Petra Kvitova regards the Fed Cup final this weekend as a last chance to salvage a season after her stellar performances in 2011.
Kvitova led the Czech Republic last year to its first Fed Cup title in 23 years, and this weekend will defend it at home against Serbia.
She also won the 2011 Wimbledon crown. This year, she's 45-16 with two titles.
Despite withdrawing part way through last week's elite WTA Championships with a viral illness, Kvitova hoped ''to be 100 percent fit on Saturday'' for the opening singles.
The draw Friday for the Fed Cup final between the Czech Republic and Serbia on indoor hard courts at the O2 Arena (reverse singles and doubles pairings subject to change):
Saturday Lucie Safarova, Czech Republic, vs. Ana Ivanovic, Serbia
Petra Kvitova, Czech Republic, vs. Jelena Jankovic, Serbia
Sunday Reverse Singles Petra Kvitova, Czech Republic, vs. Ana Ivanovic, Serbia
