LONDON — Petra Kvitova beat fellow Czech left-hander Lucie Safarova 7-6 (6), 6-1 on Thursday to advance to the Wimbledon final and a chance to win her second title at the All England Club.

Kvitova, the only player born in the 1990s to have won a major title — here in 2011 — improved her record to 25-5 on the Wimbledon grass and she’s made at least the quarterfinals five years in a row.
