Kvitova, Konta win in Wuhan


WUHAN, China: Double Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova and Briton Johanna Konta made convincing starts at the WTA Wuhan Open as the tournament was hit by a wave of retirements on Monday. Kvitova served six aces —mirrored by her teenage opponent’s six double faults—to sweep to a 6-3, 6-1 victory against Latvian Jelena Ostapenko. Meanwhile, Konta eased past German Annika Beck 6-2, 6-1 to get her campaign off to a flying start.
