... and she holds to lead 4-3 with games on serve. Kvitova's power hitting earned her three break points early and then seven deuce points later in the game, followed by another two break points, after Barty had got back into it.

On a deuce point she dug out an amazing half volley in the back court to hold Kvitova at bay. This is superb, entertaining tennis on RLA. Barty then went to deuce again and a running forehand winner got her out of that hole when it looked as if Kvitova had the initiative. Stunning.A good recovery there by Kvitova given she hit a THIRD double fault and saved a break point chance for Barty. It's a tense atmosphere on RLA.She holds strongly to reverse the trend of Kvitova's early dominance.

Lucky for Ash, Kvitova hit two double faults in that game. Quite a terrible game from the Czech No.7 seed.
