For the second straight month, there's a repeat WTA Player of the Month.

Nature Valley Classic champion Petra Kvitova earned your votes to top June's ballot to earn her second Player of the Month award, after winning her first in February following back-to-back titles in St. Petersburg and Doha.

The Czech claimed her tour-leading fifth title of the season with a successful title defense in Birmingham, dropping just one set en route to the title. 

In the final against grass court specialist Magdalena Rybarikova, Kvitova found herself down a set after losing the opener, but rebounded in emphatic fashion to win her fifth trophy of 2018, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2.

"I'm already pleased with this part of the season," Kvitova said. "I couldn't imagine to have five titles this time of the year, so I'm pretty happy already."

Over the week, she also defeated Johanna Konta, Daria Gavrilova, Julia Goerges and Mihaela Buzarnescu in straight sets.
