Birmingham (UK): Petra Kvitova described winning the Aegon Classic title as "a fairytale" just six months after a career-threatening stabbing incident at her home. Kvitova saw off Australia's Ashleigh Barty 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in Birmingham.

The two-time Wimbledon winner was stabbed in the Czech Republic in December. "I'm very happy. I didn't expect this in my second tournament after my comeback. So yeah, I think it's kind of a fairytale. I think I've been through a difficult time in my life, and it wasn't about the tennis, but about coming back healthy and alive and move my fingers properly and everything like that. And this is something special."
