Ranked: 1st in Czech Republic

Petra Kvitová (Czech pronunciation: [ˈpɛtra ˈkvɪtovaː]; born 8 March 1990) is a Czech professional tennis player. Known for her powerful left-handed groundstrokes and variety, Kvitová turned professional in 2006 and has won 25 career singles titles, two of which are Grand Slam titles, the Wimbledon Championships in 2011 and in 2014. She also won a bronze medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Her career-high ranking of world No. 2 was reached on 31 October 2011 and as of 25 June 2018, she is ranked world No. 8 by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA). As such, Kvitová is the current highest-ranked left-hander on the WTA Tour as well as the second highest-ranked Czech, behind Karolína Plíšková.

Kvitová first gained notice upon defeating then-world No. 1 Dinara Safina in the third round of the 2009 US Open. This was followed by her first major semifinal appearance at the 2010 Wimbledon Championships where she came up short to eventual champion Serena Williams. Then, during her breakthrough season in 2011, Kvitová won her first major title at the Wimbledon Championships, defeating Maria Sharapova in the final, thus becoming the first player of either gender born in the 1990s to win a Grand Slam tournament title. She also won the WTA Tour Championships, thus becoming the third player to win the tournament on debut, the others being Williams and Sharapova. She also helped lead the Czech Republic to victory in the Fed Cup final that same year. It was the Czech Republic's first Fed Cup title as an independent nation.

In 2012, Kvitová made the semifinals of the Australian Open and French Open, and was also crowned US Open Series champion. That same year, she also won the Hopman Cup alongside Tomáš Berdych, which was the Czech Republic's second and most recent Hopman Cup title. In 2014, she won her second and most recent Grand Slam title at the Wimbledon Championships, defeating Eugenie Bouchard in the final. In 2015, Kvitová achieved the feat of making the quarterfinals at all four Grand Slams after advancing to her first quarterfinal at the US Open, where she lost to eventual champion Flavia Pennetta. In 2016, she won the WTA Elite Trophy in her first appearance at the tournament, thus becoming the first player ever to win both categories of year-ending championships on debut.

Welcome to New York and play well Petra

Good luck petra

Thank you for going through your different recovery processes Petra, and sharing about them. With depression, I find, and am reminded by professionals in mental health, that only small steps are possible at times. But, the intention, going in the right direction, is important. Sometimes there only appear to be small steps in the same place, but then later you look back and realise that you were moving forward a little.

I often see you competing through the TV screen. Your achievements will continue to climb. By the way you looks more btiful tonite.

You should be good after your name day all the best we love you

The very best of luck my Tennis Queen!

Wish you the best petra

Great to see you in New York, go Petra

Team Petra ready!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻Good luck sweet Petra!!!🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

Přeji všem pohodu a úsměv a Petře hodně zdraví, štěstí a dobrou mušku při zápasech !! 👍🍀
