Petra Kvitova delighted with "emotional" Wimbledon semi-final win

Petra Kvitova insists that she will be focused when she takes on Eugenie Bouchard in the Wimbledon final after an "emotional" win over Lucie Safarova.

Petra Kvitova has insisted that she will regain focus for the Wimbledon final following an "emotional" victory over Lucie Safarova in the semi-finals at the All England Club.

The 2011 champion secured her position in the women's final, which gets underway on Saturday, with a 7-6(6) 6-1 victory.

"It's great, it was a tough match mentally because Lucie is a great friend of mine," Kvitova told BBC Radio 5 live. "I am just happy that I won.

"I tried to be focused from the start of the second set and I managed to break her service in the first game and just kept it going and I served well.

"I am just very emotional from this match, but I have two days before the final to focus but I know how it feels to lift that trophy so I will try my best to do it again."

Kvitova will face Canadian Eugenie Bouchard in the final following the 20-year-old's straight-sets win over Simona Halep.
