Former champion Petra Kvitova swept into her second Wimbledon final with a 7-6 (8/6), 6-1 victory over fellow Czech and close friend Lucie Safarova Thursday.Kvitova won her only Grand Slam title at Wimbledon in 2011 and the sixth seed is one more victory away from lifting the Venus Rosewater dish for the second time after seeing off 23rd seed Safarova with 24 winners and eight aces in 80 minutes on Centre Court.Kvitova, the only player born in the 1990s to win a Grand Slam title, knew it would be tricky to face one of her closest friends in the first all-Czech Grand Slam semi-final.The momentum was with Kvitova now and she broke again in the second game of the second set, hammering a return which Safarova couldn't handle.
