Barbora Krejcikova won the Prague Open final on Sunday, defeating fellow Czech Tereza Martincova to win her third championship in four tournaments. On Prague’s hardcourt, world number 13 Krejcikova defeated 78th-ranked Martincova 6-2, 6-0 in one hour and five minutes.

In May, the 25-year-old Krejcikova won in Strasbourg, and in June, she won at Roland Garros. At Wimbledon, she was defeated in the last 16 by eventual champion Ashleigh Barty.

In Prague, she regained her winning form, winning 20 of her last 21 games. “I’m really happy it ended up like this,” Krejcikova said.

“Tereza is playing great tennis these days, and it wasn’t as clear as it looks,” she added.

Martincova, who was playing in her first WTA final, was more aggressive early on, but her resolve did not last long, as Krejcikova broke her for a 3-2 lead. Martincova was largely restricted to the baseline by Krejcikova’s varied game, which was based on a solid serve and forehand. She won the first set with relative ease. Martincova crumbled, and second-seeded Krejcikova sailed through the second set to take it to love.

Krejcikova will fly to Tokyo for the Olympics on Monday, where she will compete in singles and doubles with Katerina Siniakova, with whom she has won three Grand Slam doubles titles, including the French Open this year.
