As noted at British news sites that day, Petra Kvitova defeated fourth-seeded Victoria Azarenka of Belarus on grass in the semi-finals and will play in the Wimbledon 2011 Finals women’s championship.

Kvitova, an eight-seeded, became the first Czech woman to reach the All England Club tennis championship since 1998, when Jana Novotna won the women’s singles title.

“I can’t say anything; I don’t believe that I am in the finals of Wimbledon.” Kvitova was quoted as saying in a televised interview, as she lost to Serena Williams last year during the semi-finals.

Earlier, Serena Williams was eliminated from this year’s event after she lost in Round 4, with her older sister Venus having the same fate with less than two hours later.

Kvitova, a left-handed, was noted to have won the first set in 27 minutes but lost on the second set, and regained her momentum in the third set.

Petra Kvitova will face either Maria Sharapova of Russia or Sabine Lisicki of Germany in the finals to be held this coming Saturday.
