Fed Cup final chance for Kvitova to save season

- Associated Press - Wednesday, October 31, 2012

PRAGUE (AP) - Petra Kvitova regards the Fed Cup final this weekend as a last chance to salvage a season after her stellar performances in 2011.

Kvitova led the Czech Republic last year to its first Fed Cup title in 23 years, and this weekend will defend it at home against Serbia.

She also won the 2011 Wimbledon crown. This year, she's 45-16 with two titles.

Despite withdrawing part way through last week's elite WTA Championships with a viral illness, Kvitova hoped "to be 100 percent fit on Saturday" for the opening singles.
