Petra Kvitova Eases Past Bencic and Into Fourth Round at Australian Open

It didn't take long for Petra Kvitova to book her ticket to the Round of 16 at the Australian Open. 

Petra Kvitova took down Belinda Bencic 6-1, 6-4 to make it into the second week of a Grand Slam for the first time in over a year.

The two-time Wimbledon champion failed to make it past the third round in any of the Grand Slams last year but booked her ticket to the next round at the 2019 Australian Open with a straightforward win over the Swiss player.

Kvitova now faces a fourth-round match against American Amanda Anisimova, who has taken Melbourne by storm with a number of impressive wins against higher-ranked opposition.
