Thirteen wins, zero losses and one WTA Player of the Month award: Petra Kvitova won two Premier titles in the month of February, and she cruised to another commanding win this week.

The Czech earned nearly 80 percent of your votes in the February Player of the Month poll.

The St. Petersburg Ladies' Open and the Qatar Total Open champion won 13 matches in the second month of the year, a stretch which included six Top 10 victories and three against Top 5 players.

Champions Corner: Kvitova digs deep to double up in Doha

She edged Dubai Tennis Free Tennis Championships winner Elina Svitolina and Doha runner-up Garbiñe Muguruza for the monthly honor.

As it happened: Kvitova overcomes Muguruza to seize Doha title

"To hear all the statistics is incredible for me. After seven years to have two titles in a row, plus Fed Cup, it's really great for me. I think it was really worth it to take a wildcard into St. Petersburg as I see it now," Kvitova told WTA Insider after winning in Doha.

"I'm proud of almost everything. To transition from indoor to outdoor, the conditions are totally different. I lost the first set to Aga [Radwanska] in the second round and I thought, well I'm done here. I couldn't really move anymore. I don't know how, but I turned it around. Probably the experience from that match gave me a little bit something more in the match against Caroline [Wozniacki, in the Doha semifinals] and Garbiñe [Muguruza] today. I had great matches here and it's just great."

Kvitova will look to run her streak to 14 straight matches when she takes on Kazakhstan's Yulia Putintseva in the second round of the BNP Paribas Open on Friday afternoon.
