Prague, Czech Republic (SportsNetwork.com) - Petra Kvitova rallied from a third-set deficit to beat Germanys Angelique Kerber, clinching a third Fed Cup title for the Czech Republic in the last four years. Kerber was primed to keep Germany alive in the best-of-five tie, up a break in third set, but Kvitova erased a 1-4 deficit by winning the last five games of the match to give the Czechs an insurmountable 3-0 advantage in the weekend series. Kvitova blew a trio of match points before finally prevailing in a 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 6-4 triumph. The two-time Wimbledon champ also beat Andrea Petkovic in Saturdays opening rubber and now owns a 23-6 singles mark in Fed Cup play. It was an amazing match and Im just glad I did it, said Kvitova. It was up and down from the beginning of the match and I had to fight for every single point. Maybe I was just lucky in the end. We will celebrate now. The Czechs also won the title in 2011 and 2012, losing to Italy in last years semifinals. Germany was bidding for its first Fed Cup crown since 1992 and lost to the Czechs for the third time in as many meetings over the past five years. The Germans avoided a shutout on Sunday when the doubles team of Julia Goerges and Sabine Lisicki notched a 6-4, 6-3 win over the Czech tandem of Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka. The second singles rubber was not played. Kerber, who lost to Lucie Safarova in Saturdays second singles rubber, held a 5-2 lead in the opening set Sunday, but Kvitova fought back with a pair of breaks to even it at 5-5. Another Kerber break gave the German the chance to serve for the set, but she couldnt close it out and the tiebreaker eventually went to the Czech with a forehand winner to close out a 76-minute first set. Kvitova then had the upper hand in the second set, breaking twice for a 3-0 lead. Kerber, though, broke twice to even it, and another break gave the German the set. In the decisive third, it was again Kerber that opened a lead at 3-0. A backhand winner in the second game gave the German a break and another backhand pass made it 4-1, but it was all Kvitova from there. After a Kvitova hold, a Kerber error in the next game gave the Czech the break she needed and she hit three straight winners in the following game to even the set at 4-4. A forehand winner put Kvitova ahead with another break and she opened a 40-15 lead in the next game. Kerber saved two straight match points, the first on a Kvitova double fault and the second with a forehand winner. She then saved a third match point before faltering on the fourth with a shot into the net, ending the marathon just three minutes shy of three hours. Im a little bit sad, but it was an unbelievable match, said Kerber. Now its over. It was still a great experience to be in the final. The Czechs deserved to win it.
