Kvitová is still set to lead Czech women in Fed Cup Final

The coach of the Czech Fed Cup women’s tennis team, Petr Pála, said on Tuesday that he is not planning yet on replacing Petra Kvitová in this weekend’s Fed Cup final in Prague. The leading Czech female tennis player left the WTA finals in Istanbul last week early, because of illness and has been trying to recover ever since. Kvitová played an exhibition match against Maria Sharapova in Prague on Monday, but was not in great shape. The 22-year-old will take an endurance test on Thursday, which will determine whether she will lead her teammates against Serbia.
