The only disappointment was the usual sparse early crowd on Roland Garros' main court. "I won for the second time, if I can say", Kvitova said after the match. That was a dream.

"After a little break when the rain came, I caught the racket and it was a little bit weird, but after one point everything was OK". I think that was the key for the match. I will really enjoy the time to be there.

Petra Kvitova celebrated her comeback from being sidelined for five months with a hand injury, beating Julia Boserup of the United States 6-3, 6-2.

"The first point was unbelievable". I know in the last years I had always up-and-downs and right now I'm in actually the down feeling.

The German will be happy to leave Roland Garros behind, and hope to rediscover a game in which several cylinders are misfiring in time for Wimbledon, where she finished runner-up previous year.

Roland Garros served up joy and dissapointment on the women's side of the draw as Petra Kvitova made a winning return to the game, while Angelique Kerber suffered a shock defeat. My family was there. Kvitova hopes to make the third round of a grand slam for the 10th time in her last 12 tries.

"At the end of the match, it was really tough as I knew she wouldn t give it to me - I had to win it", said Makarova, a former semi-finalist at the Australian and US Opens. But, yeah, now I can not changing anymore and trying to looking forward'.

Kvitova has not yet decided on her grass-court schedule leading up to Wimbledon, with the priority being to ensure her hand continues to recover.

"I thought maybe I'd cry when I'd step on the court, but I didn't today". I mean, I believed in the second set, as well, that I can turn around the match and I was still believing until the last point'.

Fellow players were quick to offer their support to the popular Kvitova.

That picture offers the starkest of contrasts with a spectacular 2016 that also brought her major wins in the Australian and US Opens. "It's great and she's looking happy".

"Yesterday I was thinking how everything will be and I couldn't really imagine", she said. "I don't want to think of what she's gone through", added the Russian.

Tenista Rafael Nadal avanza a semifinales de Roland Garros

Kerber is not performing to the standards usually associated with the highest ranked player in the game after she won her first two Grand Slam titles at the Australian and US Opens past year.

"You can tell by her results in the past that she's a fighter and things like that won't knock her down".

Kvitova, 26, was injured when an intruder, under the pretense of checking a utility meter, entered her apartment in Prostejov.

"I didn't feel any differences, which is nice", she said.

"In my attempt to defend myself, I was badly injured on my left hand", Kvitova, 26, wrote on Facebook shortly after the incident.

The two-time Wimbledon champion's comeback ended in the second round of the French Open on Wednesday after a close match against qualifier Bethanie Mattek-Sands, who recorded her best result at a major in almost two years with a 7-6 (5), 7-6 (5) victory.
