The relationship of Czech tennis player Petra Kvitova was most talked about when she announced engagement with Radek Meidl. Their time together was however, short-lived. Kvitova also had a few other relationships before Meidl. Here are a few details about her relationship history.
Who was Petra Kvitova engaged to?
In December 2015, Petra announced her engagement to Czech hockey player Radek Meidl. Meidl was born in November Czech Republic on 25, 1988. He is currently plays in the National Ice Hockey League (NHL) for Leeds Chiefs. Meidl made his Czech Extraliga debut playing with HC Oceláři Třinec during the 2015-16 Czech Extraliga season.
Both Kvitova and Meidl being athletes sounds good for a relationship, but things do not look as good for them to spend time together when you consider the sports they are into. One plays in the winter and the other is busier in summer. This what Petra Kvitova had to say when the duo decided to split only a few months after their engagement.
“He’s an ice hockey player, and he understands my job and I understand his. But it’s still very different. “He’s playing in the winter in the Czech Republic, and I’m playing in the summer which is weird,” she said.
Who else has Kvitova dated?
Four years before Meidl, Kvitova had her first relationship. She had fell in love with fellow Czech tennis player Adam Pavlasek. The relationship stood for two year and they broke up in 2013. But very soon, she had found another partner in another Czech tennis player. This time it was Radek Stepanek, who is known to have dated a few tennis stars. The relationship however, was shorter than her previous one, standing only one year.

Petra then started dating the Czech ice hockey player Radek Meidl. They seemed to have been living a good life, but for their mutually contradicting sporting schedules that allowed them very little time together. Their decision to live together in 2015 was hence short lived, and they parted ways soon after.
