Wimbledon.
“So you can imagine for me, stepping on Centre Court for the first time playing against a legend like her is really, really special. She’s been an inspiration for me in my career.”
