Tearful Kvitova puts trauma of knife attack behind her

"I love you thank you for everything you've helped me through this hard time and I will always be grateful to you", Kvitova said her post-match interview, via The Express.

"After a little break when the rain came, I caught the racket and it was a little bit weird, but after one point everything was OK". They bore t-shirts saying, "courage, belief, pojd!" - the Czech word for "come on!" "That's one of the things I felt like I needed is new inspiration, someone that knows exactly what I'm going through, you know, on the court, off the court"."The AELTC is always pleased to welcome former champions back to Wimbledon, and would be delighted if Petra Kvitova is able to compete in The Championships this year", Wimbledon said in a statement to Reuters."After two weeks I took off the splint, and I started to rehab actively"."With the heart, anything is possible", Kvitova said. Top of the list, and still ranked No2, was three-time victor Serena Williams, now expecting her first child. In front of a sparse crowd making their way through tough security, she displayed exquisite drop shots and lightning-quick forehands.

Boserup is at a career-high ranking of 85 with no clay-court form to speak of, so it was a kind draw, but it was heartening to see Kvitova looking so much like her old self.

Petra Kvitova has made a winning return to tennis as she became the first player to reach the second round of the French Open. "I'm really glad to have made the decision to play here", said 27-year-old Kvitova, who was seriously hurt when she tackled an armed intruder at her home in the eastern Czech town of Prostejov in December.

"I'm glad it's still there, still in the mind, still in the hand".

"I like playing at this time for women's tennis".

This was the first match on the main Phillipe Chatrier court and Kvitova added: 'It was a nice and really heartwarming welcome in Chatrier. The victory was an emotional one for Kvitova, who decided only last week to try to play in Paris. I didn't know how I will be ready.

"[Just a] few tears after the match point".

Normal service appeared to have been resumed, however, when the seven-time grand slam victor broke quickly back and went on to win the first set. "Of course going as a victor from the centre court was much better than stepping on the court".

"But I think that for all the staff, for the media, for seeing the opponents, the friends and people around, it's just really important to be here and to have done everything what I need to do to be more relaxed inside and more peace for the next coming tournaments, because I wanted to come back not just to play, but of course I still do have my goals, which I talk about in the end of the last seasons".

"I promised my doctor, who gave me the green light, that if I feel pain in my hand during the match or in the practice, I'm stopping immediately".

Kvitova moves into the second round to face the victor of the match between Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Evgeniya Rodina.
