Former World No. 2 Petra Kvitova has won hearts with splendid performances over the years. The Czech star was first noticed when she beat Dinara Safina back in the 2009 US Open. In 2011, she won her first Grand Slam title at Wimbledon when she beat Maria Sharapova. After that, Petra won again at the Wimbledon championships in 2014, taking her Grand Slam tally to two.
As of today, the current World No. 9 is in Australia. She is preparing for the first Grand Slam of the season.
Players are in isolation and are following the protocols issued by the governing bodies. After serving a 14-day quarantine period, they will be allowed to resume training on the tennis courts.
Recently, Petra voiced her opinion on the recent days. She said, “I don’t know. I finished my last season in Paris and then I didn’t have a match (until now). So it was a lot of hours only training. I did a lot, I was in Dubai for 12 days as well for fitness preparation. I know the nerves will be there as well. But I will look forward to it.”
The Czech player seems eager to get back to competing. She’s been training hard to get back to competing on the biggest of stages. The 2019 Australian Open finalist knows what it takes to earn success at these stages. She is ready to face challenges in the near future.
In the previous season, Petra reached the semifinal at Roland Garros, matching her best performance at the event, which was in 2012. Following that, she ended her season without winning a title on the women’s Tour.
