Petra Kvitova: Took second Wimbledon title in July but is not totally on form
Kvitova is coming off a triumph at Wimbledon but she has otherwise struggled for consistency over the last two years.
The Czech claimed her second title at the All England Club in July, beating Eugenie Bouchard in straight sets in the final.
The title brought to an end a frustrating period for the 24-year-old, who seemed set to take over as the world No 1 at the start of 2012 before dropping off the pace.
In 2014 Wimbledon has been the exception rather than the rule, her next best effort being a run to the semi-finals in Madrid.
She lost in the first round of the Australian Open and third round of the French Open and suffered early exits at both of the US Open tune-up tournaments she participated in. She has never gone past the fourth round of the US Open.
The left-hander possesses huge power from the baseline and is a destructive force on any surface if she manages to find a rhythm.
