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.

When Petra Kvitová lost grip to her racket after frustratations for a point loss. It really broke my heart, when she lost her calm. Fingers are crossed for finale.

Zejtra bombit první servis a v suchým triku pro trofej už se těším 😁

I v tom arabském světě. Držíme palce Péťě. V zemi kde mají šejky. Ať se jí daří brejky. Další úspěšné zápasy. Pro Lvici co vyrostla do krásy. Protože nejlepší i šikulka. Je naše a Kvitovic Peťulka. Dneska ještě v páru. Ale případně poraž i Báru. :-) Poojď. ;-)

Holky naše zlaté moc Vám to sluší 👍..... Držím palce na dobrý výsledek jedete 💕!!

Super holky,krásná fotečka.Přeji oběma hodně štěstí at' dojdete co nejdál,pojd'te.:)

Beautiful Czech girls in pink I wish you the best of luck in this great Tournament my Dear Petra Kvitova ❤❤🦁🙈😘

Good luck 😉 defcata 🎾👌😁😘

Come on Petra. I bet you'll play another great tournament 💪

love Barbora, saw her at the CT Open playing doubles with Andrea Hlackova and they won, She has a style of play that I like to watch..Good Luck Petra, hope you win at Dubai..

I love you both 🤩 ,,, best of luck 👍

Hi girls ...lovely pick good luck to you both.

Dearlovely&loveble Petra! How are you? I think you're very nice to call your firend Bara but think that in italina language & perhaps still in psanish it means coffin :) so it's better you chanhe that nickname or that you use it out of the latin context...:) I think that it's right you wear pink so you can work better & keep your focus on all your way to play on Court considering your next opponents speicifc qualities of play...Without distractions without fantasies, without sexual prevarications, without obsessive and possessive masculism.the real result on Court will be your it means the view of a wonderful woman like you're..It's right you can do it & win I hope that i wish you the victory!.. I read that you still have no sensitivity in some points of the thumb and index of the left hand. Maybe I just know a simple remedy.. Kiss your fingers all day with affection. :) It should work at the bottom of the Holy Gospel it is written that Jesus healed the blind man with saliva from His mouth so I think that perhaps it is also a matter of faith and love to heal completely from the evils of this world. Waht do you think about woman?😘 Finally I read still your last intervives made in Dubai & I thoguht about your nice way to recharge the batteries..Please fly to me perhaps a simple man like me can help you better than lot of artificial&reconstructed guys of theather 😘🌹😚Hugs&kisses & god bless your body&soul beloved woman of my dreams thoughts&actions...😍🌹🌼🌼🌼🌸🌼🌷🌹🥰Post scriptum...realx yourself with a good slept not only a nap&God will help you with His provvidence..don't worry about it. Bye Hugs&kisses again

come on!!! take these tournament 💪💪💪💪🎾🎾

excellent absolutely fantastic picture very very beautiful kvitova

Two super girls in one picture!

Petra u look soo gorgeous❤️❤️😍😍

Holky,jste kočky😍🇨🇿🎾ať se vám daří.Budu držet palečky.Peti ať vyhraješ další titul.💗

It is great to see you smiling with Barbora Strycova like this, after a very intense January, Petra. (Touching and releasing painful emotions can be exhausting, however, it is also healthy and healing. In a good way, it says even more about the extremely strong woman that you are, that you were again able to touch the pain and doubts about playing again, that you had, after the attack). I hope that you are recovering well (from January). The photo is very nice - with nicely matching pink shoes :)

Two beautiful women, tennis players, great Fed Cup couple!!

Good luck this week! #GoPetra 😎

Good luck in Dubai Petra cheering you on from England

pink is very becoming to you

Petra You great and beautiful!!!!!!

All the love Petra 😍😘

Sluší vám to holky, ať se vám daří a Petra opět hraje svůj skvělý tenis !! 👍🍀
