Petra Kvitova won the Madrid Open title for the third time on Saturday with a 7-6 (8-6), 4-6, 6-3 victory over Kiki Bertens. World No. 10 Kvitova, who was also the champion in Madrid in 2011 and 2015, has now claimed four titles in 2018 after triumphs in St Petersburg, Doha and last weekend in Prague.
