Kvitova joins Sydney International field

Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova is the latest player to join a star-studded women’s draw for the Sydney International in January.

The Czech will be returning to an event she has already won once, in 2015, and is looking forward to an uninterrupted season after sitting out much of this year following a home invasion in December 2016.

She joins seven-time grand slam champion Venus Williams, reigning French Open winner Jelena Ostapenko and US Open champion Sloane Stephens in the women’s draw, as well as defending Sydney International champion Johanna Konta.

“I’m really looking forward to being back in Sydney in January, particularly because I wasn’t able to play there this year,” said Kvitova.

“It’s a beautiful city and the tournament has attracted a top field this year which will make it a great test before the Australian Open.”

Headlining the men’s side of the draw is defending champion Gilles Muller and former top 10 player Fernando Verdasco.

The Sydney International will take place from 7-13 January.
