Kvitova, Giorgi roll into semifinals at Rothesay International Eastbourne

Heavy hitters Petra Kvitova and Camila Giorgi grabbed straight-sets wins to storm into the Rothesay International semifinals on Thursday.

No.14 seed Kvitova, a two-time Wimbledon champion, eased past last remaining Brit Harriet Dart 6-3, 6-4 in 1 hour and 25 minutes of play.

Earlier, No.12 seed Giorgi of Italy won the first quarterfinal of the day, cruising past lucky loser Viktoriya Tomova of Bulgaria 6-2, 6-1 in just over an hour.

In their first meeting, Kvitova was a force to be reckoned with behind her delivery. The Czech, who won her two Wimbledon titles in 2011 and 2014, hit eight aces and was never broken. Kvitova faced just one break point, which came in the very last game of the match.

“I’m always trying to serve well; sometimes it’s working more, sometimes it’s not,” Kvitova said.

“Today I didn’t have a weak game, so it was nice to have for sure, especially at the end of the match when it’s always tough to close it out.”
