"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.

"[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".

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