Petra Kvitova has 27 career titles, but last week she was able to win the whole of the Czech exhibition tournament, and it was strange to play the two time Wimbledon champion in the absence of fans.

The tournaments in Prague were among the few events held globally following a tennis suspension of professional tennis at the beginning of March, when countries locked up to prevent COVID-19 spread.

Whereas former World Number Two still had a special occasion to raise the trophy in their home tennis club, where she won a WTA event two years ago, the feeling is not identical.

"I am sure I am pleased with the win, but the tournament was another one," said the 30-year-old dressed up for the French Open. The dress she chose was postponed. "It was also very strange to play without fans.

"We hit some incredible winners, and no one clapped, so it was really hard. But it's nice to feel the game again on the other hand.

Kvitova found it difficult to prepare for the event mentally because of lack of motivation for practice and training. The first match was hardest because she focused on the empty stands. Once she reached the semi-finals, she could focus more on her game.

But Kvitova said the players would learn to adapt without any alternative.
