WTA Diary: Kvitova's Journey

Every week there's a lot happening on the WTA - on the court, off the court, by the numbers, even a few tweets... catch up on it all in this week's WTA Diary.

Belle Of The Ball
On Sunday, Petra Kvitova and company donned their glad rags for Wimbledon's Champions' Dinner.

Rocky Journey
Kvitova's coach David Kotyza admits that the journey to a second Wimbledon title has not always been a smooth one.

Moving On
While this grass court season will live long in the memory for Kvitova, many of her rivals have already consigned it to the rear view mirror. Among them are Sara Errani and Carla Suárez Navarro, who, after early exits at the All-England Club, got back to winning ways in Bad Gastein on Tuesday.

Doubles Delight
Errani may not have lasted very long in the singles, but it was not all bad news at Wimbledon. Alongside partner Roberta Vinci, Errani won the doubles title to complete their Grand Slam collection and return to the top of the rankings.

Record Breakers
Eugenie Bouchard (with a little help from Milos Raonic) helped make Wimbledon a ratings winner for Canadian broadcaster TSN.

Life On TV
Laura Robson spills the beans on her stint working for the BBC commentary team at Wimbledon.

Coaching News
Li Na's has parted company with her coach Carlos Rodriguez.

"I'm sorry, because I'd rather have finished it on a outright winner."

Tweet Of The Week
Andrea Petkovic arrives in style.
