Kvitova moved quickly into a 3-0 lead at the start of the opening set before going on to close it out 6-3 with minimal fuss.

However, Pliskova, who recently won the Korea Open, fought back emphatically in the second as two breaks of serve saw her clinch it 6-2.

Both players dropped serve at the start of a cagey deciding set, but a decisive second break for Kvitova allowed the two-time Grand Slam champion to secure the victory 6-3 2-6 6-4.
