Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova beat Ashleigh Barty 1-6, 7-5, 7-6 (3) in the women's singles final on Saturday at the Sydney International.

Jordan Thompson also made the last 64 after beating veteran Spaniard Feliciano Lopez in straight sets, 6-1, 7-6 (9-7), 6-3, and John Millman came through in four sets to defeat Argentina's Federico Delbonis 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (7-3), 6-2.

Down in the first set and looking in trouble in the second, the two-time Grand slam victor fought her way back to edge out Barty in a three-set thriller 1-6, 7-5, 7-6 (3).

The results continued an inspiring showing for the local contingent, with a trio of young Australians on debut - Astra Sharma, Zoe Hives and Kimberly Birrell - having kicked off proceedings earlier on day one.

"It was such a great final, to be honest". "I think they are punishing Aussies for playing deep in their home tournaments and I think that's not what they should be doing". I couldn't have left anything more out on the court. "I was cramping in the end".
