Kordová finished second after defending the title in Belmont

Cordova played the second tournament after a four-month break, in which she was treated with a blood clot in her hand, which required her to undergo surgery. “Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. If you told me a few months ago when I was on call, I would be here now, I would be overjoyed,” said the former 23-year-old daughter of former Czech tennis player Petr Korda.

Two years older, Kupchová scored her second victory of the season and career after the April triumph at this year’s first major Chevron Championship. “It was tight. I’m proud to have managed to compete with these players. It was a big fight to the end,” she said.
