London: Former tennis champion Martina Navratilova believes that new Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova will dominate women’s tennis for long time.

Navratilova, a Czech herself, said Kvitova has kicked open the door that could lead to her domination of the women’s Tour.

Navratilova, the last ‘leftie’ to win the Wimbledon title, said: “There is definitely more to come from Petra at Wimbledon – she’ll win a lot more Slams, too.”

Navratilova, who won Wimbledon nine times, added: “Petra could easily be the next great left-hander after Ann Jones and myself.
