"Genie still stuck in her bottle"
Petra Kvitova is from the Czech Rep, she is 26 years old, but has slipped down the rankings to 15th now. She is 23 and 17 on the year and has won 65% of her career matches on hard courts. She has struggled a bit this year but at the Olympics showed signs of getting back to her best. She beat Makarova, Svitolina and Keys to claim the bronze medal although she lost to eventual gold medalist Puig in the semi-final. Kvitova is gearing up her game in time for the US Open which starts on Monday.
Genie Bouchard is slowly trying to get back to how she was playing in 2014 when she was winning everything. However she is a long way off those dizzy heights. The year started well when she made the final in Sydney in January. then another final in KL in March. BUT since then she has not won more than 2 matches in any tournament. In Montreal she lost in the 3rd round to Kucova and Rio she was unlucky to draw Kerber in the 2nd round and lost. Bouchard is 29 and 19 on the year and has won 61.2% of career matches on hard courts.

Court surface: New Haven hard court.
